Really Random Tuesdays #6

Hello Everyone, Welcome to yet another installment of Really Random Tuesdayshosted by a very beautiful  blogger, Suko. I hope you guys are having a great week!

I started off this month with high hopes of completing 31 Shots of Shock, but midway through October I simply could not read for some days and before I knew I was way way way behind. Well, my only respite is not completing this challenge, but I have really liked reading horror stories after a long long time. I am proud of myself for doing as much as I have, without really crying out loud and waking up, shrieking at nights.

I am reading A Picture of Dorian Gray for Dueling Monsters ending in a few days. I am not yet really into the novel, but I hope to be in some time, hopefully before the time is up. With these 2 commitments I have realized something about me, which I have known all the way, but was not ready to accept until these failures. The fact is I am not cut out for commitments. I think everything else in life has to be completed before deadline, so I like to never set any deadlines or try to discipline my reading habits. I like to be lazy about it and I like to have the choice of not wanting to read the book at all… these are the reasons, silly ones, stupid ones indeed because of which I think I should never try these things again. But I will still try LOL!

There are so many good covers these days, so it is totally difficult to chose one…but this has been a favorite from the time I saw it  on Nely’s beautiful Blog


And how can I end this post without a pic of Aarya :o)…his grandparents were here to play with his 2 weeks back and they bought him this cute lil dress…

Hope you guys have a wonderful week ahead.

  1. Veens, you have done great with your reading challenges. I’d never be able to read as many stories as you have for any challenge.

    I hope you do read The Picture of Dorian Gray because it is a wonderful, classic story by Oscar Wilde. I think you will really like it.

    That is the cutest, sweetest picture of Aarya with his grandparents! 🙂

    Thank you for making my Tuesday, Veens. 🙂

  2. I didn’t do well for the reading challenges this year, with the reading mood change, life gets into the way and all those stuff but then those challenges are all for fun, isn’t it? 🙂

    That’s a great pic of Aarya and his grandparents!

  3. Veens, I am redoing my first comment.

    That photo of Aarya and his grandparents is beautiful. He is the cutest baby!

    That cover is gorgeous, and one I haven’t seen before.

    Good luck with your reading challenges. You have done so well already. 🙂

  4. I’m doing the Dueling Monsters readalong too! I just finished Dorian Gray and ended up really liking it.

    I used to be the same way–I never liked to structure my reading. But, I have recently found a few challenges that are either very flexible (meaning I can fit most anything I read into them) or along the lines of what I tend to read anyway. Being very selective about which challenges I join has helped increase my success rate! Good luck with your challenges 🙂

    Aarya is absolutely adorable!

  5. Love the pic with the grandparents. Reminds me that I need to get one with Gage this week before my parents leave 🙁

  6. ‘think everything else in life has to be completed before deadline, so I like to never set any deadlines or try to discipline my reading habits. I like to be lazy about it and I like to have the choice of not wanting to read the book at all…’ – I can so relate to this. That’s the reason I think I will stop doing Challenges, and read whatever I want to, for the pleasure of reading it. That’s the way it was meant to be. But some challenges are really hard to resist, too. 🙂

    Lovely pic of Aarya, and the cover is simply beeautiful. 🙂

  7. Aw, Aarya is so adorable!

    I’m not very good at challenges either. I rebel against myself! I do try to read from something of a schedule but I have to break free every so often or I just don’t want to read.

  8. I don’t know why but I just can’t get excited about books about vampires, werewolves, etc.

    Aarya is just so darn cute. Make sure you put “kaala tikka” on him everyday. So when can he start dating? 😛

  9. Oh my Aarya is growing so fast. He’s way too cute. I know that feeling when you start to slip behind in your reading (31 shots). Oh well. Challenges are supposed to be fun, not stress.

  10. Veens, I don’t think I’m cut out for challenge commitments either! 🙂
    Ah well, just have as much fun as you can.

    Such a cute family picture. Hope you are enjoying the weekend.

  11. I hear you–I’m not cut out for committments either. But don’t be too hard on yourself about Dorian Gray–I thought it was really tough reading! Jekyll & Hyde was a lot easier.

    Aarya looks so cute with his little tongue poking out!

    And thank you for your very very sweet comment on the baby post. 🙂 You are the sweetest Veens and oh how I missed you while you were away on your blogging break (though I understand you had your hands full with your little angel). Hugs to you, my friend.

I love to hear your thoughts!
