Photo Oct 31, 8 52 44 AM (1)

2014, like all years past ever since I started blogging, has been an extraordinary year for reading. I’ve read 62 books total and most of them were amazing reads. Yes, yes, there were a few duds and even some of the worst pieces of literature that I have encountered in my life but the good and the … Continue reading

BOOKLOVE: September 2014

BookLove

I’m feeling a little bit book giddy today, generally happy about the state of literature and about the large number of books that I have yet to read so I’ve decided to write, sooner that I would have, about the books that I got last month. September was a bit crazy overall because there was a … Continue reading

2013: A Year in Reading

2013---A-Year-In-Reading

This is probably my last post for this year (unless the blogging gods send their blessings) and my 80th overall. A nice round number would be a nice way to end this year in blogging (although a nice round number + 1 would be arguably better). Anyway, 2013 is almost at an end and sometimes … Continue reading

Book Review: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

CloudAtlas

“My life amounts to no more than one drop in a limitless ocean. Yet what is any ocean, but a multitude of drops?” – Adam Ewing Proof of the good influence that a book club can have on you is that you will read books that are usually out of your radar. Entering a book … Continue reading

Essential Reading: May 2013

May is here and, okay, I know I haven’t been active in blogging lately but I wouldn’t miss this monthly feature for the world so I will set aside a few minutes of my time to present my reading list for the month of May. But before we proceed, let us not forget the rundown … Continue reading

Essential Reading: April 2013

Essential-Reading

March was an awesome reading month for me. Mostly because I was itching to try Russian authors for quite some time now and also because all of the books that I finished on March were rated with 4 stars or above. Here are the books that I read (or finished reading) last month: Labyrinths by Jorge … Continue reading

Book Lust: January 2013

BookLove

“New year, new books” is now my favorite saying every New Year even if I just made it out of thin air to suit my book hoarding purposes. Anyway, I was doing fine with my new year’s resolution of limiting myself from hoarding books until I visited NBS, Fullybooked, and Booksale. To be fair, some … Continue reading

Essential Reading: January

Well, it’s that time of the month again for my Essential Reading post. Before I begin the list for January, I will just point out that I made some changes to the way that I shall choose books. I will no longer be thematic in my choices and I shall only employ themes every now … Continue reading

Best Reads of 2012

BestReads2012

2012 was really an awesome reading year for me. I have managed to finish 61 books (including graphic novels) which means I exceeded the number of books required for my Goodreads’ 2012 Reading Challenge. All in all, it was a very great reading year. But, of course, some books are better than others and this … Continue reading

Essential Reading: December

Essential-Reading

It’s December, folks, and I have been absent from the blogosphere lately due so I think its time for another post from your favorite book hooligan [citation needed]. What better way to start the month by listing my December reading list and this month’s theme is there is no theme. But before that, let us … Continue reading
