Being Miss Nobody Tamsin Winter

Being Miss Nobody: A Book With Many Lessons For The Youth of Today

I am awed at Tamsin Winter’s ability that how convincingly she has developed the character of Rosalind. Being a socially anxious person myself, I could completely relate to Rosalind’s thoughts and feelings, how at times the words are just sitting at the tip of your mouth but you cannot get then out.

How it Happened by Shazaf Fatima Haider

How it Happened: The Book That Sadly Missed Its Target

The plot is no doubt centered around a very important theme and issue of our society however it is in the characterization where this book fails miserably. This was a story that could have had the power to change the mindset of people who are against love marriages yet it fails to do so because it reads like a high schooler’s point of view.
