August: My favorite month of the year. Because it’s Birthday month.
Well, August was more of a review copy month for me. Filled with both crappy and good books. My endless TBR remains untouched 😦
Let’s jump to it then.
- Messed up! But all for you by Arvind Parashar: A book I didn’t really like. Read my full review here.
- Kim by Rudyard Kipling: I have read about half of the book. I intend to finish it soon :P.
- Kabuliwala by Rabindranath Tagore: A childhood favorite, I re-read this book for the #DiscoveringIndiaReadathon. The book is about the unique bond that develops between Mini- the author’s daughter and the Kabuliwala, and how at the end the Kabuli Wala is asked to leave because their friendship isn’t good according to the social norms.
- No Ordinary Star by M.C. Frank: A dystopian, fantasy series talks about the death of family, relationships, emotions and holidays. A book I thoroughly enjoyed. I fell in love with the cover first and then the book and the characters. Read my review here 🙂
- Second Chance by Dr. Sandeep Jatwa: A book that talks about second chances which a very few people get. Review up here 🙂
- A Team of Extraordinary Bastards by Arka Dutta: One of my favorite read of the month, the book is about a footballer who successfully finds his ray of hope in his dark, devastated life. Read full review here 🙂
- Social Recruiters: A non-fiction that talks about the present era- an era of social recruitment. Social media platforms have become essential in spreading the word about job openings and hiring procedures. Hence a candidate needs to be an active member of the social platform. There are challenges for the recruiters too. They need to come up with new techniques to attract more candidates and make the process user-friendly.
And finally, the star of the month:
- The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood: This book has now officially become my all time favorite read. Review is up here 🙂
- A book that I have just started reading: These Circuses that Sweep through the Landscape by Tejaswini Apte-Rahm. It’s a collection of short stories. Each story is dark and strange in its own way. I am enjoying this a lot.
And that’s a wrap. See you next month birdies 🙂
Until next time
