Hello, my fellow Spirals!
Having been an avid reader for the past few years and especially during the lockdown, I am quite excited to embark on this journey to share my reviews on the books I read, recommend some interesting books and read some of your recommendations as well.
I am Harini, an inquisitive and passionate learner. I am also currently a student in college pursuing Computer Science.
I have been obsessed with reading since I was 5 years old. But I fell out of the reading habit during my last few schooling years and initial college days. However, lockdown helped me get in touch with my reader side and since then I have been glued to books.
I have always wanted to discuss my thoughts on books and share it with others for a long time. I have dabbled with the idea of starting a blog dedicated to books for quite a few months and have finally taken the first step.
With this blog I hope to reach a lot of people and engage with the rest of the book community while learning a lot from it as well!
My Reading Taste
I am someone who reads pretty much anything and everything. Some of my most sought after genres are: science fiction, contemporary fiction, historical fiction, memoirs, science related books and thrillers. I am not so keen when it comes to fantasy or Young Adult books but I do definitely read them once in a while.
I have also been experimenting with some classics such as Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and so far I am definitely enjoying them.
Some of my most favorite books are:
- The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
- A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
- Recursion by Blake Crouch
- The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
- Big Bang by Simon Singh
Hopefully I get to add many more books to this list!
What To Expect
With the help of this blog, I want to engage with more people and share my thoughts about the books I read. I would love to encourage new readers to pick up books that are more suitable for them and which can encourage them to read more.
I also want to expand my reading tastes so I would definitely aim to pick up more obscure titles and provide you all with new books to add to your (never-ending) TBR pile.
With my reviews, I am going to be brutally honest about what I liked and disliked. But keep in mind that what I state on this blog is just my personal opinion and that shouldn’t stop you from picking it up or loving the book!
Added to this, I will also be posting some fun discussion topics surrounding books or academia.
Along with that I would absolutely love to hear your thoughts regarding any of the books mentioned and would totally appreciate any new recommendations you might have for me.

My Rating System
⭐⭐⭐⭐🌟 => Absolutely loved it!
⭐⭐⭐⭐ => Liked it a lot
⭐⭐⭐ => It was okay. Not great but not bad.
⭐⭐ => Did not like it
⭐ => Blasphemous
Also, I refrain from rating any non-fiction books. I feel it’s unfair to put a rating on the amount of knowledge you gain from reading it. However, I will DEFINITELY give a 5⭐ to any book that has become an absolute favorite of mine.
