I have never been so confused before about the rating of a book. I struggled to give this story between 3.5 and 4 stars and eventually settled on the later one because of the unique concept that it portrays. The Marriage Pact is a psychological suspense thriller with an interesting plot. Eventually, in the west, the rate with which the marriages are failing, is pretty high. In such a world, would you be prepared to do anything to make your marriage successful?
Happy Saturday guys!! So this is the last Saturday of the first month of 2018. One month already went! Phew, where does the time go? How is your reading going until now? I had a good start at the year start, as I said in my last STS, but then, I just slowed down 😛 I guess I become lazy. Nevertheless, as a whole the progress is good and I am happy. Also, now I have decided to do STS posts on alternate Saturday. I don’t want to post when I have only 2 books on my list or none. Instead, I want to post a book review on alternate Saturday, because I thought that only one book review on Monday is too less and I have gathered so many reviews but have no slot free. I hope this turns out to be a better idea.
Audiobooks are currently a huge trend in books industry and are quite popular among the readers. Many people argue that it is quite good for multitasking. You can still do many chores while listening to an audiobook. Most of the people utilize it while driving. Though all these scenarios look perfectly fine, I personally find it quite hard to listen to them.
Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is Books I Really Liked but Can’t Remember Anything/Much About. I think I haven’t read that amount of books yet to complete this prompt (as I only began reading last year 🙁 ). So instead, I have yet again decided to pick a prompt from past topics and my chosen prompt is Ten bookish websites and apps I use. Well, creating this list was also not easy, but at last, I completed it 😛 So let’s see what are some of the apps and websites that I use almost daily to track my reading and doing all other bookish stuff.
Rupi Kaur’s first book Milk and Honey was the first modern poetry book that I read and I loved it. That book was a huge success. So when I found out about her new book I instantly pre-ordered it and when it arrived I read it immediately too (yes only the review is late 😛 ). I had really great expectations from this book as well, and I would say that though not AS GOOD AS Milk and Honey, it was quite close to it and I totally enjoyed it (enjoyed in a sad way? ). This collection is an extension to Milk and Honey .
Do you know who is Satya Nadella? If not, then I guess this review is not for you. If yes, then you should definitely read it 🙂 Hit Refresh: The Quest to Rediscover Microsoft’s Soul and Imagine a Better Future for Everyone is Nadella’s and Microsoft’s journey to hit refresh and bring a better future for Microsoft. This book is not for everyone. It is for those who understand technology a bit and are interested in knowing the inner workings of an organization like Microsoft. Not just about Microsoft, you need to learn what a person Satya Nadella is how is reached from a small place in India to where he is today.
Hello friends! Finally, I am presenting my first ever author interview on the blog. Believe me, it was long overdue. Actually, I took this interview last year right after I finished reading The Crowns of Croswald 😛 Those of you who don’t know about this book, I would like to tell you that it was totally magical and was actually one of my favourite reads of 2017. If you are a fan of Harry Potter, then you NEED to read it.
Happy Tuesday guys. Another Tuesday, another Top Ten list. Those who don’t know yet, TTT has been moved to That Artsy Reader Girl from this week. My Photoshop is not working (it has expired 🙁 ) so I was not able to update it in the post image, but I’ll update that info soon.
So, this week’s TTT topic was: Bookish Resolutions/Goals. But I already did a post talking about my bookish resolutions of 2018 so I didn’t feel like repeating it. Instead, I have selected a past topic: My Top Ten Bookish Pet Peeves.
Don’t tell me that this title didn’t attract you. Certainly, it did, isn’t it? 😛 I guess it is the title that attracted me too for requesting it in the first place. I got it actually last year, but I don’t know why I waited so long to read such a small and funny book? So this was really short and I have not that much to say, so I decided to present my second bullet-point review which I have done earlier here. This is really a quick way to write reviews and also help me to tell the actual points clearly. So let’s begin with the review of Breaking Up is Hard To Do 🙂
Happy Saturday guys!! How is 2018 treating you so far? Mine is going good, especially in terms of reading. It’s been just 13 days and I have already finished 4 books, which is my personal best 😛 And guess what, I finished my first ever Agatha Christie book yesterday! And it was, as I was expecting, wonderful. Well more on that later.
