Hi Everyone, :))
How are you all doing? 🙂
I am on a major reading spree these days. It always happens with me. When I get hooked on to reading, I read good 5-7 books in a go and then I don’t read for a while. The case is quite different with Mr, Husband; he reads 12 months a year, 7 days a week. 😛
So here are my quick reviews on the books I have read in the past couple of days. 🙂
The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith / JK Rowling: She does the most amazing story telling. It is the second book of the detective Cormoron Strike. The book is so compelling with all its twists and turns. It will keep you hooked on to it till the very last page. Can’t wait to read more stories from the author. MUST Read.
IT by Alexa Chung : A very frivolously written book. Alexa Chung is street style star and I think people bought the book mainly because the book is written by ‘her’. I was so disappointed by the content of the book. The pictures didn’t have tags on them, you are somehow lost wondering who is who in the photograph. She talked about something than something else. There are not many tips that you could pick up from her. Basically I pretty much ended up knowing nothing about her in the end. If you have to read one good book on fashion / life of someone from fashion, read Grace by Grace Coddington.
Looking for Alaska by John Green : This was my first book by John Green. I went to buy ‘The Fault in our Stars’ but that was sold out so I bought this. This book has its highs and lows but is not gripping enough. It’s a little dragging, you would just want to reach the end very fast.
I think he did an EPIC job at The Fault in our Stars. I have watched the movie and my friends on Instagram insisted that I read the book as well. I am yet to finish it but I think he has come a looong way in his writing from his first book. Beautifully written. And probably would rip a piece of your heart way. You’d remember this book always. It’s one of your ‘To Kill a Mocking bird’ and ‘The Notebook’ kind of a book that you would want to read again and again.
Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg : She is the COO of Facebook. It is a self help book and a sort of written with a feminist tone. I think women who work in a corporate sector should give this book a read. This might help you take a lot of initiative, get over your fears in the male dominated society and might help you excel in your carrier. Good advice, and a slow read. Mostly you’d know the stuff but if always makes more sense when someone else tells you the same thing.Not the most exciting one but guess you can learn a thing of a two from the lady who has been there and done that. 🙂
So what are you currently reading? 🙂
