Hello All!!!

Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners

To participate, choose a random book from your TBR and show it off. Don’t forget to link back so that others can see what you picked.

I have read two books by John Green and very soon I am going to start the third one.

For this week, my feature is An Abundance of Katherines by John Green.

Synopsis

Katherine V thought boys were gross

Katherine X just wanted to be friends

Katherine XVIII dumped him in an e-mail

K-19 broke his heart

When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton’s type happens to be girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.

On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun–but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl. 

Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself. (from Goodreads)

I have always loved the writing style of John Green and I love reading his books. Looking forward to reading this one and reviewing as well.

Share your thoughts and ideas about this book.

Until next post,

Goodreads Monday – Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely

Hello All!!!

I am back on posting regularly. Monday is all about Goodreads Monday, where you show off a random book selected from your TBR pile. This lovely meme is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners

This book has been in my TBR pile for some time. I loved the story, but decided to read it after all the hype that was created in the blogosphere itself. I saw so many great reviews and ratings and thought that, I should read it. So here it is;

Synopsis

Seventeen-year-old Serendipity “Pity” Jones inherited two things from her mother: a pair of six shooters and perfect aim. She’s been offered a life of fame and fortune in Cessation, a glittering city where lawlessness is a way of life. But the price she pays for her freedom may be too great….
In this extraordinary debut from Lyndsay Ely, the West is once again wild after a Second Civil War fractures the U.S. into a broken, dangerous land. Pity’s struggle against the dark and twisted underbelly of a corrupt city will haunt you long after the final bullet is shot. (from Goodreads)

SERENDIPITY, I really wanted to know more about her. What is given to her in life seems really thrilling to read. Very much looking forward to reading this one. Of course there will be a review, once I finished reading it.

Wish me luck!!!

Until next post,

Goodreads #9 – Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Hello All!!!

Welcome to this weeks Goodreads Monday. This weekly meme is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. The idea of this meme is to show off any random book selected from your Goodreads TBR pile. This is what I chose for this week;

Synopsis

Scarlett Dragna has never left the tiny island where she and her sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval—the faraway, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show—are over. 

But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt-of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner. 

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. Nevertheless she becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic. And whether Caraval is real or not, Scarlett must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over or a dangerous domino effect of consequences will be set off, and her beloved sister will disappear forever. (From Goodreads)

I have seen so much hype on the blogosphere and eagerly looking forward to reading this book.

Until next Post,
