April Reads!

As much as I am shocked that we are already down with four months of the year, I think I may have covered up pretty much last month. Well, I am talking about reading and a little bit of writing. I started with having completed nine read books in January but it fell down to only two in the next months. And as for as writing is concerned it is almost on the same level.

But April, 2019, surprisingly was very productive considering my lackadaisical behaviour which lingers all year long!

When it comes to writing, you all know I am down to 30 poetries in the last month, which for sure might need a lot of editing but at the least it is there! And when it comes to reading, well, I think I have pretty much picked up my pace there too. And April, surprisingly was just AWESOME!

Here are the books that I read, some were really mind-boggling, others were good and yet some were disappointing. I am not doing any reviews here, the reviews are on Goodreads, if you want to find out more.

Find out below my April Reads:


Now this was HILARIOUS, I mean dealing with a serious issue, but still hilarious. You might want to pick it up if you want to read something a little out of the ordinary, despite the ordinariness.


Go ahead, judge me!!


Now this was a little unique. Mystery and demons and magic. Fictitious yet believable.


A simple historical romance, I’d say, but not so simple after all.


Judged again? But honestly, not quite worth it, I mean the book obviously ๐Ÿ˜‰


This was my first with romance and thrill combined, and I was constantly on a roller-coaster ride, trying to find out what the hell happens. Might as well have developed a secret girl crush here.


Okay now some serious reading. (And of course I cannot judge it)


If the book title and the author itself isn’t enough for you to pick the book up, ย then the humour, the mocking and the ideas written should be.


A very short poetry book, and it moves you considering the reality of the tragedy that the poet goes through.


This was my favourite from the month. The fact that that nothing is meaningful and the meaninglessness of life haas always hooked me.




Disappointed. Still wondering if to pick up the second one in the series or not!


I hadn’t expected much off it. However, it proved surprisingly great considering the least popularity of the book. In fact some of the passages delve into ‘life’ so much that its sheer simplicity would shock you. A decent historical fiction with wars, romance and a curse to add flavour to the book.


Only ‘some’ teens would like it. NOT MY CUP OF TEA!!!

Yeah, so 14 books in a month, not bad I guess?

What about you guys? What are you reading, what were you reading? Any recent favourites?

I am pretty sure, you won’t keep a book-addict waiting too long!!

  1. That is amazing Moushmi! Viginia Woolf is one of my favourites and I have found strange similarities with her (which can be scary) but what she writes stays with me and she manages to express what I intend to say.

    And Kafka! Isn’t he mind blowing ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have been trying to concentrate more on reading and that way writing suffers ๐Ÿ˜€ Been reading James Herriot. He is so funny with his quirky veterinary adventures. But even reading is taking a set back as I am trying to learn French ๐Ÿ˜€


  2. Wait a minute…14? …like really??? In a month??? Like really really?????!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ณ my eyes and mouth are stretched wide like a saucer right now…with amazement! ๐Ÿ˜ต
    Wowww….are you human? I always doubted this but now im sure you are not! I guess Marvels dont need to look far for a new superhero now…they have one right here in you…the superwoman….who can pause time, do double the work, can be in multiple places at a time, can multitask, can read like a scanning machine and store like a library….you are a walking library infact! You finished 14 books plus daily a poem you wrote plus read other blogs and commented and replied to comments plus had your own personal work plus probably some rest time (i doubt this one though)….and everything was done perfectly!! really amazing!! Im so impressed!! At the time im so ashamed of my record…i can barely finish a book in a month now….๐Ÿ™ˆ..and im always short of time but im not busy too…itโ€™s a struggle to half complete my todo list or even blog properly! ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ im really amazed by you!! This is for you ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

  3. Out of your book list, my personal favorites are Nietzsche, Kafka, and Virginia Woolf. My mom likes the steamy soap operas. Your voracious reading in April is truly phenomenal. We both love to read. It is a joy and a pleasure.
