Book review: What your soul already knows by Salma Farook

Author: Dr. Salma Farook

Genre:- self help


We live life like automatons, moving with reckless inattentiveness through the preset motions. We have lost touch with our inner selves, the self that has all the answers, that is imbued with the natural balance of joy and productivity. What have we forgotten? What have we lost to this mechanical lifestyle?

The secrets to joy, aren’t secrets at all. They aren’t being whispered. You are just not listening loudly enough to the wisdom of your inner voice.

This book is a reminder to listen.

It is a detailed exploration of elements such as personal qualities, interpersonal skills and healthy habits that make up the path to intuitive happiness and productivity.

My view of the book :

What your soul already knows by Salma Farook is a self – help book based on the topic of self motivation and self awareness.

There are different topics in this book which focuses on many aspects of one’s life.

The first topic is attitude. In this the author has defined how our attitude changes as we grow up. Day by day we are loosing the child inside us. Which means that we are losing all the emotions,innocence and the sense of being kind to others. People are just being mean and self-centered. The author has beautifully described the innocence of a child by giving the example of the boy in striped pajamas .

The second chapter is bafflement. Here the author says about how we are always feeling bewildered. We never try to do something good for ourselves. We have to be in search always to find the truly amazing meaning of our life.

The book has so many other chapters like these two which will actually make you understand your inner self that we are losing because of our messy lifestyle.

This book will show you the path but you are the ultimate who can understand your own soul. This book shows you that if you are willing to live a happy life then nobody is going to tell you how. its something that your soul already knows and you just have to find it.

The book is an amazing read and i would recommend it to everyone who feels that their life is useless. This book will make you understand your inner soul.


Book review : Indeliberate Deliberations by Shivansh Umatt

Author: Shivansh Umatt

Publisher: Pblishing

Genre: poems


Indeliberate deliberations is a collection of heartfelt poems, twenty in total on various themes.

The book is divided into four broad themes- Latency, Abyss, Frost and Froth and Gory musings. The poem borrow the recently popular art of free verse poetry, with no fixed structure. They express emotions, deals with heartbreaks, reminisce in the nature or dance with the tunes of silent cacophonies. Composed within a short timeframe of one year, you will surely relate to this tiny collection of short poems.

My view of the book:

Indeliberate deliberations is a collection of 20 poems on various themes. There are four main themes under which the poems are listed.

The first theme is Abyss. It means something deep. The poems in this section truly have deep meaning.

The second section is Latency. It means the state of existing but not yet developed. The poems in this section describes the growth of an individual.

The third section is frost and froth. The poems in this section defines the beauty of nature and the emotions it reflects.

The fourth and the last section is gory musings. It means a period of violence. The poems in this section define the violence.

My favorite poem was Flowery grave from Abyss.

Flowery grave is about the post death scene. Through the poem the poet is trying to say that one day we are all going to become dust. People will come to put flowers on our Graves. But the flowers will remind us about the mortal world where every living thing has an end. So he says that instead of burying him they should put him on the pyre where his body would have turned into ashes and flowers will stop reminding him that he is dead.

I loved all the poems. The poems have deep meanings and if you understand what the poet is trying to say you can relate to the poems.

Overall its a good collection of poems and you can read this book.


Book review : ABC calling by Vineeth Menon

Author: Vineeth Menon

Genre: Romance, Suspense

Blurb :

Meghana, who is about to leave to the US for pursuing her Masters.
Adithya, an Assistant Manager at Syndicate Bank.
The story picks up on August 15, 2015: when India is celebrating her 69th Birthday, Adithya receives a facebook message from an unknown profile. The sequences thereafter take a very interesting turnaround till the end with a good blend of situational humour and suspense.
Set in the ‘state with many worlds’, ABC Calling is a tale enveloped with love of two persons from different pages of life.

My view of the book :

ABC calling by Vineeth Menon is a romance and suspense based book. Its not basically a love story where boy meets girl and they fall in love. It actually takes another track where a boy receives a fake call from a girl.

The plot of the story is about a boy named Adithya who receives a message on his Facebook from an account with display picture as ABC. The message said “please call me na”. The boy calls on the number and a girl answers the call and asks him to meet her at a restaurant. When Adithya goes to meet the girl she doesn’t show up. The rest is suspense where the story takes a twist. The plot seems interesting but could have been better if the story took an awesome twist then the suspense part would have made a lot more sense.

The writing style is good in the beginning and gives a sense of suspense, But the middle part is not that great. There is a lot of information which is actually not needed.

Although I liked the start of the story, where it is all suspense about the girl who calls.But i expected the story to be more interesting later which actually didn’t turned out that great and was kinda boring. My expectations were high for the end and the thing about this book is that there is no end and it leaves you thinking what actually the story was.

I have mixed review for this book but i won’t say its the best i read and neither say that it was the worst. According to me it was okayish. You can give it a try.


I am thankful to the author for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

My view of the book:

When broken hearts meet is a romance novel by Arushi Vats. Its a love story based on two people falling in love for the second time.

What happens when two broken hearts meet?

When two broken hearts find each other the road gets very bumpy at first but sooner or later if the pieces fit correctly they heal each other, they protect each other, take care of each other and they love each other for the rest of their lives.

The plot of the story is about a girl named Avanti who is shattered because of her past relationship and is not ready to fall in love again but then she meets a charming boy named Suhaas who is very kind and caring. When she is starting to fall in love all over again her past hits her and she is broken, her relationship shatters and everything becomes a big misunderstanding . But this time its up to her whether she wants to forget her past? Solve the misunderstandings and fall in love again or leave it.

The writing style is really good. The way in which the author expressed the emotions of the characters and the feeling of pain is really amazing. The twist and turns and the feeling of love could be felt through the words.

My favorite part of the story was the ending. But i won’t describe it as no spoilers but their is something you’d like 😉. This book was the first love story i had read since Two years and i seriously liked it.

Overall the book is a good read and the message it gives that even broken hearts could fall in love for the second time is really awesome.
