Author - Ahmed Faiyaz

Publisher - Rupa Publication

Pages - 196

Blurb: Akshay Saxena, an out of work editor of a defunct literary magazine in the UK, is told to move to India for a year to help shore up the value of Kalim, an ailing Indian publisher.

Angus Lee, the new owner of Thomson Lee Books, wants at least five bestsellers in the coming year, failing which the business would be wound up. He has to find a way of making a success out of books he would never publish or would never even read. To complicate things further, he has to contend with motley crew of has-beens and misfits working for the publishing house as well as wannabe writers, dealing with their follies and derisive tactics, and battle his own affections for Zorah Kalim, the impulsive daughter of his former boss. Will he succeed in bringing out that one ‘bestseller’ from his publishing house? And what about his own life and love in office? Find out in this riveting read.

Review: I always wanted to know about the publishing companies how they work on every single book. how they convert the raw manuscript into a book with attractive covers. and fond many things in this amazing book "Bestseller by Ahmed Faiyaz"
The story starts with a dramatic way like a movie where a protagonist is in Taxi and having a small conversation with a taxi driver.
The story is about Akshay and Zorah, Where Akshay got terminated from his job in the UK and he flew to India in a search of a job in Kalim Publications a company which is about to shut down. Zorah a daughter of the owner of Kalim Publication.
Mr. Kalim an owner of Kalim Publications got a heart attack and he passed away after having a discussion with Akshay about their work. and Akshay took all the responsibilities on his shoulder to run Kalim Publications, and Zorah also joins the team of Kalim Publication.
Author has done a fantastic job. and did the justice to each and every character. the writing style is also good it keeps you engaged.

Will Akshay manages to run Kalim Publications? the question remains the same until you pick this books in your lovely hand and find out the answer.

Review - The Search Within by Anubhav Shrivastava

The book is provided by Arudha Club in exchange for a genuine review. 

Title: The Search Within

Author: Anubhav Shrivastava

Publisher: Write India 

Pages: 102

            Our lives are but a memorandum of the greatest moments that define us. While some get colored in shades of triumph and happiness, others find meaning in despair and woe. 
It is in them, and through various emotions of love, longing, heartbreak, estrangement and soul-searching we encounter along the way, that we finally find ourselves. Rarely do we revisit those forgotten lanes of the heart and dwell in the warmth of their solemnity. 
The Search Within is an extremely personal collection of poems by Anubhav Shrivastava that promises to ring hard on the deepest chords of the heart and pay homage to the gift called Life. 

             The book comes with the well-designed book cover. this is the third book in a row by Anubhav I Had read so far previous two were a storybook, and this time Anubhav comes with something new which will surely surprise you this time he did magic with his word by presenting a poetry book. this poetry book contains 49 magical poems on various topics. I personally liked 5 poems of this book which are - "Heartless, Maa, Reason to Live, Empty Glasses & Thanks for hurting Me." it doesn't mean that other poems are not a worthy all poems present in this book will surely leave a good impact on readers mind.

I would suggest to all the readers who are reading this review do grab this book and read and share as much as you can.
