July Wrap Up






Hello everyone! 
The month of July was really very good for me or you can say that it was one of the reading months for me this year. I manged to read eight diverse titles. I really liked that I read different genres in the month of July and not  sticked to just one. I read not only Indian authors but I read quite a few foreign authors as well. So, here are the books that I read :





1. GIRL IN THE MIRROR by Cecelia Ahern

Girl In the Mirror comprises of two short stories which are quite different. I have read a lot of books by Cecelia Ahern and this one was quite different. The first story was basically unimaginable one. I was just thinking whether this can happen in reality or not. It was a dark story. While on the other hand, the other story The Memory Maker was not so interesting. It was confusing for me.
Overall, the book was an average read.





2. HERE FALLS THE SHADOW by Bhaskar Chattopadhyay
