Halo Reads Monthly Wrap up

Monthly Wrap up | October 2017

Tags:     

Hello Readers,

I am writing a post after a long time, this month was not good for me. There were so many family emergencies. My fiance was sick and frequently admitted to the hospital. We have lost one of our close relatives. 🙁 Overall, this month was very sad and despite being a month of Diwali it didn’t go well. Only the good news is that I joined my new job and I am very much happy with my work, team, and company. Due to all these, my mind was totally occupied and reading totally got sidelined. I able to complete just 4 books, among them, two were small reads.


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. 


So let’s have a look at my October reading.

Crooked house by Agatha Christie 

Adventures in Farland by Moshank Relia

Happiness is all we want by Ashutosh Mishra 

♦ Three thousands stitches by Sudha Murthy

Crooked House by Agatha Christie 

Adventures in Farland by Moshank Relia 

Interview of Serina Adham, The author of Lulu’s Ballam-Bam-Bam Grooves 

So Near the Horizon by Jessica Koch, Jaime Mcgill 

Mritunjaya by Shivaji Sawant 

The Diary of a young girl by Anne Frank 

Happiness is all we want by Ashutosh Mishra 

“Starting prayers in a proactive manner,when you are not facing any great challenges in life, is the best thing you can do.”

Happiness is all we want by Ashutosh Mishra

♥ Our life is precious so enjoy each and every moment.

♥ The judicial system and the police are corrupt, they don’t feel shame to play politics on a woman who just lost her life.

I wasn’t able to read more books, thus can’t fulfill my bookish goal. However, I read Crooked House by Agatha Christie and two non-fiction, Happiness is all we want by Ashutosh Mishra (self-help) and Three thousands stitches by Sudha Murthy.

            We should read self-help books 

A self-help book can be boring and we normally don’t want someone to blabber tips and trick. But there come some self-help books which are very good and we need to read them once in a while.

‘Happiness is all we want by Ashutosh Mishra’ is a precious book, which perfectly sums our daily lives. This book includes various excellent tips and techniques which can help us to live a healthier life. This book motivated me to start meditation again.

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

The night train at Deoli and other stories by Ruskin Bond – Book review 

Kabuliwala by Rabindranath Tagore- Book review 

♥ I want to regain my reading speed.

♥ I want to start doing Yoga again.

♥ I want to finish reading my TBR and review copies, I am totally lacking behind. 🙁

Love Sutra by @urvashi_pahwa 
Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Love is a feeling which cannot be expressed in the words. From many years, poets and writers are penning about this. Over the time, the definition of love changed. If we see the present situation then there are very few people who love each other unconditionally.  Living in the modern era when the other things take importance, do we have time to explore and understand love? The author of this book tried to give us some influential love sutra through the various stories. Thank you so much dear author for giving me a chance to read and review your debut work. 😊

First of all, I would like to thank the publisher for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The first thing which attracts the readers is the enchanting book cover, adorned with magenta colour and the palm of Buddha. This book cover can attract even a non-reader. After reading the blurb and genre, I was quite skeptical about this book but to my surprise, it turned out to be one of best non-fiction books of this year. .

Why should you read this book? .
Living in the modern world when our day starts with rush and end with a rush, we hardly take an effort to understand our self. The result, we are surrounded with various diseases in spite of living the most comfortable life. There are handful people who heard this call on time but what about us? When will start living a healthy life? This book deals with all these aspects of our modern life. I highly recommend this book to everyone who wants to live a healthy life. .
