Monthly Wrap-up | July 2017

monthly-wrap-up-july-2017

Ahh.. so July just finished! I don’t understand how the time flies by. It was literally like the first day of July yesterday and there was my birthday and now it’s finished? But overall, this month was good enough for me and here I am concluding my monthly recap for the month of July, on last day 🙂 This is not just an update of my bookish things, rather a complete package including non-bookish things too.

#DoubleReview | Disney Beauty and the Beast Series

Duology Review - Disney Beauty and the Beast

Since this was a short series, I decided to do a #DoubleReview. I should tell you that this was my first ever Manga.. like ever. Obviously I didn’t knew beforehand about manga so I had some trouble reading it at first. But after some research, I was on track, and oh boy it was exactly as the movie (minus songs and detailed graphics). Yes, this is an adaptation of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast movie which was released recently starring Emma Watson.

Book Review | The THC: Under a Gibbous Moon by Manoj V Jain

The THC: Under a Gibbous Moon by Manoj V. Jain | Book Review

I won this book in a giveaway so I had no idea what this book was about (Yes I just enter randomly sometimes 😛 ). I just saw the opportunity to grab the book and I did. But the main reason why I decided to enter the giveaway in the first place was its title. Don’t you think the title is different and suspenseful? Well, the THC stands for The Holistic Center. It’s a fictional center setup in the story where the broken hearts are cured, those looking for closure get insights and return to the world with repaired soul.

Welcome to my first Sunday Travel post! I am having too much fun while writing this and I hope that you too feel the same while reading this.
** Please note: All the pictures used here are my own except the airport ones.
So, it was my birthday on 14th of July. My hubby is in Bengaluru currently for few months, because of some office work. Since he was not able to come to Pune that weekend so I decided to travel there instead (you know, never miss a chance to travel a new place 😉 ).  Hubby had already made plans to visit Mysore on the weekend, so I was excited as I had heard some great things about it and how it is an important historical place.

Book Review: Wonder by R.J. Palacio | Simple, loving and truly wonderful

Wonder by R.J. Palacio

Before starting this book, I had heard so many great things about it. I never heard anything bad about this, so obviously my expectations were high about this. And yes, it didn’t disappoint me. In fact, it was way too good for my imagination. There are some stories which touch you deeply, and surely it was one of them. This is a story about 11 years old August Pullman who doesn’t have a normal face. He has a rare medical facial deformity, which he refers to as “mandibulofacial dysostosis”, more commonly known as Treacher Collins syndrome and a cleft palate. After his birth, he went through multiple operations on his face to look like what he was now.

Book Review: Animal Farm by George Orwell | A must read classic

Animal Farm by George Orwell

Before starting this book, I knew that it is about Russian revolution, about which I know nothing. But, I didn’t even tried to know about it and was just relied on the book itself. I believed that being a classic and of a different era, it will be difficult to read and understand, but to my contrary believe, it was funny, entertaining and a perfect satire. I really enjoyed the overall journey of Manor Farm becoming the Animal Farm and then converting back to the Manor Farm. The story is about a farm where all the animals took over the farm by pushing out the farm’s owner……
