August has been a very good month in terms of reading books. I actually read most of the books on my TBR. Cause most of the times I just read completely random books and just keep increasing my TBR. However, I did stick to my TBR this time. AND OH MY GOD, I kind of maybe found a favorite series. The Every series by Ellie Marney. It is kind of a spinoff of Sherlock.
Plot twists can only go two ways. Either they can resolve a conflict or they cause even more conflict. Here is my list of plot twists I did not see coming AT ALL among the books that I read recently.
Jane Austen’s works are perhaps, my favorite among the classics genre. I loved reading all of her six published works. Persuasion is my favorite closely followed by Pride and Prejudice. I love diving into her world of courtships, dances and balls and the times, which I can only read about now. Her work have a pretty-wicked sense of wit and humor that just suit my taste.
I am not the kind of person who gives up on a book easily. No matter what happens, I try my best to finish a book that I have started so, I had never thought of a DNF list. However now that I think about it there have been some books slowly creeping into my list of books that I gave up on.
