I read most of this, according to The Serial Reader I‘ve read more than 70% of it but gave up after the chapter of beating up a girl for absolutely no reason.

This felt more like a thriller than a non-fiction. They say reality is stranger than fiction and I wholeheartedly agree.

Different from my usual genre of books, this book (in my very limited viewpoint) is all about how Indians have migrated all over the country and world and the various reasons for the same.

This cozy mystery cozy-mysteried so hard! Such a cute book with completely lovable characters and the protagonist Vera‘s quirky nature was an absolute delight.

Unlikely Animals | Annie Hartnett

Pickpick

“That‘s why we like living with animals so much; they exhibit their joy so outwardly, remind us how to be better alive.”

What I thought would be a cute book about animals (clearly I did not read the synopsis before picking up this book) turned out to be so much better than my imagination. Loved how the book was from a POV of dead characters and all the unique representations of the different animals was just 🤌🏽

U for A to Z challenge!

Also please recommend books to read starting with Q!!!

wanderinglynn I thought the story‘s organization was a disjointed but overall, an interesting story. 3mo
wanderinglynn Another one, also nonfiction, & I thought this one was well presented: 3mo
Cosmos_Moon @wanderinglynn I was going to mention Quiet, as well… went through my “read” list and this was my only Q. It was a good nonfiction about the power of introversion. 3mo
SanjanaGhosh @wanderinglynn @Cosmos_Moon Thank you, have decided to go with Quiet ♥️ 3mo

“Good books were like amazing sunsets or awe inspiring landscapes, better enjoyed with someone else. There was no greater experience in the world than sharing the love of a book, discussing its finer points and reliving the story all over again.”

This one is heavy on the heart. I am ashamed to admit that I was woefully unaware of the genocide in Cambodia. After reading this, I read up on the same and I wonder why we as kids are not taught about this in history.

This is the perfect serial killer book to start your weekend night with. The twists kept coming and I was not able to decipher it until the very end.

Chloe, a fully functioning adult has her own practice and is also set to marry soon. But her past keeps catching up with her. Her father was arrested after he murdered a bunch of local teenage girls and now on the twentieth anniversary of the same, history seems to be repeating itself again.

I remember going to book fairs in winter in Kolkata as a kid where Papa would inevitably end up buying books by Russian authors for me. Why Russian is beyond me, and I was always too young for these books....glad to be finishing one of those very books though ~20 years later today :)

I am currently finishing off books which have been on my shelf unread since more than 15 years atleast! Here goes one!

While this book was good for the adventurous soul, it has certain racial undertones which I'm sure was acceptable at the time but will not work today.

Ruthiella Yes, that‘s often an issue with older books. 🙁 8mo
