Know your Bookish Terms 📚

Namo Namaha friends, as in every group, the bookish community too has its own set of jargon & frequently used words that might not be immediately obvious to newcomers. In this video I attempt to list out some such words so that you can jump right into the bookish community and feel welcome right away! 💖🌞

Which are some of the best audiobook options for Indians? My top 3 audiobooks options are #audible #scribd & #storytel . Which are yours?
I have tried & tested all 3 & storytel is my favourite, I also use audible a bit too.

Color me surprised. I definitely thought this would be a solid 5 🌟 read, but it isn't. I need to gather my thoughts to give a complete review, but for now it's a 4 🌟 book for me. It was great but not something that I'll be inclined to pick up again & reread. I definitely want to read the next book though.

This bk is well-catered to an Indian audience, which was amazing coz most of the bks I have read have almost always catered to an exclusively Western audience.

Additionally this bk's written in such a humorous, down to earth manner that evrybdy frm a cmmn man to a finance expert will not only enjoy this but also come out of it with a few key implementable learnings.

This is an 80's bk pblshd b4 YA fantasy became a thing & it shows.

A simple story with 👌 characters & enuf intrigue to keep us entertained. With newer fantasies I had cm to expect cnstnt twists, but this bk was predictable in a nostalgic, good way. I am continuing with the series.
I don't care much for the plot, but I am very interested in Polgara, Durnik & a few other characters.

Such a fun and awesome read!!! The humour, the camaraderie between the ladies, the imagination & creativity of the author were all top class!

I am conflicted over my favorite character. I loved them all. But, if I have to choose I'll pick Mrs. Spool & Beatrice + Diana ( it's a tie b/w them 😊)

I'll definitely be picking the next book in the series soon. This book was so worth it!

Can't stick with one book at a time. I have noticed myself reading multiple books of different genres at the same time. Sometimes 4 books at a time. Who else is a compulsive book hopper like me?
Is that problem if it works for you?
Today am adding this tiny finance non fiction book to my reading list.

The Vanishing Stair | Maureen Johnson

After the disappointing fantasy read, I am in a mood for a mysterious, fast thriller read. So picking up another 2nd book from a series ( I might regret it?) The vanishing stair. Wish me luck 🤞

Slightly disappointed with this 1. Story was ok. The book was action packed & well paced throughout, but nothing new, hence it was slightly boring in some places. I cudn't connect with the characters as well. I especially thought the 2nd romantic pair was a distraction. Their romance felt forced & shallow.

#juliekagawa #soulofsword

Now, am not sure abt the 3rd book in the series. 1st book was awsm, 2nd bk meh! Is the 3rd 1 worth the time?

It was not bad, it was not great. it was ok. Predictable, sweet, a little whimsical. This is a good coffee table book. Something you can read when you are too distracted, overwhelmed, and need a tiny dose of perspective. I wouldn't read it again, but I don't regret reading it either.
