Goodreads Monday #9 – IT by Stephen King

Hello Lovely Bookaholics!!!

Monday is all about Goodreads Monday, sharing a random book from your Goodreads TBR pile. This wonderful meme is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners

This week I chose a book that was added to my TBR very recently. That was after I watched the movie and felt the hype in the Blogosphere itself. I really want to read this book and hoping to get a kindle copy soon.

IT by Stephen King

Synopsis

Welcome to Derry, Maine. It’s a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real. They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But the promise they made twenty-eight years ago calls them reunite in the same place where, as teenagers, they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city’s children. Now, children are being murdered again and their repressed memories of that terrifying summer return as they prepare to once again battle the monster lurking in Derry’s sewers. 

Readers of Stephen King know that Derry, Maine, is a place with a deep, dark hold on the author. It reappears in many of his books, including Bag of Bones, Hearts in Atlantis, and 11/22/63. But it all starts with It. (From Goodreads)

Hope you enjoyed!

Until next post,

Goodreads Monday #8 – Turtles all the way down by John Green

Hello All!!!

Welcome to another Monday where we talk about books from your TBR pile in Goodreads. This awesome meme is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turner. Do visit her blog guys!!!

For this week I chose a book that has been in my TBR for some time. I am trying to get this book, because now it is available in my country. Yaaaaiiiii!!!! But still I couldn’t. It is none other than Turtles all the way down by John Green.

Synopsis

Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship. (from Goodreads)

I have not yet read any of the books from John Green and therefore I am looking forward to reading it.

Until next post,

Goodreads Monday #6 – Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Hello my fellow book lovers!!!

Its is Monday and I hope you are having a fantastic start of week! Monday is all about Goodreads Monday, hosted by lovely, Lauren’s Page Turner. Do check out her blog!

This week I chose a book that I added to my TBR recently. It is Carry On by Rainbow Rowell.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Synopsis

Simon Snow is the worst chosen one who’s ever been chosen.
That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.
Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here—it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up. (From Goodreads)

I have seen lots of great comments and positive hype for this book, on the blogosphere. I read the blurb and felt, it kind of reminded me of Harry Potter. I am trying to get it through Kindle and hoping to do a review once I have finished reading.

Until next post,

XOXOX
