Maria (mariasaleem) | 4 comments I'm reading the Fellowship of the Ring (Lord of the Rings, #1) by J.R.R. Tolkien currently. It's going good so far! Started out nice and exciting now there is suspense already through the second chapter. Love how the people are reacting to the coming change...


message 4: by Ahmed (new)

Ahmed Mustafa (theahmedmustafa) | 1 comments "12 Rules of Life : An atidote to Chaos" by Jordan Peterson. My admiration for that man's intellect and wisdom can hardly be overstated. Almost halfway by now. If you don't know him, you MUST find your time and watch "Jordan Peterson and Cathy Newman" interview on You Tube. That's as perfect of an introduction to that man as it gets!

Sheeba I am currently reading "Sapiens: A brief History of Humankind" by Yuval Noah Harari. This is surely one of those books that changes your outlook forever. It doesn't matter if you are familiar with history, biology or evolution, this book is a wonderful amalgamation of all these and traces the journey of humankind from hunter-gatherer to a civilized society. I recommend this book to everyone.

Bia Ahmed (bia-ahmed) | 5 comments I want to just highlight the whole book based on how much valuable information I'm getting from each and every page!

I've read The Night Circus. It's such a lovely book full of peculiar and amazing characters (with tsukiko being my favourite) but I was not satisfied with the ending though. Ah, I'm not going to to spoil it for you! :D

i liked the idea of The Night Circus, got a copy after looking for a whole year but i was disappointed with the end as well.Also i feel the writer could have handled the story in a better way i felt there was no continuity in the the book. The whole book was so stretched out but the end was so abrupt. i was disappointed after reading that book

Tehreem (tjmalik) Just finished Dehli by Heart by Raza Rumi. it is an amazing books that deals with history, culture, food and politics in such a comprehensive manner that it is amazing 300+ pages can hold so much information.

I started it too, last year and haven't finished yet, got busy and now I guess I'd have to start reading it again. There is soooo soooooo much more than movies. I find prose really annoying sometimes, what do you think of them?


message 17: by Nigham (new)

Nigham | 4000 comments Reading The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani these days, it's fantasy and author has drawn parallels not only to the Grimm brothers' works, but also to Harry Potter series. It's going good so far.


message 18: by Maria (new)

Maria (mariasaleem) | 4 comments Honestly, it drags a bit sometimes (SO MUCH DESCRIPTION) but the writing is beautiful and the themes are intriguing. You should continue it! If you keep going, it gets interesting.

I know right! But YES Tolkein was hell of an intelligent person. His work is extra ordinary. To be honest he reminds me of Gregor Johann Mendel (yes, the father of genetics... traits... inheritance...) whose work was ignored for 34 years and was widely recognized after his death, haha.

Will start reading asap. :)

Bilal Taibzada | 406 comments I'm currently reading the chronicles of christomanci the first two books but I'm stuck in the book (cliché,you know what I mean) and don't want to read anymore but I'm still shocked how my favorite author(Diana Wynne Jones) made such utter crap.


But i have to un haul a lot of books and pass it to other readers because my shelf is full to the brim (I'm planning on buying a bigger shelf next week) so i had to read it as it was on the shelf for over 2 years now and i still hadn't read it


message 34: by Bilal (last edited Apr 21, 2018 07:49AM) (new)

Bilal Taibzada | 406 comments I just searched the book up

it was made in the 70's so.......


but the cool thing i found about it is that this book that i have is the one that was published back in the old days (70's)

which makes it limited edition

Im having second thoughts about un hauling this specific book:

P.s if ur wondering how i have such an old book is because i buy most of my books from a store that smuggles books(that's an actual thing) from the us and Europe

so it was already in bad shape but I till bought it (lucky me)

That is a great book. A really engrossing novel on Partition especially those chapters about the violence are extremely well-written. I read the book several years ago but those few pages where Sidhwa describes the violence are still fresh in my memory.


message 40: by Nayab (new)

Nayab (xnayab_azhar8) | 22 comments I'm reading a darker shade of magic. It's slow in the sense that one third of the book comprise of the world building of all the londons and the characters and yet I can't seem to build a connection with the heroine of this book. But the story is good, the idea of several worlds coexisting is what intrigued me the most.

Although this book is legendary, I think self help books have come a long way. I think you could benefit more by actually reading a book about how habits are formed and how to manage them. I highly recommend that You read "The power of Habit" by Charles Duhigg. It reads like a really humorous medical paper.

I hope you like the book.

I've heard amazing things about the Power of Habit! Didn't know it was hunourous, though. Now I am more eager to check it out!
