Books This Week 5

Been a while since I did this series. Time seems to have grown a pair of wings & is flying like crazy. Anyhoo, these are the books I finished reading

The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up- Marie Kondo

This one's an utterly hyped up book. The author recommends decluttering by category not by room & to discard first, organize later. Also discard everything that doesn't "spark joy" in you. She has a specific order in which decluttering has to take place & claims that you'll have to do it just once. It sounds too good to be true but the success of the KonMari technique lies in how much you can throw away. I don't see this working for me.

Casual Vacancy - J. K Rowling

Absolutely loved this one. I was a bit prejudiced about the author thinking she could only write fantasy. Never did I think that she could come up with something so dark & gritty. I was hooked from the beginning & thoroughly enjoyed the suspense. You know it's a good book when you finish reading it & you still feel like you are living in the make believe place inside the book. This is one of those. Go for it.

Mrs Funnybones- Twinkle Khanna

Funny, funny stories from the land of celebrities. This is an easy read- you don't have to invest too much time or attention. One time read.

I don't usually finish every post with a question but have you read any good books lately? I really, really want to know (Yeah! Even more than which lipstick shade Deepika wore recently) See ya.


  1. hey girl, how goes. I am reading a book called Fearie Tales: Stories of the Grimm and Gruesome a collection of horror stories, that generally put a new twist on the Grimm Brothers' tales. Love these kind of books and how. I am also finally getting to read Wolf Hall by Hillary Mantel.

    1. Wolf Hall has been on my list since forever. Will add Fearie Tales to it too. My list seems to keep growing no matter how much I read. Thanks for the recco. XO
