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!!”

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?

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:

1

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.

2.jpg

Go ahead, judge me!!

3

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

4.jpg

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

5.jpg

Judged again? But honestly, not quite worth it, I mean the book obviously 😉

6.jpg

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.

7.jpg

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

8.png

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

9.jpg

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

10.jpg

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

CUTE! CUTE! CUTE!

12..jpg

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

13.jpg

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.

14.jpg

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!!

 

Reverie.

In living an existence of insanity

A being of absolutely solidarity,

She found solace among inanimate objects

Amidst her life which was completely wrecked.

 

She fell in love with words.

When everyone thought her to be absurd,

She made books her escape mechanism

While her heart screamed abstract expressionism.

 

She fell in love with fantasy

Loathing her reality,

Making her miseries unconscious

She made books her life’s colossus.

 

 

White lies!

IMG-20190322-WA0001.jpg

I hate to lie,

About when I am going to lie.

I tell people that I am definitely tired,

When all I want is my ebooks to be fired.

They think the days toils have left me, arduous,

When in reality, I want to show my love,

Towards whom, I am so much virtuous.

They think they have succeeded,

In ripping me off, of my words and fantasy,

But a little more planning was supposed to be needed,

To have committed such a blasphemy.

But then again, I am happy to lie,

For under the sheets, I get to lie,

Where everyone tends to forgo the white lie.

 

 

Mystery ruin

I miss something today. Somehow I landed up on this thought today and it has occupied my mind since, kept my face smiling, and my heart overwhelmed.

It goes back to my college days where I was surrounded by people with same interests as me. I wouldn’t say all of them were my ‘friends’ but it was good to have them around, discuss things; share matters and have healthy arguments sometimes. All I am talking about is literature, and mostly reading books.

An episode came to my mind today, where I was excitedly talking about a book to a classmate, and she was shushing me constantly, she did not want to hear a word, did not want to know what I thought, what the book was all about, only because she hadn’t read it. And all this while I was enjoying, trying to tell her what actually happens, how the plot unfolds, what exactly was the mystery. She did this to me too when she would read something before me. In fact all of us did this to each other, it was kind of fun, but honestly we would never tell what actually happens. Why ruin the suspense, right? But it was fun to have them around.

I just miss them today, now that I am no longer among such people, in an absolutely different world. It would be good to just try and ruin the suspense for a change.
