Hello, humanoids. How are you cuties doing??? How are your life and your family??? If you want to know about my family then let me tell you, they are awesome. My grandmother is recovering well and she has even started fighting with me these days and that’s a definite sign that she is more than better now🤣🤣🤣. I am happy that she is recovering so well and my parents are awesome too. I don’t know why I am telling you this but nevermind, just read on🙊🙊. So let’s just start with this haul, shall we???
So I had bought these books about 3 months back but I was so busy that I couldn’t post about them. Bookchor, an Indian bookselling website, had put up a sale where they gave 10 books free for 10 books and the books there are super cheap so I bought 10 thinking I will get 10 nice books free too so let’s go first and check out the 10 books that I bought and then I will do another post where I will talk about the 10 other free books. Let’s go people.
1. Horrid Henry by Francesca Simon.
Horrid Henry tries to be perfect for one day; he learns to dance, quarrels with his arch-enemy Moody Margaret and goes on holiday.
I bought two books by horrid Henry as I wanted to relive my childhood and it was mindblowing. I am yet to read this book which I will be starting soon although my soon never comes but let’s just say soon🤣🤣.
2. Horrid Henry’s Underpants by Francesca Simon.
Horrid Henry makes a deal with his parents in return for eating his veggies; accidentally wears girls’ underwear to school; tries to prove he is sicker than his brother; and writes the meanest thank-you cards ever (and makes money on it too).
I read this book and I felt so happy reliving my childhood days when my library had only two series of books; Jack and Jill & Horrid Henry. So when I read this book, I loved reading it so much. It took me back to my old days and I understood how bad this book is for kids as it teaches bad manners🤣🤣.
3. Goosebumps Horrorland: The Scream Of The Haunted Mask by R.L. Stine.
The Mask Is Back!
WEAR AND SCARE! What should Carly Beth be for Halloween this year? TERRIFIED! Late at night, an ugly green mask is mysteriously calling out to her and ugly green masks don’t like to be ignored. If Carly Beth survives the night, even a scary theme park might sound like a vacation. Or maybe not! At HorrorLand, every night is Halloween. And those monster masks? They aren’t masks at all. FACE YOUR FEARS!
I am in love with the Goosebumps series and I can’t get enough of it that’s for sure. I love reading horror novels and this is perfect for me as it’s so fun to read. I read one book of the Goosebumps series and I decided to buy the whole series. I am so excited to read it. This will start soon too🤣🤣🤣.
4. One Night @ The Call Center by Chetan Bhagat.
Six friends work nights at a call center in India, providing technical support for a major U.S. appliance corporation. Skilled in patience–and accent management–they help American consumers keep their lives running. Yet behind the headsets, everybody’s heart is on the line.
Shyam (Sam to his callers) has lost his self-confidence after being dumped by the girl who just so happens to be sitting next to him. Priyanka’s domineering mother has arranged for her daughter’s upscale marriage to an Indian man in Seattle. Eshalongs to be a model but discovers it’s a horizontal romp to the runway. Lost, dissatisfied Vroom has high ideals, but compromises them by talking on the phone to idiots each night. Traditional Radhika has just found out that her husband is sleeping with his secretary. And Military Uncle (nobody knows his real name) sits alone working the online chat.
They all try to make it through their shifts–and maintain their sanity–under the eagle eye of a boss whose ego rivals his incompetence. But tonight is no ordinary night. Tonight is Thanksgiving in America: Appliances are going haywire, and the phones are ringing off their hooks. Then one call, from one very special caller, changes everything.
I finished reading this book and I will be posting the review real soon🤣🤣. The review will be out when I have some time. It was a nice story but somehow boring. I will elaborate in the review so don’t worry. The review will be out in a few years😜😜.
5. The 3
Mistakes Of My Life by Chetan Bhagat.
In late-2000, a young boy in Ahmedabad called Govind dreamt of having a business. To accomodate his friends Ish and Omi’s passion, they open a cricket shop. Govind’s wants to make money and thinks big. Ish is all about nurturing Ali, the batsman with a rare gift. Omi knows his limited capabiltiies and just wants to be with his friends. However, nothing comes easy in a turbulent city. To realize their goals, they will have to face it all – religious politics, earthquakes, riots, unacceptable love and above all, their own mistakes. Will they make it? Can an individual’s dreams overcome the nightmares offered by real life? Can we succeed despite a few mistakes?
I can never read this book in my life because of the movie. I have loved the film star Sushant Singh Rajput since I saw this movie for the first time and if you are an Indian you know he did not commit suicide but he was killed. The case is still a mystery but we all know the truth don’t we??? And after seeing all this news, I can’t read this book. I can’t read his character because it’s impossible for me to imagine he is no more and he had to go through so much😞😞. Let’s leave this topic here and go on. This book will just be a souvenir for me.
