November Wrap-up

November is over. Yes, I know that you know. Let’s see what I read.

But before that, allow me to rant a little. November has been a bad month for me, mostly emotionally. I have been feeling really low and that’s mostly because I am at a very difficult phase of life, especially professionally. I hope life get’s better for me and all of you 🙂

  • Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Lang: I fell in love with them. Weylyn is the friend you always wished you had. He is smart, well mannered, untamed yet caringThe writing style is exquisite and exhilarating. It managed to make me believe that Weylyn Grey might actually exist and I would wanna follow him to woods, where life is mystical and full of possibilities. Full review here 🙂
  • The Gospel of Yudas by K.R. Meera: Disturbing and agonizing tale of infatuation and revolution, The Gospel of Yudas takes you through the trials and tribulations faced by the members of the Naxalite movement that took place in India during Indira Gandhi’s reign. Full review here 🙂
  • White Noise by Shruti Upadhaya: An extremely compelling debut novel by Shruti comes as a surprise. A definite page-turner, White Noise is not your everyday thriller. An (almost) fresh take on a completely different side of love stories in today’s world.Full review here 🙂
  • The Vegetarian by Han Kang: Han Kang has written the plot in such a free-flowing, casual manner, yet managed to give attention to every single detail. The characters are exceptionally written, especially the men. Their thoughts and mental turmoils have been penned down in a way that we get to know the characters in a more personal, delicate way. Full review here 🙂
  • Wonder Woman Warbinger by Leigh Bardugo: Dialogues are amazingly written especially because the story is supposed to be an extremely serious one with things as vital as saving the world going one. There is humor-a good amount of it. There’s satire and thoughtfulness, grief and joy, sacrifices and achievements. Full review here 🙂
  • Love, Loss and Some Deaths by Arka Datta: Each plot has its own dark, unexpected twist. Suspense is well maintained, some are even nerve-racking. Full review here 🙂
  • I Like You Like This by Heather Cumiskey: A fast-paced book, what stands out is the writing style and the time the author has taken to write every tiny emotional turmoil Hannah goes through. The plot get’s intense sometimes with issues such as bullying, self-harm, drugs and physical and mental abuses. Full review here 🙂
  • Blowfish by Siddharth Tripathi: With unexpected twists and turns, the plot manages to move forward. In the process, it highlights a lot of problems that persist in our society. Full review here 🙂
  • The End We Start From by Megan Hunter: The End We Start From has left me agitated and terrified with those subtle sentences and metaphors that carry the dead weight of destruction and loss. The book is full of promises and proves that hope is the only constant companion in the catastrophic dystopian world the author created for all of us. Full review here 🙂
  • Dying Day by Stephen Edger: The twists and turns, which are an essential part of any thriller, has been dealt with exceptionally well. The plot gets surprisingly interesting, even with all these characters. Full review here 🙂
  • Love Sutra: Secret to Happily Ever After by Urvashi Pahwa: A very fresh POV to the traditional loves stories we all read. This is a book that is more of an observation, diagnosis and conclusion kinda book and It emphasizes of how these characters fall into the pit of betrayal and deceit and then pull themselves back up. Or essentially, how they find their ‘happily ever after’. Full review here 🙂
  • Undelivered letters by J. Alchem: ‘Undelivered letters’ is about a bag of letters that the postman, Aron, forgot to deliver about 20 years back. So when he finds the bag while vacating his house, his wife suggests him to deliver the letters and ‘apologize’ for the inconvenience caused. Full review here 🙂
