Story of four friends Ravinder, Amardeep, Manpreet, Harprit.

10 Years back when they met on their first reunion they talked about their marriage, and now after getting married everyone realised that non of them had the fun of the bachelor party, and planned for the reunion in Europe and named it as 'Belated Bachelor Party'.

I laughed like an idiot while reading this book and enjoyed reading this book, there are many moments presents in this book which too funny. 

The moment where Ravinder and Amardeep visited the Czech Republic Embasy situated in Delhi and how they lied to the lady officer to get their visa easily and early, and the reason they describe to the officer to get their visa was too funny they, and they used the same reason to get on the flight when their flight got cancelled, and how they had sweet fight to travel in business class and they tossed the coin to decide.

There are many more funny moments present in this book after they met in Prague, and how They are stuck in the no-man's land between Croatia and Slovenia, without valid visas, but with banned party drugs and a rifle cartridges.

This book gives you the best example of friendship, and friends are very important in life, and you can't live without abusing those lovely friends 😂😂.
P.s. I can't digest my food without abusing my friends 😅 😂. .

Thank you, HarperCollins India for the review copy.

Review - Let's Hope for the Best by Carolina Setterwall

Title -  Let's Hope for the Best

Author - Carolina Setterwall

Translated by - Elizabeth Clark Wessel

Publisher -  Bloomsbury

Pages - 380


The last night, I fall asleep believing we have thousands of days ahead of us. We don't. This night is our last night.

One evening, Carolina says good night to her partner, Aksel. Things have been tough for both of them recently, especially with an eight-month-old son to raise. So when Aksel dies unexpectedly in the night, Carolina's world is turned upside down.

Based on the author's own experiences, Let's Hope for the Best details the small moments of life before and after tragedy. It's a story about motherhood, family and the difficulties of loving someone who is distant, and then who is gone. Brave and unsparing, packed with emotion and humanity, it is about how the life we envisage for ourselves can be altered in an instant.

What if one moment changed everything you've ever known?

Summary: one morning when new mother Carolina wakes up beside her son and enters to wake her husband Aksel and finds him dead.


Carolina’s partner Aksel dies suddenly due to cardiac arrest, Carolina is devastated. leaving her the single parent of a baby. 
She now has to re-invent herself and learn to keep on living without him.
The Book takes us through the trajectory of Carolina’s loss, and her life after it. 
She is very self-analytical and brutally honest about her own shortcomings.

The first part of the book is about both the hours and days after the death and about how Carolina and her husband met, fell in love, moved together and got children. It is a wise approach to revive widespread events with early love.

The second part of the book is about two years after Aksel's (Carolina's Husband) death, and how Carolina is trying to find back. 

The book is slow but amazing author tried to present each every detail to make this book beautiful.

Thank you, Bloomsbury India  for the Advance Review copy.

Review - Game Changer by Shahid Afridi & Wajahat S. Khan

Title - Game Change

Author - Shahid Afridi & Wajahat S. Khan

Publisher - HarperCollins 

Pages - 252

Blurb: Game Changer is the riveting memoir of Shahid Afridi, one of modern cricket's most controversial and accomplished practitioners. In 1996, as a teenager, Afridi shot to fame after hammering the fastest ODI century at the time. One of the world's greatest all-rounders, today, he holds the distinction of having hit the most number of sixes in the history of ODI cricket scooping the most wickets in T20s and winning the most player-of-the match awards in the same format. From his humble beginnings in the mountains of Pakistan's unruly northwest to the mean streets of Karachi and the county parks of southern England, Afridi tells his life story just the way he bats - instinctively, candidly and with no holds barred. In a career as unpredictable as his leg-break googlies and 'boom-boom' power hitting, Afridi has been many things - the lost kid focused on pulling his parents out of poverty, the desperate captain trying not to snitch on his corrupt teammates, the gallant Pashtun centurion staring down a hostile Indian crowd, and the bad boy at the centre of a ball-tampering scandal. In Game Changer, he sets the record straight once and for all. A must-read not only for his legion of fans across the world but also for those interested in cricket and Pakistan's future.

Review: Game Changer by Shahid Afridi with Wajahat S. Khan The book starts with the foreword by Wasim Akram how he found new talent in Pakistan in Pakistan Cricket Board in the form of Shahid Afridi a young guy. 
When the selectors weren't sure about his ability Wasim supported him and stood for him and his valuable talent, and Helped him to boost his confidence level in every possible way.

In this book, Shahid Afridi has spoken about his whole journey how he started and how he improved.
The book has a very amusing incident and sad incident too when Shahid faced a massive problem his name got involved In the controversies, spot-fixing scandals, politics and rivalries around the dressing room and many more.
How he prepared himself to recover from these incidents. He also speaks about the game India vs Pakistan with all the true facts which are relatable. How he worked hard towards his team and gave his best for PCB.

You will also read about his journey from Street Cricket to International Cricket and his obsession with cricket.

Every cricket fan should read this Autobiography to learn many things which may help you in life.
