Review: Lethal White

Rating: 3.5 Stars I think it was a mistake to read this book right after reading Career Of Evil. For one, I kept wanting to read one more page till I realized that I had spent all night reading it, and for another, it was not because of the mystery but because I just wanted... Continue Reading →

Review: Career Of Evil

Rating: 4 Stars First of all, I don't know why I didn't read this book earlier, considering I have had this one since it came out in 2015. My excuse is that I made the mistake of reading reviews which said that it ended on a cliffhanger, and that it would be years before the... Continue Reading →

Rating: 3.5 Stars Another day, another thriller. This one, while above average, still fails where it counts the most.... the climax. It's not a boring book, not at all. It is so interesting that once I started reading, I found it hard to put it down, and finished it in one day only. It was... Continue Reading →

Review: Stardust

Rating: 4 Stars Stardust by Neil Gaiman follows Tristran Thorn as he sets off on a quest to find a fallen star; and not just a random fallen star, but the one that his beloved Victoria Forester saw falling! Tristran Thorn, born under strange circumstances, and brought up in the very boring and sleepy English... Continue Reading →
