June Reads!

June was supposed to be the month where I barely read, or barely finish at least one book. Contrary to my assumptions, these are the following books that I read I June and I am pretty sure you can judge me for reasons to follow!

I am into mythical reads and the retelling of the Mahabharata from Kunti’s point of view was not only poetic but also so very enchanting. Initially, this was the plan, to finish the above book and go back to studying for the exams. What I did, instead, was this:

I kept telling myself that I am studying for the exams but I got bored and so I only thought of, I repeat only thought of scraping through the pages of this:

I ended up finishing this too.🤓🤐

And this was lying at my table for so long that I took pity on it and picked it up next. Now, the pity went too far, for I finished this midway of June.Now, really Moushmi you need to study for exams. And so I did. But the papers could ask you anything from fiction, non-fiction, dystopian. And so the next book knocks on the door, makes the puppy face and allures me. Okay, of cfurse they can ask me anything from this book too so why ever not. And hence my last book:

And after this exam fever really came soaring by and I fell into his arms, callously. And now with everything over I keep thinking “Oh Lord, what have I done!!”

    1. Thanks for not judging me ESP. I am alwasy worried about your judments on me, you know. The one who is readng MOby Dick.
      The poems by Bronte were realy good, some very. very dark, but good. After a point of time they did get a little dull or rather I got a hang of her poetry writing and just knew what was coming next.
      That picture is taken on my desk in front of a painting which I ADORE!

      1. Oh c’mon you shouldn’t worry, you are both a good writer and a reader. Just because I am trying to read Moby Dick doesn’t make me brighter 😀
        As for Bronte, you must have read my review of WH and I have been curious about her poetry. Dark poetry, like any genre gets monotonous if overdone, so I agree with you there. What is the July list?

      2. Who said anything abput being brighter. 😛
        Courageous may be, for it is a trying read.
        Well, July list? I don’t know. I have been so keen on reading so far that I finished all the quick or short reads and now all I am left with is so-so-sooo lengthy books that I have to really think where to start..
        Moby dick, may be?

      3. Oh ..not bright? and a courageous with a maybe? you break my heart! but not my determination which itches to give unsolicited advice 😀
        Advice: Don’t read lengthy books with a completion date in mind, it takes out all the charm.
        If you are asking me if I recommend Moby Dick, then no, not yet. I have to finish it before I am bright enough to recommend.

      4. Yes thought so. I think this book is like the weekday morning coffee sips, needs to be sipped..slowly..over many weekdays. I haven’t made any progress after chapter 29, so dont go by my theories.

Your perception holds importance for me.
