How many are the days that you spend without reading? Leaving the office drab aside, do you find some time every day to read a book? Do you read your fiction interest every day? Can you borrow some minutes from your usually busy day and sit down with your favourite author’s work to relax your mind? Well, we know that’s tough today! To make things easy, The Book Blog has made a plan. We at The Book Blog read a lot to make sure that we review almost each of the new books as well as the classics to give you ‘a bit of everything’ so that you don’t waste your time choosing the books and spend your sweet little time in reading…

We review short stories, poetry, novels, and non-fiction (which has no limits). We read so much so that we easily come up with the wide reader interest that our readers might have. The Book Blog is a platform for the books by established authors as well as promising new authors. Today, you might find a review of Chetan Bhagat’s book on TBB and tomorrow you will see something about the book by a boy from some village in UP! We leave no stone unturned in bringing the best possible read to your table which often is busy finding something ‘good’ to read in the valuable leisure.

You can enjoy the TBB blog every day; we update it with the latest reviews as we read new books. TBB operates from a spacious personal library which has more than 2,000 titles and the number is increasing daily. The authors who want us to review their books can contact us for the same. We love reading news books and always welcome writers who wish to send across their titles to our team for the review. We hope the readers will enjoy The Book Blog!

The Portable Chekhov

T

“Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.” This is exactly what Anton Pavlovich Chekhov did to his stories. He didn’t believe in shining of the moon; he, instead, tried to search its effect on his characters. I was totally unaware of this talent although I had heard of him so much. Recently I just happened to read his short story...

The Japanese Wife

T

In a world governed by social networking sites, where people visualise each other’s profiles before falling in love, The story of THE JAPANESE WIFE may sound absurd to the present generation. The story is a thunderclap to the false concept of love that has overtaken the youth of today. The physical aspect of love is totally ruled out in this story. The Japanese Wife is about Snehamoy...

The Quest of the Sparrows

T

The Quest of the Sparrows is a novel which offers many interpretations for many people. It does not limit itself to a certain and fixed interpretation and which, no doubt, is the real power and beauty of this novel. Authored by Ravi Sharma and Kartik Sharma, both IIT alumnus with IIM to their credentials, The Quest of the Sparrows also makes use of the metaphors very cleverly to narrate their...

Right Here Right Now

R

Have you ever thought of it that if we lose our memory how will we survive? We won’t get to know who was true to us and who is acting fake. Who might try to take advantage of our illness and whom we can trust? Something like this takes place in the novel of Nikita Singh – Right Here Right Now. I have gone through this novel and today, I will be sharing what I found and what I liked...

A Walk to Remember

A

Nicholas Sparks is a modern master of fateful love stories and road-not-taken fables written in uncluttered prose. A Walk to Remember is perfect autumn fiction when thoughts turn to changes and life’s journeys, both mapped and unmapped.This novel is a bit of twisted take on your average romance novel. Instead of the good girl falling for the bad boy, it’s more of the other way round...

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

H

Harry Potter and the creator of his world, J K Rowling, both have been very famous since the time the series first appeared. There are people in a large number who have been the readers of Harry Potter works and I am also one of them. There is something amazing about these books – you don’t have to find something ‘literary’ in those – buy the book – read it...

Accidentally in Love

A

Accidentally in Love by Nikita Singh is a romance based novel, mark my words! Why I said romance based is due to the fact that there is nothing in the novel apart from romance. Perfect girls falling for perfect boys and vice versa is the basic framework on which the pages of this novel are painted. There is no scope of imperfection anywhere. There only they keep complicating their love lives...

An Unsuitable Boy

A

An Unsuitable Boy…the title itself opens up the doubts and assumptions that people had about Karan Johar. And Karan openly talks about almost everything. Right from his childhood till his last movie Ae dil hai mushkil. He goes on to tell how this movie is a surreal mix of fact and fantasy. He talks about his love life and how he could not unite with the first one and how the second one is...

The Kite Runner

T

Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini If anyone has ever been able to create a mèlange of emotions like brotherhood, love, compassion and loyalty in the most heart-wrenching way, it’s the very gifted American-Afghan writer, Khaled Hosseini. Rare are the times when one can imagine a friendship tale ejecting such pathos. The Kite Runner, with its subtle poignancy, is plain stupendous. The book...

Ignited Minds

I

There are people like APJ Abdul Kalam who are truly a blessing for the nation. An out and out patriot, a scientist and our beloved former president of India, Kalam was no less an author than the bestsellers of today. His books always gained the praise and critical appreciation. Today, I will be talking about a book which ignited so many minds in the country – yes, Ignited Minds, published...
