My Classics TBR

A major part of the books I own are classics, and a huge portion of that part is unread.

I say that classical literature is one my favorite genres. That is mainly because I have enjoyed almost every classic I have read so far. I love the long stories, the complex plots and the beautiful writing. However, I cant deny the fact that classics take much more time and effort to read than other books. Because of this, I always lag behind on reading them.

Today I want to share with you all some classic books that are sitting on my shelf unread.

My Biggest Book Haul- April 2017 

I said in my first book haul post that I don’t do monthly book hauls because I don’t collect a lot of books in a month

That changed last month.

I accumulated a total of 14 books in April. That in itself is more than the books I collected in the whole of 2016. Six of these books I have already talked about in my used books haul post in the middle of April. I’m going to tell you a little bit about the rest of them.        

April 2017 Wrap-Up

n

April was an okayish month for me in terms of reading. The first two weeks I wasn’t reading much and my school started after that so it got quite busy. The good thing is that I managed to read 6 books and that, good collection too. Two books had been on my TBR list for a long time, two were review books and the remaining two were audiobooks, one of which was a classic. I’m not going to tell all of my thoughts on these books as I plan to do reviews of most of them.                                                                                                                 

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon Wrap-Up

Hi everyone! I don’t know if any of you noticed, but I haven’t posted anything for the last five days and I hate myself for that. It was mainly because I didn’t pre-write any posts and it’s hard for me to write on weekdays while school is going on. Anyways, I don’t plan on this happening again.

This weekend on the 29th April was Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon and this was my first time participating in it. If you don’t know, it is a readathon where everyone starts at the time around the world and reads for 24 hours while sharing their progress. I must say I had a lot of fun doing this and I’m already anticipating the next one in October.                   

Mudmen – The Quest For Humanity by Shitij Sharma (Book Review)

MUDMEN - The Quest For Humanity

Genre: Fiction, Fantasy, Post-Apocalyptic

My Rating: 4.5 stars

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Mudmen is the second book by author Shitij Sharma. It is a stark contrast from his first book The Girl From Rostov which is a thriller. The story begins when a man wipes out the whole world and creates a new one with a magical quill and creatures called mudmen are born. He hopes to create a better world but some things go wrong and the new creatures created are not what he expected.
