Savvanah comes undone – Denise Hildreth
Rating – 1/10
Super boring. I think I finished it only because I started it. It got a one, only because someone made the effort to gather their thoughts and put it on paper. It seems like protagonist did not learn anything from her experience from the first book, which was actually good. Enough said!

Death benefit – Robin Cook
Rating – 3.5/10
A typical Tobin Cook thriller. Read it if you are a fan. Had the typical story flow of a Robin Cook novel

Secret of the Nagas – Amish
Rating – 6.5/10
The second book in the Meluha series. I was quite excited to read this book, because I loved the first one. This one turned out to be an interesting read, as well. It was a bit longer than the first book, or at least seemed like it was. Perhaps the love story of Parvateshwar and Anandamayi wasn’t as gripping as Shiva and Sati. In any case, the book picked up speed I’m the end revealing the identity of the Naga. A definite read for people who are trying to follow the series.

Capturing Fire – Suzzane Collins
Rating – 8/10
I recently saw the movie ‘The Hunger Games’. I loved the protagonist of the movie and decided to see what the other two books were about. This is a boom which will make you lose your sleep and make sure you complete it. The movie was so very well cast that the characters just carried this book from beginning to end with great √©lan. Kudos to the author for writing a book which you can imagine in front of your eyes. You almost cannot get enough of the second Hunger Games.

Mockingjay – Suzzane Collins
Rating – 6.5/10
Broke my rule of not reading books by the same author, one after the other. I just had to find out how the story of Katniss Everdeen ended. I guess I was disappointed that the hunger games did not feature in them at all. (I was one of the crazy readers who missed Howgwarts in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.) It was a depiction of war time between the districts. (I think it will make for a great movie.) You almost become one with the characters and feel their pain. I am currently reeling from the shock of the war ending and the things the characters had to go through. Definite read to figure out the destination of Katniss and Peeta and Gale and Haymitch.

Any good reads that you can recommend?
