Carla by Michael Gryboski – Book Review

Hello All!!!

I am here with another brand new book review. Thanking the author Michael Gryboski for sending me a copy of the eBook.

Let us head into the review;


My Review

  1. We meet the female protagonist of the story, Carla Al-Hassan, a girl with a strong will power, who is involved in political assassinations to pay her grandfather’s medical bills.
  2. I must highlight the main character of the story, well I loved her! She is truly amazing. The way she faces all the challenges, the way she endures pain and finally the way she stands for her own rights is intriguing.
  3. The story is very powerful and speaks about a deeper truth that prevails in the modern society.
  4. It speaks all about the battles of people for the thirst on power and politics.
  5. The setting of the story is created in such a way, that you simply visualize each and every aspect of the story.
  6. Definitely arouses the curiosity of the reader, and makes them want to know what will happen next. That is the main reason for me to stick with the book, until the end.
  7. Yes, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, and personally feel that it should be a “must read” for each and every book lover.

You are The Best Friend by Ajay K. Pandey – Book Review

Hello Lovely Book Lovers!!!

Another book review from my blog. Saw this book on Amazon, had no idea what it was all about. But, after reading, I felt so  blessed to have read a true love story.

So this is it;



Ajay has lost his wife and is deep in depression. No amount of medication or therapy seems to help him as he struggles with his grief. He has only one wish—he wants to immortalize his wife.

Then, he meets Anisha, who is shocked at Ajay’s hatred towards God. How can a person hate God? Where would that hatred lead him? Anisha is ready to judge Ajay harshly, when a simple, caring and guileless gesture changes her perception of him.

So begins the journey of two people who are poles apart. A journey which will change their outlook towards life.

A bittersweet tale, told very simply, by a man who lost everything, except his ability to find humour in the world. This is the story of Ajay who finds a second lease of life. What helps him? A friend? Or the love that he finds again?

Bestselling author Ajay Pandey takes you on another emotional roller coaster with his scintillating new book that will reaffirm your faith in life.(from Goodreads)

My Review

“Everyone has a friend during every stage of life. But only the lucky ones have the same friend in all stages of life”

As mentioned before, I got the book via Amazon without even reading the synopsis. The cover art and the title touched my heart. That is exactly where I felt waves of emotions about the book. If I put things together in a very simple way, I am so glad I read it.

The book is filled with human emotions, that you, and me all go through. The pain of loss and being lost in two worlds of the living and the dead. Ajay, a 30 ish IT officer at an IT company who looses his wife Bhavana, 2 years back. Ajay is totally depressed and no amount of medication can not put him back to his normal self. People, family, friends and colleagues pity him, which makes him more depressed. He spends a very reserved life until, one day he meets Anisha, a young and beautiful girl in her late 20’s.

I pitied Ajay as all the other characters in the story. A man loves her wife shows the heart warming nature of the character. But I must state that the ray of sunshine in the story, Anisha is my favorite character. She brings hope, light and love to Ajay’s barren and isolated life. The way she reaches and touches the deepest point of Ajay’s heart is mesmerizing. I was totally touched by the story and fell in love with almost all the characters.

Ajay K. Pandey speaks not only about the emotions of the humans, but also touches the deepest part of the hearts of the reader. Such an amazing and wonderful story.

If you have not read this book, I think you definitely should.

Bookish (And Not So Bookish) Thoughts

Welcome to my 2nd post of Bookish (and Not so Bookish) thoughts., hosted by Bookishly Boisterous. Do not forget to check out her amazing blog too.

So, this is what I have in store for you this week;

  1. I completed The Gentleman’s guide to Vise and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee, I am so glad I read  it. So proud about myself, since I did the review too.
  2. I received my copy of How To Be A Bawse by Lilly Singh. I must say that, I am truly inspired by her style.
  3. Lately I have been watching so many videos by Aileen Xu, on YouTube and now I have greatly understood the importance of Self-Love. I know it is such an amazing feeling to love your self.
  4. Currently reading 3 books, you will find out more details about them soon.
  5. I actually tried to be more organized and keep my space clean in the past few days. It is not a 100% success, but I am quite happy on what I have achieved so far.
  6. To fall in love and to be loved by, is a wonderful feeling. Grateful for that feeling too.
  7. I have started to keep a Gratitude Journal and that is something that keeps me happy everyday. To think about all the wonderful things that God has granted me, is amazing.

That is all for today folks, and I hope you enjoyed! Do not forget to share your thoughts and ideas about this post.
