Review: Immortal Creators

Immortal Creators by Jill Bowers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Blurb From Goodreads: 

Sixteen-year-old author Scott Beck never wanted to be an Immortal Writer—not after his father was killed on a mission attempting to dispatch his own villain. Scott blames Shakespeare and the Writers for his father's untimely demise, but no amount of hatred will prevent the oncoming alien attack, which has come over to reality straight from Scott's book.

Scott is forced to collect his characters—an Air Force colonel, two of the best pilots on Earth, and an alien enthusiast from the year 2134—and defeat the alien king before Earth is obliterated by his ships. But an odd sickness Scott calls his Writing Fever might just kill him before the aliens have the chance.

Will Scott be able to defeat the monsters he created, or will the world end in flames?


This book is second in the Immortal Writer series. I have read the previous one and hence was very excited for the second instalment in the world of Immortal writers. It was really awesome to see the characters from previous book working with the new ones. It felt like a strong world buildup in its own.

But if I forget that it was a second in series book, there weren't any exciting plot developments here. Somehow I felt the character development was a bit weak and they weren't put into light properly. The story felt rushed because it there was the preparation phase and then directly action phase. I was about to give it a 3 star while I was in the midst of the book where the plot started to get my interest.

I'd give mixed opinions on the climax as it was good but not that good as compared to previous one. Maybe the first book has increased my expectations much. Though as I was finishing the book and was on the last few chapters, it took me by the surprise. There was a plot twist, no I am not going to give out spoilers. You have to read the book and find out what exactly I am talking about.

I really liked the way book ended in last few chapters. I feel they're the best in book. The epilogue hinted towards the next book in the series where something more interesting and fun is about to happen. If I compare it with the first book then there was certainly more scope to put in the story here, characters could've have been much better and I felt this one was a bit rushed in terms of story. I just wished there could've been much more to read in here.

Overall it was a nice good read which I totally enjoyed over weekend. Do subscribe to blog for more fun updates by clicking here and do share your thoughts on this via comments.

Review: AWAKENING: The story of a trapped soul

AWAKENING: The story of a trapped soul by Nivedita Vedurla
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Blurb from Goodreads: Social responsibilities and aging thoughts sometimes chain our being. Their existence doesn’t scare us, unless they start corroding our soul, our self-esteem.
Nina is a simple homemaker, who is caught between family and sudden realization that she is no more than a machine.
Will she break free from this invisible shackle witnessed and experienced by women since ages or be another victim? How will she unchain herself?
Read the book to find out more about Nina’s quest and destiny.
This book is for readers who think a change in outlook is must for the next generation.
I have quite mixed opinions for this book. The title says collection of short stories but if you combine and try to relate each scene with another it makes it one whole storyline. The plot is cliched where it shows everyday story of a woman. The story of her life from her childhood till the end. This book gives more of negative vibes out than it should, I don't know if that's just me who felt that.

While reading this, It felt like I was going through a plotline of 90's bollywood movie where there's one female character whose atrocities are ignored by most. It mostly shows struggles of being a female and how she sacrifices on different situations across the life. The writing it'd say is sub-par here where I feel it coud've been better. Scenes are dialogues aren't captivating. Apart from that its a really short read . For a fast paced reader it would take 10-15 minutes to read. That's all for this short story.

All-New Kindle E-reader Review

For those who love reading books Kindle is a device that always revolves in their mind. But whether this new kindle E-reader is worth a purchase or not? Since I read and prefer E-books tremendously I had a wish to get a kindle since long time. But the price of the kindle seemed a bit absurd as compared to its usage.

I compared the specs online and did a bit of research but it didn't satisfy my curiosity whether it will be suitable for me or not. I am a person who reads a lot on screen. I read blogs, stories on Wattpad, articles over Websites hence considering my use case scenario the kindle would be only useful while reading the purchased books and the ARCs that I receive for the reviews.

I was almost  about to order the most basic version of kindle myself and then I saw it with one of my close friends. Luckily he allowed me to test the device and play around with it exploring the options inside so that I could post this review.

The kindle E-reader I am talking about here is the very basic model that comes for 5999 Rs. in India. If you think about the price to performance ratio this device I could say charges somewhat premium but does what it's meant for like a beast.

The device sports 6 inch E-ink display which is just amazing. This is a technology where there are minute ink particles beneath which form the pattern over the display. The resolution is 300ppi and its pretty crisp and clear.

I was amazed at the quality of display. I kept on reading long time but it didn't strain my eyes at all. The display was crisp clear even under the direct sunlight, no glare no reflection at all.
The Reading experience is just amazing on this device. It feels as if there is a real book in your hand or making it more realistic it looks like a photoframe. The screen mimics the paper so much that you'd hardly realise that it's a screen and not a paper.

