ORANGE CITY.

My 2nd read from the author’s work.
His 1st Sci- Fi.
I AM SO EXCITED!!

Pre- Order. Releases 16th March 2021.

ORANGE CITY by @leematthewgoldberg
1st book in the Series.
231 pages.

🦉 Did you find the “title” &/ or the “cover” very peculiar or different or unique??
Did it remind you of an orange soda drink?
Was it able to catch your attention/ eye?

🍊 Imagine a secret, hidden city that gives a second chance at life for those selected to come: felons, deformed outcasts, those on the fringe of the Outside World.
Everyone gets a job, a place to live; but you are bound to the city forever.
You can never leave. 

Its citizens are ruled by a monstrous figure called the “Man” who resembles a giant demented spider from the lifelike robotic limbs attached to his body.
Everyone follows the man blindly, working hard to make their Promised Land stronger, too scared to defy him and be discarded to the Empty Zones.

After ten years as an advertising executive, Graham Weatherend receives an order to test a new client, Pow! Sodas.
After one sip of the orange flavor, he becomes addicted, the sodas causing wild mood swings that finally wake him up to the prison he calls reality. 

🍊 An atmospheric read creating a dystopian world which has the ability to scare me to bits..
This sci-fi story was so engaging & at the same time, it killed me imagining & living in such a world, for every minuscule sec.
I let out a sigh of relief once the book finished, as if I had been holding my breath..to be pulled into the sequel, 🍋 LemonWorld.
Its a fun read, written in an interesting way..a style very different from what I had experienced in my previous read THE ANCESTOR, by the author.

🍊 Lee Matthew Goldberg is the author of THE ANCESTOR, THE DESIRE CARD, SLOW DOWN and THE MENTOR from St. Martin’s Press. He has been published in multiple languages and nominated for the 2018 Prix du Polar. ORANGE CITY, his first sci-fi novel, is forthcoming in 2021 along with his YA series RUNAWAY TRAIN.

#bookreview of MY LITTLE BOOK OF LOVE by @priyakumar7272

🍄Everytime i pick up a book by the author, i am floored by the beautiful packaging in which the book arrives plus the hand signed copy with words of encouragement 💚

🍒This particular book is about 100 pages & looks like a quick read but for me personally, it was not. I took my own sweet time to absorb it.

🍄It is all about LOVE.
Self love? Yes.
Love between two people? Yes.
Plus it tells you some very important things about LOVE which we generally miss or ignore.
– What exactly is love..
– How does it feel when you are in love..
– What is self love..
– When you love someone..
– WHAT LOVE IS NOT..the warning signs..
– How does it feel when someone loves you..

🍒It has beautiful quotes which are original & by the author herself.

🍄More importantly, it has insight from the author’s experience & wisdom garnered through life..

🌸
Have you felt the urge to scribble, doodle, express your thoughts..while reading a book but you stop coz of no space or coz of the fear of ruining the book?

Well, this book caters to that need too with ample space given especially for scribbling your thoughts.

🍒It’s a cute, cute book for easy reference & insight & a mini journal too.

🍄Smile at yourself when you look inthe mirror.

If you really love someone, set them free from your clutches of expectations and need for reciprocation. My Little Book Of Love is a collection of my original quotes. It is my reminder of love. It is my space for revision and refills so I can stay true to who I am and how I feel. In this little book of love, a collection of my original quotes, I have put down the feelings and expressions of love, and of warnings about what it is not. I may already know it, but then a timely reminder may just save a heartbreak. And in reading it all together, I get a different perspective every single time. It is my written statement of what I know, of what I have felt, and of the greatness that I need to continue to maintain in myself. I invite you on this journey, sprinkled all the way with love.

Thankyouu for writing this!
&
@hayhouseindia thankyou so much for the review copy! Gratitude

JIM KWIK is an internationally famous memory improvement, brain optimization & accelerated learning expert. He has worked with the elite & the famous & his online courses, videos & podcasts are so pragmatic & a rage.

This book has been COLOURED red, blue, green because I couldn’t help but highlight, comment & write/ express myself in it!

 It is divided into 4 MAIN PARTS with the 1st getting the reader into a comfort zone where in Jim shares his own childhood experiences & how he eventually overcame those, to be who he is, now.
 The 2nd gets you in thinking mode & makes you question your own beliefs/ blockades.
 The read picks up pace in the 3rd part, & it became my favourite. Here it helps give us clarity of what we want to achieve actually & the “why” of it. Loved it
 The last part, gives us simple strategies & methods to achieve what we aim to reach.

DO THEY WORK??
YESSSS
but the catch is in IMPLEMENTATION.

Unless & until, we are diligent, honest with the methodology & ourselves, no magic is going to happen!

DID IT HELP ME??
Oh yess, & I am so so grateful.

WHAT ELSE do you get?
highlighted quotes & precious words;
pictures, eye catching fonts, diagrams;
small small tasks which actually get you all pumped up;
systematic & easy comprehendable content.

Jim believes, LEADERS ARE READERS.
He has given suggested readings at the end of the book.
Also the owner of the book can attend a 1hour speed-reading masterclass for free + free excess to resources online

It has references & index at the end, which completes this beautiful hardcover perfectly.

‍♀️ For me PERSONALLY,  it was a feast to indulge as the personal experiences of Jim made it interesting & realistic while the pragmatic methods, helped me in my constraints.

MAYBE WE SHOULD TEACH THE WAY THEY LEARN”.

“Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher.” ~ Wordsworth

While the world recovers from the aftermath of the pandemic, Manjeet Brar has her issues to deal with. She loses her job. Not only this, but her boyfriend also dumps her. To draw herself away from the misery of life, she starts watching reality TV. Soon, she develops a crush on the host of one of the shows.

Her recent crush on the host of the Wild Tuskers show helps her nurse her broken heart. But this virtual fascination sparks a new desire. She wants to meet the real Roshan Jaysingh.

Would a wildcard option to participate in the show tantalizing enough to lure this New Yorker to India? Is Roshan Jaysingh the man of Manjeet’s dream? Her prince charming. Her knight in the shining armour or is there someone else made for her…

Someone whose sight is repulsive enough to cause her glaucoma.
Someone self-centred, self-loving, and self-absorbed package of sheer arrogance.
Someone who gives her all the reasons to shed the mask of civility and follow her instincts.
Someone who makes her skin crawl, and at the same time, breathe with feelings unknown to her?

The one who is as hot as hell. And the one who breaks all the walls and gets under Manjeet’s skin.
