Monthly Wrap-Up: January 2018

Jan 2018 wrapup

Hello Book Lovers! I hope you all had a great first month of the year. Without much chit-chat I would like to wrap up January month in express speed so that I could start focusing on February. This month was good and finished all the books  that I thought would read in January. Just 1 book behind. But I will finish it in Feb so no big deal. At least better than 2 or 3 books behind.


What I read this month-

Last Chai

Review: The Last Chai: Bringing the Nation to a Halt by Varun T.

Stars: 5/5

It was creative Indian political thriller. It was kind of sequel but definitely can be read as standalone. I can’t wait to read the sequel of this book.

my sweet friend

Review: My Sweet Friend by H.A. Leuschel

Stars: 4.5/5

I just loved this Psychological Fiction about compulsive liar and manipulator. Original plot, unique and creative characters.

Kartikeya Jpeg

Review: Kartikeya: The Destroyer’s Son by Anuja Chandramouli

Stars: 5/5

This was my third Indian Mythological Fiction by Anuja Chandramouli. It was well thought and well researched life story of God Kartikeya.
