  • A Year in Recap

    So I have been gone a really long time. And though life’s been a rollercoaster, it doesn’t mean I gave up on books and reading. I slowed down, yes. But  gave up, never. This is a glimpse into a month-by-month account of my reading since I last reported in July 2013. It also gives a hint of the reviews coming up in the near future. I am back, yes, and I hope to stay this time around. *Fingers crossed*

    Month Wrap Up: May 2013

    So May was an extremely busy month for me since it was my sister’s wedding and then time just flew by. I did manage to read a bit though. I read a total of 14 books.

    I finished reading

    I’m in the middle of

    Book(s) of the Month

    Out of the 14 books, I read in May, 10 got 4 stars. So you can imagine my dilemma in choosing the book of the month. I read some really good reads last month and urge you to read them.

    Month Wrap Up: March 2013

    I had 25 books on my pile for the month of March and how many did I get read? A dismal 14. Yes, that’s it. In spite of the fact that I had almost a week off. Blame it on work or my sister’s upcoming marriage, the time seems to be flying by these days.

    February was a really busy month. My February 2013 TBR Pile had 26 books but I managed to read only 13. But with my hectic schedule, we can overlook that, right? 😉

    Month Wrap-Up: January 2013


    So as usual I had this huge January 2013 TBR Pile of 34 books. Yes, you read it right, 34. And I managed to read 20 of them and some more that were not on my list. I read a total of 26 books (19 full length, 1 novella and 6 children’s). I think that’s quite good, right?
