Respites Like Tochi Mess in Miran Shah, North Waziristan

Tochi Mess (Miranshah, FATA) which dates as far back as 1904, still harbours the bricks, lamp posts, cupboards and doors of that time. While standing there, I could feel the echoes of the past telling me a story of defiance and perseverance. A lot of wars have been won and lost in that region and…

Our Chemical Hearts

Hello everyone! I shamelessly ignored my blog for past two months and was barely active on Instagram and Twitter, a lot has been going on. On a brighter note, I finally managed to scrap some motivation to read a few books and here I am trying to pen down my thoughts on Our Chemical Hearts…

New World: Rising (Spoiler-free Review)

Omg! That ending, it literally killed me, can’t wait to read the sequel. πŸ™ˆ Solid 4.5* || New World: Rising is a really good & fast paced dystopia, set in a time where the earth has been destroyed somehow, and we are left with only two cities – Tartarus, a place ruled by 5 savage…

Uprooted (Spoiler-Free Review)

Inspired by Eastern Europe’s folklore, Uprooted is a work of art and a really good fantasy in the true sense.

My Life Next Door (Spoiler-Free Review)

Truthwitch (Spoiler-Free Review)

Despite all the negative reviews I read over bookstagram and goodreads, I thoroughly enjoyed Truthwitch, and will be diving right into Windwitch. This book taught me that you cannot judge a book by reading only 10-20% of it, sometimes the story actually picks up after 100 or so pages. I know Truthwitch kind of fails…

Rebel of the Sands (Spoiler-Free Review)

Set in Miraji (desert), it’s a Middle-Eastern Fantasy with djinns, magic and a crazy road trip. The fusion of Arabian mythology with a western setting was something different than the usual. Amani, an orphan, believes that somewhere, something better is waiting for her, if only she could escape her hometown, Dustwalk, where she would end…

Nevernight (Spoiler-Free Review)

First of all let’s get this out of the way. I know many people didn’t like Nevernight and a few couldn’t even read beyond 100 pages, but friends this book ended up in the pile of my all time favorite books. Why? Because I really like overly dramatic stuff and most importantly it gives me…
