Book Review: Let It Snow by John Green, Lauren Myracle & Maureen Johnson

EtherealJinxed | Book Review | Let It Snow by John Green, Lauren Myracle and Maureen Johnson

I had tremendously liked the book The Fault in Our Stars (check its review here) written by John Green and when my best friend suggested for me to select Let It Snow, I dilly-dallied a little but in the end, thought to give it a try. But my my, was I not disappointed! Where I was so emotionally involved in the former book, the latter just touched me superficially.

Ok, let me be straight (ya I am, just kidding) – I am not in favor of reading silly teen books, but there was a time in my life I devoured such books like crazy. So, this is a book recommended for teens “only” and those looking for light short stories. This is not a novel in the correct sense of word, but as the cover pic says “three holiday romances” around Christmas, a collection of three short love stories connected together in the last one. The last one is the worst, but let us ignore that.

Silly, stupid romances, none of them memorable is my conclusion of the book. So enough about the story-line, the way the book is written is interesting since three different popular writers have attempted to make it likable enough (my friend had loved it) and it is a good enough effort.

 

Keep watching my blog for more book reviews.

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
An ill-timed storm on Christmas Eve buries the residents of Gracetown under multiple feet of snow and causes quite a bit of chaos. One brave soul ventures out into the storm from her stranded train and sets off a chain of events that will change quite a few lives. Over the next three days one girl takes a risky shortcut with an adorable stranger, three friends set out to win a race to the Waffle House (and the hash brown spoils), and the fate of a teacup pig falls into the hands of a lovesick barista.

A trio of today’s bestselling authors – John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle- brings all the magic of the holidays to life in three hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and kisses that will steal your breath away.

About the author:

Printz Award Honor Book and a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. His next novel, Paper Towns, is a New York Times bestseller and won the Edgar Allen Poe Award for Best YA Mystery. In January 2012, The Fault in Our Stars was met with wide critical acclaim, unprecedented in Green’s career. The praise included rave reviews in Time Magazine and The New York Times, on NPR, and from award-winning author Markus Zusak. The book also topped the New York Times Children’s Paperback Bestseller list for several weeks. Green has also coauthored a book with David Levithan called Will Grayson published in 2010.

Book Review: The Crown by Kiera Cass

EtherealJinxed | Book Review | The Crown | Selection #5 by Kiera Cass

The five-book series ended and I am so sad for I have to be on the lookout of another book. Not that, it should matter much because there are so many amazing books to explore, but tell me how do you select one to suit your palette.

So here goes my musings on completing The Crown. But first my rap on the point that even if something is bad, it gets so addictive over time, that you cry yourself hoarse once it ends because you are scared for the future, for yourself, like how will you live after that one goes away. And you know what happens later – you miss out on so many amazin experiences. The Selection series started as an easy-peasy book to read, then slowly progressed to something I would not have picked up otherwise. However, I have to say that the protagonist of the last two books, Eadlyn was hundred times better than America. And that love can be found in most unlikely of places where one least expects and especially when one is not trying at all. So, in conclusion enjoy the series till it lasts and all the best for you finding your one true love!!

Keep watching my blog for reviews of more books which I pick up at random unless someone really really recommends it. Cheers!

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
When Eadlyn became the first princess of Illéa to hold her own Selection, she didn’t think she would fall in love with any of her thirty-five suitors. She spent the first few weeks of the competition counting down the days until she could send them all home. But as events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes that she might not be content remaining alone.

Eadlyn still isn’t sure she’ll find the fairytale ending her parents did twenty years ago. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and soon Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more impossible—and more important—than she ever imagined.

Book Review: The Heir by Kiera Cass

EtherealJinxed | Book Review | The Heir | Selection #4 by Kiera Cass

The first three books had pretty girls romping the palace grounds, but this one only had one such but with 35 suitors to be selected as prince/king. It is not too much to imagine, if you know the concept of swayamvar, the practice of choosing a husband, from among a list of suitors, by a girl of marriageable age, practiced in India in ancient times. Want more examples from Indian epics – Rama-Sita, Arjun-Draupadi etc. But here in this book, it was like the suitors were parading like fools.

