A Gripping Journey of Suspense and Romance: "No Turning Back" by Tiffany Snow | A thrilling October read awaits!

It's almost the end of October and I thought of writing about my favourite book series. I read this series a while ago and I am wondering why this is not viral. This series is amazing. So let's start with the first book. "No Turning Back" is written by Tiffany Snow.  This book was published in 2011 and I found it by pure accident in 2013 or 2014. When I started reading this book I could not stop. It was a wormhole and I fell into it. I did not know that romantic suspense is like a genre and it would be so addicting because I was just started out reading books and trying various genres to see which one I would enjoy. I searched some books and started reading some but this one I got stuck. According to Goodreads, it is in the category of Romantic Suspense, Fiction, Mystery, and Thriller. I decided recently if I am starting my blog why not write a detailed review on my most favourite reads. The story is about a young 24-year-old girl named Kathleen Turner who is named a

Navigating the Absurdity | 'The Never King' by Nikki St. Crowe

"The Never King" by  Nikki St. Crowe   is an incredibly absurd book. I mean, while reading it, I found myself perplexed, cringing, and wondering what on earth I was actually reading. These rollercoaster emotions I experienced throughout the book. The story revolves around Peter Pan and the Lost Boys, with Winnie, a member of the Darling family line, whose mother is clearly mentally unstable. Her mother's bizarre and neglectful behavior towards her is maddening. When Winnie turns 18, her mother's insanity escalates as she believes Peter Pan is coming to kidnap Winnie, and indeed, he does just that. He takes her to Neverland, where he inexplicably chains her to a bed and watches over her while she's unconscious. The frequent mention of Winnie being different from other Darlings without a clear explanation becomes rather tiresome. Meanwhile, Peter's shadow is lost, causing Neverland to wither slowly. So his main goal is to find his shadow and secure his power o

From Booktok to Bookshelf: 'Divine Rivals' Review and Revelation

"A girl who writes letters to her missing brother and the boy who reads them", this was the line that generated this whole book as the acknowledgment chapter of this book says. Also, The author  Rebecca Ross  says something else in that chapter: "The right books find you at just the right moments as a reader as an author". As a reader, I believe it to be true. I started reading this book when I stumbled upon a TikTok video featuring one of my fellow BookTok enthusiasts shedding tears while reading it. Curiosity piqued, and I wondered what could evoke such powerful emotions. I'm not usually one to cry while reading books; only 'Hunting Adeline managed to stir such emotions in me. However, something else caught my eye – the book's cover, which I found utterly divine! Book Description by Goodreads So, I reached out to my friend for a recommendation, and she urged me to delve into it. I promptly ordered it online and, unable to wait for the physical copy to

Forced Bonds (The Bonds that Tie 4) | A glimpse into the pages of this fourth book in the series

I've completed reading "Forced Bonds," which is the fourth book of the "Bonds That Tie" series. The story keeps improving with each book, and the plot is becoming increasingly engaging . In the previous book, a significant plot twist occurred when Sage, Olli's best friend, appeared to betray Olli and their group by killing their protector, leading to an attack on the Sanctuary by the Resistance.  In this latest installment, everyone is on a quest to uncover Sage's true intentions. Is she aligned with the Resistance, or is she under some form of mind control? To find the answers, they go to a vacation town (where mostly resistance sympathizers reside) to rescue Sage's abused bonds, particularly Riley, who was portrayed as an antagonist in the first two books but is now revealed to be manipulated by Giovanna's mind control. This prompts Oli, Nox, and Gryphon to come to Riley's aid, resulting in some surprising revelations. Gryphon, in particula
