    I have heard people say that I don’t read indian authors. They haven’t read the right authors perhaps. Thanks for the recommendation

      Exactly. And it is not that all international authors are great writers.

    Very very interesting list! Sadly, I haven’t read any of them. Some of them are on my TBR list, some I haven’t heard of. Adding them to my TBR list. Thanks.

    Inside my head, I kept thinking Ghachar Ghochar is a lengthy book and will require an immense amount of commitment but you cleared that misconception. So definitely taking this as my next read.

    Sadly, I haven’t read any of these books. Thanks for sharing this. This makes me think I don’t read Indian authors much. Got to rectify this situation.

    You are a voracious reader, Ritu. 8 in a day? Wow! I have not read any of them but will surely add them to my pending list. Would like to listen to Rahul Bose narrating though.

    I badly needed this list not bcoz I don’t like novels but with twins parenting it’s a bit challenging. This list will help me to complete my reading challenge for sure. Thanks, Ritu for sharing.

      I was just lamenting to Sona that this year I haven’t read many Indian books. Thank you for this list! Now I’m sorted. I have read Bombay Balchao (loved it) and Ghachar Ghochar (ending was meh).

    Thank you for this lovely list of short books. I have been searching for some light reads but in vain. I like the idea of giving Amazon link and GoodReads to the readers. Have marked 2 from your list.

      I always find it a task to search the book on Goodreads when I finish reading a review. Just implemented something I find convenient myself.
