Monthly Wrap-Up

Is it 31st of July already? It looks like I went on a trip to the center of the universe in the TARDIS and the Doctor got the timings wrong on my return trip! It is quite possible the Cybermen kidnapped me, found the ‘delete’ button in my amygdala and sent me back to Earth. Okay, okay, before you think I have gone bonkers (which by the way is my ‘normal’, thank you very much), let me change the topic. πŸ˜›

I have been re-watching Doctor Who. I skipped the Amy-Rory part – weeping angels scare the beejeebers (or is it jeebeebers? Justin Bieber?) outta me. My favourite doctors are the 10th, 12th and 13th. Who is/are your favourite doctor(s)?

Things are looking a little bleak in Bangalore as of now. We had a spell of lockdown for 8 days. The cases are rising and rising and… up to the highest height…. let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring. Oops, got a little carried away there. πŸ˜› My anxiety levels shot up for a few days but this time I was prepared to face it.

I went on a semi-hiatus from social media – blog included. I feel much better now. I think the ‘me time’ helped in getting back my mojo-jojo. πŸ˜€ I read 18 books this month. When did this happen? I remember telling Kate in the first week of July I have a lot of books to read this month. Until the 15th, I hardly read 5 books. I guess the ‘enthusiastic Rekha’ lodged in the left part of my brain is finally out of the shackles. Before the ‘psychiatrist’ in you diagnoses me as a ‘multiple personality’ let me tell you this. My mother did not have me tested – well, mostly because she knows I was born crazy. πŸ˜›

Uncertainty has been my best friend since 2014. Now, the whole world is trying to make friend with Mr Uncertainty so I am in for some serious competition. My quirky levels have hit the roof and I have ‘re’discovered the singer in me. Who knew I could bray better than a donkey? I didn’t. Did you? I have been recording songs in my ‘melodious’ voice and spamming my friends’ and family’s inboxes. Some of them have stopped talking to me for good.

This post has been everything except bookish talk. Let me throw in some bookish stuff before ending the post. (P.S. If you liked the crazy talk, I will include more of it in the next wrap up post. :P) I read a couple of interesting books this month. Meredith’s memoir was an inspirational read. Lucy Lakestone’s Risky Whiskey, Victoria Tait’s Fowl Murder and Dahlia Donovan’s Poisoned Primrose were some of the best cozy debuts I read this month. These three books have changed the way I have been looking at cozy mystery – it’s not just baking or handsome detectives anymore.

Before I started to book blog, I have been a binge reader kinda…em, reader? Or should I say binger reader? Did that make sense? Anyways, experimenting with reading different genres to avoid reader’s block isn’t working out for me. I am going to experiment with binge reading on series this coming month. Expect back-to-back reviews of a particular series this August. I hope I don’t go completely mental by the end of August. Or, maybe I can’t go more mental than what I am already am. πŸ˜›

If you are sane enough after reading the above paragraphs, Congratulations!! You will be contacted by the Daleks and your transformation will begin in 10rels. Adios!

  1. Weeping Angels were the best part of the new series! I’m an old school Doctor Who fan so the 2nd and 5th Doctors are my favourites. I didn’t watch them at the time but got a lot on VHS in the 90s.

    1. I like the concept of weeping angels – feeding off the potential energy by sending their victims to the past. I find them creepy – I haven’t gone near any statues after watching these episodes. Lol.πŸ˜‚
      The first few episodes (Doctor#1 and others) aren’t available on Prime Video.

  2. I enjoyed the Weeping Angels too, though yes they’re proper scary! What did you make of the gas mask children? I used to freak my mum out by sounding like them.

    1. Weeping angels are very scary. The next time I see a statue, I will make sure to stare at it and not blink. 😳
      The gas mask children were creepy too. My mum was freaked out seeing the Oods. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Oods are cute. Imagine the number of braids you can make out of their tentacles. πŸ€ͺ
      Btw, there is a man near my house who looks like a Sontaran, walks like a Sontaran… maybe, he is a Sontaran.😱
