In the show Gilmore Girls, when Rory said, “I just want to be sure that I see…something” when Headmaster Charleston asked her why she wanted to be a journalist, I really felt that.
For the last six months or so, my mind has been an anxious mess bouncing between two thoughts: I’m gonna be 22 and have decades of youthful experiences in front of me and I’m turning 22 and I can’t believe I still haven’t done this and I still don’t have that.
Why did turning 22 hold a special meaning for me?
This happens, right? We come across a quotation by Sylvia Plath, Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, Anaïs Nin, or any legendary figure in fact, and we read it and think—that’s it—that’s the truth. What they said hits some part of us that finds relatability with that thought, and coupled with their literary prowess, we take their thought as a true fact about life. We internalize it.
Today I wanted to talk a little bit about underrates books. We all have some books that we love just a little more than others. There are books that very few people know about. There are books that discuss a very important topic but it fails to reach many people. These are underrated books. We should all make an effort to share with each other the books we feel are underrated.
In terms of books acquired, this month was a good one. Click on the names of the books to go to their Goodreads page. Let’s get started-
I bought 3 books this month from Amazon.
Hi guys! How are you all doing?
So I’m taking reading a bit slowly these days. This is because I don’t have many review copies that need to be immediately finished and I’m trying to get some studying done.
If you guys didn’t know, I read multiple books at a time. Earlier it used to be because I was already reading a physical book, ebook and an audiobook but now, it is more because I can’t seem to finish a book unless I force myself too. I quickly lose interest in a book and due to this, I have 7 unfinished books at the moment. I decided to share these with you today so let’s get started-
Hello everyone! How are you all doing? I present to you all a little late August Wrap-Up.
So I decided to slow down a bit and focus more on my studies than reading and blogging. It’s my last year of school and I had exams from 11th September so it was high time I studied. Also, my laptop broke down so I couldn’t really write much. But guess what happened? I fractured my toe. Yes, the smallest toe on my right foot. It might not sound like a big deal and I thought so too. But apparently, I am not allowed to walk and they’ve wrapped up my whole foot till my calf with a huge plaster. I have to wear it for 3 weeks and I can’t walk much for the first week atleast. Because of this, I can’t even give my damn exams.
Anyways, I’m sure you guys don’t want to read about my toe-whining so I’ll just tell you what’s upcoming. I may get a laptop in September so there might be more posts. I am trying my hardest to focus the most on my studies but reading and blogging are basically my life so I can’t help it okay?
Now let us finally begin with my August wrap-up.
Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well 🙂
As you might know, me and Mridula started a series of weekly posts called Bookish Discovery This Week. We have decided to not make this a weekly thing as both of us are unable to post every week.
So I welcome you all to my Bookish Discovery #3.
I recently went to Kamla Nagar market in Delhi to buy some books and this is what I got.
I acquired a lot of amazing books in July so lets get started! Click on the names of the book to go to their Goodreads page.
