Hello and welcome to my first Top Ten Tuesday of 2017.
Last year, I dropped the ball on this meme, and really all memes, but I thought I’d revive at least this one. I ended up with just nine books for this meme, not because I read everything else released last year, but because these books are the only ones I regret missing out on. You can be sure they ended up on my TBR list for 2017.
The first weekend of the year has been action-packed and beyond hectic. My weekends are anyway usually full with horse-riding classes for Piglet and art classes for Snubnose. And now I have added an activity for Coco as well.
Here is a very, very late post on the five best books I read in 2016. This is a post I’ve been sitting on for the past couple of weeks. The reason being I wanted to make a top ten post (which is what I usually do). But 2016 was mainly a year of a lot of escapist reading, and while I enjoyed quite a few of them (Cassandra Clare, Robert Galbraith, a ton of Indian fiction), I didn’t really feel that they were that great enough to be on a top ten list.
And so, here’s a top five. But the books mentioned here, I loved, as in I really, really loved, and would read again in a heartbeat.
Last week of December was the Winter break, and now after a week of sleeping, and eating when I please, my circadian rhythms are all over the place, and I am feeling enormously tired and jet lagged although I went no further than Chennai (about 300 km east of where I live) to my parents’ place.
As you might have guessed from my blog title and first sentence, I spent the break alternating between being a couch potato, and being a lazy hippo wallowing in the water, and felt thoroughly relaxed in the process.
All my RSI-related aches and pains, and Vitamin D deficiency-related pains all faded away taking me to a mellow state. And yes, the multiple bottles of beer helped too 🙂 .
