So,its that time of the year, where I go completely berserk and order books like there is no tomorrow! This time,it was a combination of recommendations from friends,the hyped ones,and the ones my gut said "Go for it!!" Now,only time will tell whether I would love them all or not.

  2. Mythology:Timeless Tales of Gods & Heroes by Edith Hamilton-I'm a sucker for mythology.This book deals mainly with Roman and Greek mythical tales.
  3. Rules of Prey by John Sandford-Read pretty good reviews about it in Goodreads and Amazon.
