QUICK REVIEW- The Nine Chambered Heart by Janice Pariat

'You, though, are as beautiful as light splitting through glass.' Nine characters recall their relationship with a young woman - the same woman - whom they have loved, or who has loved them. We piece her together, much as we do with others in our lives, in incomplete but illuminating slivers. Set in familiar and nameless cities, moving between east and west, The Nine-Chambered Heart is a compendium of shifting perspectives that follows one woman's life, making her dazzlingly real in one moment, and obscuring her in the very next. Janice Pariat's exquisitely written new novel is about the fragile, fragmented nature of identity - how others see us only in bits and pieces, and how sometimes we tend to become what others perceive us to be.

It's all about the 'CITY OF GOLD'...

Book Review-- When Love Happens by Manish Kumar

True love never dies. It is redefined every time you feel it.
When Nish falls in love, little does he know the impact it is going to
have on his life. Hailing from conservative backgrounds, love is
nothing less than war with the world for the lover and his beloved.
Albeit limited communication, they still dare to dream of a life together. But with the pressure of attaining stability in life, he finds it impossible to chase his dreams endlessly. An unassuming man from a modest background, he fights helplessness and challenges thrown at him by life, only to learn precious life lessons. His faith in God gives him the strength to move on and find his calling in writing and poetry. When Love Happens is a tale of shattered dreams and redemption, of fear and fortitude, and above all, of the indomitable human will.

QUICK REVIEW! The Grumpy Fairy by Elizabeth Dunlap

Drusinella is a fairy with attitude. Banished from Fairy Land, because she has the nasty habit of turning princes into frogs with no way to change them back, she now has to live without wings as a punishment. 
When she receives a surprise invitation to a fairy party Drusinella is overjoyed, but, despite her excitement at being allowed to return home, she soon finds that the Fairy Queen has no intention of giving her wings back. 
Miserable and wandering alone, Drusinella is captured by fairy hunters who intend to force her to help them take back their hometown from evil wizards. 
A stupid princess, Camria, saves Drusinella from them, which by fairy law means she must grant her deepest wish. It is, of course, the one thing Drusinella hates more than princes: true love. 
Now the two go on an adventure to find the prince of Camria’s dreams (who, in all likelihood, has been turned into a frog by Drusinella). But will the sarcastic fairy be able to put aside her dislike of princes for long enou…
