Trail of Lightning: Book Review

I read Trail of Lightning this month as part of the readalong hosted by Wyrd and Wonder hosts. I could not read along with others and could not discuss the book on the dates chosen by the hosts. I knew this month was going to be hectic at work, so I sped through the book in the beginning of this month when I had some free time. I have been too busy with a new project at work and have been unable to blog. I will not be able to blog much for the next couple of months I guess. This is the only book I have read so far from my fantasy TBR. But I am glad I was able to finish at least one book.

March Reading Wrap Up

I did not blog much in March and it was a pretty hectic month in general. Everyone at home fell sick with some viral infection and that wasted a lot of time. But the good thing is that I got more time to read because of sick days. I read a total of 5 books and 2 tiny books which I read to my son in March. It was a great reading month as most of the books I read were 5 star reads.

Giovanni’s Room : Book Review

After two months of mostly reading non-fiction, I picked up Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin at the end of February. I wanted to read this book for a long time and Feb being Black History Month, I wanted to read something by a black author. I am so glad I picked this book as it is now one of my all-time favorite reads and the best read of 2019 so far. This book was amazing and I have now found a new favorite author.

Feb 2019 Wrap Up

Feb was an okay month in terms of reading. I was in a fiction reading slump 🙂 I wanted to read more non-fiction for some reason. I only read one fantasy book in feb and everything else was non-fiction. I mostly read books on minimalism, productivity and food science. I read a total of 6 books.

These are the books I read in Feb –

Minimalism : Part 2 (Organize)

If you have not already read my earlier post on Minimalism, please read it here. In my previous post on this topic, I talk about the books that got me into minimalism and what I learnt from each of those books.

From last few years, I have been trying to downsize my belongings and trying actively to buy less. I have not been completely successful but I am heading in the right direction. I cleaned all the rooms and got rid of all the junk at home last year. Having gotten rid of everything that was not bringing me joy, I am now mostly left with stuff that bring me joy.

Jan 2019 Wrap Up

2019 has been a hectic year and I have not been able to read the books that I had planned to read. Instead, I am reading books that were not even part of my TBR. I saw the Marie Kondo show and Salt Fat Acid Heat show and suddenly got inspired to do some organization of home and kitchen. I read a total of 9 books in Jan, but most of them were non-fiction and small sized books.
