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!

Maya, the blindfolded: her mistake? She trusted him by Prasad Bag – Book Review

M

Maya – the name signifies so much for so many people in India. However, here, we are discussing Prasad Bag’s debut novel Maya, the blindfolded… her mistake? She trusted him. The novel has a very unique title and it signifies very much the essence of the novel. It unfolds the mystery that awaits the readers… but not all of it.

The Mystery Mountains by Aurijit Ganguli – Book Review

T

The Mystery Mountains by Aurijit Ganguli is a mysterious book, different from the common murder mystery novels. It is not a murder mystery, first of all. And secondly, it is a book that is fiction from its face, but its core contains the elements of a non-fiction book. Why did I say so? To present a detailed and authentic version, authors of non-fiction books go over the selected subjects with a...

Writing answers in examinations is an important aspect of anyone’s career. One has to impress the examiner in such a way that maximum marks are awarded for the answers attempted by the examinee.

Seema Seth offers her thoughts on love – Some Love Only Once: The drone story for young audience

S

Some Love Only Once is a distinct book from all the other books of contemporary literature. I haven’t read this kind of book before. Trust me, reading this book was a sheer pleasure. This is unique. There are no chapters. There are no parts. There are no sections. There is no antagonist, so no planning and plotting. And as such there are no heroes and heroines. The book just flows...

Before you criticise Chetan Bhagat (again) for his writing style or lack of literary qualities, think – the thought

B

Slandering Chetan Bhagat is one thing everyone loves to do. This act does not come out of merit. Criticising someone on facts is an ideal thing to do. Many do it. However, slandering someone without knowing the work is a job that tells how frustrated some people are! I am not defending Chetan Bhagat. I am not defending his poor writings. I am not telling people should read him. This article...

Dewdrop and Banyan Tree by Ramachandran Rajasekharan – Book review

D

Poetry is the sweetness that can turn your summers into pleasant memories. It can also render the pleasant heatwave that may surround your winter bed with a lovely atmosphere. In short, what I mean by these enthusiastic analogies is that poetry is charming. Poetry has the power to make you feel happy and jolly, doesn’t matter what mood you have been in before. Poetry is powerful. I enjoy...

Many authors are often confused about many things at the beginning of their writing career. It is like a journey that sadly begins with a note of confusion. Am I going the right way? This is the question that keeps ringing in the ears of anyone who begins the writing journey with self-publishing as the stepping stone. It is natural.

Help Baby Walrus by Ilia Tversky – Review

H

Though I have all the years on my back and the long list of books I have finished reading in those years always lingering to remind the hell of a reader I have been, my fascination with poetry is known to all! This passion for poetry has taken me to different lanes of literature, across the languages and across the lands of the world. I have admired Indian poetry written in various languages and...

Vanisha Uppal: an author on the way to her life goals – opinion

V

An author becomes successful in terms of popularity or critical appreciation. Both these things go on to build the reputation of the author in the future and in the present as well. New authors have to struggle these days because fame does not come to them very easily. Nevertheless, if they are into serious writing and they mean business, the literary business, critics and serious readers do...

The best thing about this novel is that it has been written by an author who is very young, talented and who does have a vision for the ideal children’s literature. Once you start reading The Moon Wolf, Sanjana Kanamarlapudi’s latest fictional book, you will understand the statement in the very first line conveniently. The novel has all the essential elements that fuse together to...
