I’m not much into book reading challenges because it takes away the joy of reading from me. I’m quite an old school when it comes to correlating books with happiness.
My breathing issues resurfaced in January, leaving me with very little energy or motivation to write. Instead of feeling miserable about the situation, I decided to spend those sleepless nights reading as I literally continued huffing and puffing. So, I ended up completing 14 books and leaving two midway in January. Right now I’m reading 4 books.
Here are the details of books I read-
- The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osborne (my best read of the month)
- The Guest List by Lucy Foley
- Best Served Cold by Bhaskar Chattopadhyay
- 5.Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
- 6.Gunning for the Godman by Ajay Lamba and Sanjeev Mathur
- The itsy bitsy spyder by Apeksha Rao
- How to be a writer by Ruskin Bond
- Dasavatara by Piyusha Vir
- A suitable boy by Vikram Seth
- Murder is Easy by Agatha Christie
- And there were none by Agatha Christie
- The TMYS December review by Koral Dasgupta & TMYS team.
- Chumki and the elephants by Lesley Denise Biswas
- Girls and the city by Manreet Sodhi Someshwar
All books have been reviewed on Amazon and Goodreads (if updated).
Not mentioning the books I left midway, both of which are famous and critically acclaimed.
Currently reading –
- Each of us killers by Jenny Bhatt
- Along came a spyder by Apeksha Rao
- Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott.
- The artist’s Way by Julia Cameron
As we begin February, I hope that I can continue my reading pace while getting back to writing the second novel.
