I read this book today. I started reading this book side by side with ”Nights in Rodanthe” ( I think there is no chance to finish ¬†”Nights in Rodanthe” soon, some how I end up reading some other novels in between ūüė¶ )

The story line is ¬†about¬†Holly, a 29-year-old Irish woman, who is¬†struggling¬†to lead her life as Gerry, her husband dies of a brain tumor. As they joked before she gets 10 letters from him to get her through the situation she is¬†facing, once he is gone. Its her fight to get back to her life and feel happy again. Her friends Sharon, Denise, and John are very supportive but somehow she finds it hard to move on. I liked the way how story ended, becuase I was expecting Holly to fall in love with Daniel but it didn’t go that way. I am still thinking how a mature person like Daniel can fall for drama queen Laura. But anyways its good for Holly, who deserved more.

I cried throughout the book and felt so sorry for Holly. (Please keep tissues near by when you are reading this ūüôā ) I enjoyed reading this wonderful novel.¬†Even though¬†i watched the movie long back and I knew the story, I enjoyed reading each and every line of this book.

Archie comic series are my favorite comics. I was so crazy about reading these books(now also I read it but not often). I like all characters, the way they are, their lifestyle and way of thinking.

Archie Andrews is a handsome carefree guy, a good flirt, a typical teenage boy. I like Betty Cooper a lot She is kind hearted girl. I always wanted Archie to love Betty but some how he ends up with Veronica, a rich girl. Other characters like Jughead, Moose, Reggie, Dilton are wonderful too.

This is not only entertainment provider but also teaches good values to the teenagers. Characters of this comics  are always against alcohol and drugs.

(I don’t own any of these photos)

There is a garage band called ¬†The¬†Archie’s¬†founded by Archie Andrews, Reggie,¬†Mantle, and Jughead Jones all teen frictional characters of the Archie comic series. Here is my¬†favorite¬†song from this band.

Reading a book is not an easy task. People may think what is there in reading a book, it only needs time. No its not true! Reading is a form of ¬†art, a passion which comes from inside. You may just read a book if you are not interested and still finish it off. But reading a book by taking it to your soul is tough. I have seen people saying,”Dude! how can you read books? Whenever I open a book I fall asleep, I cant even read a page properly”. ¬†They think its kinda cool when they hate books. I came across many who didn’t read any book, other than their academic books. Everybody cant read books and see it close to heart. It needs lot of ¬†things than time (a person who reads will know it)

Books ¬†brings happiness to me, even though I read tragedy I feel joy of reading inside me (May be I am a freak ūüôā or the feeling is common¬†among all book lovers).Its a passion just like my cooking and nail art hobbies. According to me everybody should have some or the other hobby to feel good. Every good hobby is something which is important in life.

I am ¬†not saying everyone should turn into a book worm. What I meant is read a book and see, ¬†its a nice feeling. Go out with a girl/ boy who read books you will know the difference. They are so lively and understanding. Not only reading try to get any good hobby which will make you happy. But still I would say – ‘Dare to read a book’!

I wanted to¬†read¬†this book from a long back. To read this, I skipped reading ”Nights in Rodanthe” which I planned to read by this week starting. I dont ¬†know why I took this long gap to read ”Oliver’s ¬†Story ” (sequel to ”Love story”) after reading ”Love story” years back. ¬†I am a huge fan of Erich Segal. till now I have read two books written by him, and this is third one.

This story is about Oliver after his wife Jenny’s death. Here you can see him struggling to cope up with things in life without Jenny’s presence. ¬†He tries to move on somehow and gives a chance to a lady called¬†Marcie, but feels that no one could and would replace Jenny in his heart becuase their love was for life time. ¬†Slowly¬†he starts liking his father whom he hated the most before. ¬†He takes over the¬†business¬†and tries to stay calm, how Jenny wanted ¬†him to be like,¬†when she was alive.

A wonderful story, I liked it a lot. Its not that¬†lengthy too. I regret for not reading this earlier . I have to watch the movie soon ūüôā

Finally finished ‘Bonded’. The good news ¬†is that its not the last book in this series.¬†It’s just as good as the other three books in this series. ‘Bonded’ ¬†reveals kind of link between all books. I wanted to read this book very badly, so read it in office as well (pretending to work). I read it online( so that I could easily pretend as if I am working on some serious issue on my lap top) through ”Feed books” where downloading facility is available for free. Author of the book Nicky¬†Charles is a great writer, I love her imagination and writing skills. When I told her that I am reading her book in between work¬†¬†( through face book page ) she told me to ¬†be careful and not to get caught by boss ūüôā I liked it so much that she interacts with her book lovers¬†personally.

Bonded starts with some characters who never appeared in previous books. But once you start reading you know where its going and how its linked. There is romance between Reno a tough Enforcer for Lycan Link  and  Brandi , a DC officer. Even though they end up having sex only twice, what is that bond between them which drives them always closer? Brandi remembers nothing about bonding, but how it had happen?

As usual, wonderful novel from author Nicky Charles. In between I felt¬†little¬†boring ¬†but later that faded away soon. Waiting for next book ūüôā

There are two books in my incomplete list.  I keep saying I will read later, but always end up keeping it aside.

