Usually, we end up buying books that others recommend to us. Rarely do we browse through synopsis of books and pick books that interest us. I recently shopped for books by just choosing ones that interested me, without checking the reviews online. None of these books were recommended by any of the book reviewers out there. So these are some books I chose myself and I have a feeling I will love all these. I did a similar haul back in Jan which you can find here – Nonfiction book haul.
This time I ended up buying these books – Continue reading
October was a good reading month for me as I read 6 novels. One of these books was in audiobook format and the rest were physical books. I had two 5 star reads which rarely happens in a single month. Two books got 4 stars and one book got two stars. So only one book in October disappointed me.
I finally finished Dracula after wanting to read it from a long time. I was pretty sure this book would scare the hell out of me and would give me nightmares which was the reason for keeping it as a Halloween read but I couldn’t be more wrong. This book did not scare me one bit.
September was an okay reading month. I read 4 and a half full length novels and 3 comic books/graphic novels in September. Some of these books got 4 stars while some got as low as 2 stars. Most favorite book read in September has to be Heartless (if I do not count rereads). Continue reading
I am listening to Heartless by Marissa Meyer and I am enjoying that book so much, mostly because it is making me nostalgic about Alice in Wonderland. I love Alice in Wonderland and it is one of my most favorite books of all time. I am planning to reread the book soon and that was when I thought of making a list of my favorite books so that I can make time to read these books again soon.
The following are my most favorite books of all time. These are books that have been my favorites from a long time and have stood the test of time. Some of these I have reread and some of these have been only read once. The plan is to reread the ones that I have only read once.
I am posting my august wrap up quite early since I will be flying to Hawaii next week and I don’t think I will get to finish any more books this month. I mostly read tiny books or books with hardly any text this month, just because I wanted the satisfaction of finishing a book, even though I did not have enough time to read. I wanted something quick that I could finish in a hour or so and that’s how ended up reading these short books or comic books.
But still I managed to finish 2 full length novels – one on audiobook and one physical book and a play – all of which got 5 stars from my side. It was a great reading month as I loved most of the books I read, which rarely happens.
