May Reads!

May might not have been as fruitful a month as April in terms of reading, but it was fun all the same.


This was the second book in the series, and I am still skeptical about picking up the third one. Though it was better than the first one with more magic and demons but still I am not sure if this is such a great read.



Now, this one was really gripping, in the beginning that is. I went on a roller coaster ride, but then the running got too much, and it became mundane for me. A fair read!

I love the March family, however much goody-good all of it sounds and I was only sorry to end the Little Women series with Jo’s boys.



Wait, so I was missing the March family too much, so I went to this amazing book and read about Mr. March and his life from his point of view. The book discusses in detail what happens when Mr. March is away from his family during the war. And the book is one of the best I have read.



Now, come one who am I to judge this! The writer must be judging me instead murmuring, “What the hell is she doing with my little book?”


This was a very short poetry book and each one shook with different emotions. A quick read dealing with themes of war and death.




Don’t know why I really bothered to even finish this! I just don’t know! DO NOT PICK THIS- I mean my point of view. At least read the reviews before you think of reading this. I thought this was going to be hilarious, but it was disastorous.



Forever waiting forGgodot at the Becket international airport! I think I might just grow old and die at the very same airport!

Well, that’s it for today. Though I am pretty sure my books to be read in June is going to go down drastically. We will see!

How about you guys? Any fascinating book that you are reading?

  1. What a list; not only is that a bunch of books but a nice variety too!

    I recently finished The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. I’m not reading The Voyage of the Basilisk (Memoirs of Lady Trent, #3) by Marie Brennan & The Genius of Birds by Jennifer Ackerman (non-fic). I’m looking forward to June, should be decent reading and writing. Good stuff! Thanks for sharing. 😀

      1. My daughter read the 7 books of Harry Potter in less than 3 months. She averages 30 books a month. Of course she is 9 so her book are not voluminous like ours. I on the other hand make sure I read one book a month 🤪

      3. मेरी क्या हैसियत की आपके शान में ग़ुस्ताख़ी करू। on a serious note I love people who read. I get intellectual connected, for I want to be in that league. But work, personal hobbies,kids, doesn’t leave much time to pursue more reading. 😊

      4. Hahaha, I dread that! Life coming the way of reading!
        But may I suggest a book for your daughter? I mean if she liked Harry Potter, she might like this one too..
        The book of lost things by John Conolly! A friend gave this to me last Christmas, and I loved it. Even you might like this. It’s fictional, though!

      1. Did you not notice the word “supposed” repeatedly? It is only to emphasise the fact thay it is what i am SUPPOSED to be doung. The fact that I am not studying or that I am not going to clear it is very essential to be noticed.
        So much for making you proud! 😅🙄
