July Book Haul

July Book Haul

I have a TBR of a few books and a half read book from my last haul yet I just really wanted to go out and get a few more books. The thing is I like ready what I would like to call as ‘heavy’ books both in mass and plot/writing style yet I really need to change things up and read a light or gripping book so I can keep reading without getting all lazy about it.

This month I found 2 books I have eyed for a while and 2 just because they looked interesting.

Here are they:

  1. How To Be A Bawse By Lilly Singh

Having followed her on YouTube since my days in university, when Superwoman decided to write a book I needed it in my life. It took me awhile to get my hands on it because most places don’t ship to where I live and finding a place that did was taking forever. Finally last week I saw it at a local bookshop, and id I am not wrong I fetched the last copy they had. Are you a Superwoman fan? Did you buy this book? Did you like it? Do you like non-fiction in general?

2. The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

I’ve read Big Little Lies by the same author and realized that I loved her way of story-telling. Its domesticated, filled with emotions, imperfections yet does not go so deep that she scars you. When I saw she had another book I needed to have it.

On the other hand, my husband keeps wondering what on earth I am reading. 😀

3. Manuscript Found in Acca By Paulo Coelho

Another one of his books because I love them!

4. The Secret by  Katerina Diamond

It seems to be a crime/thriller and the reviews looked good. 🙂

That was my book haul this month. What are you reading currently?

My longest TBR ever| May Book Haul

My longest TBR ever| May Book Haul

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

January 2017 Book Haul

January 2017 Book Haul

As we close in on January I wanted to share with you guys my first book haul for this year. I’m very excited about it and can’t wait to read them all. It was a satisfying haul. Awhile back I had asked you guys on Instagram for some recommendation on books to read(you can still leave them for me in the comments. Love you thanks) which I have carefully noted away in my must-buy list. The thing is where I live I just don’t find all the books at my disposal, sometimes it takes some searching to find a place that sells them,

I got myself 4 books during my last eventful trip to the bookstore and I am soo looking forward to reading them all. How I wish i could read all 4 at once *EEEK**img_6363

The first one that i went in for was ‘THE CHEMIST’ by Stephenie Meyer. I really enjoyed the Twilight series(I was in 8th grade, don’t judge) and although I never read THE HOST(I’m not the alien story kinda person) I really felt this one was up my alley. I am currently mid-reading this.

The next i picked up was something I was eyeing for awhile and heard such good reviews of. Also I have this inclination towards non-fiction because I want to know how some people did what they did. If there’s something life’s taught is that real life is that movies and fiction are based on it more than we would like to believe. I picked up ‘I AM MALALA’. Has anyone read it? Let me know how you liked it?

One regret I have is not enough reading classics as a child to a point of embarrassment that I intend to change that. Therefore I picked up this Jane Austen Volume II which comprises of three books; ‘Sense and sensibility’, ‘Emma’ and ‘Northanger Abbey’. I haven’t sadly read all three so cant wait to get to that.

The last one I picked up was ‘THE BOOK THIEF’ by Marcus Zusak. I spotted this randomly at the bookstore, had a strong intuition that it’d be a good one and bought it home with me. I haven’t watched the movie but if I do end up loving the book I might just catch up with the movie and ruin it for myself 😉

Have you read any of the book? Did you like it? What are you currently reading?

I am gonna go back under my blanket and start catching up with these books until then in the hot scorching tropical weather 😛

Have a great week guys!Xx

Book Haul

Book Haul

I don’t make new year resolutions mostly because I never stick to them and the other being I just can’t be bothered sitting down and thinking of resolutions. I don’t know about others but as you grow older its just so hard to pinpoint the changes you want in life. Life aint that black and white right. Also change is the only constant in life and you don’t need a new year to do that. Said that I do make resolutions for myself throughout the year and I usually stick to those because they mostly have a reason behind it rather than having a resolution for the sake of it.

After graduation I made myself a promise to read more because I use to read a lot as a child and the 3 years in university was just too busy for me to sit down with a book while sipping coffee.I mean I would rather take a nap instead, you know the drill. In fact I made myself so many promises to do stuff that I did not have the time to do while in Uni or before that have been fun doing but that will be a topic for an entirely different post.

Anyways I got a few new books that I look forward to reading soon that I thought of sharing with you guys.img_6389

During my last two years in high school (GCE A levels) I got quite into reading non-fiction books and I resumed to explore that genre mid last year. I loved reading #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso therefore I picked up two ,according to the internet very similar books, virtually into an Amazon Cart and got it shipped to me.

Bossy Pants‘ by Tina Fey and ‘Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?(and other concerns)’ by Mindy Kaling have been two books I have been really excited about and I really cannot wait to read them both. I would probably start off this year with one of these two and it is so hard to choose which one.

The second part to ‘Devil Wears Prada‘ is out and is aptly called ‘Revenge Wears Prada’ so when I saw this at my favorite book store in Japan I couldn’t resist but pick it up. I think I was in like 9th or 10th grade when I read the first part. The book starts off ’10 years later’ and I really can’t believe its been that long.

Have you read any of these books? How did you like it? Also I would love some good book recommendation from you all. :*

Happy Sunday! 😀