If you had thought Ms.America was a bitch, be welcome to meet her daughter, who is even more haughty having grown up as a princess, or as it would seem to the outside world. There is nothing wrong in not wanting to marry since one has not yet found her prince charming, or think that none such exist, but extending it to one complete book was too much for me. However, the character sketch of different suitors was pretty good and if the book had a little more substance, I would have rated it higher than the first one of this series – The Selection.

Keep watching my blog for reviews of more books which I pick up at random unless someone really really recommends it. Cheers!

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she’d put off marriage for as long as possible.

But a princess’s life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can’t escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.

Eadlyn doesn’t expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn’s heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn’t as impossible as she’s always thought.

Book Review: The One by Kiera Cass

EtherealJinxed | Book Review | The One | Selection #2 by Kiera Cass

If you want to know my preference of the 3 books part of The Selection series, I will rate the first one the best followed by third one (this book The One) and then at the very bottom is the second book (The Elite).

So finally in this book, Ms. America overcomes her indecisiveness over her love interests, but she still does not let go of both options till the very end. I mean why. How much more bitchy you can be. I really hate such girls. But had I been one such once? Shhh…

But I will tell you what – I will recommend this series for the truly young adults – which means below 20 years of age or if you still live in a bubble wrap world where it is okay to play with someone else’s feelings with no entanglements. And if you think you are grown up, then pick it at your own peril. I for one, have grown up from such stories, for example 2 States, a Bollywood masala movie based on Chetan Bhagat’s book which was too much for me to digest four years back and has crossed all limits now.

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
The time has come for one winner to be crowned.

When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon’s heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she’ll have to fight for the future she wants.

Book Review: The Elite by Kiera Cass

EtherealJinxed | Book Review | The Elite | Selection #2 by Kiera Cass

If you are following my blog, you already know what I think about the first one in the series The Selection and it is not bad. If not, just skip to the previous book review and you will come to know 😉

Let what the circumstances be when I picked the first one in this series, reading this book was purely intentional for I really wanted some cheesy stuff and to feel young once again. Haha. Just kidding, I have crossed 30 but not that old either. This book focuses only on love triangle and nothing else – traces of the competition which was so much talked about in the last book has simply gone away and we are left with the dilemma of who Ms. America loves! Are teenagers confused about the ultimate love of your life? Yes, I mean even the older ones are too. However, in a book, I do not want only this. At one point in my life (5-15 years back), I had loved Twilight and Vampire Diaries where yes, love triangle was there, but there was much more. However, this book simply turned out to be a dampener.

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
The Selection began with thirty-five girls.

Now with the group narrowed down to the six Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon’s heart is fiercer than ever—and America is still struggling to decide where her heart truly lies. Is it with Maxon, who could make her life a fairy tale? Or with her first love, Aspen?

America is desperate for more time. But the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want—and America’s chance to choose is about to slip away.

Book Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass

EtherealJinxed | Book Review | The Selection by Kiera Cass

So what do you do when you cannot sleep one night because of anxiety? Me? I select a light book to read where I do not have to harp on nuances. The day I selected this book was 18th Feb at 2 am, yes, at an ungodly hour. And regarding why only this book is because I had liked the cheesy cover being shown repeatedly in the one of the book photography groups I follow on Instagram.

I know any of you as my regular followers may be wondering how I am going to rate this book since this is the sort of book I have not read in ages. However, it was ok-ish for a change and it helped me cruise through that anxious night. The Selection is a typical chick-flick book, one which soon may be translated into a TV series, if not yet picked up already to cater to teens. Yes, this is a book to appeal to teenage girls, what with love fights and cutey dialogues and knowing myself, I would have liked it much much better once!

Keep watching my blog for reviews of more books which I pick up at random unless someone really really recommends it. Cheers!

 

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself—and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

Book Review: The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan

EtherealJinxed | Book Review | The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan

Once in a while you want to read a light happy-go-lucky book just to counter the effect of earlier books you had read. And I found my happily ever after in the book The Bookshop on the Corner, also known as Little Shop of Happily Ever After.

