October 2017 Wrap-Up and Haul

20171107_012904-1-01-01

Hi everyone! How are you all? (I’ve noticed none of you ever answer this :()

October passed by in a blur for me and honestly, I can’t even remember much of what all happened. Anyways, let’s get started with my wrap-up. I managed to read 6 books and re-read 2 books. Compared to the last few months, I consider this pretty good.

Books I Read

1. The Secret by Rhonda Byrne

The Secret (The Secret, #1)

My Rating- 5 stars

I just finished this book and I am so happy I decided to read it. I have been following the Twitter handle of The Secret for a while and I was just waiting to get my hands on the book. This is the first time I have read about the law of attraction and I’m really intrigued. I’m also in the middle of the movie at the moment. For the past few days, I’ve just been re-reading parts of the book and researching more on how to use the secret. I think practicing it could really help me as it has helped so many others. If you haven’t read this book yet, I highly recommend it.

2. Tips For Happiness In The Shadow Of Cancer by Dr. Meenu Walia

Tips for Happiness in the Shadow of Cancer

Re-reads

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

Wuthering Heights

I read Wuthering Heights years ago, probably the year I first started reading and I’ve been wanting to re-read it for ages. I absolutely loved reading it again. There is something about this story that it just so appealing. The characters are horrible and the story is sad most of the time but the story is addictive. This is one of the best classics I have ever read.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K Rowling

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)

Re-read this for the sixth time! I’m almost always reading the Harry Potter books. I just read them when the mood strikes and I need to relax.
