Good day, world. The Nerdy Snickerdoodle is back with a total blast, on her stupendously short vacation.
First up, excellent news. I graduated quite successfully from school and am now enrolled into one of the loveliest private universities in the state, mostly because I didn’t get into my dream college, so there’s that.
Anyway, since that dreadful exam pressure has eased up, I can now speculate about the possibility of getting a few new novels. That would sincerely depend on my festival allowance and my dad’s mood; a bit tight on the miscellaneous spending, as of now. But who can stop the dreaming? Here’s a few books that I would love to get my hands on (covers not included):
- The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde:
Story about reality and fiction mixing. Saw the cover of sequel at local supermarket and wanted to read. I may need some reviews from people who have actually read it.
- Thing Explainer by Randall Munroe
I am in love with his book What If? and being a science enthusiast, and responsible older sibling, yes, I need this book.
- Jaya and Sita by Devdutt Patnaik, also Sita: Warrior of Mithila by Amish Tripathi
Indian mythology retold. I need some insight into these books as well, although I do personally like Tripathi’s work. The fact that the titles of these books are the names of women is an emboldening tribute to feminism.
- Any book from the Shadowhunter Chronicles scheduled for release this summer or later.
If you haven’t gleaned this from any of my previous posts, the very substance of which I can hardly remember and not for lack of trying, (my Internet is experiencing problems and I’m scared that I might upset it) I am a huge fan of Cassandra Clare’s writing. Beautiful, simplistic, up-to-date.
- I shall now state a few series whose third books I haven’t had the pleasure of devouring yet.
4. The Magisterium Series (I only have Book 1)
- Honourable mentions of cheesy dystopian series and teen drama that I haven’t bandwagoned yet,(not sure if I ever will for the second, third and fourth)
Delirium, Matched, The Selection, The Raven Boys, Wings, Magyk, Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus, Magnus Chase.
- I will include a link in the footer to my Goodreads To Read List, as I have just remembered that I have an account there. On that note, I wouldn’t say no to a work of Alice Oseman(except Solitaire), Haruki Murakami or The Trylle Trilogy by Amanda Hocking,
- I should also read some good hardback classics. I need to reconnect with my roots. Time Travel is definitely a plus. Although hardbacks may be a bit hard to come by …or afford, for that matter.
Anyway, thank you once again for reading. I hope you bring joy and radiance to society in your own way, whether as an engineer, an artist, a poet, a window washer, a hairdresser (speaking of which, I need a haircut.) or even a purple ellie. Congratulations and don’t stray from the right path!