It is a story of how when life puts you down, in a way, it is giving opportunity to change the track of your life and that too for good. But let us not talk about the story-line more and give it all away other than that for book lovers, it is a must read. The moment I opened this book, the introduction by the author brought a biiiiiig smile on my face (like I do when I remember Jalebi advertisement – Main ghar chhod k jaa raha hun, koi mujhe pyar nahi karta…par mummi ne toh garma garam jalebiyaan banayi hain… Jalebi… Dhara Dhara suddh Dhara, and jaana toh hai magar bees pachees saal baad translated in English to a cute kid leaving home who gets attracted to come back for he gets to know from his uncle that his mom is making a very tasty sweet dish) since it talked about the ways the author steals moments to do, wooaahh, none other than reading a book. Oh, I could correlate to so many!

In fact, to be truthful, I liked everything about the book since even the cheesiness was in small doses and exactly to the right amount of my liking. In short, do read this book to follow the passion of your life, which may be a love interest, a hobby or your job. I can assure you won’t be disappointed. Cheers!


And while we are on the subject of passion, let me tell you about a startup Indiavaale, a social e-commerce startup that creates home and lifestyle products by innovating Indian crafts, the brain child of Mrs. Anuradha Sangal and Mrs.Tanvi Sangal from Dehradun who were passionate about supporting craftsmen. And for this, the co-founders have traveled from Khurja in UP to Raghurajpur in Odisha in pursuit of artisans whose cause Indiavaale could support. Check out indiavaale.com to know more!

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
Nina Redmond is a literary matchmaker. Pairing a reader with that perfect book is her passion… and also her job. Or at least it was. Until yesterday, she was a librarian in the hectic city. But now the job she loved is no more.

Determined to make a new life for herself, Nina moves to a sleepy village many miles away. There she buys a van and transforms it into a bookmobile—a mobile bookshop that she drives from neighborhood to neighborhood, changing one life after another with the power of storytelling.

From helping her grumpy landlord deliver a lamb, to sharing picnics with a charming train conductor who serenades her with poetry, Nina discovers there’s plenty of adventure, magic, and soul in a place that’s beginning to feel like home… a place where she just might be able to write her own happy ending.

Book Review: 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher

EtherealJinxed | Book Review | 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher

I have been told not to read any negative books any more! But here, I picked up 13 Reasons Why,  and why? Because the Netflix trailer looked enticing and for me, reading is always preferable to watching a TV series/ movie. In fact, I myself don’t like pessimistic books or series or movies, I mean why do you have to clutter your entertainment life with this when real life is a bitch most times! Well now-a-days it is usual/general norm to base a movie/series on books what with so much online content flooding the market.

So back to the book, the flow and narration of this book seems original. The start dialogue “And if you‘re listening to these tapesyou’re one of the reasons why” is marvelous. It sets exactly the right tempo of what is to come. But gosh, the character sketch of Hannah, it was pathetic, if not downright hilarious. I am not demeaning the propensity of a person to commit suicide but but but if you will find silly reasons to make up for the big day, really you are too immature to live! And that girl mentions one of the thirteen reasons as the guy who liked her a lot and never did anything to hurt her, but only because she wanted him to give full focus to her. What absolute rubbish!

I have found kids wanting to watch this series, peer pressure/ power you may say, but I would not recommend the book to simply anyone.

Keep watching my blog for more book reviews.

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
You can’t stop the future.
You can’t rewind the past.
The only way to learn the secret . . . is to press play.

Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker–his classmate and crush–who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah’s voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out why.

Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah’s pain, and as he follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his town, what he discovers changes his life forever.

Book Review: C is for Corpse by Sue Grafton

EtherealJinxed | Book Review | C is for Corpse by Sue Grafton | Kinsey Millhone series

So tell me, as another book reviewer, how do you keep the interest going for reviews of similar books. Which by the way, brings me to a bigger question – how do authors keep the next ones in a series intriguing. And I am not giving credit to shitty Bollywood (a few Hollywood too) movies whose directors/ producers just for the sake of milking the success of first movie keeps on releasing next one in a series.

C is for Corpse is yet another rock-n-roll series where at the very start you know who is the victim/ client (both being the same in this case) and then along with Kinsey, you as a reader, have to explore and find out the correct sequence and motive. But you know all you hear is not true since people morph the telling suit their own personal needs. For example, a character was not so forthcoming to say he/she (hey, I am not giving any spoilers away and hence the neutral tense) was married once. But I tell you, this one is the best so far among A, B and C. So, keep your fingers crossed while reading the book so that there are no more murders in this one.

