REVIEW: In The Realm Of The Unknown by Girish Shirodkar


1.The Tree of Terror— In the darkness of a stormy night, the unseen dwellers of a gulmohar tree attack a college student and his companion during their stay at a college hostel. Although the student, quite dramatically, escapes the deadly blow of the haunters of the dark, his friend is killed.

2.My Midnight Acquaintance– Upon receiving a phone call from his father, a college student sets out to his village at midnight. While on the way he meets an old man who invites him to his hut. Strangely enough, the student realizes later that he was called not by his father but the same old man, the purpose being very special.

3.The Lord Datta Temple--- Girish and his friend, John, one dark night, set out for a stroll. On the way they notice a deserted house and a well. Curious, they cross the fence and peep into the well. The soul of a priest hovering near the well then possesses John, and pursues Girish with the fury of a mad hound.

Written to the utmost perfection, 'In The Realm Of The Unknown' is a scary delightful read with terrific twists and turns. The vivid description of the events and characters instilled life in the stories. I could feel each and every word written so clearly that at times the scenes actually spooked me out and gave me goosebumps. 


The author has a unique writing style, he did use some complex phrases but the narration was smooth throughout. I am not talking about the plot because it would be the ultimate spoiler and I really don't want to spoil this one for you. But I'll tell you which one I loved the most, 'The Midnight Acquaintance' is my personal favorite from this collection.

Cover- The cover is not up to the mark as per me. It could have been a lot better. The cover page is something that demands immediate attention and encourages the readers to read that particular book. I've myself picked a lot of books based on the cover alone. The cover page should never be neglected, it gives an idea about what lies inside.


Title- I liked the title. It's an apt reflection of the content inside.

A teeny tiny suggestion for you guys, read this book at night with the lights switched off to get all the spooky feels! 
Kudos to the author for his creativity. Great job! I'd love to read more novels by you man!

Five Things 'FIVE FEET APART' Taught Us

'Five Feet Apart' is an American Romantic Drama,  inspired by a real-life couple Dalton and Katie Prager, who both suffered from  cystic fibrosis . As you all know that I'm not a movie person, I'd choose books anytime over movies but as I am going through 'Reader's Slump' so I decided to watch Netflix and guess what? I found this treasure. This movie impacted me greatly so I decided to share all my takings with you all. Let's start! 1. Live Big because life don't give us enough chances. 2. Take risks , you never know which moment is your last.  3. Love! Don't be scared of it. Loving won't kill you but not doing it will surely kill a part of you. 4. Take chances! We can die today, we can die tomorrow but we can also make our life worth living. 5. Breathe! Take a deep breath and enjoy your today. We are all on borrowed time. Instead of focusing on making your tomorrow good, make your today even better.

REVIEW | BOUND BY HONOR BY CORA REILLY

Born into one of the leading Mob families in Chicago, Aria Scuderi struggles to find her own path in a world where no choices are given. Aria was only fifteen when her parents betrothed her to Luca – The Vice – Vitiello, the oldest son of the head of the New York Cosa Nostra to ensure peace between the two families.  Now with eighteen, the day Aria has been dreading for years is looming dangerously: her wedding to Luca.  Aria is terrified of marrying a man she hardly knows, especially someone like Luca who got his nickname ‘the Vice’ for crushing a man’s throat with his bare hands. Luca might be one of the most sought after men in New York thanks to his good looks, wealth and predator-like charisma that radiates power ,  but the society girls throwing themselves at him don’t know what Aria does: that the bad boy aura isn’t just a game; blood and death lurk beneath Luca’s striking gray eyes and arrogant smile. In her world a handsome exterior often hides the monster withi

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly. Cara She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her. She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra. And now she was at his mercy.

REVIEW: Broken Knight by L.J. Shen

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending. Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower. Sweet. Caring. Charitable. Quiet. Fake. Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language. Who taught her how to laugh. To live. To love. Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero. Gorgeous. Athletic. Rugged. Popular. Liar. This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna. But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore. When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes. Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy TITLE- Broken Knight AUTHOR- L.J. Shen FORMAT- E
