I cannot believe February is over already. At the beginning of the month, I had too much energy for blogging, maybe that's why halfway through the month, the energy sort of fizzled out. And now, its the end of the month already, and I only have half-written drafts, which I have no motivation to complete. Anywhoo, I have finally found the motivation to write a wrap-up post. 😀 FEBRUARY- A month of mostly Crime/Mystery/Thrillers.

A week into 2018 I can already tell that handling my studies and reading books is going to be a tough job this year. I can literally feel the pressure, probably because my Midterms are from next week! So I’ve decided to make some resolutions for this new year with regards to reading books. Here we go: Set reading goal to only 50 books on Goodreads I remember being so stressed to read any book, just to complete my reading goal. Probably because of all that stress, reading books had started to feel like a job. A job, that I did not particularly like to do.
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.
Here is an overview for the month of July and my TBR for August. From the beginning of July, I had accepted that I would not be reading a lot of books this month, taking into account that I had my midterms from 10th to 18th. And foolish me, I had decided to do the Hobonichi Challenge for July. My brain was probably on overdrive trying to balance out my priorities. I mostly just randomly browse books and pick something that sounds interesting or looks glorious. TBR lists intimidate me, to be honest. Nevertheless, this time I am going to make a specific TBR list for August. I hope that this will be a productive month in terms of reading books! 😀
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.
