Best Quote

Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And then one fine morning—
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

We believe in the thing that writing is a form of art that can’t be judged or rated. Every book has got something to tell and you will definitely learn something in the end even if you think the book is not good enough. Just like not all people like the same colour, similarly, not all people can like the same book. Every book has a different set of readers and we help to reach the right book to the right group by our unique reviewing style. That’s why instead of giving ratings, critical review or any other type of negative feedback; we share the things you will learn from any particular book. If it is something that resonates with what you are looking for in a book, you have found your next read!!! We also try to give the review in the simplest manner, so that we can encourage even the nonreaders to join the group.
