Happy New Year guys! 2018 is finally over and 2019 is here. 2018 has been a great year for me personally as things improved on the career front and I got to make some international trips – UK and Mexico. Life was hectic but eventful. I even got to attend Worldcon this year. Here’s hoping that 2019 will be equally good.
Sci-Fi Month is back this year and I am participating in it, even with a hectic schedule and an upcoming vacation planned. Sci-fi is one of my favorite genres and what better than to celebrate a month reading Sci-fi with fellow fans of this genre.
I am here with a super late wrap up post for May. I read a total of 9 books in May, out of which 4 were graphic novels borrowed from my library.
These are the books that I read in May –
I thought I will wrap up my 2017 with a statistics post. I find these statistics very useful as it helps me understand how my reading year went. This was a great reading year as I read 96 books.
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 have been suffering from reading slump this month for some reason. In general, the political climate in the country is bad and I am stressed out because of various things in personal life too. I haven’t been able to finish a single novel this month as I am not able to concentrate much on anything. In situations like this, dystopian novels come handy. When you think your life is horrible and you read a dystopian novel, you feel your world is much better than the one in the book. At least we don’t have people burning books or killing each other on streets right? 🙂
Here are some dystopian books that I have enjoyed in the past. I love this genre a lot and keep reading books from this genre often.
Time to brag something on my blog. 🙂 Our son is about to complete one year and he has not seen TV. Not just TV, we did not let him watch any videos on phone or iPad as well. Yayy! We resolved to not make him sit in front of TV until he completes one year and we achieved it finally. That means we had to sacrifice TV ourselves.
