I’ve been reading going quite steady with my reading and have even found a way to beat around readers block most times. I have read more good books and anyone who loves reading would know how much pleasure that can trigger.
This month, I have had the biggest haul for the year, thanks to the husband for quipping in to do some book shopping for me. As a result I have a to-read list that has me excited and frustrated at the same time. Excited because I have so much to read. Frustrated because I can’t read them all at once. Can someone offer me a super power deal maybe? 😉
Without much adieu, let me share my haul with you.
1. THE MESSENGER BY MARKUS ZUSAKThe Book Thief was one of the best books I have read in recent times. My lingering feelings for it made me pick up (this) another Marcus Zusak book.
2. EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING BY NICOLA YOON
This was spontaneous purchase since it was in the best-selling group and had a really pretty cover. I loved this one and I would totally recommend picking it up next time you’re book hunting.
3. ONE NIGHT @ THE CALL CENTRE BY CHETAN BHAGAT
Still not the biggest fan of his writing style but after reading his newest novel, ‘One Indian Girl’ I really wanted to explore more of his work. He has a funny way of making you relate to his characters.
4. PROMISES, PROMISES BY ERICA JAMES
It’s a long book and its filled with clichés but I like am all about happy endings so I sat through it.
5. ITS NOT FOREVER ITS NOT LOVE BY DURJOY DATTA AND NIKITA SINGH
6. OUR IMPOSSIBLE LOVE BY DURJOY DATTA
I have tried to discover and foray further into the world of books. These books are tiny steps. I wonder how Durjoy datta books are?
7. LOVE STORY BY ERICH SEGAL
It’s the shortest and cutest story I have ever read!
8. WINGS OF FIRE: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY
This one is to satisfy the hidden nerd in me 😀
9. MIDNIGHTS CHILDREN BY SALMAN RUSHDIE
I have heard way too much sound about Salman Rushdie books so I really want to find out for myself what its all about. Has anyone read any of his work? Whats your opinion?
10. INTERPRETER OF MALADIES BY JHUMPA LAHIRI
Jhumpa Lahiri is a genius. A fact I discovered while reading her latest book, ‘In Other Words’. She made me have a totally new perspective on reading , writing and even travelling to a certain extent. Somewhere in my head we are best friends and we share a pizza in some corner restaurant in the streets of room talking some seriously deep stuff 😉
11. THE SECRET HISTORY BY DONNA TARTT
I am dying to read this one. Its one of those books I knew I had to read.
12. BIG LITTLE LIES BY LIANE MORIARTY
I just finished reading this book a few days back. I wonder if the tv show is worth getting addicted? Let me know if you follow it and what you thought of it?
I am still only 4 books down from this haul and with Ramadan my reading pace has reduced but hopefully I shall be back in pace in full swing next month.
Have you read any of this books? Thought? Also book recommendations are forever welcome 🙂
Hope you enjoyed this post! Xx
