IMWAYR- 20/03/2017

Hey guys! I know it's been a while since I've updated you all on my reading, but to be honest, I haven't really been reading much. The week of 6th March, I was away on a camping trip, so I didn't get in much reading at all. Last week however, was much better in terms of reading!

I finished reading "Made You Up" by Francesca Zappia (look out for my review this week). This book is about a schizophrenic girl attempting to adjust to normal teen life when she stumbles upon a person she always thought was imaginary.

I also finished "Poison Study" by Maria V Snyder, a young adult novel about a prisoner/poison taster in a militarist country. The series soon turns into a fantasy one. It's a series that you can go through in a month, as the language is colloquial and simple.

  This week, I read"Magic Study" the second book in the "Chronicles of Ixia" by Maria V. Snyder. They're quite light reads, and I've had a lot of free time on my hands.


I've been re-reading "The Giver" by Lois Lowry for a school assignment. For those of you who don't know, "The Giver" is about a futuristic society where opinions and expressions don't exist. Everything is black and white and only one person has any memories of the real world.

I recently visited "Full Circle" Bookstore in Delhi. For those of you living in the area, you should definitely check it out, it has a lot of books that I've never found in Indian bookstore. including recent releases of YA and Debut Authors. I picked up "I am the Messenger"  by Marcus Zusak, which I hope to read this week.

  1. Made You Up sounds fascinating, thanks! The Giver is still one of my all-time favorite reads from when I was a child (but I have very strong feelings against the "sequels.")

  2. OMG you are gonna post a review for Made U up! YAY! I have heard SO MANY controversial reviews. Can't wait to hear what you think of it. I'm reading it soon too because I had a very close experience with schizophrenia and I want to add my opinion to the pool

  4. Made You Up sounds like a book that would fit our current reading theme. I love The Giver quartet (although admittedly, I haven't read the last book Son yet)

    1. I've only read the first book in the quartet, but I'm told that the others aren't as good!
