This blog is dedicated to both fiction and non-fiction. My personal favorites in fiction are mainly contemporary romance, suspense thriller,  historical fiction and YA then in non-fiction, I love to review inspirational, self-improvement and finance related books. I review outside these genres also because of the fact I love to read.

Awakening Colors

Awakening Colors - Ritu K. Gupta I feel sorry for myself as i initially judged the book by it's cover and the not so promising book description.It's not like they were bad or worse.It's just that i wasn't attracted to it.After i enjoyed reading the book, i was like, is there a sequel?If the author haven't yet thought about a sequel, I'd like her to write one right now because there are so many things left unanswered in the book.In Awakening colors, Ritu K.Gupta delivers us the story of Pari who has the ability to see though people by the color that is surrounding them.Each color has its own meaning.For instance, if she sees bright red color around people, it is either they are going to be in big trouble or they will encounter a major loss in their life.It was hard for me to believe it at first.But as the book progresses more and more, i can't wonder about the great ability of Pari and what she is going to do with her immense power of seeing colors.The first half of the book was tortoise slow but it kept me going anyway.There was not a single moment i could point out as being bored up by Pari's story.I was actually living in the story.I was also amazed by the lots of marvellous and wonderful quotes extraordinarily well written by Ritu K.Gupta.Pari is not a saint.But there are things that is happening around her life after meeting up with a huge accident that makes her believe in spirutuality more than before. She also loses her father in the accident that is when she sees the strange colors around her after being comatized for several months.When i came to the last page of this astonishing novel, I had lot of questions to ask the author.Let me say a few non-spoilers(may be spoilers) alone.Was Pari's father killed?Why is Navina's son doesn't behave like a boy at his own age?Is Arche a good man or a bad man?Why is Pari seeing all those colors?What do Chanakya, her mother's spiritual guru want from her?Why is Doctor Vincent's deceased wife look like Pari?There are lot more questions like this keep coming to my mind, so i want all these hundreds and hundreds of questions to be answered in the next series.Thanks to the author for giving me a free ecopy of this book for review purpose.
