I’ve been reading Sharp Objects – Gillian Flynn’s début novel, and I am torn at how much I admire her dreamy, descriptive writing style, and how repulsed I am by some of the goings-on in this book.

Ten Underrated Books That I’ve Read In The Past Year Or So

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, it’s all about underrated or hidden gems that we’ve read within the last year or so.

Some of these are pretty popular among book bloggers, but I am surprised how these books are not on the bestseller lists in India where I live.

Top Ten 2016 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get Around To

Hello and welcome to my first Top Ten Tuesday of 2017.

Last year, I dropped the ball on this meme, and really all memes, but I thought I’d revive at least this one. I ended up with just nine books for this meme, not because I read everything else released last year, but because these books are the only ones I regret missing out on. You can be sure they ended up on my TBR list for 2017.

When I first read Harry Potter, I wasn’t too impressed. If I remember right, it took me until The Prisoner of Azkaban to actually get on to the Harry Potter bandwagon. Now reading the Cameron Strike series by Rowling/Galbraith, I find myself having a similar opinion.

I didn’t care too much about the first and second books in the series – The Cuckoo’s Calling and The Silkworm, but now after reading Career of Evil, I think I am finally getting into this series as well.

Midnight Sun by Jo Nesbo is the second book in the Blood on Snow (Fisherman) trilogy by Jo Nesbo. I thought this was a standalone book when I picked it up, and when I realized it was part of a series, I was apprehensive I wouldn’t be able to understand the plot. Thankfully, I had no issues with it, and in every way, it reads like a standalone book.

For the past couple of months, I’ve been trying to read books with a little more substance, but to be honest, now, I have such little time to read that I need page-turners. Something to get into quickly and something that diverts my mind from my overflowing inbox at work, and kids’ demands at home.

I recently read The Monsoon Murders by Karan Parmanandka, and this really worked for me as a short, thrilling, and easy to read book, and I enjoyed it very much.
