The Bedtime Book Tag!

It has been a long time since I was tagged to do THE BEDTIME BOOK TAG by Raven @Dreamy Addictions. I read her post and I was sure this wasn’t going to be easy for me. I don’t like to categorize my books, I am actually bad at it, deciding which book made me feel what particular emotion is a difficult job for me because there are so many emotions to a book that I can’t tone it down to one. I am bad at differentiating.

Yet I typed out half the post and let it sit, thinking I would get around doing it soon but then just kept pushing it. :/ Then, Rosema @A Reading Writer tagged me again for this tag. Reminding me that I had to do it. But I still didn’t.

Yesterday, Maryan @1booklife tagged me for this tag and then I decided this was it, no more reasons and no more putting it off. I told Maryan that I was going to do it yesterday but went to sleep.

Thank you Matt @ Matt and his cats for tagging me again and reminding me how much this particular tag made me think. 😛

I am hopeless! :/ I am so sorry for being a lazy bum. 😛 Thank you so much, you three lovely ladies, for tagging me though! 🙂 😀 ❤ I will try my best to answer these questions. (I know I am too bad at it but it is supposed to be for fun, right? 😛 )


 

1. A Book That Kept You Up All Night Reading

There are many, many, many books because well, I mostly don’t put down my books easily. So, I will select the most recent one, that is Deception Point by Dan Brown. (This is actually the last book I have read this month because then college happened and I haven’t got time for reading since then. 😥 😥 )


2. A Book That Made You Scared To Sleep

To be honest, there’s no such book because I haven’t ventured into the paranormal genre yet and then too I doubt I would ever be scared to go to sleep because of a story. I am the kind who laughs during horror movies. 🙂 😛


 

3. A Book That Made You Go To Sleep

I will select the most recent book for this too. It is The other side of midnight by Sidney Sheldon. It was less because of the book and more because of me being tired I guess but I surely wasn’t eager on completing it either.


4. A Book That Left You Tossing and Turning All Night in Anticipation of its Release

Umm… I have never exactly tracked the dates down for any of the book’s release. But there’s only one book I was waiting for. Not because of the book, there was no news about the book actually. It is Bellman and Black. The only reason for my eagerness being the book is written by the author of my favorite novel, The Thirteenth Tale, Diane Setterfield.

I didn’t come to know about the book when it was released because it was released almost after 7 years from the first book by the author. I haven’t read it yet because of the reviews but I think the reviews are unfair, everyone is comparing the book to the first book by the author. You can’t judge a book based on another. Every book has its own flavor!


5. A Book That Has Your Dream Boyfriend

I don’t have a dream boyfriend but for the fun of this question, I will select few of the books that according to me have pretty decent guys. 😉

7. A Book That Reminds You of Nighttime

This is a book that I read 5 years ago. My first science fiction: Breakfast with the ones you love by Eliot Fintushel. 

Breakfast with the Ones You Love

And also one of my recent read: These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.

 

 

 

 


8. A Book That Had a Nightmarish Cliffhanger

I am not that into series, I mostly read series when I have the whole series so that I am not left hanging but I guess I will go with Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard.

9. A Book That You Actually Dreamed About

None, to be honest. :/


10. A Book Monster that You Would Not Want to Find Under Your Bed

Umm… more than monsters I am afraid of people. I wouldn’t want any of the backstabbers and double-crossers, from all the books that I’ve read, anywhere near me.


 

Many people have already done this tag, so it was difficult to search people to be tagged but yet I checked out a few blogs to see if they have done it or not. If you have already done it then I am sorry I may probably not be so good at researching. 😛

 

Happy Book Lovers Day!

So, I was on Facebook discussing about my college admission with my friends when I stumbled upon this picture on my newsfeed.

I had no idea there was a day dedicated to us, so out of curiosity I googled it. 😛

❤ ❤ ❤ Happy Book Lovers Day to all you guys! ❤ ❤ ❤  

This was the thing that made my day today. I haven’t had a chance to post anything in 3 days, today being the 4th and I missed my blog so much. I missed reading your posts and comment chatting with you guys. :/

The days have been damn hectic… 2 days ago college listings came out and I came to know the college I will be studying in and the admission processes have been a mess since then. I have been running here and there, getting this document, searching that document and I am kind of frustrated right now.

I have 3 tags pending and my August Bingo Book-a-thon is going nowhere, my reading is suffering. 😥

I wish for this to get over soon, so that I can get back to my reading and blogging and not to forget getting settled in college. 😛 I am not that anxious for the start of a new college life because I have some of my old college friends with me here. 😉

My birthday is in 4 days and all the chaos are going to get the best of my day.

I started this post to share my love with you guys and ended up ranting. 😛 I am an idiot! 😛

July Wrap-Up 2015!

AHH! FINALLY! WHAT A RELIEF! 

The month will be over till the time I finish writing this post. It’s 10 minutes to 12 and I thought I should stop reading and record of this month’s reading experience. All in all it was a great month. I planned on reading 15 books this month despite this month being utterly unpredictable. You can check the books I planned to read here.