The screen refresh rate is kinda disappointing but considering its purpose it feels fine. In my usage the images did left some ghost effect on the screen but it can be either device specific or a software bug because when we re-booted the device the ghost effect disappeared. As you can see in the images above.

You can also connect the device with Goodreads and see what your friends are reading and recommending. Sad part that you won't be able to cherish the colourful covers or Images here as its only Monochrome display.

I wanted to see if the 'experimental browser' as the kindle software calls it works or not. I tried opening my blog links and socials. To my surprise it took like 10 seconds to load my blog but it never loaded the social media(Facebook, Instagram, Twitter ) It did open goodreads quickly though and same with the Amazon store.

The battery life is almost for a month if you keep it disconnected most of the time after downloading your books. The device connects to WIFI and syncs with your amazon account very well. You can also use a code lock to secure your kindle from unauthorised access, though I feel its something that anyone is rarely gonna use.

There are a bunch of settings that you can customise to suit your needs and there's also a vocabulary building feature which can teach you new words daily. It also has the dictionary to help you while reading to find the meanings of the words that you might come across while reading.

The build quality is average and the bezels are too large considering 2018 where almost every eye is now used to seeing bezel-less or thin bezel displays. But considering it a reading device where you might read it even while eating etc, bezels can be justified. The device is light and can easily be held in one hand. You won't feel the pain even if you would hold it for an hour.

Now the biggest question should you buy it or not? If you are someone like me whose reading is not limited to published ebooks or ARCs that get sent to kindle then probably at this price you can get a decent smartphone or a tablet which would serve you way better as a secondary device or as a media device. You can also get a powerbank at a much cheaper rate if you are concerned about your device's battery while reading for hours. If it was priced at 2000 Rs to 3000 Rs range it could've been justified since it does pretty much nothing than reading ebooks. Also this version doesn't contain a backlight so you'd need to treat it as a real book even when its not a real one?

But if you are someone who reads at least 1hr-2hr a day then this device might justify its price since the amount of strain your eyes will get will be surely reduced. I would rather recommend Paperwhite since its a having a backlight which will help you during night reading(although reading in dark is not advised but we still do). This device might be a good choice for kids or senior citizens who aren't that tech-savy.

Honestly I have pretty mixed views about this device since its more of a fancy deal rather than a need. Although I might get one in future considering my voracious reading habits. But who knows the future? :P

Update:  A week later of uploading this post, I finally got a kindle myself and well lemme say one thing, it's totally worth it. My reading time is increased due to less eye strain. Plus I also read my university notes/pdfs over this which makes it easy for my studies as well.

Review: My Fathers lessons

Hello, I am back with a short little book review this time. I know it has taken me super long to post this review but schedule constraints are worst due to increased workload from the uni part. I had got this book a few months back to be speaking of this fairly, I was pretty excited to check this out since I had also reviewed a book from the same author which turned out to be really amazing, you can check out that review by clicking here. Apart from that, to be really honest I liked the book cover, you know food... This book was categorised in feminism in Goodreads hence that was another part that increased my curiosity.

I rated My Fathers lessons by Nivedita Vedurla with a 3 of 5 stars

Blurb From Goodreads: 
Do you often think why your chapattis are not round?
Do you feel you cannot prioritize things that you need to concentrate on?
Then you got to read about Meghna’s Father lessons to her about seeing life from a different perspective.
Grab a copy now and rediscover your view to see life.


This book is nothing like the ones I usually read and review. It was different in terms genre, concept and the content. I'd say rather than it being one single story it was a collection of many short stories where each of the short story had the stand and message of their own. This book showed many instances of an average girl's life.

Simple things that occur  in her life as a girl grows up are very well shown. It is a nice light read. Honestly I didn't find anything exciting enough to just go and grab a read or just plain worse to even neglect. It somewhere landed in the 'okay' zone at least for me. If you are a quick reader than this book won't even take more than 10-15 minutes. Yes, it's that short story. Since it was short enough and I don't have much to talk about it without giving out spoilers to that's all on my part for this one.

If you wanna try it out yourself than you can follow one of the links below to check it out for yourself.

Mi Band 2 Review in 2018

A week back, I had ordered myself a Mi Band 2 after a lot of mental debate, whether it'd be a good choice or just an impulsive decision. While working out and going on long cycling rides, I often was curious how much did the session had an effect on my body. Most of you would say visible changes inside the body are a better indicator but sadly I didn't had that much of a patience to wait for a few months or year to see how much did I change. Hence I decided to get myself a fitness band. Now if you want to get a fitness band in 2018, there are a lot of options from the popular ones like Garmin and Fitbit to the cheap ones like Mi Band.

