December Wrap-up|Ending the year with a BANG!|

2018 is officially over, and I am not ready for 2019. I am sure by the time I am ready for 2019, it will be time for 2020, Honestly, that’s my life- living in this dream world of mine.

Speaking of the dream world, I did go full-on bonkers this month and read 21 books. I just picked them up and munched on them. Quite an achievement I believe. Let’s see what books I devoured:

  1. Year One by Nora Roberts: A post-apocalyptic drama, that has a chaotic world and magical elements at its very core. A bit slow, but loved the characters and the plot.
  2. The Book of M by Peng Shephard: Well, Unpopular opinion, I did not enjoy this book at all. I was confused the whole time, and the ending most certainly, didn’t make up for the messy and slow plot.
  3. Of course, it’s Butterfingers by Khyrunnisa A.: A children’s book full of mischief that took me straight back to my childhood days.
  4. City of My Heart by Rana Safvi: An ode to Dilli, in form of stories. Another book that wasn’t for me.
  5. Lies by Aleatha Romig: The Second Book to the Web of Sins Trilogy, romantic, steamy and thrilling.
  6. Tenth of December by George Saunders: My first Saunders, and I loved his unusual stories on everyday life.
  7. Lucknow Diaries by Partha Sarathi Sen Sharma: Straight from the streets of Lucknow, a story of love, loss, and ambition.
  8. Don’t Tell The Governor by Ravi Subramanian: A thriller encompassing some major events in the Indian Political scenario, very predictable, but entertaining.
  9. Pulse by Michael Harvey: A thriller on mind and manipulation, quite good, ending not appreciated.
  10. Of Blood and Bone by Nora Roberts: The Second book of the #ChroniclesoftheOne trilogy, Loved every bit of it. It’s magical, enchanting, thrilling and talks about relationships in the new world.
  11. Room Mate by Katie Ashley: Very steamy. A bodyguard/target romance, that is entertaining, sassy and adorable.
  12. Fortune’s Soldier by Alex Rutherford: A historical fiction, loosely based on the life of Nicholas Ballyntine- a soldier in the British Army, with a colonized India as a backdrop.
  13. Three Japanese Stories: Set of three random stories by Japanese authors, different and touching.
  14. Wonder Words by Rituparna Sarkar: A book about unique, untranslatable words from all over the world.
  15. The Greek Escape by Karen Swan: A romance, that can also be read like a thriller. Slow, but entertaining.

  17. The Secret to Dating your Best Friend’s Sister by Meghan Quinn: Annoying but so good!
  18. The Afflictions by Vikram Paralkar: A unique story about a pseudo-encyclopedia of medicine, that has bizarre diseases documented meticulously.
  19. The Kinship of Secrets by Eugenia Kim: A story of two sisters, separated at birth and raised differently. Emotional, deep, and engaging.
  20. Cinder by Marissa Meyer: A Cinderella retelling, but with a lot of Sci-fi. Very innovative and definitely engrossing.
  21. Promises by Alethea Romig: The third book of the Web of Sins trilogy, loved the conclusion, the character development, the romance, and the way it all ended so realistically.
