Impressive cover design. Pankaj Impresses me with his vedic fiction and his writing style.There are so much self realization books in the market, but this book stands out because it brings vedic and modernization duo in the picture. The firstlook says that the book is written in simple english for easy reading.

The book is set in and around the fictional town of Levion. The protagonists are Conner White and Victoria Parks.

So he reaches Levion with the purpose of reconnecting with people and finding himself. There he encounters Victoria Parks, a girl who is fighting her own demons. Dark secrets, including ones of death and illness, are exposed all around; with several prominent characters all seemingly having their own inscrutable motives. And Conner White has to save Victoria and the town of Levion. But to do that, he has to first save himself.
This is Varun’s Debut and he is only 18 years old.
Though the cover design is not one of the great one, But I like the way Varun has written this book. Going through the writings ,This book doesn’t really seem to be like an debut . Excited to read this.
Dreaming never felt more real.For Haven Green, dreams were just unfulfilled fantasies that would never turn into reality. Little does she know it will be the only way for her to survive.Haven Green, innocent yet yearning to commit a sin learns the power of extra-ordinariness and believes in herself once again when she meets the mysterious, handsome and bold Tenace Colby who drives her intimate passions beyond limits. He guides her on a journey of self-discovery that not only draws her further away from reality, which she had been rooting for, but also generates a whole new world for her to discover her identity. The story grows on twists, turns and surprises that leave you astounded. Unravel an adventure that leads you on a journey of Innocence filled with daring Desires.
First Look: Book Cover aptly talks about the blurb.Clearly this book talks about desire, sin and innocence. You create mistake-by mistake first and then learn from it and its classically a trait of the innocent. Dhisti Desai is just 21,but when I glanced her book it clearly says that she is a professional. This is clearly a day to day story of innocence and desire but told in a fashion that would inspire you.
Again, I love the cover design.
When She Smiled
Publisher: Notion Press
Roy is a fifteen year old Bengali who has spent the last ten years of his life growing up in Shimla, India. While his family is completely academically oriented, he wants something more. Finally he meets Akanksha in school, who turns his world upside down with her gorgeous looks and mind boggling smile. As fate would have it, she joins his tuition, and thus begins the torrid year of puppy love, romance, heartbreak, tragedy, and self discovery. Set among the scenic Shivalik hills of Shimla when mobile phones and internet were non-existent, this is a story of how an average young teenager comes to terms with his destiny.
First Look: Book cover is so damn catchy that you would read this book right away.This clearly is a beautiful love story, meaning the love story in the hills without phone and internet. Nope, they don’t take a selfie and upload it in facebook and change the relationship status. They just love each other like the way love really want it to be loved.
Again, This book design is really one eye cooler

Angelic Beats is the story of a boy in his late teens who falls in love with a married woman. Both defy their ages; the woman for her looks and innocence and the boy for his confidence and clarity in life along with integrity. The journey of the boy for his passion also becomes journey of love for both that finally takes them to more meaningful destinations. It unfolds the changing perspective of a young boy and a married woman in various situations of life treading the path of love and success together. How they carry on with love and friendship as a responsibility is quintessence to their journeys.Love can make one completely blind or it can candle all the darkness in life.Sometimes destiny becomes the greatest magician. It brings two opposite people, Sahil and Aakanksha, on one platform. Even their personal statuses do not match for one is married and the other single. One is confident about making choices in life, whereas the other is always scared of making a choice. One is always positive, and the other is negative in outlook. Unlike mathematics, where “+” and “−” always make “−”, sometimes in real life, “+” and “−“ do make a “+” together. On the road leading to his passion, he happened to meet the first love of his life too. Before going to the National Defence Academy for the journey to be a commissioned officer in Indian Air Force finally, he introduced “love” in her and his own life and pledged his heart to her. The arrows of cupid struck her also. Do their final choices engulf all other relationships like a storm and rage and bleed their self-esteem? Or are they able to carry their choices gracefully through their quest for happiness?
First look: A small book, cover pic is designed simple.Sarita keeps it simple and straightforward talking about small aspects of love which really makes a lot of sense.First look says Sarita knows about civil services and she has written this book because she knows what its to be in civil services.
