Shrilaxmi Reads and Stuff
From the blog
My rating: 5 of 5 stars I won this book in a giveaway by the author. Lucky me, because this is quite possibly the best novella I’ll ever read. I absolutely loved it. Sure, it was creepy and disturbing at times, but I’m so glad I read it. What I enjoyed most was the writing.Continue reading “The Hanging Tree by Michael Phillip Cash”
My rating: 5 of 5 stars Rookscroft: All Feathers and Hats by Jayne SiroshtonView all my reviews
My rating: 1 of 5 stars I received a free copy of this book from the author. Update September 2020:I’m one of those people who judge books by their covers. And never have I regretted this whim of mine as much as I did with this book. The cover is all nice, cute, and wellContinue reading “Hidden Husband by Shikha Kaul”
My rating: 4 of 5 stars I received a free copy of this book from the author. Update September 2020:I still love this one. Books like this are why I enjoy chick-lit (I’m still not completely sure I can call it chick-lit though, but I digress.) It is a light read full of drama withoutContinue reading “Nights In Pink Satin by Anita Shirodkar”
My rating: 2 of 5 stars I received a free copy of this book from the author. Update 6th September 2020 (two years since the annulment of section 377! Yay!):I have very mixed feelings about this book. It covers a really intense topic but managed to be a quick, light read despite being 300 pagesContinue reading “377 by Manish Jani”
My rating: 1 of 5 stars I received a free copy of this book from the author. Update September 2020:OH GOD NO. I re-read this book over the last two days and I simply cannot understand how I liked it when I first read it. The first thing that hits as soon as I startedContinue reading “Dinner Date by Ishaan Lalit”
My rating: 3 of 5 stars I received a free copy of this book from the author. Update August 2020:I reread this after like three years and yep, it’s still good! I’d lent my copy to a friend last year and she didn’t like it so I thought maybe it was one of those booksContinue reading “North: An Adventure by Amanda Linehan”
Recipe for my favorite breakfast pancakes!
My rating: 1 of 5 stars The plot was literally the first season of ‘You’ but with a cat POV. The change in POV was cute but that’s the only thing unique about this story. It was a quick read which I was thankful for since it read like a five-year-old’s diary. Sure, the premiseContinue reading “The Neighbour’s Cat by J.S. Ellis”
I won this book in a giveaway. The last time I read this interesting little novel was five years ago. When I came across the Goodreads page and saw that I’d given it a 4-star rating (which is pretty rare for me!) I knew I had to give it a reread. And boy, am IContinue reading “Pokergeist by Micheal Phillip Cash”
I’m Shrilaxmi. I read, I write, and I talk about reading and writing.
In other news, I’m a huge nerd and when I’m not reading I spend my time playing Ultimate Frisbee, doing yoga, or folding some origami. I also drink unhealthy amounts of tea.
