My life with a Soul is a new concept by the author and quite a good one. The story revolves around Sam, the protagonist and Selda, his Love. Suraj, being a Editor himself has really used his knowledge, skills and imagination power to the extent. The way he portrayed Sam's character, talking to himself and expressing his thoughts in words and that too on a consistence basis is one of the best part of the story. The unconditional love between Sam & Selda is also something worth reading. Despite the differences they had, still they loved each other genuinely. The end of the book is quite painful when Selda leaves him and dies. The quotes he used at the beginning of each chapter acts as magnet attracting reader to Read On. 

VERDICT:
A well written story with a unique concept way better than chick-lit stories. Will recommend this book to the readers. Grab a copy if not read yet. Will give ☆☆☆ 1/2 stars :) All the very best Suraj for your future.

Flirting with Fate is the first crime thriller novel by an Indian author I read. Finally a book that ended my streak of searching for an well written book by a female writer. Preeti Mam had very beautifully described Anand's character. The way he does everything to gain victory through destructive methods and yet finding out something good in it to fool his conscious. His search or his ultimate quest to be a Big Man, having everything under his belt, a Beautiful wife, A big house to live and A Car has been defined perfectly by the author. The tagline of the book "Karma Returns" goes well deep with the content of the story. Whatever good or bad deeds we do in our life we have to repay as it is in this birth only. The character of Fluffy, the dog is quite interesting and creative. The part that he too speaks (though no one understand what he wants to say) has been used quite effectively in penning down humor. I wish i had such a dog :P. 

The ending part of the book is quite emotional and tragic when Anand starts losing everything he owned or he dreamt to own One by One. The way story ends with twists and turns which i didn't thought of. After completing the book i had a smile on my face and a thought in my mind which was there after a long time. "Will read it again someday."

VERDICT:
Wonderfully written story with an extra-ordinary story line. Will highly recommend this book to the readers. Grab a copy if not read yet.
Will give ☆☆☆☆ 1/2 stars :)

Most unlike her worthy author friends, Preeti Singh is a bindaaas born free woman who just scribbles anything that comes to her mind whether it makes sense or not!!!! Simply because she writes from her heart.without using an ounce of her rarely awake brain!!

Snuggled happily in the lap of the Beautiful City Chandigarh, Preeti Singh has been a freelance writer since the last 15 years till she decided to write a book, before her call comes towards her final journey.

'Flirting With Fate' is her debut crime novel. Why crime?? Well, mysteries and crimes have always lit the fire within her to discover the truth. And with her strong belief in Karma returning, she is simply flowing with words in this novel.

When she's not day dreaming and writingPreeti Singh loves enjoying music, watching movies, nagging her teenage daughter, not entering the kitchen but playing with her dog, Amber Singh, who is an inquisitive and humorous character in this book.

Cover page is attractive and was shocked when i came to know that Neha herself has designed it. The concept of the book is really good and a quite different. The language used is really strong and the character of KILITIKA is well defined. Book is divided into 3 parts, describing three phases of Kili's life. I personally really liked 1st and 3rd part whereas the middle part just didn't go as per my expectations. Poems are used in a perfect way to convey the emotions and feeling at places, loved them alot. The end is quite tragic with couple of surprises. Censored words are used at many places but fits well as the situation and characters demanded those. 

VERDICT:
A different story and would recommend it to the readers. Will give 3.5/5 stars. :)

I am very much impressed by Umakant's writing style. He had written this book in simple yet powerful language and the characters are very well defined. The way he has described and outlined the female lead, The Angel, is the best i have read so far. Story is a different from all those chick lits we see these days... On asking Umakant i came to know that this is his own story and completely true. Story gets real emotional and catchy in the other half when everything starts going the wrong way in Tushar's life. Flow of emotions is maintained throughout and reader wont get bored by reading continously. Couple of printing errors  for which nor the publisher or the author can be blamed. 

VERDICT:
Overall a very well written book as for a Debutant and would recommend it to the readers...Will give it a 4/5 stars...
