We have crossed the halfway mark of the year!
I am not a big meme doer. I have done just the one :#Flashbackfriday- July 2017 but I have been reading the ones put up by all those other bloggers. A few of the tags that I was tempted to attempt did not really get done because I was unable to find answers to many of the questions.
This time I thought I would set myself a challenge to see if I could limit myself to finding books that fit the six categories that I have chosen out of the ones provided by the host.
The meme is hosted by Jo @ The Book Jotter ( do check out link for all those interesting categories) and is a way to share the books we have read in the first six months of the year. In fact it is to share six books in six categories. I am just listing out books that I have reviews of so that I can tempt people to go check them out! Since I have trouble limiting my books list and for additional variety, I try not to repeat the books in the categories though we are allowed to.Do link back to the host site if you want to do this meme too!
I have linked the reviews of the books from the cover pages and I jumped with joy when I managed to (sort of) successfully fill all categories.
Six books I have enjoyed the most
Here I include books that may not necessarily have made me feel happy ( as the word enjoyed might hint), but have given me a thrill.
Six From the Non-Fiction Shelf
This has been a new phase in my reading life, and I am happy that I am widening my horizons if only for all the extra books it brings into my life.
Six books I’ve read in an English translation
I never thought I would be one of those people who would appreciate something translated (having had some trouble liking books translated from a few regional languages back home, years ago) but translators have really outclassed themselves.
Six books that I was disappointed with ( did not like as much as most others seemed to)
Surprisingly, there were a lot of books that I did not enjoy as much all all those glowing reviews by others seemed to indicate they did!
Six book covers I love
This is a hard one, I tend to choose books in the library more on the basis of covers so I am going to try and keep this list limited to the physical books I have read.
Six series of books read or started
I am a big fan of series’ . It makes me happy ( most times) to follow the lives of the familiar people like a saga. I wish I could tweak this to only include series with six books but that would probably be asking for too much!
Please do check out the reviews that you (think you might) find interesting, and leave comments!
