Girl, Goddess and Audrey

1. The girl on the train -This book has a very gripping and fast paced story. I finished it in two days, I just couldn't wait to find out who the killer was. Would I recommend this book? only if you like mindless murder mysteries, 3/5.

2. Undomestic Goddess - I didn't enjoy Undomestic Goddess, found it way too dragged and illogical (even for Sophie's standards). I give it 2/5.

3. Finding Audrey - This is the best book written by Sophie Kinsella so far (I have read all her books), it also happens to be the best book I read this year so far. I give it 5/5. Another good book by Kinsella is 'Confessions of a Shopaholic'.

April 2016: Book Reviews

1. Future of the mind -- Michio Kaku

'Physics of the impossible' is a very good book by Kaku, if you have read it then 'Future of the mind' is kind of repetitive information. I didn't enjoy it much. 2/5.

2. Is everyone hanging out without me -- Mindy Kaling

I have read biographies by Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and this time Mindy Kaling, all I can say is next time I will make sure I read biographies of people that I know about (reason being my ignorance) or have a liking towards ;-)

I am sure it is hard for anyone of Mindy's size and looks getting into Hollywood and making it big. This book is about her struggle and entry in showbiz. I thought it was alright, would give it 3/5.

3. Fifty shades of Grey -- E L James

I read this book because everyone around me seemed to have read it. This was the first time I read a book in the genre erotica. I am pretty sure there are better books written in this category. If you omit the sex scenes in this book there is no story left and the writing is very poor. I give it 1/5.
