FEBRUARY WRAP UP|2019

I haven’t been able to upload this earlier due to my lack of motivation and social isolation. I have been working on my mental health and hope to be more present. Till then here’s the books I read in February. 🙂

 


 

1. Landline by Rainbow Rowell

An older couple struggling with their marriage gets a second chance through a magic telephone. A telephone through which Georgie could call Neal 15 years back. I absolutely adored and devoured this book. The dynamics of the relationship between Georgie and Neal, and how they play out and evolve is so real and fulfilling. It’s very heartwarming and I’ve already added it to my list of “The Best Books I’ve Ever Read”. Continue reading “FEBRUARY WRAP UP|2019”

MINI REVIEWS OF 2 KASIE WEST NOVELS|2 IN 1 BOOK REVIEW

Kasie West is an author I got introduced to in 2018. So far I’ve read 2 novel of hers and 1 short story. Here are the mini reviews of the 2 novels I’ve read of hers.

1. By Your Side: It was just a fine read for me. Though the characters were gorgeous and charming, the plot was unnecessarily complicated. I did not like how West tried to tackle the love triangle. What she tried, required a thorough exploration of emotions and that was not done. It was a fluffy YA and should have been kept at just that! I don’t like things done half way. Like if you want to do a chick lit, ace that. Don’t try to throw in some complications just for the sake of some brownie critic points! Specially if you can’t do justice to that!

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Coming-of-Age

Publication Date: November 10, 2018

Publisher: Bloomsbury India

Naina is back from America, after four years of living on her own. A natural rebel, she has had some fairly life-altering experiences which Mum and Dad would not approve of at all if they get to know. But will her spirit and her stand be enough to fight the forces of parental pressure and heckling aunties baying for her nuptials?
Back in the bosom of her conservative family, Naina cannot even begin to imagine the turn her life is going to take. It’s wedding season, and she must now be married. Because every self-respecting upper-middle-class family in India do that, right? Marriage at the ‘right age’ to the ‘right family’…whether she likes it or not.

Down The TBR Hole #2

Down The TBR Hole was created by Lost in a Story to help you tackle your Goodreads To-Be Read Shelf. Basically, we revisit our Goodreads TBR, select 5 or more titles chronologically and decide on whether to keep it or get rid of it. I was inspired by Melanie and Amy to start this series on my blog.

How it works:
➽ Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
➽ Order on ascending date added.
➽ Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
➽ Read the synopses of the books
➽ Decide: keep it or should it go?


So let’s get to the next 5 oldest books on my TBR.

1. Not Quite Dating (Not Quite #1) by Catherine Bybee: The blurb sounded good once upon a time. Doesn’t interest me anymore.

VERDICT: DELETE❌

2. Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling: All the hype and praises make me want to give this book a try. Guess I’ll read an audio book of this before the year ends.

VERDICT: KEEP✔

3. The Selection(The Selection #1) by Kiera Cass: Just don’t feel like reading it anymore! Also, it being quite a lengthy series is not helping!

VERDICT: DELETE❌

4. Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella: Have heard such great things about this book from Somya and Damyanti and have been meaning to read this since! Seems quite fun and fluffy.

VERDICT: KEEP✔

5. Dilemmas of Desire: Teenage Girls Talk about Sexuality by Deborah L. Tolman: This book offers a look into adolescent sexuality and that very thing seems really important. I really want to read it but it’s insanely costly in my country. I guess I’ll keep it nd keep looking, if I get to buy it someday.

VERDICT: KEEP✔


So this is my list for the week. Let me know if any of it is in your TBR too or if you have already read any of these!💞
