The Mask Diaries by Abhinav Goel is one of my more interesting reads of late. I have been reading it over the weekend, and am quite intrigued by what seems to be a very unusual story about a dysfunctional father and son relationship. Here’s a teaser:
It’s been a long time since I did a Mailbox Monday post. I get my book deliveries both at home and office, and collating everything in one place and taking a photo seems to be an impossible task (and I know I have no logical reason for it). However, in the last couple weeks or so, books have been really tumbling into the house, and the only way I can keep track of what’s come in, and what I plan to read and review is through this Mailbox Monday post.
So, without further ado, here are the books I received starting from left to right.
Excuse me for the rather shabby shot of the book cover in my featured image. The thing is, when one so deeply invests in second-hand books, it’s very difficult to take a good shot of it – without having something else in the frame to prettify it up. In this case, my bag #booksandbags.
Anyway, enough rambling, and let’s get on with a short and concise review of the book, shall we? In this case, directly contrary to the style of the book – long and rambling.
Not that there’s anything wrong with long, rambly books. In fact, in the right mood, I rather adore them.
There was a time when I avidly read and re-read Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone books.
For those not aware, here is a brief introduction to the series. Way back in 1982, Sue Grafton published A is for Alibi – the first of a series of alphabet mysteries featuring private eye Kinsey Millhone.
This book became a huge hit, and Grafton followed up this success with other books B is for Burglar, C is for Corpse, and so on. You get the drift. It’s now 2017, and I just finished reading the latest in this series X – published in 2015.
