The first 4 chapters of Tower of Dawn were the only few chapters that felt kind of stretched out, only because new characters were introduced. But! As soon as I got familiar with the new characters, this book turned out so much better than I expected it to be. I loved it SO much!

I loved how Chaol Westfall evolved into his better self, I loved how interesting the new characters were, I loved how I got to know more about Nesryn Faliq and I simply LOVED Antica. The author described the city Antica so beautifully; it was a picturesque mixture of Sharjah, Ankara and Rome, my absolute favorites!

5 out of 5 stars for this captivating book and for my darling, Chaol Westfall. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Book Thief is a story about a German girl from the time of World War 2 that was narrated by the DEATH himself... by this tiny synopsis you must have already figured out how incredible this book will turn out to be. And honestly, it actually did.

Wait just a minute, I’ll be right back.

*Goes under the blanket and sobs uncontrollably*

Oh Rudy.... 😭

*Collects herself and slowly walks back to the computer.*

This book had so many good characters, the writing style was SO INCREDIBLE, the story was so heartbreaking, and the descriptions about everything were so beautiful.

I am, for the first time ever, speechless.

Can I blabber about the writing style of Markus Zusak a little bit more? Because the word ‘incredible’ doesn’t feel like enough.

The book was written in such a comical yet serious manner, a very unique combination that’s hard to find in books these days. I always thought this book was over-hyped, until I read the first paragraph, and I was instantly hooked! And the most important part… I cried, a lot.

Don’t share the latter fact to anyone, though, or I’ll give you the most unforgiving pinch under your pretty little arm so hard that you’ll regret ever KNOWING ME.

Threats aside, READ this book if you haven’t already! You’ll surely love it.

5 out of 5 stars for this incredible piece of work. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

“If only she could be so oblivious again, to feel such love without knowing it, mistaking it for laughter.”

Painting Kuwait Violet was like a haunted story without any real ghosts in it, at least not in the cloudy and unearthly forms. The ghosts of this book were the humans themselves.

I feel this is among those books that will have a long time impact on me and my soul. Life is so unfair for some people, and it’s breaking my heart to even imagine that someone in real life had to go through the hardships the main character of this book went through and still could not get justice.

This story is about a young Indian girl in the 1990’s stuck in a pool full of debts to pay after her father’s unfortunate demise. Unable to find a job even after trying for months, she finally gets a job offer, but not a very good one. She has to work as a maid in a wealthy house in Kuwait. She accepts the job offer and this is where the story begins.

Life gets awfully busy with uncountable house chores, and just when she thinks everything had finally gotten into a right yet busy pace, she finds out that the maids before her; either ran away, got absconded or impregnated by someone living in that very building, but no one ever speaks.

Will she be the next victim, or will she be able to rescue herself?

This book has left me with a gloomy heart and I don’t know what to do. I have never been this disturbed or revolted by a villain in a book so much before, ever! This book has real scary damned villains; you can trust me on that.

4.5 stars for the book that left an invisible scar. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
