If I think about the books that I read, this year, so far, has been really good. I wasn’t expecting to read this many books. Though some of my friends on Goodreads are close to 100, but still I’m happy with my performance. I extended my Goodreads Reading Challenge from 16 to 26, which I’ll extend again to 40. I’ll try to make it to 50.
Here the titles that I read in 2017-
- 5 stars: Angels & Demons, The Skinning Tree, The Tree with a Thousand Apples , So Many Hungers!
- 4 stars: Best Stories from around the world, Under the Udala Trees, The Arrangements of Love, Romance Shorts, The Catcher in the Rye, Metamorphosis, The Power and the Glory , Someone to Love.
- 3 stars: Small Towns… Big Stories, A Knotty Affair, What to do when Someone Dies, Think with Me, Finding Juliet, Game of Anarchy, These Circuses that sweep through the Landscape.

I’m yet to post reviews for 4 of these. That’s all about the Books.
This year is the year of transition just like 2014, in which I left school & joined college. I’ll be graduating in July. I’ve appeared in the Entrance Exam for M.A. English, for 4 universities. My last exam is on 4th of July. I’m waiting for these results, along with the result of my last semester of B.A. I hope to get all the results before 15th of July. After that I’ll be entering a professional world.
So, there will be a transition from college life to University life, provided I secure a seat in some university of my choice. Otherwise I’ll drop a year or study for a year in whatever University, I get admitted in.
Besides this, I’m also hoping to get back to the gym before August. I left gym in May, due to my exams. Besides that, there is nothing else, worth a mention.
How was your life in the 1st half of 2017? I would love to hear about you people. Thanks.
