#KBSKitabReview so far

On 21st July we started a hashtag series on instagram called ‘KBSKitabReview‘. The basic idea of starting this series is to help readers to select their next book to read. So here are the some reviews we have received so far.

The Sky is Falling & The Fifth Miracle Review by me. . .

#KBSKitabReview

#KBSKitabReview

  The Sky is Falling: This is my first book by Sidney Sheldon. The novel is about Dana Evans, a TV anchorwomen trying to find the killer who murdered the Winthrop family. The use of suspense is gripping & eye-popping. The writing is lucid that keeps you hooked till the end. Genre: fiction, thriller Rating: 4/5 The Fifth Miracle: The origin of life is one of the major puzzles that science is trying to solve since the dawn of human history. Paul Davies manages to engage the reader in an incredibly referenced & thoroughly researched exploration into life on other planets. Highly Recommended! Genre: non-fiction, sci-fi Rating: 4.5/5

Dil usy dhoond laya hai review by Areeba

 It’s a compilation of different afsany. It’s VERY WELL written, the characters and the dialogs are fantastic. Picking Asya Razaqqi for the first time was worth it. My rating: 4/5. Not full stars because a few afsany were written in same tone. Genre: Short stories

Notes from the Underground Review by Fiza Mari

A VERY WELL WRITTEN book about an isolated man who starts writing to an anonymous audience (believing he will never have readers) about his life, his confessions, his contradictory behavior and the inability to cope up with the society around him and how he believes that his intelligence is the reason of his misery and isolation. What makes this book so realistic is the fact that there are people who actually live such miserable lives. Do give it a read! Genre: philosophy Rating: 4.5/5

Past Imperfect Review by Raahat

I finished reading ‘Past Imperfect’ by Julian Fellows last night. “A gloriously funny, bumpy ride through the modern times”. The novel takes us back to the Season of 1968 and its lavish balls and parties, to the debutantes, to the eligible men who accompanied them. Damian Baxter is filthy rich (new money) but he has one concern which is becoming more urgent as the weeks go by and he gets nearer to his death, who should inherit his fortune. he doesn’t think he has any children but one day, a letter from an ex-GF suggests he may have fathered a child, the letter is anonymous, he needs someone to find out who the woman is, and that someone is Damian’s sworn enemy. it’s truly a bumpy ride, the balls, and the scenarios. I’d give it 3.9/5. Genre: Fiction

FanGirl Review by Manal

kbs3

A weak plot so it falls behind in the list of good contemporary novels but over all a nicely written young-adult. Rowell can do better. 2/5.

Manuscript found in Accra Review by Noor Unnahar

My newly found love: philosophy genre. It’s probably because I’ve been reading too much from Paulo Coelho. This book was the best one, after The Alchemist. If you’re looking for a quotes-and-wisdom filled nostalgic read, then Manuscript Found in Accra is a tremendous book. I rate it: 5/5
 

Karachi, You’re Killing Me! Review by Manal

Reading this book was like reading someone’s diary who’s very VERY whiny. Kind of funny at only a few parts. Waste of time otherwise. Horrible ending. 1/5.
 

Shadow and Bone Review by Manal

BEST BOOK EVER. The plot, the characters; everythingg! If you’re a fan of The Hunger Games & Divergent trilogy, you should definitely give a read. Lastly, before this book goes mainstream; calling dibs on Darkling and Mal both.  5/5 Genre: Fantasy.
You can also submit your book reviews by uploading a picture of a book cover on your instagram, write a short review with genre and it’s rating out 5 and tag it with #KBSKitabReview. You can find us on instagram to follow this series.

#KBSKitabReview A Hashtag Series

Few months back I swapped 2 books at the KhiBookSwap meetup and finally I finished them. So I had an idea instead of sharing their reviews on goodreads or on this blog, we should start a hashtag series called ‘#KBSKitabReview‘ that might help some book buyers. Every month we will be featuring one best photo with this hashtag at our instagram account.

Here are the rules to be a part of this hashtag series:

1. Upload an image of a book with a short review, genre and its rating on your instagram.

2. Tag that photo with #kbskitabreview

And here is my first contribution to the #KBSKitabReview
