On my shelf in July 2015

June 2015 proved out to be fruitful in terms of my reading goals.

The best part of June was that I finally wrote the flash fiction that I was contemplating to write for a long, long time. I also started working upon my first draft of a novella. Outlining the plot and making character charts for the story is very exciting. I used an Excel Spreadsheet for writing chapter-by-chapter outline and the names of the characters I intend to use in the story, lest I forget. Research for the story is also an integral part of writing. Getting inspiration from the surroundings and the people and making notes to include them in my story is now a task that I enjoy and look forward to.

Even though writing is now a prime activity of my day, I cannot compromise on reading. More story ideas come to my mind while reading than when I actually start to write.

As Stephen King said: “If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have time to write. Simple as that.”

So my reading spree continues in July 2015 and these are the books on my shelf:

On my shelf in June 2015

May 2015 was good in terms of my reading schedule. Read a lot more than was included in my pile.

It was also good as far as my blog schedule was concerned. I managed to create an editorial calendar for June 2015. This is the first editorial calendar that I ever created. But I am glad May comes to an end as the temperatures in Mumbai were soaring high and June would bring in the rains to cool it down. I am not so fond of the monsoon season but right now a relief from the heat is much needed.

Well, what could be better than reading a novel with a cup of coffee in my hand while its raining outside.

Goa

In spite of the sweltering heat in Goa, meeting my mom and sister there always re-energizes me. The evening strolls along the beaches and having cocktails at night in the breezy beach shacks is a wonderful way to spend time with family.

So after a refreshing long weekend in Goa, I am back to my new pile of books to read this month.

My last month’s list of books could not be completed owing to time constraints. I managed to read just two books: The House of Mirth and Madame Bovary.

Here is the list of my To-Be-Read pile of books for May 2015:
