Hello people. Are you double vaccinated??? How is your health??? Covid cases just surged in my city again. The 3rd wave doesn’t seem far now. I am getting all set to go through all this. I just hope no one gets Covid in my family. We have gone through a lot in the past few months, we don’t have any more strength now especially me. So on that note, let’s get into it, shall we???
1. Dear Fatty by Dawn French.
Dawn French is one of the greatest comedy actresses of our time, with a career spanning nearly three decades and encompassing a vast and brilliant array of characters that would eventually establish her as a national treasure.
She first appeared on the British entertainment scene as part of the groundbreaking alternative comedy group, the Comic Strip, which marked a radical departure from the more traditional comedy acts of the time. Later came the all-female Girls on Top with Jennifer Saunders, Ruby Wax and Tracy Ullman. Then, as part of the wildly successful duo, French and Saunders, Dawn helped create a repertoire of brilliantly observed recurring characters parodying popular culture and impersonating everything from Madonna and Harry Potter to The Exorcist. Dawn’s more recent role in The Vicar of Dibley again has showcased not only her talent but also her ability to take a controversial issue and make it mainstream and funny. From her early years as an RAF child to her flat-sharing antics with Jennifer Saunders, from her outspoken views on sizeism to her marriage to Lenny Henry, Dear Fatty will chronicle the fascinating and hilarious rise of a complex, dynamic and unstoppable woman.
This book is a biography of Dawn French and I am really interested in reading it but time doesn’t come. I am in a slump so I don’t feel like starting it. It is a biography so it is something that I will pick up later.
2. Nightshade by Nora Roberts.
They sure were making cops in interesting packages these days. Colt Nightshade couldn’t believe his luck partnering on a case with Lieutenant Althea Grayson. But the breathtaking detective was strictly by-the-book and had no use for Colt’s easygoing renegade style. Thawing the heart of this enticing ice goddess just might be the toughest challenge Colt had ever faced.
This book has me intrigued a lot. I just like the premise of this book a lot. I will read it one day in my life😊. It will be my first book of Nora Roberts by the way.
3. Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason by Helen Fielding.
Lurching from the cappuccino bars of Notting Hill to the blissed-out shores of Thailand, Bridget Jones searches for The Truth in spite of pathetically unevolved men, insane dating theories, and Smug Married advice (“‘I’m just calling to say in the potty! In the potty! Well, do it in Daddy’s hand, then!’”). She experiences a zeitgeist-esque Spiritual Epiphany somewhere between the pages of “How to Find the Love You Want Without Seeking It” (“can self-help books really self help?”), protective custody, and a lightly chilled Chardonnay.
Bridget Jones is quite famous so I bought this book before someone else could take it. So what happened was!!! I bought these books from a bookfair and when I was shopping there, I saw that there was only one piece of this book and one of the other people also had their eyes on this book. But it was Bridget Jones’s book so I just casually walked to the place where the book was and picked this one up with another book that I acted like I was there to see🤣🤣. So in short, I ended up buying non-fiction for this book, and then I found out that it’s a series and I need to buy the first book as this is the second one😒.
4. The Perks Of Being A WallFlower by Stephen Chbosky.
This is the story of what it’s like to grow up in high school. More intimate than a diary, Charlie’s letters are singular and unique, hilarious and devastating. We may not know where he lives. We may not know to whom he is writing. All we know is the world he shares. Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it puts him on a strange course through uncharted territory. The world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends. The world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that the perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite.
Through Charlie, Stephen Chbosky has created a deeply affecting coming-of-age story, a powerful novel that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.
Who doesn’t know this book??? It’s quite famous and a lot of people want to read it so do I. I am a little hesitant picking it up as people say that it can make you cry and my mental health is not so good right now so I don’t want to cry but I will pick it up as soon as I feel fine.
5. Gandhi’s India: Unity Is Diversity by Mahatma Gandhi.
No summary was given.
So those who know my blog for a few days I am currently trying to read more books on Indian politics. The books from Mahatma Gandhi and Rabindranath Tagore are mind-blowing and so educative .
6. Burn Baby Burn by Meg Medina.
Nora Lopez is seventeen during the infamous year 1977 in New York.
