I’m back with another post to celebrate the Indian Lit readathon which starts in less than 48 hours from now, and I can’t contain my excitement. To promote this lovely occasion, my dear friends have created this tag whose prompts are based on some delicious Indian sweets and I can’t wait to answer them all. I’m also trying to mention only books by Indian authors, or atleast Asian so that I can promote more of Indian literature, which I myself am not very knowledgeable about.
- Link back to either one of the original creator’s post (Nandini | Charvi | Shruti)
- Include the graphic above in your post
- Tag a few of your friends and have fun!
HOLIGE: AN UNDERRATED BOOK YOU LIKE TO RECOMMEND
Definitely A Spark of White Fire. It’s such a brillaint genre bending novel, that I’m appalled at how few ratings it has on Goodreads. I will never stop gushing about it and hopefully I’ll finish sequel during this readathon and then talk about it too.
JALEBI: A BOOK THAT SURPASSES YOUR EXPECTATIONS
I never read middle grade novels and I previously hadn’t enjoyed Roshani’s writing style much, but Aru Shah and the End of Time blew all my expectations away and I had such fun reading it.
RASGULLA: YOUR BOOKISH OTP
I really can’t think beyond Dimple and Rishi. They are a delight together and I loved reading their romance.
GULAB JAMUN: A BOOK THAT EVERYONE WOULD ENJOY
I actually haven’t read this book yet (only because I can’t find it in US), but my dear friends swear that it’s awesome and very enjoyable with lots of mysteries, so I think it’s something everyone would have fun reading.
KALAKAND: A BOOK YOU DEVOURED IN A SINGLE SITTING
Nisha’s debut My So-Called Bollywood Life for sure. Devoured is exactly the right word for describing how I read this book.
PETHA: A RARE BOOK YOU OWN
It’s not exactly rare but I did have to search a while to find the brilliantly written and translated Aavarana.
SOAN PAPDI: A BOOK YOU WISH HAD A SEQUEL
It’s not exactly a sequel, but I definitely wish there would be another book similar to A Thousand Beginnings and Endings, retelling more myths and legends of Asia.
KAJU KATLI: A BOOK YOU THINK IS WORTH THE HYPE
The Palace of Illusions is very critically acclaimed and I totally believe that it’s worth all the accolades and the hype.
