Tackling the age-long battle of the science vs. the arts and many other related concepts, Fluid succeeds at answering questions we didn’t even know we had.

Finding Your G-Spot In Life by Geetika Saigal is a self-help book “written for all of us, whether you’re just starting out your life or wishing to change it”.

The Unhealthy Love is everything you’d like from an exciting, fast book. Romance, delight, mystery. It starts with just the right amount of intrigue where you wonder about the characters as they slowly unravel. There is no need to worry about pace or balance since the flow of the story take care of that.

Forsaken by Desire by S. Shekhar is a romance, with the right amount of drama and passion mixed with it. It is gorgeously written – just the right words, the right adjectives, the right dialogues. The romance isn’t too cheesy, and yet it delivers the perfect amount of butterfly-in-the-tummy moments.
