Funny Quotes from Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells

Murderbot Diaries written by Martha Wells is one of my favorite Science Fiction book series along with The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Ender's Game series. They are funny, action packed and narrated by a Secunit who just wants everyone to leave him alone so that it can binge watch its favourite shows.  So far five books have been released in Murderbot Diaries. All of them made me laugh several times. I had some photos of my favourite quotes from the series. So I decided to write them down in a single post to make things easier for me and anyone who loves this series as much as I do. Feel free to write your own favourite murderbot moment in the comment section. I'm sure you're going to enjoy reading these lines as much as I did. All Systems Red 1. Yes, talk to Murderbot about its feelings. The idea was so painful my efficiency dropped to 97 percent. 2. I liked the imaginary people on the entertainment feed more than way more than I liked the real ones, but you

  Been a while since I posted here. When there is a new post on my blog, it's about a book I read. But in the past three months, I haven't read a single book. However, there are some amazing books that I've been waiting to read this year.  First of them is A deadly education by Naomi Novik released on September 29. I've previously read one of her books Spinning Silver and was mesmerised by her writing style. That was the reason why I was eagerly waiting for her latest book. I've already got the ebook but a hardcover version might just suit me better. The reviews tells me that it is going to be an excited read. Rhythm of War by Brandon Sanderson is another one on my list. It is one of the most anticipated book of the year. Usually it takes me about 10-15 days to read a book in the stormlight archives series. However, unlike the last three books, this time I'm eyeing for a hardcover edition for those amazing illustrations they have inside the book . It's goi

Malayaputra, Vayuputra and Valmiki Tribes in Ram Chandra Series and Shiva Trilogy by Amish Tripathi

Image
 If you've read Amish Tripathi's books, you must have come across words like Malayaputras, Vayuputras, Parihan and Vasudevs. They are frequently mentioned in the books. Naturally, having never heard about them before, it makes us wonder about who these people really were and we want to know more about them. It's really exciting and enriching experience reading books by Amish because every time we get to know different things about our India, our Indian culture and our people. Vayuputras and Parihans Vayuputras tribe were first mentioned in Shiva Trilogy . It's the tribe left behind by Lord Rudra, the previous Mahadev before Lord Shiva. You might mistake Lord Rudra and Lord Shiva as the same person. From our ancient literature, we always thought of Rudra as another form of Lord Shiva. A fierce form. However, in Amish's books, they are both different people known as Mahadev whose mission was to erase evil from the world during their eras. In fact, during his war with

 Vikramaditya Veergatha is a mytho-fiction series by Shatrujeet Nath. Earlier, it was planned to be a trilogy known as Vikramaditya Trilogy. Later, it was called Vikramaditya Veergatha when it was decided that there will be four books in total instead of three.  All the books of the series were released at an interval of one and a half to two years.  The fourth book of the series, The Wrath of the Hellfires was going to be released in March 2020, but due to Covid-19 pandemic, the publisher could not manage to release it on time. Everyone including me were eagerly waiting for the fourth book and were very disappointed when it wasn't out. The book got delayed by nine months.  But the good news is that finally, The Wrath of the Hellfires , was recently on 20 December 2020. The book is now available for orders on amazon. Order it here-  https://amzn.to/31Uu3jl I've already ordered my copy as soon as it was available for pre-orders. I started reading Vikramaditya Veergatha back in

Best place to buy second hand books online in India

So often it happens that you want to read so many books, your Goodreads want to read list keeps getting bigger and bigger every year and yet you think twice before buying that book. Because buying books can be really expensive, especially if you like to read a lot.  I have bought lots of books over the years. And I enjoyed each of them. But after I'm done reading, I don't even open them again. There are books that are as exciting as the first time you read them (Kingkiller Chronicles for me). And there are books that aren't much fun the second time. Or the third. Instead, they get cornered in your shelf, eating dust. It would be much better if you can just buy used books at cheaper prices compared to Amazon and Flipkart. Books are magical and a second-hand book is the old magic spell. Luckily, there are websites where you can not just buy used books but sell your own.  I'm listing below websites where it's easy to find many used books at cheaper prices. 1. Bookis

Network Effect by Martha Wells Book Review

Hey everyone,                        A month ago I talked about a fantasy book Spinning Silver  by Naomi Novik. Here's a review  of it. I also completed reading a mammoth book, Oathbringer ( Stormlight Archives #3) in April. It was gifted by my friend on my birthday. Honestly, I didn't want to read this one at this time. I like reading Cosmere either in Winter or Monsoon. Anyway, here's where I talked about Stormlight Archive - Fantasy, Stormlight Archive and me.                     So far all the books I read this year belonged to the fantasy genre. Kings of the Wyld, Spinning Silver, The lightning tree, and Oathbringer. But then I drank one from my To Read list on Goodreads which is science fiction.  This is a review of the latest book of the recently popular Sci-Fi series Murderbot Diaries written by Martha Wells . The Murderbot Diaries is an action-packed science fiction series about a murderous, self hacking robot searching for the meaning of life.          The series

Fantasy, Stormlight Archives and me...

Image
Hey there, everybody Today I want to talk about a fantasy series I have recently been obsessed with. Stormlight Archives by Brandon Sanderson.  My fascination with fantasy and Science Fiction dates back to my childhood when I used to read lots of comics and stories in newspaper edition of Saturday. Stories filled with magic, adventure, romance and secret treasures.  It made me love this genre. But the best part about reading fiction is it indirectly teaches you a lot. Some stories are open for interpretation of the readers. While others are happily ever after kind. While, it's natural for anyone to hate the one with a sad ending, if you look at it from another angle you might get why it had to be so.  This reminds me of a quote from my favourite fantasy series, Kingkiller Chronicles. It goes, " It's the questions we can't answer that teach us the most. They teach us how to think. If you give a man an answer, all he gains is a little fact. But give him a question and h
