If you haven’t read the 1st part, click here to read it !
Ok back to where we were,
I talked about 5 books in my last blog
we have more
6. Harry potter series up till the 4th book
I am just SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO late to read this series that I almost feel like an old granny
I did read it during the COVID closure cause I wanted to binge read a series which is already finished and is trusted by millions
So I picked this series up
And I liked it
But only till the 4th book. After the 4th book (which is The Goblet of Fire), I started losing interest because that is the way I am. It is near to impossible for me to finish any series ’cause I get bored with the plotlines and the characters quite easily.
Same thing happened
One thing I LoOove about Harry Potter is the writing. I mean the writing is BEAUTIFUL, I get it. But there is something about the way it has been written and executed, that it makes me feel cosy whenever I read it. I have heard the same remark from a bunch of other people as well. I dont know how J.K Rowling did it but, hats off, amazing work on creating the world and characters
I give this book a 4 because of the world/atmosphere building and BCZ it deserves it. NO NOSTALGIA ATTACHED
7. Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
This is a graphic novel that I heard a lot of good things about, so I thought of finally reading it this year.
It is basically the life of the author, Marjane Satrapi from when she was 10-11 years old up till she was an adult.
It talks about her life during the Iranian revolution and how her life completely changed in a matter of a few months. How was her life when she wen abroad to study at a young age a stuff like that
The art style isn’t what I would call “beautiful” But it is fair
But the way her life has been portrayed in the form of a story is nice. It is a fun book to read. There are two parts of this book. One ends with her going abroad to study and the other one picks up right from there
So I give this book a 4 as it was a fun read that gave you the insight into the lives of people during that time
8. The Palace Of Illusions by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
I have already done a VERY detailed review of this Book so CLICK HERE to go read it. (make sure you do!!)
9. Karna’s Wife by Kavita Kané
I was really into Mahabharata this year so I read quite a few books about it. One of the books I read was this. This is quite a popular book when it come to Mahabharata fiction books.
I didnt enjoy it as much
I mean it was good but there wasnt much into it
The idea was nice, seeing the Mahabharata through the eyes of a not so very prominent and popular character
The story line lacked that interesting element. Towards the end, I felt as if I just have to finish this book cause it kept dragging.
My final thoughts, I give this a 3 out of 5, because I expected more from such a popular book. But well It was a nice read
10. The Curse Of Gandhari by Aditi Banerjee
I have already done a detialed review of THIS AS WELL
You know the drill
CLICK HERE to read it !!!
11. Bad News by Rob Brotherton
I think I talked about this book in one of my blogs . But I will talk more ’bout it
So it is basically my first non-fic book apart from all those School books and a bit here and there
This book basically tells us how we can be better and smarter consumers of news and about the different things related to digital and print media.
It explains those things through incidents that happened in the past and few examples of experiments conducted to understand the kind of psychology people have towards news
I am not really interested in Non-Fic so it wasn’t necessarily “interesting”
But I am trying to read more and more non fiction books because it is important to know about the real world as well instead of the fiction world
12. The Curse breaker Series by Brigid Kemmerer
I am still reading this series so WAIT FOR THE BOOK REVIEW !!!!
That was for this week
I read these many books this year. I know. They aren’t much, considering people usually read like 40-50 books PER YEAR, but it is a good start
I hope you enjoyed reading. Subscribe to my mailing list to receive weekly updates about my blogs and some extra stuff that I might not write a log about!!
