Product Review--> MatrikaS Paper Products

Posted by Nikita Johri at 8:42 PM

Dear Diary,

I met three new friends today and what can I say, I fell in love with them! I know when you hear about them you will also love them. They are all so beautiful!

My three new friends- Products sent for review by MatrikaS
One is an Antique Journal with a leather feel in the cover, crisp high quality pages which look golden when the journal is closed and such a classy overall feel to it. It looks just like those old leather bound classics in the library that are precious and very rarely loaned. What's more is that I was stumped by the price. It is so economically priced at just 360 Rupees. I know this will be a fitting successor to you. :)

Book Review:
The Advent Bride attracted me at first because of its cover which is so Christmasy and then because of the blurb which instantly hooked me. :)

This is the first book in the 12 brides of Christmas series. Set in a past time in Nebraska where Melanie Douglas lives and fights each day to brave the harsh cold, keep a roof over her head by never saying anything back to the obnoxious Mrs. Rathbone who only has threats and complains for her and also tackle the rowdy and wild Simon O'Keeffe who is always hell bent on mischief- Melanie has her hands full. In a society where girls marry young, she has accepted her fate and being an orphan has only her job as a teacher keeping her happy.

Book Review--> Business Doctors- Management Consulting Gone Wild by Sameer Kamat

Posted by Nikita Johri at 12:40 PM
Title and Author: Business Doctors - Management Consulting Gone Wild by Sameer Kamat
No. of Pages: 240Pages
Publication Date: April 2014
Language: English
Genre: Business, Strategy and Management, Action, Adventure, Indian writing

Book Review:
Michael Schneider is Ivy League educated management consultant but he is struggling. In comes Woody, a mafia boss who is on the verge of losing his family business. As Michael takes up the job to revive Woody's business that spans drugs, gambling and other unsavory activities, it is a challenge that will test Michael and prove to Woody if he is indeed the Business Doctor!

First of all, I loved the cover of the book and was instantly attracted towards it. Next the concept is so novel. I have never read a book on management consulting so when Sameer contacted me to review this book I was intrigued. The blurb is catchy and makes the reader want to checkout the book.

Sameer's writing style is crisp, witty and very balanced. He injects humor with ease and it was very funny to read about Michael. The book is fast paced and the twists although predictable to me still kept up my interest.

The characterization is admirably done but I would have loved to see more depth in them. Sometimes they feel only partly developed. Michael is brilliant, Woody is moody and Woody's wife, Angie is the spicy ingredient in the book. :)

Book Review---> Time of Death #1- Time of Death: Induction by Shana Festa

Posted by Nikita Johri at 6:22 PM
Title and Author: Time of Death: Induction by Shana Festa
Series: Time of Death #1
No. of Pages: 198 Pages
Publication Date: May 2014
Language: English
Genre: Post-Apocalyptic, Horror, Zombie, Science Fiction

Book Review:

Emma Rossi is a nurse in training and happily married to the love of her life. Funny, witty and strong, she braves facing cantankerous old nurses, difficult patients and many other challenges each day but no challenge is as horrifying as the outbreak of a deadly virus that suddenly leaves hungry zombies everywhere. With only a handful of survivors, Emma is faced with a challenge that will test her character and her morals as she tries to protect her family and herself from the living dead!

"When no one or nowhere is safe, where do you go to escape the monsters?" said the blurb and I was hooked. Really where will I go if something like this happened? I kept asking myself while reading this book. The cover is attractive and intrigued me. The blurb is catchy and will interest you enough to thumb through the pages.

While I am very scared of zombies and usually do not try watching movies with zombies in it but when Shana told me about her book and I read the blurb I was so intrigued as to want to challenge myself with it and thus, started my adventure with a zombie novel that became my first read in this genre. :)

Even if I started out with the book fearing my reaction to it, I was soon so engrossed in the story that I lost track of time. A very realistically brought to life story where the world is afflicted with a virus so deadly that they have no cure for it and where zombies are running wild, I was thrilled as well as chilled while reading the story.
