Stacking the Shelves #17

Stacking the Shelves

Happy Saturday guys!! So how was your week? Mine was pretty hectic with all the office stuff but finally, my task is completed 😀 Now I can happily go on vacation for friend’s wedding 🙂 But this month is not good for me in terms of reading. I don’t know why but I am not inclined towards the reading. Maybe because of tensed days? Hopefully, it gets better after I come back 🙂 In spite of not reading much, I collected a few ARCs within the last two weeks (if you remember, I told in my last STS that I would now do the STS post every alternate Saturday). Let’s see what I collected.

Am I Mysterious? Let’s find out with the Mystery Blogger Award

Mystery Blogger Award

So it’s been a long time since I did one of the award posts. Yes, I have got too many probably but I forget to do them always. I was tagged by Chloe @ Book Dragons for The Mystery Blogger Award last month and probably I am not that late for this one, so why not start with this? 😀 Though I don’t think I am that mysterious but let’s see what Chloe has it there for me 🙂

eARC Review | Spin the Golden Light Bulb by Jackie Yeager | A powerful debut!

Spin the Golden Light Bulb by Jackie Yeager

Do you love it when you discover a great read that you haven’t expected in the first place? As much as I hate NetGalley (because of conspiring my death under the pile of unread ARCs 😛 ), I love it for giving me such gems from time to time. Spin the Golden Light Bulb is a debut novel of Jackie Yeager and what an exceptional middle-grade novel it is! I was involved in the story from the first page itself.

Five Famous Book Series I Won’t Be Reading Anytime Soon (or ever?)


Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is Top Ten Books I Can’t Believe I Read. But again I am taking the plunge and my today’s topic is Five Famous Book Series I Won’t Be Reading Anytime Soon (or ever?). I have already discussed here how I don’t love reading series that much. But there are certain ones which compel you towards themselves to read them while there are a few which simply doesn’t make that appeal to you. So today’s post is about some of those series which I don’t see myself reading anytime soon. In fact, there is very rare chance that I will ever read these. I know some of these are pretty famous series and I understand why, but they are simply not attracting me towards them 😛

eARC Review | The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond | Bizarre but engrossing

The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond

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.

Flipping Thoughts: On Audiobooks and why I struggle to listen to them

Why I struggle to Listen to Audiobooks

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.
