Picture Book: FOUNTAIN OF LOVE

Author: Namita Bhaladhare
Pages: 81
Genres: Romance, Picture Book
Published: January 15th 2018
Source: Got a digital copy from the author
My score:
This review will be a bit different than what you're used to from me. I can't review this book like any other book, because it's a picture book with a collection of moments which make you pause and reflect back on turning points in a most intimate relationship.
The book captures the moments of emotional turmoil and weaknesses. It talks about that anxiety, fears and happiness that everyone goes through when they are interacting with other human beings.

Get To Know: 100 Word Horrors: An Anthology of Horror Drabbles

Authors: Kevin J. Kennedy and others
Genre: Horror
Goodreads score: 4.21

I have read a book by Kevin J. Kennedy before. It's called Collected Halloween Horror Shorts: Trick 'r Treat. It was, indeed, a treat to read the book. The short stories were of great quality and I loved to read the book.

This book contains very short stories, only 100 words. It's hard for me to review this book the regular way, but in this blogpost I do want to tell you some things about this book, a book that you'd enjoy if you like the horror genre.

Synopsis
Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy’s most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.

When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station’s wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands.
