Hello Everyone! It was raining almost whole month here in India so I spend my weekends at home only and of course reading. 🙂 Rain, Books and Tea what else you want for happy month!
Ahm! I don’t have a diary for monthly planner so I printed out planner sheet and filled it. I wanted this kind of ‘at- glance calendar’ since I started blog especially to note blitz/ cover/ tour dates. Okay, here is the pic of that and please ignore that bad writing and my poorest attempt to decorate it.
I’m running and hiding somewhere! Ew! I won’t use sketch pens next month.
I participated in page count contest organized by a group on Goodreads ( ) this month so I know how many pages I read this month. I participate almost every month in this group.

Fantasy / YA:
I know every month I read one book by India. I can’t help but read anything written by this versatile author. Emotional book with heavy topics and beautiful romance and friendship.
This installment bring out all curiosity present in the world into me. I loved this series and can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.
Wonderful magical world and concept with exciting magical adventure.
Horror / Dark Fantasy:
very different than usual books of this genre, fast paced, and loved surprises. I loved it.
Nice, cozy, and clean YA Romance
I was not happy with this book. Poor editing and poor execution. It kind of made me cautious for selecting books in this genre.
I’m glad I had this book to restore my love for this genre. It was adventurous mythical saga. I love this author’s writing.
Character driven beautiful realistic fiction.
Feel-good, relaxing and cozy ‘Trip’ that you would like to read on your trip.
Manipulated Lives collection of stories telling lot of about manipulators and Stockholm syndrome. This stories changed my view towards the world. Author has written all stories with a perfect flow.
Freak was freaking best book of this this month. Awesome book with lot of lessons to learn through deep intense thoughts of characters.
Have you noticed there were 4 books second in the series this month. 3 very insightful books, so I learned lot of things this month. overall and biggest lesson of the month was stay away from bullies and manipulator or better kick and punch them on the first sight.
