  • Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson

    This is my second book by the author, and I love it. I absolutely love her writing style and the important themes she covers. The first book I read was – Let me Hear a Rhyme , which I did review on this blog already. This one though, is something

  • Persianality by Michael Benzhabe

    It’s been a while I have read a book with an unlikable protagonist. Does the protagonist have to be likable for the book to be strong and heartfelt? I did think so before but now I’m not sure! Persianality is raw, with some flawed characters but that makes them that much

  • The Never Ending Cycle of Gun Violence ft. Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds

Hello There! I Am Monica...

The human behind this blog .

I was born and brought up in India and currently live in England. I am 26 years old and earn the moolah by working full time as an Interior Designer. As much as I love designing spaces , I am also a fan of stories. When I am not working, I am absorbing stories in some form or another. The main sources being Books, Movies & TV Series.

Voice | S1 | 2017

When I first got into K dramas I had the expectation of watching something cute, romantic and vibes similar to those. Well all that is still prevalent but there is so much more. K dramas have such a wide genre and Crime/ Thrillers are by far my favorite. Here is

A Parallel World Crime Story |Train|2020

Finally broke the dry spell on Kdramas and back with another review for the latest Korean drama that has gone in my all time favorites list. Train is a sci-fi crime thriller story and those are genres I absolutely adore… SYNOPSIS A hard-hitting detective who fearlessly dives into his work,
