March 2021 Reads

March was NOT a good month reading wise – with travel, hectic work time lines and in general a LOT of stress – I didn’t really feel like reading. I managed to read 3 books this month and I’ve started my 4th but it doesn’t seem likely that I will finish it soon. Each of…

Books| To Be Jack Sparrow Or Not To Be

I bet that title has you all confused! Hah! In the past few years my reading had gone down a lot – I got into the habit of picking up books at the airport or randomly at the mall. But since I’ve finally gotten down to reading again in the past year, I face the…

Review | The Last Queen By Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

January 2021 Reads

The first month of the year saw me get through a few books. I usually target 2 books a month but despite being extremely busy this month I managed to read 4 books. When I say read I mean I read 2 books and listened to 2 on audibles (that counts, right?). Though I’m still…

My First Experience With an Audible Book

I finally finished listening to my first audible book – Atomic Habits by James Clear. I say “finally” because it took me longer than I expected. I spend around 1 hour each day commuting to-from work and to be more productive during this hour I decided to spend it listening to audiobooks. This audiobook is…

5 Underrated Books That I Absolutely Loved

A lot of books have impacted me throughout my life – some famous, some infamous and some lost in the folds of time. These are books from across genres that moved me or thrilled me beyond my imagination. These aren’t unknown books (since the authors are known ones) but in my opinion they deserved a…
