Book Review of Someone to love

My Review

The best message that I received from the book is

“Do you know what I wish someone had told me?” Ma had asked.


‘That we all have very little time.’

“Live, don’t just exist.”

 The beauty and the elegance with which the author has described the scenes will keep you spellbound. I was completely immersed in the story and the intricate description of human feelings.
How can someone so elegantly describe the storyline touching the human emotions?

Hats off to the author for pulling out a brilliant story from her story reserve and thanks for sharing the book with the world!

The separation, hatred and staying far apart from the one you love and at the same time meeting your love after a decade. How does one stay away from the person you love for so long and the moment you see him so close to you, can you still stay away?

Ruchita Mishra has described what happens when the soul mates meet after such a brief period of time. Read the book to find out more about Athrav and Koyal, the two lovebirds of the story.

From being the best friends from school to strangers at latter part of their life, each having had gone though one’s turmoil of life, will it be easy to find the lost love or is it lost forever?

Someone to Love will take you in a journey of finding the true delicacies of life and how do you find your true love even though it is far from you.

I just wish the person I love can come back to me at some point of life and honestly speaking I would love to steal her for a moment and never return.

Long lost love! Can I or will I find her again?

Still searching for the one question where did I go wrong and did I really do any mistake proposing 

Can you please come back? Please!!

'I received a copy from Writersmelon in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.'

About the Book

Not everyone is lucky enough to find this kind of love. Koyal and Atharv are childhood friends. They are also soulmates. Confidantes. Kindred spirits. They are made for each other – only, neither of them seems to have figured it out just yet. As they grow into adulthood, they turn to each other in sorrow and joy, only becoming closer. But then one day, something happens and their rare friendship is cruelly transformed into something a lot like hatred. Atharv, scarred and hurt, fumes with anger, while impetuous Koyal presses the self-destruct button. 

Years later, just when they’ve both found peace within themselves, their paths cross again. And destiny, that strange creature, has a few tricks up her sleeve. Will these two ever forgive each other? Or have they already lost their one chance to find someone to love?

Book Review of Puzzle of Fate

My review

The book asks you a question like

“Is your fate predetermined or

Can you change it?”

Well it is a pretty tough job for anyone to answer it. The next second I was thinking like, how can I change fate? Is it even possible even if I do, won’t it be called as fate?

How can we be sure about fate and I was all geared up to find the answer for the question. The pages that followed had quotations on fate or destiny as you call it.

I loved the quotes and those are really inspiring and will change your attitude towards life for sure. Incredible stuff!!

But as I moved ahead in the quest of finding the answer, I was disappointed with the fact that instead of inventing a new way, the author chose to elaborate the ideas, factors and sub factors that are related to a person’s fate.

The author has made a concept of “House of Fate” which will help you in better understand the fate and the factors relating to it.

From genes to environment to economic status of parents, to death in a society or pet to community to leaving one’s country. The author has elaborated a person’s life in details and how different circumstances affect a person mentally and psychologically.

I enjoyed a major part of the book about fate but I wished for the author to teach me the tricks of the trade to change my fate and propel my life in the way I did want, but it became as a Moral Science class for me and mostly I thought that it can replace Home Science class in colleges.

The book has so much to teach about a person’s life that you don’t need to read any other book about fate than this book. Superb work and an incredible effort by the author to describe Fate as he believed in!

About the book

Is your fate predetermined, or can you change it?
Written by a scientist and inventor with a PhD from MIT, "Puzzle of Fate" systematically fits together the myriad factors that build and shape the fate of any given person and provides a method for mapping the way to the best possible future-the Unique Summit.
Drawing on a wide range of disciplines to present a pioneering approach to self-discovery and self-improvement, "Puzzle of Fate" introduces the concept of the "House of Fate," a configuration of six interconnected groups of factors that, taken together, encompass the whole of human experience. The unique, science-based conclusion of the book is that fate is the logical outcome of interactions between these six groups of factors.
Grouped into the factors that individuals have no control over, those that allow limited control, and the one with reasonable control, these aspects of life are explored in great detail. Readers are then invited to make the most challenging and potentially valuable examination of their lives.
Through awareness of the six groups of factors as well as the concepts of Happiness and Quality of Life, readers are ultimately encouraged to manage their fates and reach their Unique Summit.

Book review of Artificial Gravity

About the Book

Geologist Alex Cave receives an urgent message about an unusual geologic event in Iceland, and descends deep into the lava tube of an ancient volcano.
He discovers a 180-million-year-old alien artifact of incredible power, but before he can take it to a safe location, it is stolen and activated, and begins changing the orbit of the moon.
He must also deal with the kidnapping of his live-in girlfriend and her ten-year old daughter, and as if that wasn’t bad enough, a massive emerald asteroid with a core of solid gold is on a collision course with Earth and will impact in six-days.

My Review

The world of cosmos has always fascinated me and till date keeps me in the hunt to read new discoveries that are happening in our solar system and beyond.

This is the only world where your imagination is more important than your knowledge and every time you look into space there is something new happening ironically speaking something might have happened some million years ago and we see or discover it today.

Alex Cave series is just an incredible testament to the cosmological world, which breaks the boundaries of imagination and takes you to a world where the impossible happens and you bear witness to the fascinating world that is unrevealed.

Alex a geophysics teacher is called to Iceland to look into the gravitational changes that makes molten lava fly out of a volcano. How can such a thing happen and who can be behind that?

