(click on the cover to check out book on Goodreads and Titles will take you to my reviews)

Paranormal Romance:

Rain (A Stranger in the Woods #1) by India R. Adams

Stars: 5/5

This was 5th India’s book I read. (Yes, I love India’s writing and I’m going to read all of her books.) /  Elves, demons, Romance ruled this book / Emotional roller coaster.

Paranormal / Fantasy:


Diary of Anna the Girl Witch 3: Fighting Witch by Vic Connor

Stars: 5/5

Sarcastic young witch Anna and her magic was heart of the book / Adventurous / Refreshing / Feel-good book. And with this book I have completed ‘Diary of Anna the Girl Witch’ series.

Thriller / Mystery:

other girl

The Other Girl by Erica Spindler

Stars: 4.5/5

A lead female sleuth / gruesome chilling opening / Not much guesswork / Predictable but enjoyable / Dysfunctional family drama / Thrilling.

Hanover House

Hanover House (The Evelyn Talbot Chronicles 0.5) by Brenda Novak

Star: 3.5/5

Not for faint-hearted / That’s the house of world’s worst serial killer and psychopaths / Categorized under thriller romance but trust me it’s not focused totally on romance / 2-3 points made me cut the stars but definitely thrilling.

Goan chase F

Goan Chase: Take Three Mysteries by Richa Sambhy Mediratta

Stars: 4.5/5

Take three mysteries- Three incidents or a hint to solve, Three mystery solver / Beach mystery / Set in India / Gripping, fast paced / Short and less suspects.

Science Fiction:

Stars: 5/5

Book is  Broken in 3 parts, this one was first. Futuristic / Dystopian / Wonderful world-building / New concept.


Avians F

Avians by Timothy Gwyn

Star: 4/5

Characters were female gliders pilots. Go girls! / Other planet setting / Dramatic and interesting / Great world-building but few points felt missing. 

YA/ Contemporary:

speed of life

Speed of Life by Carol Weston

Star: 5/5

Funny / Speedy / Cute high-school romance / Entertaining / Meaningful / Coming-of-age book.

Erotica / Romance:


Self’s Blossom by David Russell

Stars: 3/5

Sexy descriptive literature/ Focused on character’s unruly thoughts, not story


On the other hand

On the Other Hand: The Little Anthology of Big Questions by Renée Paule

Stars: 5/5

I never thought I will enjoy Non-fiction book and that is also first non-fic book for me. / More philosophical than self-help / Book need open, clear and adapting mind to understand very plain unveiled truth.

piglette f

Piglettes by Clémentine Beauvais

Stars: 4/5

This ARC I read earlier but posted review this month.

Funny / Witty / cycletrip / Great moral behind story / Entertaining.
