Are you ready for the mini book reviews? It’s a video I do at the beginning of every month discussing books I read in the previous month. This month, I read two fantasy novels, 1 thriller, 1 romance and one poem. What? Well, keep watching the video to know more.
Hi there! I am Manpreet and I make book related videos on YouTube. And here are the five books I read last month, in September 2018.
Inkredia by Sarang Mahajan
It’s a fantasy novel by an Indian author, first in the series of four. It’s set in a fictional land where Luwan defies the lord Gruwak of Brida and ends up being chased by monsters that existed only in tales until now, according to him.
The book has adventure, travel, magic and mystery embroiled in a fast pace plot. The writing is really good and you’ll really like the story.
I didn’t particularly like the world building and couldn’t really connect with some events and introductions in the book but I really enjoyed reading it and am looking forward to read the next book for sure.
I gave it 3.8/5 stars.
2. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
If you’re going to read just one fantasy book in your life, let it be this one. (But you should also read Harry Potter and many more good fantasies).
Celaena is the world’s most dangerous assassin but on being betrayed by a dear one, she ends imprisoned.
Now, she has a chance to win back her freedom by winning the competition to become the king’s champion.
This character – Celaena Sardothien is the reason why you NEED this book. I have never seen a character so good and a book that made me feel so entertained, inspired and excited at the same time. Loved this book.
I gave it 5/5 stars
It’s the last book in the fifty shades trilogy, an erotica romance novels series much popular and criticised by people. I really liked the series, however this third book does get boring in the middle.
I am glad I continued reading it and finished the book, as my overall experience with the book is very positive.
My overall ratings for the entire series is 4/5 stars.
4. Sniper’s Eye by Mainak Dhar
It’s a thriller written by an Indian author that I enjoyed a lot. The main character of the book, while running from his past, has to relive it due to a sniper shooting a man right in front of him in a shopping mall. The plot gets more complex and twisted as you keep reading.
I loved the entire book and totally recommend it.
I gave it 4.5/5 stars.
5. Sea prayer by Khaled Hosseini
As somebody on Twitter said, it’s the example of book which the author necessarily didn’t want to write but the publisher wanted to cache in into the name of the author and make some solid money.
Why else would such a famous, talented and amazing author want his readers to buy a 400rs book that has nothing but lots of painting and a single poem in it?
I mean the poem was good but I wouldn’t recommend people to buy this book. Go to a bookstore, pick the book, read it and move on or just skip it.
I gave it 3/5 stars.
Those are five mini book reviews – 2 fantasy books, 1 thriller, 1 romance and 1 poem. What did you read last month?
