Should we be held guilty & punish ourselves infinitely for our mistakes❓ To err is human, no⁉️

“We all make mistakes, have struggles and even regret things in our past..
BUT
You are not your mistakes,
you are not your struggles..
YOU are HERE now WITH the POWER to SHAPE your DAY and YOUR future‼️”

 BRATHIUS LEGACY (history) BOOK-1

THE THREAT BELOW.
Written by @jasonsethlatshaw
&
Published by Fernweh Books in United States
In
July, 2015.
____________


#qotd Do you like to read a standalone book or a series❓
#aotd I prefer to read series only when I have all the parts‼️
___________

508 pgs, 154 chapters- it’s a thick book but d amaziiiiiing Narrative makes it a PAGE TURNER‼️
___________

It is fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, YA,  dystopian all rolled into one‼️
___________
Here’s the STORYLINE:

ICELYN is 17yrs old, daughter of the head of the MOUNTAIN ️ TOP.
She is supposed to marry  RINCAS sometime later but she is least interested in him.
She is always absorbed in some or the other adventure with ADORANE, her childhood friend.
The story talks about clans, class diversification, privileges &  perks based on strata in society..

SO MountainTop is the peak of a mountain where this small population of people from the BRATHIUS legacy live.
They are forbidden to go below a certain level, where an age old wall is built, for protection.
There’s ultra  bears, ultra 女 lions & more danger looming down‼️

Adorane takes Icelyn beyond the wall, in a fun adventure but what they saw there…leaves em running uphill for their life‼️

The ppl on the mountain top survive mostly on the water pumped from the resources downhill..& now they suspect someone has poisoned the water there.

Who will go to see what is the cause & rectify it❓
More than the danger looming..there’s more to this story..

Ample Mystery, magic, adventure & the TASTE OF FREEDOM.
___________

MY FAVOURITE PART OF THE STORY WAS, HOW ICELYN FINDS HER TRUE SELF ON THIS JOURNEY.
___________

Read the book, if you wanna enjoy a perfectly written script‼️

I am now READIng the next in the series.

❤Q- will I buy the paperback version of the book?
A- yesssss

朗I feel, all that this book needs is a beautiful embossed, foiled, hardcover.
4.5/5

Saahi & Sudhir- a beautiful story of friendship, love & relationships- in HINDI.

“तुम्हें मिलने से तुम्हें पाने तक, तुम्हें पाने से तुम्हें खोने तक का सफ़र, हाथ से नहीं छूटा, क्योंकि तुम मुझ में और मैं तुम में कहीं न कहीं बाकी थे ।”

#qotd Do you like to read books in your mother toungue ⁉️
#aotd I am trying to include atleast 1 book in my monthly reading栗
__________

First & foremost,
Many congratulations  to the author @yogita for writing such a DESCRIPTIVE & EXPRESSIVE debut Novel full of emotions, explained vividly throughout.
__________

There are two narratives, one by Saahi & other by Sudhir.

It begins with the timeline going 7 years back, to give a brief up on the background story.

Then it comes back to the present & the story continues..

It finally ends with a skip forward of 1 year.

The ending is an open ending where the author hints explicitly at a sequel.

There are beautiful poems peppered throughout the read.

The story is fabulously expressed, quality of paper is also good.

There’s negligible use of eng words, here & there.

The font could have been slightly bigger & there is scope for better editing becoz the concept & the story & especially the author’s ways of tackling Emotions is way awesome, so why lose coz of average editing‼️
__________

Here’s the story‼️

Sudhir, an only child of working parents, was very intelligent but an introvert during his school days.

Saahi, his new neighbour & classmate helps him overcome his inhibitions & work towards his goal in life.

Sudhir is very creative, saahi probes him to concentrate on his art..

Saahi wants to become a writer when she grows up.

They have a very close bond of friendship throughout school days.

Then tragedy strikes, saahi’s parents die in a car crash & her uncle takes her with him to America.
In the meanwhile, sudhir’s grandma had expired & so he was also not in town.

The two couldn’t meet & for the next 7 years they long for each other, become successful professionals & realise their friendship was more than friendship.

Eventually Saahi locates Sudhir but doesn’t meet him due to various fears & insecurities..

The emotions & the turmoil is beautifully explained right from the school days till the end

Will they be able to meet, express their feelings & have a HEA⁉️
Read the book to know more‼️
___________

As the author has hinted at a sequel, I will be eagerly waiting to indulge in the same‼️

MORE Power to #hindiliterature ‼️
