FREE on Amazon: Bound by Life by Arpita Pramanick

Bound by Life by Arpita Pramanick of Scribbles@Arpita is now available for FREE on Amazon!

I am lucky to have read this debut short stories collection and you dare not miss this chance of making this yours! 🙂 To show why, here’s a short excerpt from the review that I have written last February! ❤

What I Love:

If I am to sum up the ten short stories in this book, I would use the word ‘relatable’.

With the diversity of the topics Arpita has delved into, I think every reader can pick a story where he/she can relate.

On my case, the first story titled The Silent Victim appealed to me the most. Because first, I am a lady whose greatest fear is abuse. Like Deepa, I hate it when a man unknown to me gets too close to me too much but like her, I also had my share of traumatic incident once when I was in a bus.

By the way the story was told, with simple yet emotionally powerful words, Arpita was able to make me feel Deepa.

I felt the same heart-tugging effect when I read I am MalaThe story felt so true and so raw.

I love stories who stunned me, stories which I cannot predict the ending, and I am glad I experienced that with Elusive and The Girl with the White Patches

I also liked Bound by Life. It is sadly moving. While The Mother’s Plight actually reminded me of my favorite author’s, Mitch Albom’s, For One More Day.

As a mystery/crime junkie, Arpita was also able to creep me out with The Vaastu Snake.

2015 Reading Challenge Super Update Part 5 (29th to 31st)

Picture2Reading has proven to be my fortress when I’m stressed. 🙂 I am so glad to share to you another update of my 2015 Reading Challenge!

Read on!

A popular author’s first book (29th) – You by Caroline Kepnes You (You, #1) I am not quite sure if every reader will consider Caroline Kepnes a ‘popular’ author yet but I am sure that her debut novel was good. It is actually crazy good, take that literally. You is a story of love, a crazy love full of obsession and deceit. It is creepy and engrossing at the same time.

A book with magic (30th) – Never Never: Part Two (Never Never, #2) by Colleen Hoover  and Tarryn Fisher

Never Never: Part Two (Never Never, #2) “Wide-awake until over 12 midnight and then there’s no more page to read!” This is how frustrated I am because I really wanted to know what happened to Silas and Charlie! While this book’s part 1 is still better that this novel, Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher undeniably written a very interesting sequel that readers will finish  in just one seating. I just can’t wait for the third part!

A book that made you cry (31st) – The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold The Lovely Bones This book deserves a full-length review. So I will surely find time to share my thoughts about this tearjerker soon! That would be all for now! Happy reading! ~
