Done with my #bookspin #doublespin book.

I liked this book. The starting was a bit choppy in terms of writing (which seems to be at odds with the story) but by the end, I was hooked to the story and though the killer wasn't difficult to guess, I still couldn't help but finish the book.

@TheAromaofBooks

Fininished with my first #bookspin book for may.

I really really loved this book. My first PG Woodhouse and I was not at all disappointed. Definitely recommend.

TheAromaofBooks I LOVE Wodehouse, and I always makes me happy to see other people reading his happy books! It's basically impossible to feel stressed while reading Wodehouse!! 3y

My third and final book for #bookspin completed. #TripleSpin
@TheAromaofBooks

I enjoyed the writing and the way story was set up. Not my usual read but still it was enjoyable. The way story went back and forth between past and present esp how the past was told in reverse was done well. Only major problem for me was the second last chapter. I like open endings but this one dissappointed me (details in comments as it contains spoilers).

kiks The whole premise of the present was centered around who is killing the sheep but not to have that answered at the end felt like disappointing for me. 3y
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! Great work!! And I also hate it when a major plot point is left unresolved - sometimes it feels like the author couldn't be bothered to figure out a reasonable solution, rather than it being left open-ended in an intriguing way. 3y
kiks @TheAromaofBooks exactly, that's how it felt. If it is a major plot point, it should be resolved, it could have been left open ended in another way maybe. But still, would recommend this book. 3y

While this book had some great insights, there were certain elements that were a little too much for me. Also the characters were a little too one dimensional for me.

The Palace of Illusions: A Novel | Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

Pickpick

My #bookspin of the month. @TheAromaofBooks

I really enjoyed this book. The premises was interesting (Mahabharat from Draupadis view). Fair warning if you are not aware of at least the main Mahabharat story and some of its many subplots, this might be a little confusing for many important events are glossed over or not mentioned. But considering mahabharat is too huge a story to be properly captured in 360 pages, it was a great effort. (contd)

kiks A brief summary about mahabharat would have probably helped introduce it to a newer audience who are not aware of this epic story but if you are already aware about Mahabharat, it really is worth a read. 3y
TheAromaofBooks Great review!! Glad you enjoyed your pick!! 3y

Another John Green book completed (my fourth) but still nothing still captures the magic of TFIOS. I know JG was not the only author, but since I have yet to read any of his other book, I do not have any basis of comparison for him.
This book started out good but by the end it kind of fizzled out. My sister asked me what the book was about when she saw me reading and I could only shrug and offer a vague it's about two guys with same name. (contd)

kiks 1. This book started out good but by the end, it kind of fizzled out. My sister asked me what the book was about when she saw me reading and I could only shrug and offer a vague it's about two guys with same name. This is bad since by then only two pages were left in the book. The book is almost over and that's the reason only thing I have to say about it. 3y
kiks 2. Yes you can say it has teen angst, and yeah the different kind of loves etc but not exactly a standout. This seemed a typical JG book with certain interesting parts with good heartfelt moments but parts only. Overall you can read it if you want a light quick mindless read but if you miss it, you are also not missing much. 3y

So I have this habit where at a time, usually, there are 2 —3 books in my currently reading pile. Like I can't read one book only for too long. I need a side book, so to say. Does anybody else also have this habit?

My currently reading pile attached. Is it bad I am being tempted to add one more book to this? (This is of course excluding the manga I am also reading)

I have had this book with me for ages (given as a prize in school!), but since I was never that much into classics especially one as big as this one (it has freaking about 1k pages, and while I have read books this big, it was never a classic with small font and 1k pages) , never got around to reading it. Guess nows a as good time as any to finally crack it open. Fingers crossed.

Having loved the previous two books, I had high expectations for this one. I was a little disappointed unfortunately. It is a good book, but it does drag at certain places. The ending (without giving any spoilers) was both sad and bright but the way everything was resolved, the big buildup about the fight and everything else was a little anticlimactic.

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.

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.

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. 4y

Dolores Claiborne | Stephen King

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. 4y

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

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. 4y

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. 4y

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.
