Ritika Madaan’s From Dusk to Dawn is a book in which she narrates to us the story of a child abuse survivor, Daniel Thomas. Expect a book that is a rather short read (less than 100 pages). Also, expect a book that is written in a rather simple way but makes up for it with a story that is both gripping and moving.
Expect a book that is a travelogue about the world’s most remote continent – Antarctica. Expect a book that gives you an idea of what Antarctica is really like? how to get there? how much does it really cost? how perilous the journey is? what kind of precautions does one need to take? etc.

A River in Darkness is the memoir of Masaji Ishikawa who is one of the very few lucky people to have escaped the hell hole that is North Korea. I would definitely recommend this book to my readers especially those who love memoirs, who enjoy political reads and are interested in non-fiction.
