May 2021 Reads

I read a mixed bag of books this month. I managed to read four books which has been my monthly target for this year. I hoped to do better in the lockdown but binge watching came in the way (argh). Here’s what I read in May – A Thousand Ships by Natalie Hayes This is…

April 2021 Reads + Book Review

This is going to be a short post considering I barely read anything this month. With everything that happened this month, reading was extremely low on my list of to-do activities. I instead chose to spend my free time watching re-runs of comfort shows like Gilmore Girls, Modern Family and The Middle. If you’re wondering…

Book Review | Circe By Madeline Miller

‘Circe‘ by Madeline Miller is my second read for this month. After reading ‘The Song of Achilles’ I had this crazy urge to read everything Madeline has ever written. A lot of you, also, recommended the book in my review post of ‘The Song of Achilles’ . And so with really high expectations, I sat…

Book Review| The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

These are books from across genres that moved me or thrilled me beyond my imagination. These aren’t unknown books (since the authors are known ones) but in my opinion they deserved a…

My Audible To-Be-Heard List

In the past I have found it hard to move to newer technologies to read books. From PDF versions on mobile screens (ah, those Torrent days) to Kindle to audio books – my transition to each has been extremely slow. I LOVE physical books. They have a way of easily transporting me to the fictional…

Review| My November Reads

This month was so perfect for snuggling in and reading but instead I snuggled in and binged watched shows. I only managed to read 2.5 books which I wouldn’t have considered bad if I would have read every single day. I took long breaks between the books. I’m not going to include the half book…
