Musing Mondays – 4

MusingMondays5

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

  • I’m currently reading…
  • Up next I think I’ll read…
  • I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
  • I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I can’t wait to get a copy of…
  • I wish I could read ___, but…
  • I blogged about ____ this past week…

So, this week I choose “I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…”. Sometime back I finished reading “The year I met you” by Cecilia Ahern. I wanted to do a review ever since and somehow could not get myself to do it. Well, I am planning to review it this week and since i have stated it over here, I guess I will have no other option but to do the post. 😛 🙂
And, I’m currently reading “The Catcher in the Rye” by J.D. Salinger. I am sure most of you have already read it. But i am a bit lagging when it is the case with classics and don’t blame me, I’m just a late bloomer with English Classics.

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Do you enjoy debating / discussing the books that others are currently reading? Why, or why not?

I do enjoy debating/discussing the books that other are currently reading only if i have read it earlier. There is no chance i would say a word when i haven’t read the book and again, i try not to talk in case if the reader doesn’t want any spoilers to be revealed. But once they are done reading, i would like to discuss everything about the book with no objections at all if they are ready to discuss. 🙂
So, this is me with the Monday Musing after skipping it last week. 🙂 I wish i don’t skip it more often. But then, that’s up-to me and you all have a great week and happy reading and Take care people. Bye Bye.

Love

I very well know that i am not posting this on Monday but since i decided to make this a tradition on the blog, i thought it is better to be late than never and hence the post. Well, this week i choose, “I’m currently reading…”. I am currently reading Brida by Paulo Coehlo. I have started reading it sometime last year and never got anywhere near completion. It is fiction but not the regular type. When it is Paulo Coehlo, fiction doesn’t seem like fiction. It has all the spiritual and emotional rides you can find. And i find traits of personality development concepts too. Naturally, a normal fiction book makes me read from end to end without breaks and i would complete the book in no time. But this is not the same case with books like these. These spiritual books never allow me to do that ‘at a stretch’ thing. I will have to read a part only to be forced to stop and ponder over those thoughts and words and sometimes was even forced to give some serious thought and then move on to the next page or chapter. Now, with my heights of affection towards getting distracted, would i ever be able to finish such books on time?. That never happens and i take very long time to complete reading them. And Brida is one of those. As much as i love reading this book, i hate myself for taking so long for completing it. Now, i don’t want to put it down for the second time again just because i am tempted to read a thriller or romance. The book is interesting and time taking as well. I hope i complete it soon and come back with a review. But till then, bye bye.

Have a great day people. 🙂

Well, this week i choose, “I bought the following book(s) in the past week..”

As i rambled in my previous post, i bought 3 books last week. There was a sale and i was there for the last 2 days of it and obviously was attracted and had no choice but to buy. It was not that i had lots of money to spare or the books were irresistible, i just had to buy them. By brain reasons out that if i was there, i was there for the purpose to buy. Strange, it never reasons me that way when i window shop for dresses!. May be that is also for the best. If not for that, i would have been bankrupt and would be writing another confessions book by now. 🙂 Okay, i am famous for the endless chatter and rambles so let’s get to the point.

I bought these books the past week.

1. Kipling by Jad Adams — I am more interested in reading Gandhi by Jad Adams but then, at a sale, you live with what you get!

2. Someone special by Sheila O’Flanagan — Did i ever tell you, Just like the way it is with Korea, anything and everything about Irish or Ireland interests me.

3. A short walk in the Hindukush by Eric Newby — Travel books always have a special spot in my heart. One should be surprised if i bought 3 books and at-least one of them isn’t a travel tale.

Though i started this meme during the blogathon, i did it because i really liked it. I wanted to do this as a habit and make a tradition on my blog. So, here i am with my Musing. 🙂

Hope you all are having a great Monday. Good bye and take care.

I choose, “I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)… ”  for this Monday. I recently happened to read Ravinder Singh’s latest book, “Your dreams are mine now”. And i was really upset with the book. I like the author and have high expectations from him and i wish he did better.

That’s all for today and many thanks to Miz B for creating this really easy Meme and Smitha for finding this. 🙂 Have a great day people.
