Review of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I remember this book being all rage two years ago. I know, it's been 6 years since its release, but my friends were all gaga over it after the movie came. I knew it was a psychological thriller and the girl was crazy. But that was my minimal knowledge pertaining the book. I wanted to read something different and I picked up Gone Girl randomly. I was amazed and frankly disturbed after reading this. And I guess that was the author's intention.

Review of American Gods by Neil Gaiman

I was watching a video in YouTube and saw Kanan Gill say he really like American Gods a lot and I really like Kanan Gill a lot. And since then the book was in my TBR shelf on Goodreads. I picked up this book last week finally and I completed the book in exactly a week. The book is definitely unique. I loved the entire concept. Something no one's ever thought before and kudos to Gaiman for that. Anyway, the entire book was a roller coaster ride. One I had mixed feelings about.

Review of Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

A novel released in 1961. Catch-22. It wasn't my plan to read this book at all. Somebody gave me its paperback and I was intrigued. And when I realized that the book was an intellectual paradox, I was challenged. So I kept on reading and I discovered gold. Actually scratch that. I discovered a rare gem that is one of a kind. I fell in love with this timeless monument of war.

Review of Marriage of Inconvenience by Penny Reid.

I have waited with baited breath for this book to release! I am a huge Penny Reid fan and this book being the finale of Knitting in the City series I could hardly wait for it. Also, there was the fact that throughout the whole series there are umpty hints about Dan and Kat, this was inevitable.

I loved Mary's book - Dating-ish. It was quirky, unique and witty. I was expecting something similar with this book. But, what I got here was completely different. Dan and Kat weren't at all what I expected.

Review of Fires of Winter by Johanna Lindsay

Fires of Winter by Johanna Lindsey. I have become quite fond of historical romances recently. My TBR shelf contains majority of HR books.
I love the fact that I get to learn about a whole different world along with a whole new story. That is why I wanted to try out historical romances set in a different age and different time than the 18th and 19th century England. And my quest led me to Johanna Lindsey's Fires of Winter. A book that is almost 40 years old!
This is set in 9th century in northern Norway i.e the Viking Age. I know a little bit about Vikings. I had heard that they were riders, marauders and murderers who pillaged villages and town and stole everything of value and enslaved the defeated folk. Well, they are everything aforementioned and more.

Review of Transcendence by Shay Savage

A friend of mine on Goodreads suggested this book to me. I haven't read anything of Shay Savage before. But, as I read the blurb, I was intrigued. A real caveman? Bring it on! But what I got was not at all what I had expected. And in a total good way. Transcendence wasn't like anything I've read before. It cannot be classified as Historical as that will be pushing it. It could be said time travel, though it isn't a huge part of the story. But, we can definitely say it's a romance. It is one the most sweet romance I've ever read.

Review of At the Duke's Pleasure by Tracy Anne Warren

After finishing the second book in the series it's now time for His Grace, Duke  of Clybourne! Since the first book I have found Edward intriguing. And after reading the blurb I wanted to know more about Claire and Edward. I'm so glad I did, because I enjoyed this book. The shadows under my eyes will testify for that!
