I am still not over the way the second to last chapter ended. Everything that happened after, well I thought I was numb and nothing could rattle me, and I couldn't have been more wrong. Guess who is now immediately opening the next part.

That's like the worst most heart breaking way to kill beloved characters. ".... and then they died." Like damn it, they deserved more. And he didn't even get to have a reunion with Lyra!!

This is another take on the Pied Piper story. The story was good though only attraction was the graphics and the bittersweet ending. On one hand I hated the guy, on the other I understood him as well. It is a quick read, worth a try.

This line is so innocent yet so heart breaking.

Hey everyone!! Anybody interested in playing a little game? #bookchain. You take the last letter of the book name or author and post a book with the name or author starting from that letter with the hash tag #bookchain tagging the person from whom you are continuing. Let's start with this book. Post a book whose name or author name is starting with N or P? And anybody or everybody following you can continue from there. You can even post twice.

I loved this book. Technically I know this is considered a kids book. But the layers this book had!! It was unbelievable. The only reason it could be considered kids book maybe because mc is a young kid. But it was so interesting. I could never get the hate on this movie (except from the religious side) but now I can. This book was infinitely better than the movie The Golden Compass. The movie to appease people removed the heart of this book.

kiks By removing the religion part, the story isn't the same. Lyra, cheeky and resourceful and fascinating Lyra is everything that a strong mc is, and a female one at that. She is a wild spirit nobody could tame. Lyra, you are an inspiration. Her fierce loyalty is amazing and the end completely broke my heart. Can't wait to read the second one. 12mo

This book is based in small town and you get kind of a rustic Indian vibe reading this. The book has a simple narrative and that charmed me in a way I didnt expect.

This book was so good. The cover drew me in (its creepy yet intriguing, isnt it?). My expectations were completely blown over. This book was gripping and clever. Not one moment that I wanted to rush. It was murder mystery and one of the best I have read.

Dolores Claiborne | Stephen King
post image
Pickpick

3 books in one day!! (granted I was already halfway through it but still).
I haven't read that many Stephen King books (I think 3 including this one) but I have really enjoyed the authors work. This one wasnt horror at least not in a traditional sense. More like a person facing horrors of life and dealing with it. And I loved the book. It isnt divided into chapters to make it read as a monologue, definitely something new (contd in comment)

kiks The book was addicting even when you were horrified and I loved every moment. Dolores Clairborne is a remarkable woman. She is the kind of well written female characters with spine that we deserve more of. Kudos to Stephen King for another amazing book. 1y

Mansfield Park | Jane Austen

Another one bites the dust. If you are a romantic or Jane Austin fan, you will probably like this book. It was an alright book. It touched on some issues but there were some themes I felt were repeated from her other books. So if you are sucker for classic romance, go for this book.

Gossip Girl | Cecily von Ziegesar

Mehso-so

I was one those that watched gossip girl. I haven't seen every single episode but I did follow it for about two seasons (the last two). I thought it was an alright show so when I got the chance to buy this book at a dirt cheap price, I took it because books are mostly better. In this case it wasnt so or maybe its because I grew up. Whatever the reason, I didnt enjoy it as much. Shallow despicable characters I expected. But (contd below)

kiks But they were all so band and boring. Maybe that was the theme. But the only reason I finished was because it was a quick light read and one less book unread book in my shelf. Good for nostalgia but im not going to read anymore books in this series. 1y

I picked this book for its cover. My mom got this from goodreads giveaway and I immediately fell in love with its elegant and simple cover. As for the book, it was good. Dont read it if you want a strict biography on Leon Theremin but choose it for its beautiful words. There was almost a poetical quality to the book. It was a very romanticized version of the life of the inventor but then again I was never big into biographies (contd in comments)

kiks So setting aside facts, I really loved this book as an imagination of the scientists life. Will definitely recommend this book. Honestly I wouldnt mind reading another one of the authors book. 1y

People were going crazy for this book and I wanted to read this before I saw the movie. Hated this so much, I didnt even bother with the movie.

@Libby1

Libby1 Ooh! Is this another book about dying teenagers? 🙅🏼‍♀️🙄 1y
kiks @Libby1 yeah. Teen is in a coma and reflects back on her life and decide whether to live or die. Could have been deep but its wasted its premise. Only reason I finished it because I was naive back then and returning a book without completing kind of felt wrong to me. 1y
Libby1 Ha ha! I‘m glad you‘ve learned to Bail now. It‘s an acquired skill for me, too. 1y

Lel2403 House of Leaves.....I just didn‘t like it at all 14mo
edennugget I'm over halfway through this book and dislike it as well. I don't feel connected to Mia at all and can't see myself crying at it as so many people do despite me being an easy crier. The concept is interesting but the execution not so much. Will still be finishing it and will post a final review later on. 13mo
kiks @Eden.Ng exactly how I felt. This could have been so moving and deep. Yet the execution reduced it to teen musings. 13mo
edennugget @kiks just finished it and I stand by our opinions. I respect others who like it but I really felt it could've been much more poignant than it was. I don't think I'll be picking up the sequel. 13mo
kiks @Eden.Ng exactly 13mo

1. Inheritance Cycle. Many book series have come and gone, but my love for this remains constant. The book is basically Star Wars set in LoTR era with dragons. There are a lot of parallels between SW and this series but still this series grew on me.
2. Jessica Jones. Currently I can't get enough of this series.
3. No
4. Its a surprise. Even I dont know yet. 😂
5. He says he used to love reading when he was young.

The Secret | Rhonda Byrne

Finally finished it. I liked the book. This is the second motivational/self help book I have read and I didnt regret it. Lets see if I can use this 'secret' to make my life better. Would definitely recommend everyone to read this at least once.

Vertabrain Thanks for the friend request! I read, The Secret, years ago and it‘s opened lots of doors for me. I also recommend, Paul Selig‘s books. Don‘t let the “channeled text” aspect scare you. Every book is packed with powerful juju! 😉🙌🏼 I recommend starting with, I Am Word. 1y
kiks @Vertabrain added the book to my to read list. Will definitely read when I get the chance. Thanks for the recommendations. 😁 1y

Never plan ahead what you want to read! I planned to read something else and now Im reading this. Looks like Girl on the Train will have to wait some more

Dreddy26 Recently I'm starting reading books.. my friend suggest me to read this book.. Is this book good ? I have no idea about books which author is best and which book is good..... 1y
kiks @Dreddy26 its a self help/ motivational book. I liked it. It focuses on the power of positive thinking. If you are looking for fiction, this might not be it. What kind of genre holds your interest? 1y
Dreddy26 I have read only 12 to 16 books. I don't know my interest in which type of book . Sometime i like action,horror etc. I pick any book and start reading . now i have ( the bankcroft strategy -Robert Ludlum) I have not started this book .... 1y
See All 9 Comments
kiks @Dreddy26 you can start by reading The alchemist by Paul coehlo or who moved my cheese (easy read, self help books) or you can also try Malgudi Days. You can also try To Kill A mockingbird. I started my reading journey with Harry Potter so you can always try those books (I still love that series). 1y
kiks Currently im reading The first book in the golden compass series by philip pullman and Dolores clairborne by Stephen king (I usually read two books at a time) . I am loving both books. 1y
kiks @Dreddy26 I will also highly recommend The book thief. 1y
