Hello Book Lovers! I know I’m little late for this post and I didn’t maintained a proper schedule in last 2 month as I was staying with my family spending more time with them and then visiting relatives in December, reading less and so less post in December. Bad last month of the year! I’m not regretting that lovely time with family but definitely guilty and I’m going to apologize to authors for delay in review.

I’m flying back to my place tomorrow evening so I’m going to make sure in this first month of 2018, I catch up with all prior commitments and  hopefully can finish reading Jan books that I have already marked in my calendar.
