34828626


Violet never wanted to move to Perfect.


Who wants to live in a town where everyone has to wear glasses to stop them going blind? And who wants to be neat and tidy and perfectly behaved all the time?

But Violet quickly discovers there's something weird going on – she keeps hearing noises in the night, her mum is acting strange and her dad has disappeared.

When she meets Boy she realizes that her dad is not the only person to have been stolen away...and that the mysterious Watchers are guarding a perfectly creepy secret!

For the lovers of Fantasy, here comes a new inventive tale of strength, courage and magic.

This was definitely a brilliant book, quite creepy but still amazing, with some incredible characters and an enticing yet unique plot.


Welcome to Perfect, a town anything but...

Violet Brown has never ever wanted be perfect and she definitely never wanted to move in a town called perfect but life does not go as we want it to.

But when her optician father has been offered an almost perfect job in this new location and despite her unwillingness, Violet must do as she is told, so she moves to Perfect.

No sooner did she set her foot in Perfect, she knows that something is not right, that this is no ordinary place. Violet hates her new home, it's too clean, there are so many rules, everyone is so friendly. All in all the town is just too perfect and she can't really fit in it.

And then strange things begin to happen. Her mom is acting a little too weird. Her dad is just disappearing on mysterious business trips. And everyone is wearing unique tinted glasses including herself. And then she is getting in trouble in school for every little thing. And apart from all this she is hearing strange noises. Nothing just makes sense.

But will they somehow find a way for making things normal again?

This is not all. There is dark magic and some creepy macabre elements. There are scary plotting villains. So all in all, this book has everything that makes a magical story and I sort of loved it. This book is perfect for Children, young adults and even adults. It's just too alluring and tempting with an enticing storyline.

I highly recommended reading this. If you want something different, pick this up. If you want something light, pick this up. If you are just bored and don't know what to do, Pick this up. If you are simply in a mood to read, Pick this up!!! It's worth reading.

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY HONOR BY CORA REILLY

Born into one of the leading Mob families in Chicago, Aria Scuderi struggles to find her own path in a world where no choices are given. Aria was only fifteen when her parents betrothed her to Luca – The Vice – Vitiello, the oldest son of the head of the New York Cosa Nostra to ensure peace between the two families. 

Now with eighteen, the day Aria has been dreading for years is looming dangerously: her wedding to Luca. 
Aria is terrified of marrying a man she hardly knows, especially someone like Luca who got his nickname ‘the Vice’ for crushing a man’s throat with his bare hands. Luca might be one of the most sought after men in New York thanks to his good looks, wealth and predator-like charisma that radiates power, but the society girls throwing themselves at him don’t know what Aria does: that the bad boy aura isn’t just a game; blood and death lurk beneath Luca’s striking gray eyes and arrogant smile.

In her world a handsome exterior often hides the monster within; a monster who ca…

Book Review: Man Of Her Match by Sakshama Puri Dhariwal

Kicked off the team for a series of misdemeanours, Indian cricket’s bad boy Vikram Walia finally has a chance at redemption. The only problem: it involves collaborating with his childhood best friend turned sworn enemy, Nidhi Marwah.

Once a tomboy, now a gorgeous, self-assured marketing professional, Nidhi must put aside her personal dislike of Vikram and leverage his unparalleled fame and poster-boy good looks for her latest campaign.

But the ensuing battle of sardonic jibes and veiled slurs only heightens their blazing chemistry. Soon memories of their past fill their present, pulling them back to that fateful day when a heartless act destroyed their friendship.

Can Vikram and Nidhi put their stormy history behind them? Will their partnership have a second innings?

Childhood love and second chances? Famous hero and a normal girl? Yep, this is my undoing. How can I not read a book with such an amazing combination of troupes?
