Book Review: The Immortals of Meluha

‘The Immortals of Meluha’ is based on Lord Shiva’s life, so I'd heard. Being a devotee of the lord, I dropped everything to read it myself. In the very first chapter itself I realized that the book is not based on... Continue Reading →

Excerpt – If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller

The novel you are reading wants to present to you a corporeal world, thick, detailed. Immersed in your reading, you move the paper knife mechanically in the depth of the volume: your reading has not yet reached the end of... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Interpreter of Maladies

#MyThoughts: No writer has the eye for details to real life situations as Lahiri. Interpreter of Maladies that won the Pulitzer Award is deeply enthralling with simple but intensely emotional short stories that change your perspective of a lot of matters.... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Such a Long Journey

I wonder why we never get to hear much about good books like Rohinton Mistry’s ‘Such a Long Journey’ quite contrary to the books that stand tall in bookshops but have nothing to appease a serious reader’s appetite. 'Such a Long... Continue Reading →

Time to Hibernate

Hullo friends! I hope you all are fantastic. I wish so because I am not really in the best state of mind myself, of late. Know what I just realised? I am of the habit of writing 'hello' 'hullo' because that's... Continue Reading →

Book Review: My Cousin Rachel

I would love to believe that it is this very thought that set the tones for 'My Cousin Rachel' for Miss Maurier. One likes to wish! I wondered how it could be that two people who had loved could yet... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Imperfectionists

#MyThoughts: Sometimes, it's good too take a chance with books and authors unheard of. As a reader, I'm quite eccentric. If I'm trying an author for the first time, I check out their quotes. Well, and if the quotes stick with... Continue Reading →

The First Book I Read

The love for reading is a welcome inheritance from my father. I couldn’t have had it any other way. I wouldn’t have! I can hardly recall when I began reading books by myself. But what I do remember is that... Continue Reading →

Book Nerd Quirks

Have you ever lied to your parents or friends? Because you had your heart in a book! Have you ignored people, consciously cruelly? Because you had your heart in a book! Have you had sleepless nights? Because you had your... Continue Reading →

Writing Styles for Writers

And it's 2 months down already. Can you believe it? Anyway! It's been a while I wrote about 'what are writing styles' and I won't shy away from confessing that I'd totally forgotten about the follow-up post I'd promised to do. Nevertheless,... Continue Reading →