After a freezing winter, a boiling hot summer explodes with arson, a blackout, and a serial killer named Son of Sam, who is shooting young people on the streets seemingly at random.
Not only is the city a disaster, but Nora has troubles of her own: her brother, Hector, is growing more uncontrollable by the day, her mother is helpless to stop him, and her father is so busy with his new family that he only calls on holidays.
And it doesn’t stop there. The super’s after her mother to pay their overdue rent, and her teachers are pushing her to apply for college, but all Nora wants is to turn eighteen and be on her own. There is a cute guy who started working with her at the deli, but is dating even worth the risk when the killer especially likes picking off couples who stay out too late?
This book is 100% intriguing. I loved it so much. I am so happy I got this book. I am more interested in the name of the book; Burn Baby Burn. It feels like a song name😂.
7. Captivate by Vanessa Van Edwards.
Do you feel awkward at networking events? Do you wonder what your date really thinks of you? Do you wish you could decode people? You need to learn the science of people.
As a human behavior hacker, Vanessa Van Edwards created a research lab to study the hidden forces that drive us. And she’s cracked the code. In Captivate, she shares shortcuts, systems, and secrets for taking charge of your interactions at work, at home, and in any social situation. These aren’t the people skills you learned in school. This is the first comprehensive, science-backed, real-life manual on how to captivate anyone—and a completely new approach to building connections.
Just like knowing the formulas to use in a chemistry lab, or the right programming language to build an app, Captivate provides simple ways to solve people’s problems.
This is the nonfiction I ended up buying this book for Bridget Jones’s book🤧. I don’t know what to do with this book as it’s nonfiction and I don’t read them much.
8. Encounters of a Fat Bride by Samah.
Madhurima Pandey is twenty-five, single, and gradually coming to terms with the annoying ‘you’re next’ nudges from family and friends. But soon they realize that chances of finding a groom for her are slim-mainly because she’s not. At 93 kilos, she knows she isn’t the ideal weight for marriage, even if her family believes she’s the ideal age.
Despite her reservations, the hunt begins, and so does a spree of rejections until Harsh comes along. Madhu cannot believe that a boy with no obvious flaws has agreed to marry her. Low self-esteem makes her suspect he’s either impotent or a homosexual, but she doesn’t turn down the proposal immediately.
A negligible period of courtship and a hurried engagement follow. But does Madhurima really find her happily-ever-after? Or are there more surprises in store?
Jovial, witty and unapologetically honest, Madhurima Pandey’s story of struggle and survival in the run-up to her D-Day gives you a refreshingly new take on the big fat Indian wedding.
I finished reading this book and it was such a great book. I loved it so so much. It was a great read. It was funny and very educating. It talked a lot about self-love and how being fat should only be your choice. I will put out the review very soon so keep your tiny eyes open.
9. Flour Babies by Anne Fine.
Let it be flour babies. Let chaos reign.
When the annual school science fair comes round, Mr. Cartwright’s class doesn’t get to work on the Soap Factory, the Maggot Farm, or the Exploding Custard Tins. To their intense disgust, they get the Flour Babies – sweet little six-pound bags of flour that must be cared for at all times.
I finished reading this one too. I had read it when I was young in a school library, so when I found this book at the book fair, I decided to grab it for the sake of nostalgia, and I read it through in one sitting. The review of this cute book will be out soon😊.
10. Two Nights by Kathy Reichs.
Meet Sunday Night, a woman with physical and psychological scars, and a killer instinct…
Sunnie has spent years running from her past, burying secrets and building a life in which she needs no one and feels nothing. But a girl has gone missing, lost in the chaos of a bomb explosion, and the family needs Sunnie’s help.
Is the girl dead? Did someone take her? If she is out there, why doesn’t she want to be found? It’s time for Sunnie to face her own demons because they just might lead her to the truth about what really happened all those years ago.
This book has me all crazy over it. It is a Kathy Reichs book. I have like 2 Kathy Reichs books so I will start one of them in some time. This one intrigued me a lot and I am in the mood for a thriller so I might pick it up this month.
So that’s it, hope you are enjoying my unhaul, there are about 2 more coming in🤭🤭 so until they are posted…
