Spotlight Sunday: #12 One with the scorching summer

Hello book people,

I reached Dubai yesterday and once again the city has reminded of how can never be prepared enough for its summer. Less than 24 hours in the city and I am already complaining about the heat, what is wrong with me right? Wait till YOU face 45 degree Celsius before you judge me.

What I read this week

Okay now that I got the steam outta my system, let me talk about the books that I read last week alright?

1 A Thousand Perfect Notes by C G Drews aka Paperfury – I love Paperfury. I started this with loads of expectations based on herself and her blog and she didn’t fail me. You SHOULD DEFINITELY READ THIS, if you read YA!

2 Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta – I read this book as part of my A-Z challenge. This Australian young adult was intriguing and I didn’t put it down till the last page.

3 One hundred years of solitude by Gabriel García Márquez – I am almost done with this long saga and I honestly don’t know what to think of it. I hope I will form an opinion by the time I finish reading it, but bear with me as it is taking a lot of time.

Now that I am back I have my blogging, I have my schedule filled up and I am gonna post a lot. Don’t mind me!


I will be linking today’s post with Caffeinated reviewer’s Sunday post Meme.

  1. 113F? Eep. I would melt. I hope your air conditioning works well! Of course, I’m not sure that 101F (38C) with 98% humidity is that much better, and we’ve certainly had days like that here where I live — though not yet this summer. I think the worst this year so far was 98F, with about 70% humidity. Still too hot for my taste! Stay in and stay cool!

    • My normal summer days have about 30-40% humidity right now. Note that the end of July and beginning of August is expected to be worse and am already dreading it.

  2. I keep hearing that 100 Years of Solitude is Marquez’s best book but I know people also have split opinions when it comes to his writing anyway. I’ve only ever read Love in the time of cholera.

    45 degrees? OMG. I lived in a country that had 32-34 degree heat all year round but 45? I was actually planning to visit my friend in Dubai too but after hearing that? No thanks. 😛

    • It is just not the high temperature, the high humidity kills us. You can visit Dubai from Oct – March, during the pleasanter times.

  3. It’s a lot less hot here (although still hot) so I am NOT judging lol. Complain away! 🙂

    A Thousand Perfect Notes and One Hundred Years of Solitude both sound great to me.

  4. I can’t imagine 45 degrees! The 40 degrees here keeps me indoors! So glad to hear you are back. Can’t wait for your reviews on A Thousand Perfect Notes and 100 year’s of Solitude. ♥️♥️

  5. Ahhhh, I so want to pick up A Thousand Perfect Notes! I have a copy, but I haven’t gotten the chance to read it yet. I’m really excited though; I’ve heard nothing but good things!

  6. I so am complaining also, which bastards keep reminding me to keep my mouth shut as snow and -40 shall soon com by.. I’m sorry fellow canadians, but my meds allow me to overheat faster; and eeeh in a heatwave, it’s not the best xF

    We reached 40/45 degrees too. I’d say 21 is more than enough.. so doubled, YIKES ! not even 5mins and My head starts spinning and my energy levels hits low x)

    • I love the lower 20s too. And the least we get is around 14s, which is kinda rare. I can’t imagine -40 at all..
