Recently I've been reading Donne. I don't generally go for poetry but a friend of mine once suggested me for Donne, that I would like it.
I really found the collection quite interesting. It's the poet's strange yet fascinating use metaphysical conceits and his subtle sense of presentation of the temperament of the age fused with his personal issues.
It establishes the relationship between the personal and the universal.

Enjoyed it thoroughly.

Lcsmcat He‘s one of my favorite poets! I‘m glad you like his work too. 12mo
rhea_reads11 Yeah, i liked it. 12mo

At last, I've started reading this book, been looking for this like for months. It's of my top favourite writer.
Most of the people will admit that Hardy's a pessimist. But what I think is that the word pessimist sounds negative. He's more of a realist.

He writes in the simple language of philosophy with his often stinging irony; that life is never cruel by itself but it's our ignorance to reality which makes it difficult.

Loving this read😘

CoffeeNBooks I'm reading this right now, too! I'm about halfway through the book. The only other Thomas Hardy book I've read is The Mayor of Casterbridge, and I really liked it. 1y
rhea_reads11 That's great.. *same_pinch* Yeah I'VE read that too N also far Far From the Madding Crowd. I'm sure you'll like this one even more than Casterbridge. ENJOY! @CoffeeNBooks 1y

Ghosh has always been one of my favorite writers and I think this book is his signature work along with The Glass Palace n sea of Poppies. Precisely i love the way he keeps it low profile yet elegant while illustrating the story along with his dialectical uses in his novels. But what i like about d novel is d raw depiction of daily life and death situations of the abandoned fates. It's like a war for survival. Would recommend the book to everyone.

Harry Potter: fun book | J.K. Rowling

I think that d Harry Potter books r better than the movie series. I mean Rowling's deep imagination, humour n Vivid descriptions of characters, incidents n settings r wat evokes d unquenchabl thirst 2 learn more about Harry's life n his ppl. In d book, Ron always amazes us wid his stupid ideas. Tbh the book takes us to a more magical Hogwarts.
Or it may b just because I can't get enough of Harry Potter n so wishing for the next part 8,9,10,...🤔

Never Let Me Go | Kazuo Ishiguro

I love the book.
Generally I don't go for the modern. But this book depicts a very harsh reality.
The way the characters struggle to live their lives a bit more than they are 'alotted' mostly caught my attention.
And somewhere it just felt that we too often do suffer from certain fate where someone else decides our lives and we are left helpless, with no right to choose for ourselves which is very unfortunate.

Now that my exam is over, I've officially returned into LITSY (I was active and I have zero determination when it comes to books, so it was an unsuccessful HIATUS).

Anyways in the process, I've fallen in love with stream of consciousness novel, and I'm starting now with Mrs. Dalloway.

It's good in its own way.. coz nothing can beat Oliver twist, david Copperfield n Great expectations(favourite). Character portrayal is very vivid. and it has a lot of symbols and stuff.

Lcsmcat That‘s a beautiful edition! 2y
rhea_reads11 Yes... thank you 2y

I enjoyed it thoroughly. Again. it's the fourth time. Academic reads. (Can't dare to read apart from college stuffs at this moment??). It has everything I look for in a non-fiction. Beautiful way of description. Characters are well conceived. Perfect way to present an almost autobiography. I love Joyce. Looking forward to read "Ulysses" too.

A must read for every Bookworm... if you still haven't.

Untouchable | Mulk Raj Anand

Academic read.
It presents the real pre-independent society of India. It's just like the story of the old India I'd heard from my great grandpa. It's a serious stuff. Really serious stuff.
And a must-read too.
