Unboxing: January “Multi – Fandom” IAAK Box

This box came simultaneously with my December IAAK Box (Read My Unboxing!) and this was quite a special one as well. I have still not been able to attend the Delhi Comi-Con and it kills me everytime I haven’t been able to attend. So, when I found out the lovely IAAK team was doing a limited edition box, I knew I had to get my hands on it!   Continue reading Unboxing: January “Multi – Fandom” IAAK Box

Unboxing: December “Harry Potter” IAAK Box

I have been an ardent fan of IAAK Box ever since they launched in the mid of 2017; they are not book based, but merchandise based and that’s what makes them so different from other box subscriptions available, for they cater to a crowd who love collecting merchandise related to their favorite fandoms and they curated boxes with special care for limited edition merchandise that usually isn’t found in India!

ARC Review: That Thing We Call a Heart by Sheba Karim

Shabnam Qureshi is a funny, imaginative Pakistani-American teen attending a tony private school in suburban New Jersey. When her feisty best friend, Farah, starts wearing the headscarf without even consulting her, it begins to unravel their friendship. After telling a huge lie about a tragedy that happened to her family during the Partition of India in 1947, Shabnam is ready for high school to end. She faces a summer of boredom and regret, but she has a plan: Get through the summer. Get to college. Don’t look back. Begin anew.

Everything changes when she meets Jamie, who scores her a job at his aunt’s pie shack, and meets her there every afternoon. Shabnam begins to see Jamie and herself like the rose and the nightingale of classic Urdu poetry, which, according to her father, is the ultimate language of desire. Jamie finds Shabnam fascinating—her curls, her culture, her awkwardness. Shabnam finds herself falling in love, but Farah finds Jamie worrying.

With Farah’s help, Shabnam uncovers the truth about Jamie, about herself, and what really happened during Partition. As she rebuilds her friendship with Farah and grows closer to her parents, Shabnam learns powerful lessons about the importance of love, in all of its forms.

Featuring complex, Muslim-American characters who defy conventional stereotypes and set against a backdrop of Radiohead’s music and the evocative metaphors of Urdu poetry, THAT THING WE CALL A HEART is a honest, moving story of a young woman’s explorations of first love, sexuality, desire, self-worth, her relationship with her parents, the value of friendship, and what it means to be true.

ARC Review: Pretty Vile Girl by Rickie Khosla

Everything she touched turned to gold, everything she said turned to scandal, everyone she wanted out of the way…died.

Beautiful, talented and wildly sexy, Jazmeen is Bollywood’s most in-demand starlet, and in a relationship with to one of the country’s most powerful politicians. Even though she’s known for her outrageous candour in interviews, no one could guess at the dark secret she’s carried for years. And no one will escape her vengeance, not even the prime minster.

About MIDNIGHT VALENTINE

True love never dies.

Megan and Cassidy were childhood sweethearts who thought they would be together forever. Fate had other plans. Soon after they were married, Cass’s life was tragically cut short. Still grieving her soul mate five years later, Megan moves to the small town of Seaside, Oregon, hoping to rebuild her life.

Her first night there, she meets the town recluse, Theo. Withdrawn, guarded, and mysteriously silent since a terrible accident left him scarred, Theo takes an instant and inexplicable dislike to Megan. But as their paths cross again and again, Megan becomes convinced there’s more to Theo than meets the eye.

When she discovers the reason for his silence, his nightmares, and especially his pointed dislike, Megan becomes convinced of something far more astonishing.
