May/June Reading List

So I’ve finally gotten my reading vibe back and it sort of helped with my depression. It’s been soo long and I missed it a lot. I feel like a fragment of me has been restored which explains the number of books I was able to devour in a month.

I started with African Fiction. I felt like exploring that genre a bit. I haven’t exactly read a lot in my entire life so it felt right. After which John Green held me to ransom. I read most if not all of his published books this month and he became my new favourite author although the young adult genre has quite settled with me yet. As a sucker for happy endings, I started a Nicholas Sparks marathon with I wasn’t able to complete. There are so many books to read. I had issues selecting. In between, I tried to fit in a few fictions to avoid monotony. Wrote a couple of reviews too which was quite exhausting so I stopped after a while. I realised that I needed to just enjoy the books without being mindful of the techniques.

Then again, I had to learn. There was no point reading if I wasn’t going pick a few things that I would imbibe and influence my writings.

Anyways, in the order of books I read this past month;

 Half Of A Yellow Sun – Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche

 The Accidental Billionaires – Ben Mezrich

 The Bride Collector – Ted Dekker

 The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Lives – Lola Shonenyin

 The Fault In Our Stars – John Green

Looking For Alaska – John Green

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower – Stephen Chomsky

Paper Towns – John Green

The Last Song – Nicholas Sparks

An Abundance Of Katherines – John Green

A Walk To Remember – Nicholas Sparks

A Time to Kill – John Grisham

Hopefully I’m able to read more next month. I just have to find a way to fit without affecting my studies.

  1. That’s an impressive number of books indeed.
    I love John Green. Have yet to read Paper Towns, though. Is it as good as TFIOS?

    Also happy to see you read Half of a Yellow Sun. It’s one of my favorite books.
