Monthly Wrap-Up: January 2018
Hello Book Lovers! I hope you all had a great first month of the year. Without much chit-chat I would like to wrap up January month in express speed so that I could start focusing on February. This month was good and finished all the books that I thought would read in January. Just 1 book behind. But I will finish it in Feb so no big deal. At least better than 2 or 3 books behind.
What I read this month-
Review: The Last Chai: Bringing the Nation to a Halt by Varun T.
It was creative Indian political thriller. It was kind of sequel but definitely can be read as standalone. I can’t wait to read the sequel of this book.
Review: My Sweet Friend by H.A. Leuschel
I just loved this Psychological Fiction about compulsive liar and manipulator. Original plot, unique and creative characters.
Review: Kartikeya: The Destroyer’s Son by Anuja Chandramouli
This was my third Indian Mythological Fiction by Anuja Chandramouli. It was well thought and well researched life story of God Kartikeya.
Review: Watch Me by Jody Gehrman
Very engaging dark Psychological thriller. It was so creepy and scary.
Review: The Second Cup by Sarah Marie Graye #BlogTour @SarahMarieGraye @rararesources
The Second Cup was different unique Women and Literary Fiction. I liked the main theme of the book, depression, death and suffering. Very creatively written characters and their development.
Review: Louder Than a Whisper: Clearer Than a Bell by Renée Paule
Louder Than a Whisper was wisely written inspirational, motivational, philosophical Self-Help book by an amazing writer and a person, Renee Paule. I can’t recommend this book enough. There’s something for everyone.
Review: Rani Padmavati: The Burning Queen by Anuja Chandramouli
Gorgeously written epic Historical tale of queen Padmavati, with amazing characters’s thoughts and descriptions.
Review: Joshua N’Gon:Last Prince of Alkebulahn by Anthony Hewitt @NeverlandBT #Blogtour #Giveaway
Stars: 3.75(that sums 4)/5
Hard Science-fiction novel with high-tech gadgets and talks. Liked overall concept and diverse characters but felt something missing in the book.
I also finished reading–
I will post review on this book tomorrow.