I am pretty much sure if you are a student or someone who doesn't wanna invest too much at the very first time just like me, you would definitely go on searching for some cheap options that work fine with their said price. I decided to round of my search over Mi Band 2 after having a look over other bands from Lenovo, Honor, and Xiaomi's own Mi Band HRX version. I felt for the price to performance ratio Mi Band 2 would be great since it has all the required sensors and it was fitting fine in my budget. I didn't go for the HRX version because it lacked the heart-rate sensor, which was more important for me since if the only goal of mine had been just tracking how many steps I took, it could've been easily done with the apps in phone like Google Fit or Strava.

Some details on Mi Band 2

I have been hearing around people having battery claims as long as 30 days with this band hence decided to dive into the options and have a look at them myself. There are a ton of options that you can probably tweak inside the Mi Fit app as its the companion to the device. You'd need to install it from your app store.

The App itself is interesting as it has a ton of options like it can show you when you had deep sleep, when you were awake also when you had light sleep. Along with the usual data like Number of Steps taken or the activity done combining it with your heart rate when you are working out, the app can tell you where you lie in the fitness zone and what kind of exercise session you just had. Basically I'd say the Band is more of a put on and a forget device where the you have to sync the data with the app and it is the app which performs rest of the magic.

The band in my personal experience with the kind of heavy usage I have noticed a battery drain of close to 2-3%  a day. The Band can display things like Time, Date, Calories Burnt, Distance travelled, Heart Rate, Battery Percentage.

By far considering more than a week's usage I didn't find anything that can be complained about at this price. The only thing that kinda annoyed me is the strap that comes with the band.

Now why should you buy this and why not?
1. Price to Performance Ratio is great
2. Display is Oled
3. Sensors are accurate enough
4. Battery is good enough for a weeks of heavy usage.

1. Heart Rate sensor is a bit grumpy.
2. Strap could've been much better.
3. If you sync it with your phone 24/7 it might cause your phone to drain more battery.
4. You need to turn on the GPS and Sync with the band while having the workout.

Tips to Use Mi Band 2 Efficiently

1. Don't keep the band in sync all time. Sync the data at the end of the day, for an average day it can be synced even after a week.
2. Keep the options like Lift wrist to view info, Rotate wrist to view info, Heart Rate sleep assistant turned off  if you wanna have a tremendous battery life of a month?
3. Turn of the display heart rate option off in the details that you can view on the Band, because even on accidental touches you might trigger the heart-rate sensor and it'll drain battery even when you probably aren't even aware.

How different perception makes things interesting?

Many of you might have noticed the little subtitle beneath the Kaleidoscope, which is viewing the world with different vision.

Many times we forget that perception. Is such an important factor. The way we see things make it appear like that. Perceptions can many times create miracles. People who always had different perceptions from the people in their surroundings have always reached heights in their respective fields. Why? Because what they could see no one else was able to. Their perception to the world and things around them made them unique. Most of those faced heavy backlash from the same society which later treated then like gods and super humans.

I know what you are thinking, hypocrisy? Well I won't write about that, because difficulties always come your way. If you are not facing any difficultly then probably you're on the wrong track.

As in the pic by 9gag, see how the perceptions differ? 

If I had removed the line from the pic it could've looked like monster on metallic planet, but a smile comes your way when you realise that its a lobster in a bucket.

Saw how the way you look at things make them totally different? Now imagine a situation where there's a super difficult task and you have already failed like 5-6 times. You can't just go past that and you now are desperate to just get over with it as soon as possible. What you will do? Charge at it like a mad bull?

Nah, sit down, relax and think wisely. Plan out the thing, see where you went wrong. By that I don't mean the stereotypical answers or philosophical answers that would give you temporary soothing. Find out logical reasoning behind those failures and step by step correct them. Do the same task again and see whether you pass or fail.

People might blur your perception and try to change it towards something often it is called brainwashing. Remember, world isn't always as you see it. You see the things in a particular way because its been taught to you since you were kid. Things might be way more different and at times not so impressive or exciting. Reality can be harsh, but as soon as you learn to deal with it, you are on your path to progress and none can stop you other than you yourself.

Motivation isn't something which can be outsourced from attending seminars or speeches. Its something that always lies within you, all you need to do is just look at it differently.

The sole purpose of my blog is to make people look at life via different angles and just like Kaleidoscope observe patterns as the perceptions change. That's the beauty of life. In jungles if lion fails to hunt, its a life saver aka happy Moment for deer as it didn't loose a family member. But when lion has a successful hunt its a sad moment for deer but a happy moment for lion as its cubs won't be sleeping hungry today.
