Hello everyone!! 😀
Hope everyone is doing! 🙂 The Iftar gathering at our place went superb. Everybody loved the food and went home in a very happy mood, which made my parents days and did justice to all our efforts. 🙂 It was really fun and the food was really delicious. Mum’s the best cook ever. ❤ I don’t know in which century I will ever learn to cook as awesomely as she does, and with such ease. She makes cooking look like a child’s play.
Anyway! As I shamelessly admitted in my last post that I had ditch my Summer-Reads list for a bunch of books I borrowed from a close friend, Annayah, I would like to share their titles with you!! 😀
1- The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho
2- One Man’s Art (The MacGregors, #4) – Nora Roberts
3- Friends Forever – Danielle Steel
4- Have a Little Faith – Mitch Albom
5- The Last Lecture – Randy Pausch
6- Fallen – Lauren Kate
7- Thinner – Stephen King
8- I Don’t Know How She Does It – Allison Pearson
9- How To Be Popular – Meg Cabot
10- Remembrance – Danielle Steel
So far I am done with the first three books in the list. Of course I had to start it off by reading Paulo Coelho’s first. It’s more like a ritual to me. 😀 After all he is my favorite author!! xD
I liked them three, but on a different level each.
I wanted to read something girly hence Annayah suggested me I Don’t Know How She Does It and How to Be Popular. I hope they fill my appetite for something fun, humorous and girlish. I think I remember reading a bit of How To Be Popular a few years back and found it a little boring. Let’s see how I find it now.
I really wanted to read Stephen King as I have just read one book by him and disliked it a lot. But I want to give myself a second chance with his work. Maybe I just got on with the wrong book of his to start with. Like some people say the read Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and never liked it but loved all his other books. I am biased about Coelho though. 😛 I love all his work. Except for The Winner Stands Alone. Though I did end up liking one character, Jasmine, and branded her one my favorite from all Coelho’s characters.
Fallen’s cover is really beautiful. 😛 Annayah liked it so yes I wanted to read it too. Mitch Albom is another of my really favorite writers. 🙂 That’s why his book made it to the list. And then Annayah suggested me The Last Lecture.
I took Remembrance before I borrowed all these books. I wanted to read Danielle Steel because it had been really long I didn’t read a novel by her. I had only read one, Accident, which was good and a very long time back. Plus I have this really cute person called Niall’s Mofo, who wrote that Bruno Mars Fan Fiction for me, and her best friend Izzie, who is just as adorable as Niall’s Mofo. They are HUGE fans of Dianelle Steel and wanted me to read her again. 😀 So yeaaah!!! xD
For now I think I will take a little break from reading. I am worried I will screw my eyes. So I am going to lay a little off. Plus I have an Iftar gathering to go to tomorrow and one again on Wednesday. Then prolly we are inviting some guests for Iftar on Thursday. So I think it’s going to be a busy week again and I wont have much time to do anything at all. I hope it’s a fun week though. 🙂
~Keep Calm & Read On ❤
