Bookish Birthday Gifts || Book Haul (2).

Hello people, how are you all??? How’s life??? I am so happy that I am back again because, to be honest, I missed blogging. I am like to hell with everything. Let’s blog. So here I am with the second part of the book haul. There might be more than 6 parts so get ready for this series. And now on that note, let’s get into it!!!

1. No Second Chance by Harlan Coben.


Marc Seidman’s idyllic world is brutally ripped apart when he is gunned
down in his home. Twelve days later he wakes up in hospital to learn that
his wife is dead and his baby daughter Tara is missing. A ransom demand is made and agreed to. But something goes terribly wrong. The kidnappers escape, and Marc remembers the ransom note’s ominous warning: there will be no second chance.

An agonising eighteen months pass with no word. And then, as Marc has just about given up all hope of seeing his daughter again, a package arrives with a note attached: want a second chance?

The note is chilling, but Marc sees only one thing: the chance to save his daughter. And, haunted by deception and deadly secrets – about his wife, about an old love, and about his own past – he vows to bring Tara home … at any cost.

I have been in love with Harlan Coben since I read Hold Tight. My dream is to own all his books. Like a bookshelf full of Harlan Coben books😍😍. I will be reading this next year so I am so excited😍.

2. Deal Breaker (Myron Bolitar, #1) by Harlan Coben.


Sports agent Myron Bolitar is poised on the edge of the big time. So is Christian Steele, a rookie quarterback and Myron’s prized client. But when Christian gets a phone call from a former girlfriend, a woman who everyone, including the police, believes is dead, the deal starts to go sour. Trying to unravel the truth about a family’s tragedy, a woman’s secret, and a man’s lies, Myron is up against the dark side of his business where image and talent make you rich, but the truth can get you killed.

I am collecting all the 11 books in the Myron Bolitar series so this is the first part of the series. I am ordering these books from different places so they might vary in covers as some books are so expensive.

3. Fade Away (Myron Bolitar, #3) by Harlan Coben.


The home was top-notch New Jersey suburban. The living room was Martha Stewart. The basement was Legos—and blood. For sports agent Myron Bolitar, the disappearance of a man he’d once competed against was bringing back memories—of the sport he and Greg Downing had both played and the woman they both loved. Now, among the stars, the wanna-bes, the gamblers and groupies, Myron is unraveling the strange, violent life of a sports hero gone wrong, and coming face-to-face with a past he can’t relive, and a present he may not survive.

The second book in this series was very expensive so I am trying to find it at a cheap price. I think I, at last, did buy it so I am happy too. The 3 books are in and more coming in.

4. Nationalism by Rabindranath Tagore.


“Their real freedom is not within the boundaries of security, but in the highroad of adventures, full of the risk of new experiences.” nationalism was a popular subject of debate in the pre-Independence era and academics from across the world shared their ideas on the same. Tagore’s idea of nationalism is deep-rooted in his belief that growth has to be all-inclusive – not just for a nation, but also for its people. This book is a collection of Tagore lectures on nationalism in the West, Japan and India. His mastery with expression is further highlighted as he recounts the need of the concept of nation to benefit its people, and not just exist as an idealistic theory that benefits a few. Nationalism brings to fore Tagore’s deep understanding of contemporary politics and paves a middle path between growth of the people and a nation, and aggressive ways towards modernity.

I finished reading this book and I loved it so much. It was so educating and I got to learn so much about my country and politics. The review of this book is almost ready and I will be dropping it soon. So keep your eyes open people.

5. Sanctum (Asylum Series, #2) by Madeleine Roux.


Dan, Abby, and Jordan remain traumatized by the summer they shared in the Brookline asylum. Much as they’d love to move on, many questions remain, and someone is determined to keep the terror alive, sending the teens photos of an old-timey carnival, with no note and no name. Forsaking their plan never to go back, the teens return to New Hampshire College under the guise of a weekend for prospective students, and there they realize that the carnival from the photos is not only real, it’s here on campus, apparently for the first time in many years.

Sneaking away from sample classes and college parties, Dan and his friends lead a tour of their own—one through the abandoned houses and hidden places of a surrounding town. Camford is hiding a terrible past, and the truth behind Dan’s connection to the asylum’s evil warden is more terrifying than Dan ever imagined.

I read this book and I loved loved it. I just love the whole series and I am on the final book of the series. I can’t wait to finish it like OMG!!!! So excited!!!!!!!!!!!!

6. Good Omens (Discworld Series) by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman


What if, for once, the predictions are right, and the Apocalypse really is due to arrive next Saturday, just after tea?

It’s a predicament that Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a fast-living demon, now find themselves in. They’ve been living amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and, truth be told, have grown rather fond of the lifestyle and, in all honesty, are not actually looking forward to the coming Apocalypse.

And then there’s the small matter that someone appears to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .

I read about 50 pages of this book but unfortunately, I was in a slump so couldn’t continue, I am thinking of picking it up in November but still let’s see how that goes.

7. Forty Rules Of Love by Elif Shafak.


“Every true love and friendship is a story of unexpected transformation. If we are the same person before and after we loved, that means we haven’t loved enough…”

Ella Rubinstein has a husband, three teenage children, and a pleasant home. Everything that should make her confident and fulfilled. Yet there is an emptiness at the heart of Ella’s life – an emptiness once filled by love.

So when Ella reads a manuscript about the thirteenth-century Sufi poet Rumi and Shams of Tabriz, and his forty rules of life and love, her world is turned upside down. She embarks on a journey to meet the mysterious author of this work.

It is a quest infused with Sufi mysticism and verse, taking Ella and us into an exotic world where faith and love are heartbreakingly explored. . .

This is a book I am picking up next month as it has been on my TBR for the longest time ever. This book was a birthday present from nupur (Flutteringpagesxx) to me and I am so grateful to her for this.

So that’s it. I loved doing this again after a week but what am I supposed to do??? My sulking period is on so typing time is slow. So until I come back again…
