Welcome to this week’s Mailbox Monday which is hosted this month by Marcia at The Mailbox Monday Blog.
Random House India again very kindly sent over a wonderful collection of books.
I have long been curious about A Case of Exploding Mangoes by Mohammed Hanif, but not curious enough to actually pick it up and give a read. When it came highly recommended from the chappie from Random House, I knew I had to give it a go. Reviews that say it’s a little like Catch-22 and because it’s set in my favorite time period of Pakistani history vaults this book right to the top of my TBR list.
The next one is some easy reading from Sophie Kinsella/Madeleine Wickham – The Wedding Girl, and then comes Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri – a book of short stories about the immigrant experience among Indian Bengalis in the United States.
I received A Mysterious Death at Sainik Farms directly from the author Rukmani Anandani (through her publisher Rupa Publications). I just finished reading it over the weekend, and it’s a nice pleasant, cozy mystery in the classic Christie-esque style. My review will be up shortly on the blog.
So those are the books I received last week. It’s a list I am quite excited about. Have you read these books? What books did you receive?
