It has been a while since I shared a reading update. June started on a high note with Pride Month reads and summer picks. But it has also been an eventful summer. As always, books have come to the rescue keeping me sane through it all.
One of the highlights of summer at Blogchatter is the #BlogchatterEbook carnival. A platform for authors in the community to get published. And a delight for book lovers to sample a range of books, free for a limited time.
It’s July. Among all the things I look forward to this month (including a well-deserved long weekend), is the book freak out tag. As much as I enjoy participating in the tag, I also enjoy reading all the posts from the book community. The graphs, the statistics, and last but not the least, the recommendations.
Set in the times of the Bengali renaissance, Chronicles of the Lost Daughters explores the socio-cultural politics of 19th-century Bengal including caste hierarchies, real-life figures, and events. A thought-provoking read that will have you turning the pages.
Happy June! It has been an excellent reading month with titles across genres. And not a single DNF. As we step into the LGBTQ+ Pride Month, I plan to diversify my reads concentrating on more queer books. Particularly by Asian authors.
Hello there! Been a while. It is great to be back after a mini-hiatus of sorts. And I am all raring to go, sharing what I have been reading lately.
An illustrative symbol of women empowerment. That is what perfectly defines Aanandi by Jyoti Jha. The story of a remarkable young girl. An inspiring story of a determined woman to be self-reliant.
Happy March! February was a good reading month with a mixed bag of books in all shapes and sizes. It had me veering towards lighter reads. Always a mood booster.
Trees in attack mode with poisonous pollen. An all-too-real climate apocalypse. Clean Air is a rousing examination of the repercussions of environmental destruction and the enduring trauma of loss.
Can’t believe it’s already February! One of my blogging goals for this year is to share a reading wrap-up and try and review each book. Read on as I share what I have been reading and the books I am planning to pick up.