Alex leaves to find out the mystery and the as you keep on reading you will find out the adventure that follows.

On other part of the world Alex has a beautiful girlfriend Fala and her daughter, Halona and a dog Barney. Due to the adventurous nature of Alex he is constantly on the move around the world to solve the next mystery. Fala doesn’t like this adventure junkie and is irritated when Alex moves out of town or in fact country to solve the mysteries of the world.

Torn apart between his love for solving the mysteries of the world and his love for Fala he has to choose either of the both. And it is going to be a tough task!

The story illuminates the life of Alex and his emotion that forces him to choose between love and profession, this story will make enlighten you about the mysteries of life and how should you deal with your own life.

Nevertheless there is a gravity machine that is causing all the havoc and moreover it has changed the orbit of moon. And two villains Essex and Janice Sloan are behind the gravity machine where they wish to make a fortune out it. Their irresponsible behaviour and the lust for money have caused the upheaval on earth.

Alex does all he can to stop the madden gravity pull of moon towards the earth and to safely dispose the gravity machine, when a new problem comes into picture and Alex and his partner Okana have to use the Gravity machine to save Earth from the danger that is fast progressing towards the Earth.

What is that is going to damage the Earth and how vastly will it affect Earth, keep turning the pages to find out what happened next?

Incredible piece of story and filled with raw emotions and the need to the Earth over loved ones makes Alex a true hero. What will happen when the entire ordeal is over? Will Alex move on with Fala or will he be the adventure junkie he is?

The sequel of the book will reveal the facts!

Hoping to read the sequel soon and honestly speaking it was that kind of book that I didn’t want to put down until I have read it to the last page.

Book Review of The Remnants

My Review

Love stories that tear you apart and still make you fall in love with the story has the ability to change the way feel about romantic novels. Such is a story of two love birds Danny and Rose both young and in love long to be with each other for eternity, until fates decides otherwise.

Danny a young rebellious young man and as fate decides have to join the army as a consequence of the unfortunate incidents that lead him to be a part of the army and has to travel across nations to serve the interests of the motherland. Tired and heartbroken he wishes every war to be his last so that he can be with his love. The story has a twist and to find out what happens to Danny keep reading and under what circumstances he finally meets his love.

Rose on the other hand is a young housemaid trapped in a family heritage of serving the royals. But again fate has different plans for miss Rosie, she is thrown out of the her line of service and chooses a different career of being in service in a ship named SS Glorious that sails to various parts of the world. She still loves Danny but as fate has decided different path for both of them, how will she find the time take its toll and will they ever find each other in this big world.

Join W P Osborn in the journey where lives change in a flick of eyelids.

The only thing that I didn’t like about the book was the grammatical errors and typos. If I ignore that then it is a great book which describes the turmoil’s of war how lives can change when you are so far apart from your true love.

Book Review of Sleep Then My Princess.

My Review

The book is one of the classic suspense and crime thriller. The eerie atmosphere that surrounds the story will make you uncomfortable at times. But the way the events take place one after the other will keep you in the hunt of what gave way to the events that followed.

Stephani Robbins a young tissue scientist is disturbed by a stalker who sends her roses, teddy bear and photos of her past. She panics when she receives an anonymous call from the stalker and seeks help from her friend Richard.

But one day when she moves out of her apartment with her niece Donnie, she is kidnapped by the stalker and now everyone around her try their best to pin point her location.

At this point there were two suspects who could have kidnapper her and you have to read further in the story to find out what happens next.

What I didn't like about the plot was that it was predictable as to who was the kidnapper and that didn't do any good revealing the kidnapper soon in the story.

The author could have kept the suspense till the very end.

I did love the story and had a great time reading.

About the book

Sleep then My Princess is an emotional thriller set in Arizona. While mourning the death of her husband, Senior Tissue Engineer, Stephani Robbins, is plagued by recurring visions of a child being locked up in a chicken coop. Meanwhile, someone is sending her creepy love poems, roses, and photos that have been taken without Stephani's knowledge.
As more photos appear, the police suspect that Stephani has hired someone to take these photos. Before she can convince the police to take her seriously, she is kidnapped. While imprisoned she discovers why she has been having these visions and it is more chilling than she ever imagined. Can she make it out alive?

What some of my beta readers said...
"Wow! You've got a thriller with a level of horrific reality here.
You take the reader inside a perverted serial killer's head and an innocent woman whose life has been ripped from her and whose present season of recovery is being trespassed. You describe the love of an adoring niece for her mourning auntie and this connects the reader to the prologue and adds another level of emotion to this already captivating plot.
What a book!"

"I have to say 'wow' because your writing style is so picturesque. You show a every detail to plainly. I was captured right away.
The showing is real and to telling, which is a top virtue in any real book.
The main character Stephanie has a sassy attitude underneath all of the hurt. Her story is heart breaking and so deep I felt her agony.
This is a worthy read."

"O.N. Stefan, this one is so chilling and well written. The villain jumps off the page at the reader and scare the bejeebers out of you. You descriptions of the lab scene in the first chapter are right on and her getting the poem was quite spooky. The conflict of the mother and Puddles was well done showing just the type of upbringing or lack of this man had. High stars!"

"I think you have a great novel here. The prologue is intense and urged me to keep reading, as well as setting the stage for when she discovers the pictures to give a sensation of malice. Your voice is exciting and the dialogue is good. It does seem more formal at times, but that is to be expected when having highly educated characters. I especially like your detailed descriptions and the use of medical terminology."
