Hey there :3 Yes, I know it’s been terribly long since I’ve posted anything…but, guess what? My college started. Woot woot. And it’s a really tight schedule, so you may have to get used to the really slow posts.
I thought I’d do a quick review thing for all of you. So in the past month, I’ve read: The Devil wears Prada, How to Fall in love, Diary of a young girl and Life of Pi. I’m also halfway through The girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The five people you meet in heaven. (I also finally caught up with The Hunger Games and the Divergent series. But I’m not reviewing that, it’s really too late.)
So maybe that’s not TOO many. But in the past month, I’ve also had one surgery, one trip to Goa, one trip to Mumbai and a lot of movie time. And college. Can’t forget college. ( Socializing, stalking yada yada yada). I’ve finished five seasons of How I met your Mother (yes, I’m aware the ending sucks) and three seasons of Dr.Who. That’s a well spent one month.
Quick reviews work like this. I review them based on rank. From most favorite, to least preferred.
RANK 1 GOES TO….*drumroll*
Life of Pi, by Yann Martel.
I’m sure a lot of you would have watched the movie. In reality, the movie is just a less-graphic, more toned down version of the book. Both are mind-blowing, they question religion, they question morals and values and imagination. It is beyond amazing, but it is DEFINITELY NOT FOR THE QUEASY.
Notice how I both, capitalized AND bolded that statement. I mean it. Unless you want to know exactly how a zebra looks with its limbs torn apart and head severed.
(PS it is that bad. I’m not exaggerating.)
But my god, I’ve not read such a fantastic book in a while. So go read it. It’s first on the list today.
Rank 2 goes to
Diary of a young girl (Anne Frank)
Okay so I’m really late in reading this, and yeah you can judge. But it’s a great book, appreciable in general. However, I did find The boy in the striped Pyjamas better. Anne Frank’s story, though, is a constant reminder of how human nature can be so destructive. It’s sad, really.
Rank 3 goes to
The Devil wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger
SEXY BOOOOOOOK. It’s a typical chick-lit novel, fun and a light read. Nothing too taxing on the head.
Rank 4 goes to
How to Fall in Love by Cecilia Ahern
I’m sorry, but I really didn’t like the book. It wasn’t much of anything, didn’t leave an impact either. It was okay, with a rather cliche story that reminded me of Bollywood’s Anjaana Anjaani. It was…eh…okay.
Books in line:
1) Finish 5 people you meet in heaven.
2) The Cuckoo’s Calling
3) Unaccustomed Earth
4) Silent House
5) Bridget Jones
6) A couple of David Baldacci
8) Be careful what you wish for
9) Half of a yellow sun.
Any previews for me ?
So there you have it. The quick reviews for this month. Stay tuned for more posts. (heheheh wuut.)
