Hello friends. I had kinda abandoned this blog of mine in the previous month. I published only three posts in March. I was very busy. It was my sister’s wedding and I was too involved in all the pre and post wedding functions. Then I had my Mid Semester exams which got over yesterday itself.
Now I’m trying to get back on track by making a TBR for this month. But still the path is not that clear. I have many review copies to be read and I also have to prepare for my final exams in May. But I’ll try to read as much as I can. Let us start.
- Lord of the Flies by William Golding: On the priority are the texts prescribed for my course. I’ll start this one most probably in the next week. The book is about a group of teenage boys who are abandoned on an uninhabited island after a plane crash. Through the savage behavior of the boys on the island, Golding shows how our animal instincts return back as soon as we move out of the civilization.
- Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad: This one is again for my course. I’ve heard so much about this book that I really don’t know what to right. It is a novella of about 100 pages. I started it yesterday and I’m liking it so far. I’ll finish it in the coming weekend.
- The Long Forgotten by David Whitehouse: Although I wasn’t accepting any review copies in the past three months, I had requested this one in December. I started reading it in last month and couldn’t get back to it after reading 3 chapters. But I finally got back to it yesterday. And I’m loving it. There are three absolutely different threads and I can’t wait to see how the three get joined in the end.
- The Greatest Urdu Stories Ever Told: I got this book in November. I had requested it multiple times and then finally I got it. But I haven’t been able to finish it yet. I’ve read only 3 out of the 25 stories, so far. The stories are awesome but I’m unable to make time for this book. My target is to finish it before the mid of May.
- That Thing We Call a Heart by Sheba Karim: This is another review copy. It was sent by Bloomsbury about two months ago. But I haven’t got into the mood of reading a romance yet. But this book, I think, is much more than a romance. I’m planning to finally pick it up in the later part of this month.
- Indian Cultures as Heritage by Romila Thapar: I got this book recently. I requested it because I like reading about cultures and it is written by Romila Thapar and also because I wanted to read non-fiction. I’ll pick it up after finishing The Long Forgotten.
So that’s it for this month. I really hope that I’ll be able to meet my targets. Which book are you excited for, this month? And how was your March? Do share your views. Thanks.