Although I didn’t finish the books I decided to, I read 14.5 books out of 15. Yes, you read it right. I failed with just half a book left but I read 3 books apart from the list. So that makes the total books read in this month to be 17.5! ❤ 2 and a half books more than I planned but I still regret not completing that half book while rejoicing the fact that I did well for the unorganized mess that I am. 😛 Although my sleeping and eating schedule is badly tampered by my reading I have no regrets. 😉 If I would have been more thoughtful I would have completed that half book too but it’s okay. I had fun, that’s what’s more important, isn’t it? 😀 😀

Here are the books I read in July-

  1. Fifty Shades Of Grey by E.L.James. 2/5 ☆Screenshot_2015-08-01-00-47-37-1
  2. Fifty Shades Darker by E.L.James. 2/5 ☆
  3. Corner Of Paradise by Leonard Holton. 3/5 ☆
  4. Fifty Shades Freed by E.L.James. 3/5  ☆
  5. Confessions from the pumpkin patch by Karlyle Tomms. 3/5 ☆
  6. A Bend In the Road by Nicholas Sparks. 5/5 ☆
  7. The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks. 5/5 ☆
  8. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. 4/5 ☆
  9. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. 5/5 
  10. Message in a Bottle by Nicholas Sparks. 5/5 ☆
  11. If Tommorrow Comes by Sidney Sheldon. 5/5 ☆
  12. If I Stay by Gayle Forman. 2/5 ☆
  13. Windmills of the Gods by Sidney Sheldon. 5/5 ☆
  14. Are you afraid of the dark? by Sidney Sheldon. 5/5 ☆
  15. A stranger in the middle by Sidney Sheldon. 2/5 ☆
  16. Rage of Angels by Sidney Sheldon. 3/5 ☆
  17. Other side of midnight by Sidney Sheldon.  2/5 ☆

I would have loved to add Master of the games to the list but half book doesn’t count. It will make it’s way in August’s wrap up despite the book-a-thon I am taking part in. 😀

This month has taught me to plan less than the time I have in hand so that I don’t regret not being able to complete my goal because of being winded up in other important works. Reading more books than you planned can make you happy and reading less can make you sad. I have mixed feelings. Happy 🙂 because I exceeded the number I planned and sad because I didn’t exactly complete my TBR list. :/

 

What do you guys think?

 

3 Days for 3 Books!

I failed! 😥 :/ 😥

 

Yesterday, I was supposed to complete reading A Stranger in the Mirror by Sidney Sheldon. I say yesterday because it is already 2 hours into today. How this happened, you ask?

Simple… I’VE NO FREAKIN’ CLUE! 

I wasted my morning watching cake decorating videos and the whole night before that too. Why did I do that? I DON”T KNOW! I DON”T EVEN BAKE!  The only time I baked a cake was three years ago for christmas, THAT’S IT! (Although, I must admit all my friends loved it and still mention it. That’s a proud moment for me! 😉 😀 )

I read through the day and then around 6 pm decided that a bath would feel good and then heaven knows what struck me, I decided to get under the sheets for a few minutes with towel still wrapped on my head and started reading. I was too damn comfortable and you can guess what happened… I FELL ASLEEP! 

I woke up just now, with towel still perfectly wrapped around my head, that is around 1:45 am and as soon as I saw the time I realized I didn’t accomplish my goal and needed to rant and post too. So here I am, killing two birds with a stone! 😉

 

I need to calm down now and start reading so that I can finish reading the book, that I was supposed to, before dawn and then I will start today’s book. I haven’t decided yet which of 3 remaining books will I be reading today but that’s for later.

I hope you guys don’t do this… if you do… Well, then, welcome aboard! 😛 😛

5 Days left to read 5 Books!

This month is the first time I made a to be read list– July 2015 TBR! 😀

Before this, I used to read whatever I wanted to, whatever interested me in the moment but I decided to give pre-deciding the month’s reading a try. I already knew this month was going to be a busy one, yet I thought that I would be able to read 15 books this month.

Easy said than done. I was on a great start and then everything went downhill. :/

The mid-July was the most confusing time for me. I was torn in between what I should be doing and I wanted to… apparently it had something to do with my career and whatever decision I made would affect my future completely.

So, eventually I didn’t get much reading done. If you have read my July TBR list then you might be well aware of the fact that I was to read 7 of Sidney Sheldon books out of the 15 I planned. So, with only 7 days I left I took a look at my list and realized that I would have to read 1 book each day if I wanted to complete the challenge I set.

Then I did a thorough check of the list and realized that another book was left to be read and that made the total to 8. I felt that I was going to fail my first ever list.

Today pumped me with hope, I finished reading If tomorrow comes by Sidney Sheldon, which I had been reading for two days, in the morning. Then starting If I Stay by Gayle Forman seemed a good idea. I started it somewhere about 7 am and was done by 1 pm with too many breaks of course. (I am hungry all the time. 😛 )

By 2 pm I started Windmills of the Gods by Sidney Sheldon and was done with it by 5 pm. I am thinking about starting my 3rd book for the day, maybe I would be able to complete, at the very least, half of it.

Even if I don’t, today has been a good reading day. ❤ Counting from tomorrow, that is 27th July, I have 5 days left to read 5 books! I hope I get through and don’t disappoint myself. 😛 😛
