Hey Guys.

I have decided to scrap the idea of doing monthly wrap-ups of books as there will be months I read a lot and few dry spells. So, I came up with a new idea… I will post reviews of books once I finish reading five books. I have decided to read 52 books this year and honestly I am not to a great start. But hey, the year is just beginning.

So, here are my five recent reads –

book-wrap-up

As August has finally dawned up on us, I thought it was high time that I posted my May and June book wrap-up. I promise you guys that July book wrap-up will be posted soon and not sometime in September.

Anyways, here are the list of books I managed to read in the months of May and June –

May wasn’t a very good reading month for me. I managed to read only two books and one of them was a graphic novel. But the two books that I did read were nothing short of brilliant.

Hey Guys.

I can’t believe that May is here already. It feels like it was just yesterday that I was saying ‘I can’t believe its April already’. This year has been running very fast and I am struggling to catch up with it.

Catching Up with Friends

In the month of April, I finally found time to catch up with my friends over drinks. Meeting them made me realize …

I am back with yet another book review. This time I am reviewing or rather discussing fourth book from Heroes of Olympus series… The House of Hades by Rick Riordan.

First, let me just get this out of my system and say that I adored this book.

I was so excited to read this book that I couldn’t wait for my physical copy to be delivered and downloaded an e-book to read it ASAP. And like always Rick Riordan hasn’t disappointed me. House of Hades is action packed, emotional, fast paced and a fantastic read.

In my opinion House of …

The moment I came to know that this book was written by JK Rowling my reaction was something close to –

Frankly, would I have picked this novel up if I hadn’t learnt that this was written by JK Rowling? I don’t know. The cover isn’t eye catching and the blurb sounds like run in the mill.

On a cold night famous super model Lula Landry plunges to her death. After initial speculations of murder, the police rule the death as a suicide. But Lula’s brother, John Bristow refuses to accept that his sister, despite all the reports in the …

2012 has been a good reading year for me. I read many amazing books this year. Like everyone on Booktubing community on You Tube, I also wanted to do Top 12 of 2012. But I read 80 books this year, [14 of them are Harry Potter books (yes, I read HP twice this year)] so I found picking 12 from 66 books very difficult so I decided to do Top 15 instead.

This was the book that not only most eagerly anticipated by …
