Book on the Hook by Ayushi Sharma

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.” The creator of the Game of Thrones could not have been wrong, right? While there are so many different places to go, so many different people to meet, it’s hard to fit-in everything and everyone into your schedule, you can settle for something better- reading. And every book you read will take you to places far and wide, some beyond your imagination, and give you a VIP tour into the heads of multiple people, real and fictional.
Though we all know the benefits of reading, what’s harder is deciding which book to read. And that’s what we’re here for. In our book review section, we’ll be suggesting one book every week for you to read. From the most mainstream, to the ones you might never have heard of, we have a myriad of suggestions to keep you hooked- and we’ll keep the spoilers to the minimum, Promise! What’s more is that with each book, there’s a song recommendation, a song that encompasses the feeling of that book. So go crack a warm one (coffee) and get reading!
P.S. – Feel free to share your opinions on the book reviewed. And if there’s a specific book that you’d like for us to review, or you’d like to take us out for a milkshake and rigorous book discussion, feel free to let us know.
