I received an interesting set of books by different publishers this week.

  • The City of Devi by Manil Suri is an interesting book for sure. I am halfway into it, and it’s gripping and well-written. It’s a dystopia set in Mumbai and although I am not very fond of dystopian fiction, this one has certain interesting elements that make me want to keep on reading.
  • The Homing Pigeons by Sid Bahri comes highly recommended by Shashi Tharoor no less. I don’t know much about this book, but it sounds like a mature love story, and I am looking forward to reading it.
  • The Secrets of the Dark by Arka Chakravarthi is a Fantasy book based in India. It seems I haven’t had enough of Fantasy even after reading all the books in A Song of Ice and Fire series and so I signed up for this book without actually knowing anything about this book at all. Let’s see how it goes…

What books did you receive this week? What are you looking forward to reading?
