Halo Reads Monthly Wrap up

Monthly Wrap up | August 2017

Tags:     

Hello friends,

Finally, I am doing a monthly wrap up post. ๐Ÿ™‚ I wanted to do it from a long time, but it always gets sidelined. The person whose post inspired me to do this wrap-up post is Simant Verma from flippingthruthepages.com she is an awesome book blogger you all should definitely check her blog. ๐Ÿ˜€


For me monthly wrap-up is an essential post which helps me evaluate my month at a glance and it is also a great way to record reading progress. I hope you all will enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed writing it.ย 


August is my birthday month, so my favorite. ๐Ÿ˜€ I have celebrated my 24th birthday this month and managed to complete my Goodreads reading challenge of 60 books. ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the first time, I read 13 books in the month. Quite a miracle, I guess ๐Ÿ˜› And finally, I changed the header of my blog and owned a logo. Did you like it? Kindly mention in the comment section. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Yama’s Lieutenant and the stone witch by Anuja Chandramouli
  • ABC’s of Horror by Anmol Rawat
  • Semmanthaka: The Second Quest by Dr. Syd K
  • White Noise by Shruti Upadhaya
  • Jason Cage by Akay Brothers
  • While the light lasts by Agatha Christie
  • 31 Miles by Vinita Bakshi

  • Canvas of a Mind by Purba Chakraborty
  • Harappa: The curse of blood river by Vineet Bajpai
  • The Sixth: The Legend of Karna by Karan Vir Arora
  • Unbreakable by M.C. Mary Kom
  • Prema by Munshi Premchand

*Some of the books are in Kindle edition, thus not included in picture.

By me:

 

By Pooja:

“Criticism only brings out the fighter in me.” – Unbreakable: An autobiography by M.C. Mary Kom

โ™ฅ Do not take your health lightly, finally, I learned that ‘Health is Wealth’.

โ™ฅ Save money, there comes a time when you need money but don’t have any so start saving.

This month I created and followed a bookish goal to include diversity in reading.

Autobiography can be interesting too

I have not read many autobiographies, the last among this was My experiments with truth by Mahatma Gandhi, which was okay but was a dry read. While reading the biography of Mary Kom, I found that it can be interesting. I literally glued to this book until I finished it.

It would be ‘The Blue Umbrella by Ruskin Bond’. This book left a question in my heart that Is a worldly thing more important or the relations?

Silence the court is in session by Vijay Tendulkar – Book reviewย 

Indigo by Satyajit Ray – Book reviewย 

Interview of Anuja Chandramouli, The author of ‘Yama’s Lieutenant and the stone witch’

โ™ฅ To get a full-time job, I am trying hard hopefully I am able to get one soon.

โ™ฅ Increase my reading speed so that I can read more books. ๐Ÿ˜›

โ™ฅ Drive more traffic to my blog and write more bookish posts.

Thank you so much for reading ๐Ÿ™‚ How did you find this post? How was your month? Which is the best book you have read this month? What are your goals for next month? Kindly let us know, we would love to hear from you.ย โ™ฅ

I was provided a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange of an honest book review. So at first, I would like to thank them. The title itself suggests that it is a story of a bride or better say a girl.ย 
The complications of marriage and choosing a suitable bride and groom is the interesting part of this book. .

There is nothing like reading a collection of #shortstories stories. I simply love reading them. They serve various emotions in few pages and thatโ€™s what makes short stories beautiful. This book comes as a review copy from the publisher @niyogi_books and @trisha_niyogi so at first, I would like to give them huge thanks. .

I have read this book last year but wasnโ€™t able to write a review due to various things in personal life. The author has provided the copy of this book in exchange for an honest book review. So at first, I would like to thanks him.
.
This book has 15 chapters; each describes a lie which we tend to speak in our life. Though we donโ€™t realize these little lazy lies are the main hurdle in our success.
.
This is a short book, enveloped with impressive life lessons! Totally recommend to those who want to get best from their life.

Set in the backdrop of Patna this book depicts a story of Abhik, an engineer at Ashok Leyland Company.

Abhik is suffering from a broken love which makes him hesitate to fall in love again. However, he is smitten by the beauty of Radhika, the most beautiful and talented girl in the class. They started going out for coffee and dinner but they both afraid to share the feeling. Then one day a thing happens which makes Radhika go away from Abhik. Radhika is devastated. Why Radhika decides to stay away from Abhik? Does Abhik love Radhika or he still loves his ex-girlfriend? What is the love destiny of Abhik and Radhika? Who truly wins the love in this love triangle? Read this touching and inspiring love story, which makes you remind your love days.
