This month is all about Ramadan. The best month of the year. I am excited that this year I decided to do #ramadandaily. A photo a day in Ramadan and document it. I made another #ramadandaily photo prompt .
During Ramadan I used these 8 useful apps to help me managed my life better.
I do a book haul. This is my first book haul ever. And I am loving it. I totally forgot how exciting it was to buy books.
I also made this book wish lists for July. So far I only got an ebook version of the book. I somehow didn't have the time to haul books during Ramadan. I might make up hauling in August.
I am beyond excited that I got to finished reading three books in June and I've finished reading four books in July so far. Last year I can't even finished reading one book in a year. This is definitely a big accomplishment for me.
And I also finished Ignite Me in July. I love this book. It reminds me a lot of Twilight Series.
Finally I've print out my Project Life 2014 [Week 1 - Week 27]. I am so excited to have a hardcopy of my project. Something tangible I can hold and share with my children.
I hope you had an amazing July and discover many new favorites. I am looking forward to a beautiful August, True Blood, Pretty Little Liars and more photos for Project Life 2014.
August is just upon us. Since we are all in Eid mode, I decided to make an entry that has nothing to do with Eid. I am not sure if I can finished the 5th wave by the end of July but I am sure determine to finished it in early August. In the last book haul I bought a lot of books from various bookstore locally and also from amazon.com. So before I buy more books in August I am sure intend to read some of the books I bought in August. I would be nice to cross a few books from my collection.
Books To Be Read in August
by Veronica Roth "In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself." excerpt from amazon.com I am not sure if I want to see the movie first or read the book first. I usually don't really care which one comes first. #2. Insurgent (Divergent, Book 2) (Divergent Series)
by Veronica Roth "One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love." excerpt from amazon.com
#3. The 9th Girl (Kovac and Liska)
by Tami Hoag "On a frigid New Year’s Eve in Minneapolis, a young woman is found brutally murdered—the ninth so far this year in a string of grisly slayings. Homicide detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska fear that it’s the work of a serial killer they call Doc Holiday, a transient who has brought his gruesome game to a new and more terrifying level. But as Kovac and Liska uncover the truth, they find that the monsters in the ninth girl’s life may live closer to home. And even as another young woman disappears, they have to ask the question: Which is the greater evil—the devil you know or the devil you don’t?" excerpt from amazon.com #4. The Cuckoo's Calling (A Cormoran Strike Novel)
by Robert Galbriath "After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is living in his office.
Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: His sister, thelegendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man" excerpt from amazon.com
Currently reading #1. The 5th Wave
by Rick Yancey The story about Alien Invasion. It's a little bit scary and depress. I am still on chapter 16 and things get pretty hopeless so far. This story makes me think about what happened in Gaza. It feel like Israel is the Alien that try to Invade Gaza by wiping out the Palestine bit by bit. #2. The 6th Target (Women's Murder Club)
by James Patterson This might be my new favourite series. I had so much fun reading Unlucky 13 and I enjoy the characters so much. Might collect all thirteen books. That is all for now. How is your Eid celebration? Do you have fun? Do you still make time to read during the holiday?
I saw this tag while browsing youtube. I love doing tag especially when I am busy and planning a few schedule posts in advance.
