Possibly Favourite Book of the Year - The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas [Review]

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

"What's the point of having a voice if you're gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn't be?"

Sixteen-year-old Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighbourhood where she was born and raised and her posh high school in the suburbs. The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed.


Cover Reveal - Awaken by Ashok K. Banker

Present-day avatars of mythic heroes defending the world against an alien invasion! #girlpower

Today I'm revealing the cover of this fantasy novel set in contemporary India with badass female characters. I previously read a book by the author and absolutely loved the writing! Scroll to see the cover and the synopsis! Thanks to Pan Macmillan India for this opportunity!

Present-day avatars of mythic heroes defending the world against an alien invasion.

The Haters are coming to destroy all life on earth. It is not a question of if, but when.

The Brahmaand has already rung the warning bell and the awakening of the Preservers has already begun. Kiara unexpectedly finds her skin covered with golden fur and her sense of smell extraordinarily enhanced; Saumya is suddenly able to go from Ahmedabad to New York in just a step; and Sia's songs have the powers to do things she had never imagined possible.

First in the thrilling Shakti Trilogy set in contemporary India, Ashok Banker's action-packed and brilliantly imagined Awaken introduces our unlikely heroes who must discover and harness their superpowers before they can protect and preserve the Earth from the wrath of a menacing alien invasion.
