Hi everyone! How are you all?
September was a very different month for me. I recovered from my toe injury for the most part and probably gained a lot of weight by sitting all day. Since I had a lot of time on my hands, I hoped that I would be able to read a lot of books but that didn’t quite happen. I only managed to finish four books but I will give myself some credit since one of them was 630 pages long and I did start a few more books.
Anyways, let’s get started 🙂
Books I Read
1. Untouchable by Mulk Raj Anand
My rating- 5 stars
This is one of the best books by an Indian author that I have ever read. I have read very few books that are so wonderfully written as this one. I loved the author’s motive behind the book. He showed us a day in the life of an untouchable and completely took us to that time. We see the various emotions that Bakha feels and sympathize with him. I also liked how the book ended on a hopeful note. This book is quite short but you need to slowly read it to completely experience it. I have also read Coolie by Mulk Raj Anand but it was years ago and I barely remember it. I’ll try to re-read it sometime in the future.
2. Unlawful Justice by Vish Dhamija
My Rating- 4.5 stars
This book was an awesome read. I feel like I should read at least 1 or 2 thrillers every month because they are just that good. This book is a legal thriller and it was my first read by Vish Dhamija.

3. The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
My rating- 2 stars
I don’t even want to talk about this book anymore so I’ll keep it brief. I enjoyed the historical aspect but I did not like the relationship between the two main characters. It was not the kind of love story I enjoy. This book was way too long and it was not worth it to keep reading it till the end.

4. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank (Re-read)
My Rating- 5 stars
Anne Frank’s diary is one of my favorite books of all time and I read it for the third time this month. As always, it made me both sad and happy. This is a book that I recommend everyone to read.
Tv Shows Watched
In terms of tv shows, this month was pretty great. I started watching the UK based show Skins and finished 4 seasons. I loved the first two seasons and the set of characters that it had. I also loved the third season and I thought that this installment would be even better than the previous seasons. But my hopes were crushed when season 4 turned out to be a disaster. I hated its ending and I cannot believe how silly it was. I’m currently on the fifth season and I’m hoping it is good.
I’ve been binge-watching Parks and Recreation for the past few days and I can’t believe I was skeptical to actually start it. I love Leslie and she’s really inspiring. The show is very refreshing with awesome characters. Also, Ben is the perfect guy for me.
I have no clue what I listened to this month so I’m going to skip that section for this month.
