The White Tiger – A Review


I came across The White Tiger in my aunty house and knew I would have to read it quickly. I’m not a huge fan of borrowing books, so I would need to finish it in the course of my stay. Fortunately, it was a compelling book and so finishing it in a matter of days proved easier than I had anticipated. The title, The White Tiger, triggered my curiosity. After all, I knew it wasn’t a tale...

Forgive Me – A Review


Fuel scarcity is a very real and rather startling phenomenon here in Nigeria. Last Saturday, I decided it was time to join the queue for fuel. In preparation for what was undoubtedly going to be an hour plus wait, I bought myself snacks and three novels; one of the novels was Forgive Me by Lesley Pearse. As titles go, Forgive Me is certainly alluring. There is the promise of tragedy, of mystery...

It’s The Little Things – A Review


It’s The Little Things By Erica James I bought this book as a birthday present for my sister, because I have realised these are the sorts of stories she liked. However, as fate would have it, I ended up reading it first (No, I am not one of those people who buy things for people so that they can make use of it themselves; at least I am not usually this way), and I am now thoroughly...

Dead Simple – A Review


DEAD SIMPLE Peter James   I haven’t read a novel in weeks and I was getting desperate; so when I picked Dead Simple, all I knew was that it was crime fiction (you can rarely go wrong with crime) and the name Peter James rang a bell. Four men are dead, one is missing and the sixth is not telling. The plot was engaging enough that I read the book in two sittings. In the first sitting, I read...

The Snow Child – A Review


THE SNOW CHILD Eowyn Ivey I picked this book off the shelf because the title suggested itself, and the navy background with white shadowy images of a girl and a fox appealed to me. Every once in a while you score and I certainly reaped the benefits of my choice. The Snow Child is a tale about a childless couple who relocate to the barrenness of Alaska to begin anew. The lives of Jack and Mabel...

The Story Of Beautiful Girl – A Review


THE STORY OF BEAUTIFUL GIRL By Rachel Simon This was a book I picked in a hurry from the shelf. I believe I bought it with Snow Child (review coming soon); but it took me a while to read it because when I was almost halfway, my sister took the book and didn’t return it till she was done. Then the book was back in my hands but I had already come to the conclusion that it was a spectacular novel...