A remembrance of Sushant Singh Rajput.
6. The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain.
Take a lighthearted, nostalgic trip to a simpler time, seen through the eyes of a very special boy named Tom Sawyer. It is a dreamlike summertime world of hooky and adventure, pranks and punishment, villains and first love, filled with memorable characters. Adults and young readers alike continue to enjoy this delightful classic of the promise and dreams of youth from one of America’s most beloved authors.
I will be reading this book for my 88 classics challenge. I am so excited to read this one as people have been saying good things about this book. I can’t wait to read it!!!!
7. A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare.
Shakespeare’s intertwined love polygons begin to get complicated from the start–Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia but she only has eyes for Lysander. Bad news is, Hermia’s father wants Demetrius for a son-in-law. On the outside is Helena, whose unreturned love burns hot for Demetrius. Hermia and Lysander plan to flee from the city under cover of darkness but are pursued by an enraged Demetrius (who is himself pursued by an enraptured Helena). In the forest, unbeknownst to the mortals, Oberon and Titania (King and Queen of the faeries) are having a spat over a servant boy. The plot twists up when Oberon’s head mischief-maker, Puck, runs loose with a flower which causes people to fall in love with the first thing they see upon waking. Throw in a group of labourers preparing a play for the Duke’s wedding (one of whom is given a donkey’s head and Titania for a lover by Puck) and the complications become fantastically funny.
I read this book for my Read8ber Readathon. I didn’t understand it but I did get to know how hard it is to read the old literature and now I will sit down with a dictionary to reread it soon. Hope I like it this time🤞🤞.
8. The Woodlanders by Thomas Hardy.
In this classically simple tale of the disastrous impact of outside life on a secluded community in Dorset, now in a new edition, Hardy narrates the rivalry for the hand of Grace Melbury between a simple and loyal woodlander and an exotic and sophisticated outsider. Betrayal, adultery, disillusion, and moral compromise are all worked out in a setting evoked as both beautiful and treacherous. The Woodlanders, with its thematic portrayal of the role of social class, gender, and evolutionary survival, as well as its insights into the capacities and limitations of language, exhibits Hardy’s acute awareness of his era’s most troubling dilemmas.
I am not very interested in reading this novel as I am not much into romance and tragedies but I will have to read it for the 88 classics challenge as I accidentally bought it 🤣🤣. This is like a Classic Tragedy in my life. I had no idea I had added this book to my cart but guess what!!!! It’s there!!!! So I will read it eventually🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️.
If anybody has read this book, please inform me how it is.
9. Monday Mourning by Kathy Reichs.
The secrets of the dead are in her hands.
The bones of three young women are unearthed in the basement of a Montreal pizza parlor, and forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan has unsolved murder on her mind as she examines the shallowly buried remains. Coming up against a homicide cop who is convinced the dead have been entombed on the site for centuries, Tempe perseveres, even with her own relationship with Detective Andrew Ryan at a delicate turning point. In the lab, the clean, well-perserved bones offer few clues. But when Carbon 14 confirms her hunch that these were recent deaths despite the antique buttons found near the bodies, Tempe’s probing must produce answers quickly to stop a killer whose grisly handiwork has seen the light of day.
I am dying to start this book😍😍😍. I have wanted to read Kathy Reichs’ book. I am really happy that I got this book so cheap. I will be reading this after my current read and that is…
10. Blood Runs Cold by Alex Barclay.
When an FBI agent is found dead on the white slopes of Quandary Peak in Colorado, a brilliant but volatile agent is drafted in from Denver to lead the investigation. As she fights personal demons, pressure from Washington and dwindling leads, the case stalls and her career falters. But as summer comes, Quandary Peak exposes new secrets.
This book!!!! Yes, I have been reading Blood Runs Cold by Alex Barclay. It’s going very slow and boring right now. I am just in the starting so can’t say much but I hope it picks pace soon or else I might stop reading it as I need a break from romance books and I am looking for a tough book that will get me out of my reading slump. Hope and really hope this book turns out to be nice. I am a huge fan of Alex Barclay, her last novel Darkhouse was a mind boiling novel. I almost stayed up till 7 am reading it. So I have super high expectations from this one.
So that’s it, people. I hope you liked this post. It took me a long creating it and the second part will be out soon. I am aiming to bring it out by the day after tomorrow. Hope to see you soon. I will be answering comments and engaging in posts this week so please don’t mind my absence.
Have a nice day. I hope to see you all soon and until then…
