Month End Update: March’16

Hello guys,

It’s been a long month and I hope that you all were able to do the things you wanted to do for this month.

My month in:


  • I wrote a fresh outline for Sinister Town and presently I’m tweaking it.


  • Baggage by S.G. Redling – 4/5
  • The Eighth Day by Joseph John – 5/5
  • Perfectly Broken by Lane Prescott – 1/5- DNF
  • Dying To Tell by T.J. O’Conner – 5/5
  • The Most Magnificient Thing by Asley Spires 4/5
  • Journey To Death by Russell Leigh – 1/5- DNF

I also did Beta ReadingΒ for a friend who needed help with her book. So far I’ve read only 1 chapter and because of my schedule, I’m going to take it slow next month as well.


Latest Releases:

  • The Revenant
  • Zootopia – My favourite so far!
  • London Has Fallen
  • Superman Vs Batman- The Dawn Of Justice

Old Ones:

  • The Dark Night Rises
  • Guardians Of The Galaxy
  • The Conjuring


  • I participated in Β a month-long book challenge and did pretty good for the first 11 days. Lol. After that, I kinda lost the track and went int hibernation mode (overall.) But the days I did post, were awesome!
  • This month my Instagram profile was literally on fire! I received tons of likes on almost all my pictures and I even got my first 100 likes on one of my pics (second one- My bookshelf). Other pics came quite close, some had 90+ likes, some 80+, etc. and I’m really happy for it πŸ™‚
  • Here are some of the best ones:

  • Attended Vishal’s best bud’s marriage – it was really fun! I got drunk (for the first time in last 1 year) and had a really bad hangover.
  • Made a new friend at the wedding. She’s really fun and, get this, a psychologist, who’s agreed to help me with my book’s research.
  • I completed Sly Cooper #3 – Thieves In Time (PS3) with the help of my super cool brother.
  • I also watched the 2nd and 3rd Seasons of Game Of Thrones. Started watching the 4th (2 episodes already down!)mysnooop2
  • Star World Premiere has announced that they’ll be airing Game Of Thrones Season 06 from 26th April (the day after it’s release!!!)
    After watching the last season, I can die happily… no, wait, I can die happily after reading Β Winds Of Winter. Yeah, that’s more like it πŸ˜€


  • I’m joining Camp NaNoWriMo next month!


  • My book blog, The Reading Bud, turned 2 years old this month! πŸ™‚

  1. Wow, sounds like you achieved so many things this month! Congrats on getting your book draft done, and hopefully the editing process isn’t too painful. That’s the time to question if your story makes sense πŸ˜€ That is a cozy reading corner you have – it looks soft and warm πŸ’•

    This month I’ve been working on editing my first book, about a third of the way through. I think I need to make more fun times for myself πŸ˜€

    • Hi, Mabel. So good to see you πŸ™‚
      And thanks for your wishes. I’m mostly busy with the release of my first novel but I really need to get the second book’s draft done and then have to revise it πŸ™‚
      And that’s great. Hope you’ll get through the editing soon (it took me months to get my first book’s editing done.)
      And you are right about that, fun keeps the brain fresh, so we really need it from time to time πŸ˜€


    • Thanks! Same here… I REALLY loved it!!! I wasn’t expecting much when I went in the theatre, but within a few seconds I was hooked and now I’m planning to go for it again! πŸ˜€
      Thanks for dropping by. appreciate it πŸ™‚


    • Bruce, I was just about to drop by your blog and tell you that I’m a new member of the Wonder Woman fan club! God, Gal Gadot was like a real Greek/Amazon Goddess!!!
      I LOVE her and Bats…. well, I’ve always loved him, but Ben Affleck​ really pulled it off. The last scene, where Bat is shown standing​ behind Lex Luthor in jail in the red lights, God! That really gave me chills. I mean Bat is looking so stud in this movie… God, if only I could marry him ❀
      Anyway, I'll try and get my hands on some Wonder Woman comics.stories ASAP! I can't wait to know more about her!!!

  2. Quite a productive month. πŸ™‚ Mine hasn’t been too bad. A few setbacks, but I’m keeping going. Looking forward to NaNo starting tomorrow. I think I’m about ready. A couple of last minute things to do. Are you ready?

    • Thanks! Wow, you’re really preparing.
      I’m also ready, NaNo has already begun here and thankfully last night I was able to get the outline of my novel straight and a few character traits.
      Rest I’m going to plan as I go.

      • Yeah, I’m planning a certain amount as I go. I just have the skeleton of the outline done. I started too late to get it done properly. πŸ™‚
        NaNo has now begun in the UK as well. But I won’t be writing while later. Nervous and excited to be begin. πŸ™‚

          • I’ve got a couple thousand words written. Today’s not going so well so far. I’m finding far t many ways to procrastinate. πŸ™‚ But, after doing this, I will get back to writing. Honest.

            • I hope you got more words written. I didn’t write anything at all. I got a little caught up with redesigning my book blog and creating its new Instagram profile. Lol.
              But I’m going to try and catch up tomorrow.

              • I did get some more written, but then yesterday was a loss, and today’s not going well either. I’m determined to catch up though. I hope you do too.
                It’s so easy to get distracted, especially by creating new pretty things. πŸ™‚

                    • That’s nice!
                      I’m doing surprisingly great! Lol! I got sick and missed 2-3 days completely, so when I started feeling better I went into overdrive. Pulled a 10K day once and the next day I pulled a 9K day. So I’m well ahead for now.
                      But my cough is rebounding again. I just hope it won’t be bad this time around.

                    • Wow, 10k and then 9k in one day!That’s impressive. Well done. πŸ™‚ I hope your cough isn’t too bad as well. These things just don’t respect our writing time! πŸ™‚


  3. I am always amazed at how much you accomplished during a month when I read these updates. I’ve had a lot of interruptions this month so I am behind in all my readerly-writerly activities. Glad to hear you had such a fantastic month.
