#3| Hapiness is| Books

Day 3 of my “Happiness Is” photo series. If you haven’t already, do check out my first two posts too! I’ve been reading since I was 6-7 years old. My parents inculcated this habit in me since I was very young. I love reading – it’s such an easy way to escape into another world….

6 | Review | A Horse Walks into a Bar by David Grossman

This book has been a real challenge for me to read. I bought it in January and finally finished it a few days back in July! Before you start judging the book too badly, it won the ‘The Man Booker International Award’ in 2017. STORY: Dovaleh Greenstein is an ageing comedian who is performing a…

1 | Review|Novel – “Persepolis” by Marjane Satrapi

My best friend gifted me this novel three years back when I was moving cities. In all the craze of unpacking, the novel got lost in all my stuff. Recently while packing to move again, I found the book hidden in a corner. “Persepolis” is an illustrated novel written by Marjane Satrapi about the revolution…

Unrequited Love – Novels

Discover prompt for yesterday was “hidden”. The first thought that popped into my head was hidden, unrequited love. So many of us go through our lives not being able to tell the ones we love how we feel for various reasons. Here are some novels with such stories that really moved me – A Tale…

Just reading the daily prompt “magic” got a big smile on my face because I instantly knew what I wanted to write about! “Whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.” – J. K. Rowling How can some place I’ve never been to and…

Enid Blyton – The Forgotten Storyteller

I’m not sure how many millennials would have even heard about Enid Blyton but my journey into reading started when my mother put the “5 O’Clock Tales” in my 6 year old hands. Enid Blyton was the only author my mom trusted her young children with reading and thus between the ages of 6-10 years,…

Must Read Books – Indian Mythology

I have never been big on reading Indian authored novels mainly because I found them very hard to relate with. Even when the Shiva Trilogy by Amish Tripathi garnered a lot of appreciation, I chose to not read his novels. 4-5 months back on a random Sunday I decided to borrow a book from my…

#2: The life-changing manga of tidying up

Reading, writing and traveling were things on my to-do list for 2019 and they are all off to a rocky start. I’m on my way to Delhi from where I was supposed to embark on a trip to Bir to do paragliding, due to the bad weather I had to cancel the trip while at…

Book Review#1: Last Man in Tower by Aravind Adiga

Till about 2 years back, I used to read about 50+ books a year. Reading was a habit inculcated in me when I was much younger. By the time my age had reached the double digits, I used to devour books. My mum is an English teacher which probably explains my reading habit. I would…
