Mailbox Mondays: July 07, 2014


Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued.

Not too many books this week as I am still trying to finish my older book reviews before accepting fresh ones.

Books I got this week

Books I got this week

I received a review copy of Fade into Red by the author Reshma K.Barshikar. It’s her début novel. From what I understand, this is a multi-cultural story spanning Mumbai and Tuscany. Art also plays a big role in the book. Based on just these three words – multi-cultural, art, and Tuscany, I happily agreed to review the book and am looking forward to it.

Bubble Wrap by Kalyani Rao is a book that deals with child marriage (an accepted social evil that used to occur in India nearly 100 years ago, it probably happens even now in rural areas but it’s against the law). The premise of the book sounds grim, but I am hoping it won’t be all grim without any silver lining in the vicinity. Let’s see how it goes.

Which books did you receive last week? Which ones are you looking forward to reading?

    Fade to Red does sound good. You can add the world ‘vineyard’ to multi-cultural, art and Tuscany!
