I was able to read only a couple of books In may as I had my semester end exams as well this month-
- You Get So Alone at Times That it Just Makes Sense by Charles Bukowski
Bukowski is known for his free verse poems. This book is a collection of gloomy poems, dealing with the themes of loneliness, being broke, cats, whores, writer’s block and writing. It’s perfect to read on nights when you feel lonely or sad. Some of my favorite poems from this collection are ‘zero’ which is about writer’s block, ‘drive through hell’ about emotions of people driving in the roads in the city, ‘death sat on my knee and cracked with laughter’, ‘how is your heart?’ and ‘it’s ours’.
- Kill the Messenger by Tami Hoag
A bike messenger gets stuck in the midst of a murder mystery and it becomes a threat to his life. The words ‘predator’ and ‘prey’ are used aptly. It has really good character development and turns out to be an amazing thriller novel.
