Everyone loves sci-fi with aliens and spaceships. I decided to make a post about some aliens in fiction that I found fascinating. Many books briefly mention aliens and do not spend time explaining what those aliens are like or how these aliens are different from humans. The following are some sci-fi which do significant amount of world-building of aliens and alien planets. Some are scary aliens while some are friendly and helpful to humans.
After binge-reading Deathnote, I was on the lookout for some series which was equally dark and suspenseful. I tried several manga series but didn’t feel like continuing any of those. I visited Kinokuniya bookstore and asked the staff to recommend me some series which was like Deathnote and they recommended Erased to me. They were absolutely right when they said it was like Deathnote.
June was a pretty good reading month for me. I read some books which were on my May TBR and few other books which were not on any of my earlier TBRs. I just picked whatever caught my fancy. I read a total of 9 books but most of them were small in size.
Here are the books that I read in June –
I read more books on organization and minimalism recently and wanted to review them in this post.
Here are the links to my other posts on minimalism:
Minimalism : Part 1 (Reduce)
Minimalism : Part 2 (Organization)
Minimalism: Part 3 (Planning)
Minimalism: Part 4 (Time Management)
When I read books about organization and minimalism, I was mostly focusing about space. It was only when the author in Organization from Inside Out spoke about time did I realize that I need to also organize my calendar. I should minimize time spent on unnecessary activities while focusing more on my long term goals.
I read plenty of books on time management recently and this post will be talking about all such books.
May was a pretty hectic month and I managed to read just 6 small books, out of which one is a graphic novel. Hoping that June would be a better month in terms of reading. Most of the reading happened in the last week of the month.
The books I read are –
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.
