Book Review of The Broken Girls written by Simone St. James

The Broken Girls written by Simone St. James is a masterpiece which goes through stories of murders, deception and the fear of oneself and experiences we live through.


The story revolves around Fiona Sheridan whose sister Deb was killed twenty years ago and Fiona thinks there is more to the crime that was committed.


Then comes  the story of four girls who met in the now closed Idlewild Hall in the 1950’s. The Idlewild Hall is known to be haunted. Who or rather what haunts Idlewild Hall?



The book opens on a scary tone and snaps you back into the narrative with its interesting characters and revelations.


The title itself is an indication towards the storyline and one gets to witness the massive effect various dangerous events in the past always had a traumatic effect on women & children.


There are two stories going in the book, one is in 1950 and one in 2014 but not once you lose your attention from either of the stories because every detail which doesn’t drag keeps you hooked and the horror of the book keeps you on your toes.


The Broken Girls not only focuses on murders, the history of the world but also on a very integral part of a community that you are forced to look at whether you like it or not.


The author beautifully captures the spirit and the essence of every character keeping you on the edge.


Without revealing too much this book gets 4 stars for its impeccable language, the sublety of every character and how attached the author can make you feel to a story & scare the hell out of you. .
Don’t forget to read it. Definitely has to be on your TBR.

Book Review of Frosted Glass written by Sabarna Roy

Frosted Glass by Sabarna Roy is a collection of short stories and poems which reflect on human nature through a protagonist whose name in all the stories is the same yet the stories are entirely different.


The author explores the human nature by pointing out the various masks we as individuals wear in different scenarios and at the end we have the desire for lust, love.


The author through his explicit description of sex moments and exploring the sexuality of the protagonist is the main point where you understand what the author is trying to say through his stories.


The protagonist with his story of a lost lover,a cheating wife, the betrayal of a friend wants to portray how the human traps himself in the shenanigans of life and wants the world to take pity on him.


Roy’s stories are harsh, brutal and the truth we hide away from. In the end the author ends his story with the finish of the character.


The book based in Kolkata and Mumbai goes through the various historical events in the book like the communist movement and the plague which hit West Bengal in the past.


Sabarna Roy writes poems which speak of the want of love in his life. Love in the form of friendship, a mother’s love,a lover’s caressing lap and when that comes to an end, how it comes to an end.


Roy digs into the complexities of the human nature and mind by which he wants to say that humans are not straight as an arrow but the desire to love,to soak in all the love we can through the way we understand best and that is the physical way of sex or lovemaking.

When one shall read, you can read it in his words the love the protagonist craves and though all the stories are not interlinked,they go through a graph in the protagonist’s life but in different scenarios.


Frosted Glass is a book that really boggles your mind and puts questions infront of you, you wish you had an answer to. A perspective and writing style I haven’t read before, Frosted Glass is indeed a intriguing and thunderous book with stories and poems that will certainly will be enjoyed.

Book Review of My Ramyeon Girl written by Nethra A

My Ramyeon Girl written by Nethra A is a story that explores the prevalent racism in communities against particular communities.

A love story between a Korean star and an Indian girl.

Book Cover

The book establishes both the protagonists well with supporting characters playing an equal part.

Nethra writes about pre-conceived notions that still exist in the society.

Nethra also talks about body-image and how if possible the society plummet an entire person’s life through their racist attitude be it in any race or country.

The love story stands out in the book which I feel should have been emphasised more.


The protagonists come from different spaces of mind giving the author space of conflict and different point of views.

A light read targeting a grave issue. Must read.

Book Review of The Feeling Of Being Loved By Raviraj Mishra

The Feeling of being loved by Raviraj Mishra is a story of a young girl Shruti who is searching for Love & she feels she is going to find love with her college crush she left 5 years ago.

Book Cover

Raviraj Mishra writes a story of every young girl will resonate with. The search of Love by Shruti has been crafted beautifully.


The author shows us Shruti’s past but doesn’t drag it too much.


The author also raises the issue of the objectification of  women and you yourself feel the angst along with the protagonist.


The ending is beautiful and emotional and funny. Not ha-ha funny,but amusing funny.


This book needs to be read by all the youngsters who are searching for love or questioning love.


You will find a lot of your answers you ask yourself everyday.


I love how the protagonist is not perfect and the character sketch is of a regular girl.


This book wants to tell a story of love, faith, kindness and self-discovery.


I enjoyed this book and thank the lord it’s not a sappy, romantic one. I hardly read synopsises now.



Read this ebook. Have fun.
