For a change, I am going to avoid the usual introduction bit that I do on my posts and jump right in – The prompt I chose for February was ‘A Fantasy Novel by an Asian Author’ and the number of suggestions that popped up on Goodreads was mind blowing. However, there’s always something special … More
When it comes to any book to screen adaptations, like most readers, I am as precious as you can be. I could talk all night about why books are better than the movies and how I will ALWAYS read the books first, before watching the screen adaptation. With a series as expansive as ASOIAF, there … More
After what has been a super exhausting week, finally there is some light at the end of the tunnel as we’ve now been blessed with a ‘Lockdown Exit Plan’ *Books off 22nd June immediately!!* Unsurprisingly, I have found my lost motivation – blogging can be HARD WORK – and I am back to spam your … More
When I give it a thought, it is incredible, the number of great books and authors I have been introduced to thanks to long haul flights. Between the years 2011 – 2015 I moved back and forth between Mumbai and Manchester about 4 times. And it is not easy moving countries, let alone continents. But … More
