📑 Review: Bird Box by Josh Malerman

What if, in order to survive, you have to isolate yourself completely in darkness. What are the chances of you going mad before you end up surviving (that is if you make it). How far would you go to survive, what if there is more at stake than you could have ever imagined.

💬 Thursday Quotables: No god But God by Reza Aslan

Hosted by Book Shelf Fantasies, "Thursday Quotables" is a weekly feature that highlights a great quote/line/passage that you com across while delved deep into your current read. The quote can be beautiful, funny, surprising, anything that catches your eye and stands out! ​My current read is one that, honestly, I should have started reading ages ago. Keeping aside the fact that it's been recommended to me time and time again, it's also, technically, my June "Ramadan" Book (of the Month) Club pick.
