64. #SummerReading Round up for 2018

Welcome back to the 2nd rundown of #SummerReading roundup for 2018. For last year’s roundup, just click here.

Yes, I know it’s still blazing hot in most parts of the world, but in paper summer is coming to a close, schools are re-opening and the whole cycle of waking up at 6 begins again *sad face*.

However, as someone who actually hates summers, I had a pretty decent reading list this time and am pretty glad of all that I have read in these few months.

All the titles are linked to the original review except for the last three. I’m still working on their review.

  1. War & Peace by Leo Tolstoy:
  • Why: Russian History. Love. Drama. War. Betrayal. Death. And snow, and alot of winter. Perfect combo. Also I wanted to dive more into classics.
  1. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng:
  • Why: Honestly? Cause I heard Resse Witherspoon and Kerry Washington are making a TV series on it. Also, because it shook up the entire book community.
  1. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen:
  • Why: It had a purple cover. That’s why. And Jane Austen. OBVIOUSLY.
  1. Originals by Adam Grant:
  • Why: The title was eye-catching, he came highly recommended from one of my favourite authors aka Malcolm Gladwell.
  1. Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan:
  • Why: Watched the trailer of this movie. That’s all I’m gonna say.
  1. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman:
  • Why: Again, it was raved and raved by all the book bloggers and I couldn’t wait to read it after the many reviews on Goodreads. Truly eye-opening, heart breaking, and beautiful.
  1. China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan:
  • Why: I was curious as to what happened next in Crazy Rich Asians.
  1. Born a Crime by Trevor Noah:
  • Why: The title was interesting, Trevor Noah is witty and brutally honest. While reading it every single page held my attention. Every. Single.page.
  1. Men Without Women by Haruki Murakami:
  • Why: Cause I’m not a huge Murakami fan thought the problem was with me. Still not entirely convinced though.
  1. Three Daughters of Eve by Elif Shafak:
  • Why: Sucha personal book for me I felt an urge to read it again.

I highly recommend all of these books, where the above list is a mixture of classics, business Lit, Fiction, Non-Fiction, Biography, Short Stories, Comedy, Romance, Tragic and much more. Except for Rich China Girlfriend as it wasn’t as amazing as its predecessor aka Crazy Rich Asians.

Hope everyone had a lovely summer.
