Book Challenge - January

This year hasn't been off to a good start. It feels like there is no short term goal. So I decided to challenge myself to something that I love. Reading. The challenge is to read 24 books this year... preferably 2 books a month. I don't have a list ready... I'm planning to take it as it comes. I have already read 2 books in January. I'll include some pictures from this month and maybe write a review of the book with a short summary. There aren't too many books that I don't like.


    I heard that this book by Dan Brown isn't his best piece of work and doesn't live up to the other books that he has written. It wasn't a bad read but could have been better in some parts.
    The book follows professor Robert Langdon who wakes up unconscious and has no recollection of how he was injured or he landed up in the hospital.The book is all about how he rushes against time to prevent the downfall of the human species. The end has a twist to it,where the person you thought was his ally turns out to be the enemies ally.

    My friend has been trying to get me to read Jeffrey Archer and lent me this book. I am hooked. At the very beginning of the book when I realised that the twins were going to be separated and might meet as rivals I screamed out loud.  Screeched more like it ... I didn't want it happen.... Isn't that what a good book is all about ? Making you feel what the characters are feeling ? I waited and waited for them to meet and realise that they were brothers.. twins and the bond they had. I'm glad the book had an indirect happy ending. They at least came to know they were brothers. It was definitely worth the read and its definitely become one of my all time favourites!