Next one on the line is, yes, you guessed it right, D is for Deadbeat. Keep watching my blog for more book reviews.

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
C IS FOR CALCULATED
How do you go about solving an attempted murder when the victim has lost a good part of his memory? It’s one of Kinsey’s toughest cases yet, but she never backs down from a challenge. Twenty-three-year-old Bobby Callahan is lucky to be alive after a car forced his Porsche over a bridge and into a canyon. The crash left Bobby with a clouded memory. But he can’t shake the feeling it was no random accident and that he’s still in danger.

C IS FOR CRIME
The only clues Kinsey has to go on are a little red address book and the name “Blackman.” Bobby can’t remember who he gave the address book to for safekeeping. And any chances of Bobby regaining his memory are dashed when he’s killed in another automobile accident just three days after he hires Kinsey.

C IS FOR CORPSE
As Kinsey digs deeper into her investigation, she discovers Bobby had a secret worth killing for―and unearthing that secret could send Kinsey to her own early death.

About the author:
Sue Grafton was a #1 New York Times bestselling author. She is best known for her “alphabet series” featuring private investigator Kinsey Millhone in the fictional city of Santa Teresa, California. Prior to success with this series, she wrote screenplays for television movies. Her earlier novels include Keziah Dane (1967) and The Lolly-Madonna War (1969), both out of print. In the book Kinsey and Me she gave us stories that revealed Kinsey’s origins and Sue’s past.

Grafton never wanted her novels to be turned into movies or TV shows. According to her family she would never allow a ghost writer to write in her name. Because of these things, and out of respect for Sue’s wishes, the family announced the alphabet now ends at “Y.”

Grafton was named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Private Eye Writers of America, the Ross Macdonald Literary Award, three Shamus Awards, and many other honors and awards.

Book Review: B is for Burglar by Sue Grafton

EtherealJinxed | Book Review | B is for Burglar by Sue Grafton | Kinsey Millhone series

When we have introduced our kids to A for Apple, B for Ball, C for Cat in Kindergarten, why should not we adults also have our own such naming games, right? And it seems that Sue Grafton answered many of our requests, what with her Alphabet series on murder mysteries/ thrillers!

So this is a book where I sort of expected what would happen. What with reading thrillers and murder mysteries back to back since past 6 months, and while having already read the first book in this series written by Sue Grafton. But this book B is for Burglar is the one where I finally started liking the protagonist or the female detective – Kinsey Millhone. In fact, there will be lot many people who would love her character – giving 100 percent of life to one’s job with no holds barred because of personal inclinations. Just kidding! I like Kinsey too. The mystery, of course, is not revealed till almost the end of the book. However, as a reader if you would have paid enough attention, you may have guessed a little this time. I, for one, sucked in this, for I was too much involved in becoming attuned to the regular characters of this series for the next ones to pick up.

Next one on the line is, yes, you guessed it right, C is for Corpse. Keep watching my blog for more book reviews.

Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
Although business has been slow lately for P.I. Kinsey Millhone, she’s reluctant to take on the case of locating Beverly Danziger’s sister Elaine Boldt. It’s a small matter that Beverly should be able to handle herself. So why is she enlisting Kinsey’s services? Beverly claims she needs Elaine’s signature on some documents so that she can collect a small inheritance. But the whole affair doesn’t sit well with Kinsey. And if there’s something she’s learned in her line of work, it’s to always follow your instincts.

Kinsey’s hunch proves true when she begins her inquiries into Elaine’s whereabouts and discovers that the attractive widow was last seen in a flashy lynx coat boarding a plane for Boca Raton. But the more Kinsey searches for Elaine the more questions she encounters. Is Elaine’s disappearance tied in to the brutal murder several months ago of one of her bridge partners? And what happened to Elaine’s Persian cat who seems to have also vanished?

Things take a turn for the worse when a stranger vandalizes the home of one of Elaine’s neighbors and another neighbor turns up murdered. With her reputation and career on the line, Kinsey risks all to find a missing woman and a killer who’s waiting in the shadows to strike again.
