April 2021 Reads + Book Review

This is going to be a short post considering I barely read anything this month. With everything that happened this month, reading was extremely low on my list of to-do activities. I instead chose to spend my free time watching re-runs of comfort shows like Gilmore Girls, Modern Family and The Middle. If you’re wondering…

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…

Book Review | Circe By Madeline Miller

‘Circe‘ by Madeline Miller is my second read for this month. After reading ‘The Song of Achilles’ I had this crazy urge to read everything Madeline has ever written. A lot of you, also, recommended the book in my review post of ‘The Song of Achilles’ . And so with really high expectations, I sat…

My September Reads

After not reading at all in August, I set myself a reasonably doable target of reading two novels in September – a target that I thankfully managed to achieve! (YAYAY!) I finally finished reading ’50 Greatest Short Stories’ a book that I have had for a few years now but just postponed reading. I also…

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…
