When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

Ok, I’ll admit, at first I genuinely thought that this was a book that centred around two Indian lesbians meeting each other and falling in love. I was all about that life and it was one of the reasons why I was so excited to read it. Wow, how wrong was I?! If anything, this highlighted my ignorance towards Indian culture as I didn’t realise that Rishi was actually a male name. However, even though I had found out that this was a heterosexual relationship book, I was still intrigued because of the diversity and because the female protagonist is a computer coder!

Fairy Loot Unboxing June 2017

Another month means another amazing box from the Fairy Loot team!

Nemesis by Brendan Reichs

I LOVED this book! It was just… wow… I can’t seem to get my brain together to write this review. I saw this book advertised about a year ago and I had read all of the hype that surrounded it. But when I looked on Amazon to buy it, it was £53 for the Audio CD and £35 for the hardcover. I was beat. But luckily, I waited and Nemesis was finally sent to me from the publisher so for that, I’ll be forever grateful!

City of Saints and Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson

The main part of this novel that stood out to me was that it was set in Congo so I knew that diversity would be very very prominent within the book. With a 90% black cast with a handful of mixed race characters and a couple of white characters as well, this book explores racism, refugees and the war against the militia within Congo and surrounding areas. Whilst all of this is happening, this book also disguises itself as an action-packed thriller/mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

A debut novel set in the Roman Empire and fictionalises the battle between the Romans and the Germans… It sounds epic. It sounds amazing and it sounds bloody. It was definitely bloody.
