Reasons to add this book to your TBR

Being a sucker for realism and practicality I always felt an instant liking for non-fiction books, but after Awakened changed my perspective. Characters were so much relatable to day to day life and the author had executed this masterpiece so well. This book will remind you of Twilight or other protagonists with superpowers. If you are a fiction lover this book won’t let you down in any way.
