I have been overweight and obese from last few years. After my son was born, within just a few months, I lost all my pregnancy weight. But within a year, I gained plenty of extra pounds due to hormonal changes and a more sedentary lifestyle. I even stopped going to supermarkets and started ordering everything from Amazon with an Amazon Prime subscription and from Google shopping express, as it was difficult to take the baby along for shopping. I had zero time for self care or exercise since life was already hectic with a small baby and full time job. On top of that, I had a stressful life, thanks to the horrible team (and manager) that I was a part of. With lack of sleep, stressful life and hardly any exercise, I bloated like a pumpkin.
Today I went to my local library and picked a couple of books that were already on my TBR.
This is what my current TBR for this year looks like. This is not my entire TBR but just a part of it.
Signal to Noise is a magical realism novel written by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.
August was a hectic month as I just came back from my vacation and also attended Worldcon. Because of this, I could not read much. I finished 3 books and most part of the 4th book in august. As you can see, all the 4 books that I read in August belonged to fantasy genre. I am in a major fantasy mood lately and have been only picking up fantasies.
Here are the books that I read in august –
For our next vacation, we have been planning to visit Mexico so I gathered all the books I had on Mexico in my TBR pile.I have been to the west coast of Mexico and this time the plan is to visit the east coast which has Mayan Ruins.
Here the books that I am planning to read before I visit –
I attended my first Worldcon (Worldcon 76) last weekend and it was amazing!
Worldcon, or more formally the World Science Fiction Convention, the annual convention of the World Science Fiction Society (WSFS), is a science fiction convention. It has been held each year since 1939 (except for the years 1942 to 1945, during World War II). The World Science Fiction Society administers and presents the Hugo Awards, the oldest and most noteworthy award for science fiction. (from Wikipedia).
This was the first literary convention I had ever been to and it will definitely not be my last. I hardly have friends in real life who are into reading books, let alone reading SFF books. So it was great to attend a convention full of book nerds and on top of that, those who love the genres that I love reading.