  • The whispering road by Livi Michael

This is ¬†a story about brother and sister, who are escaping from where they were treated as servants. I always end up reading til they escape and meet crazy people in some place. I read¬†twice¬†til there ¬†(almost half of the story). I have no idea how and why I cant read this book. I¬†don’t¬†find it that interesting but it not that boring too.

  • The Golden by Lucius Shepard ¬†¬†

This is about some ancient vampire and their life style and rule. I read few pages and felt it very difficult to understand. Kept trying for 4-5 times but still¬†couldn’t¬†read it.

Hope to read this two books soon. May be once I finish my books in ‘yet to read list’. Tel me about your incomplete books ¬† if you have any ūüôā

Somehow it skipped out of my memory.  I dunno how can I forget this wonderful romance?  I read it almost 2 years back. Its an amazing love story filled with romance.

Coming to the story Josh Donovan is a popular singer with huge fan group. Even thogh he is famous and rich, he still misses something and some memories haunt him. Libby Forsythe and Josh Donovan  grew up as orphans  in an orphanage with all facilities but Josh always felt the need to runaway.  But when they planned a getaway, Josh was left with a lone dusty guitar. She had chetaed him, atleast thats what he thought. After many years when they both met will he fall in love with her again? Will she able to digest the fact that he is still ashamed of being orphan? How can they fall in love if they are so different form each other?

A woncderful romantic novel, which will stir the feelings inside you. If you want a classic romance its a good book to read.

¬†This week finally I finished the book. ¬†Managed to read it in between work (thank god¬†didn’t¬†get¬†caught¬†by boss).

”Girls of Riyadh” is the story of 4 modern women, living in Saudi Arabia, and their struggle with navigating the divergence between romantic love and the reality of arranged marriage. It is in the form of E mails sent by a¬†stranger¬†to all possible mail id’s with out revealing name. I wanted to read this book from a long time, I am always interested to know about life style and culture from different part of world. I never been to¬†Saudi so I have no idea whether the story¬†resembles¬†the real fact or not. ¬†How much of it is true, only a true girl of Riyadh may be able to tell. But I will conclude it as a different type of writing which will not fail to entertain you. But only read if you like to read about ¬†life of ¬†people who belongs to entirely different life style,culture and society.

¬†Four friends, Sadeem, Gamrah, Lamees and Michele, fall in love, get married, get their hearts broken, pursue careers and live in all difficulties, share happiness and sadness as real friends.¬†I dont wanna be a spoiler here by telling the story,¬†I won’t tell you what happens to any of them. Its worth reading once ūüôā

I read ‘Thanks for the memories’ 4 months back when I had nothing else to read. I didn’t know this author’s writing style because I never read any of her books before.¬†I wanted to read P.S I love you but somehow I ended up watching the movie and never got a chance to read the book. I¬†usually read the book first then watch the movie. Now P.S I love you is in my ‘Yet to read list’. ūüôā

Now coming to ‘Thanks for the memories’ I wasn’t sure how I ¬†felt about this book in the beginning, but after the first couple ¬†of chapters I was hooked. In the beginning I felt it boring but later it kept me on my toes.Imagine, if you got a blood transfusion and with the stranger’s blood you get his memory too. Yeah! its something unbelivable, but this is the main concept in this book. Even thogh its nowhere near to reality I liked the story. The book also highlights the¬† real need for people to give blood, and how it truly can save a person‚Äôs life.

Its a story with  right mix of heartache, romance and magic to keep readers hooked. Here she so realistically describes everything. Now coming to the story part Joyce Conway remembers many things which she is not sure how she knows. Justin Hitchcock is divorced, lonely and restless. He meets with an attractive doctor who forces him to donate blood. When Joyce leaves hospital after a terrible accident, with broken marriage and broken heart. Starts to live with her father, then all this memories of unknown things starts coming.  Finally she will find out -what are these  memories and belongs to whom?

Its a good novel with lots of feeling and dramatical twists. Its worth reading I would recommend this book ūüôā

What a name for a book?? Wow.. I was curius to know what is¬†it about. I always fall for fancy names and book covers ūüôā So I bought it last year with two more books which I have already mentioned in my previous posts- “I too had a love story” and “Anything for you ma’am” (books form Indian authors) all three best sellers.

This book is a confused love story which has unexpected twist till the end. It was ok, not a dissapointment. Its written by 2 authors Durjoy Datta and Maanvi Ahuja. Coming to the story it is quite simple and well expected story from a guy who was just a fresh engineering graduate from a metropolitan city college in the year 2008. Deb always tries to find the best out of his girl friends and fails in it but one day he comes to a situation where he  finally finds his love. This is a book which contains at least one coinciding incident from any engineering graduate life starting from his college life to his final career life.

There are sequels to his first book,I would want to read it someday are-

Now That You’re Rich … Let’s Fall In Love by Durjoy Datta and Maanvi Ahuja.

She broke up, I didnt!.. I just kissed someone else by Durjoy Datta

Ohh Yes, I am single.. and so is my girl friend by Durjoy Datta and Neeti Rustagi

You were my crush… Til you said I love you¬†¬†by Durjoy Datta and Orvana Ghai.

First book was a good time pass read ūüôā Hope to read his other books soon.
