    Wow if this is “less than usual” I wonder how many you read otherwise. Since I used books to escape all the outside madness, I have read better than last year. In fact I may have to increase my goal πŸ˜€

    Wow, I counted, total 42 books you read in the last six months!! Amazing, just awesome. What I really like about your collection is you discover lesser known books that have intriguing titles and stunning, aptly designed book covers. Some of your books I have bookmarked to add to my TBR list. More power to your reading and reviewing journey, Ritu. πŸ’›πŸ’›

      Thank you so much, Swarnali. πŸ’› I do gravitate towards lesser-known books. The popular ones often disappoint me.

    This is such an amazing post, Ritu! Extremely impressed at the number of books you’ve read so far. And we still have 6 more months to go!
    Your post is also going to guide me about which book I should add to my list.

      Thank you so much, Mayuri. I am so happy to read that. I don’t expect to read much during the Holiday madness so this will probably make up for it πŸ™‚

    Wow! Halfway through and how amazing you are…I got introduced to so many books through your TBR list early this year. I have become such a slow reader these days, I even started reading 3 books at a time, something I did never before…

    I am flabbergasted by the number of books you read, Ritu. You make me wish to turn the clock back and go back to my reading. Sadly I cannot do that. I can only wish that you keep reading.

    You have covered a lot of books and loved your choices. I myself cannot read much in Hindi and trying to finish a book itself has become a task for me these days.

    The Juggernaut books are a good read while I’m eating with my hands in the food. I have 90% of the ones you have read but have only selected a few to mention in the TBR challenge. If I thought the stories were too short or I did not really like them, I did not take the trouble to click its photo and insert it into my readerboard. I have only read English. Like I told you before, I’m keeping Audiobooks for the future. Hahaha!
