Welcome to another monthly wrapup!
I will be honest, October was not a great reading month for me. I did read two books that I have to acknowledge that have made me look at life from a different viewpoint. First, I read Demian by Hermann Hesse and I really loved to concept and topics that were explored. You can check out my review DEMIAN BY HERMAN HESSE. I also started reading Paul Kalanithi’s book When Breath Becomes Air. So far, I am loving it and it is so heartbreaking and eye-opening. I hope you check it out. I also started reading Ursula K. Le Guin’s short story collection The Wind’s Twelve Quarters. It has been fascinating to read so far. I have enjoyed stories such as ‘Direction of the Road’. A story about the loss of importance as a result of industrialization told from the perspective of an Oak tree. Then there is also the famous psychomyth ‘The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas‘. A story that presents the abysmal solipsism of man and the contention of the trolley problem.
I watched a lot of dramas in October. I am yet to review a number of them, however here is a list of some of them. Some I was able to complete, others I am still watching. I started watching a lot of anime recently and it has been an eye-opening experience for me. Trust me, try them first!
- Record of Youth
- Parastye: The Maxim
- Attack on Titan
- Tokyo Ghoul
- Love is Sweet
- Perfect and Casual
Unlike my previous wrapups, I do not have any music recommendations. While I really enjoyed some songs this month. None of them really stood out.\
Thanks for reading. I hope you check out some of these recommendations!
