Cuba (Winner of the Pulitzer Prize) Book Review:

In 1961, at the height of the Cold War, the United States severed diplomatic relations with Cuba, where a momentous revolution had taken power three years earlier. For more than half a century, the stand-off continued—through the tenure of ten American presidents and the fifty-year rule of Fidel Castro. His death in 2016, and the retirement of his brother and successor Raúl Castro in 2021, have spurred questions about the country’s future. Meanwhile, politics in Washington—Barack Obama’s opening to the island, Donald Trump’s reversal of that policy, and the election of Joe Biden—have made the relationship between the two nations a subject of debate once more. Now, award-winning historian Ada Ferrer delivers an ambitious chronicle written for an era that demands a new reckoning with the island’s past. Spanning more than five centuries, Cuba: An American History reveals the evolution of the modern nation, with its dramatic record of conquest and colonization, of slavery and freedom, of independence and revolutions made and unmade. Along the way, Ferrer explores the influence of the United States on Cuba and the many ways the island has been a recurring presence in US affairs. This is a story that will give Americans unexpected insights into the history of their own nation and, in so doing, help them imagine a new relationship with Cuba. Filled with rousing stories and characters, and drawing on more than thirty years of research in Cuba, Spain, and the United States—as well as the author’s own extensive travel to the island over the same period—this is a stunning and monumental account like no other. --

A Thirsting Land Book Review:

1946: For the widowed young mother Kay Fitzpatrick the return from the all-enveloping heat of wartime Alexandria to the chill of post-war England is both an alien experience and a homecoming. For Laurenz and Patrizia Gold, Jewish refugees scarred by their flight from Nazi-occupied Austria, the bleak repatriation camp outside Priorton represents a chance to establish new roots. While lonely Kay struggles to find an identity of her own in a town full of family history, Laurenz Gold's ruthless hunger will stop at nothing to make his new life a success. But, in a land slowly recovering from the exhaustion of war, will the tormented past which drives Laurenz so fiercely destroy the fragile hopes of those around him?

Before We Were Strangers Book Review:

From the USA TODAY bestselling author of Sweet Thing and Nowhere But Here comes a love story about a Craigslist “missed connection” post that gives two people a second chance at love fifteen years after they were separated in New York City. To the Green-eyed Lovebird: We met fifteen years ago, almost to the day, when I moved my stuff into the NYU dorm room next to yours at Senior House. You called us fast friends. I like to think it was more. We lived on nothing but the excitement of finding ourselves through music (you were obsessed with Jeff Buckley), photography (I couldn’t stop taking pictures of you), hanging out in Washington Square Park, and all the weird things we did to make money. I learned more about myself that year than any other. Yet, somehow, it all fell apart. We lost touch the summer after graduation when I went to South America to work for National Geographic. When I came back, you were gone. A part of me still wonders if I pushed you too hard after the wedding… I didn’t see you again until a month ago. It was a Wednesday. You were rocking back on your heels, balancing on that thick yellow line that runs along the subway platform, waiting for the F train. I didn’t know it was you until it was too late, and then you were gone. Again. You said my name; I saw it on your lips. I tried to will the train to stop, just so I could say hello. After seeing you, all of the youthful feelings and memories came flooding back to me, and now I’ve spent the better part of a month wondering what your life is like. I might be totally out of my mind, but would you like to get a drink with me and catch up on the last decade and a half? M

Suddenly Royal Book Review:

Samantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working on a master's degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it's to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed . . . As crown prince of Lilaria, Alex D'Lynsal has had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures in the press have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She's stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone's front-page news. While Sam tries to navigate her new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders.

3 STORIES: RAJSHEKHAR BASU Book Review:

These three stories by Parashuram offer a short, yet vivid glimpse into the colourful cultural confusion of the colonial encounter in the hilarious world of the upper-middle-class Bengali. They playfully invert the colonial gaze, showing how the subjects viewed the ruler. But most importantly, these are stories of humour, implying, perhaps, that the ground on which two cultures collide is not necessarily just a space of conflict, but also a fertile ground on which laughter grows, uninhibited.

We will always select for you three great works to instigate your mind, this time the topic is: Romantic Era The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers7 Best Short Stories by H.P. Lovecraft7 best short stories by M. R. James The King in Yellow is a collection of short stories written by Robert W. Chambers and published in 1895. The stories could be categorized as early horror fiction or Victorian Gothic fiction, but the work also touches on mythology, fantasy, mystery, science fiction and romance. Lovecraft created a new brand of horror, discarding ghosts and witches and instead unleashing nightmarish fiends to whom mankind is a hapless tiny spot of dwindling sanity in a malevolent universe. 7 best short stories by H.P. Lovecraft is a selection chosen by the critic August Nemo, that reveals the mesmerizing narrative style of the visionary american writer. M. R. James redefined the ghost story by abandoning many of the formal Gothic clichés and using more realistic contemporary settings. H.P. Lovecraft was a fan, and wrote a review on his work: "...gifted with an almost diabolic power of calling horror by gentle steps from the midst of prosaic daily life." he says, also adding: " Dr. James has, it is clear, an intelligent and scientific knowledge of human nerves and feelings; and knows just how to apportion statement, imagery, and subtle suggestions in order to secure the best results with his readers." The critic Augst Nemo selected seven short stories for you to enter the gloomy world of M. R. James. This is one of many books in the series 3 Books To Know.

The Bones Are Calling Book Review:

She has blood on her hands. And no memory of how it got there. Former criminal lawyer Siya Rajput's father disappeared seventeen years back. There has not been a single lead in his disappearance. Until now. While following up on a shocking new clue, Siya suffers from a blackout and wakes up drenched in blood with no recollection of what happened. There’s a body of a woman in the boot of her car. At the other end of town, Senior Inspector Kapil Rathod is called in to investigate a triple homicide. The murders pose a lot of questions—the answers to which may have a connection to Siya's father. Siya and Rathod are up to their necks in a dangerous web of deceit and treachery. They cannot trust anyone, especially not the police. Is Siya's father the great man she thinks he was? After all, love can cloud anyone's judgment. What Siya will find can destroy her…not unless it kills her first. Emotions and suspense brim in this heart-stopping mystery set in atmospheric India. Fans of Karin Slaughter, Lisa Gardner and James Patterson should meet Siya Rajput.
