Read-India-Thon: Sign-Up and TBR

Next week is India’s Independence Day and I always have this feeling that there’s not much I can do to celebrate this wonderful day because I don’t live in India anymore. So, it was a wonderful feeling to find out about another Indian literature based readathon taking place during this week. It’s being hosted by Shantala @ Shanaya Tales and you can find all the details about Read-India-Thon by clicking here.

The readathon is taking place from Aug 11-17th and it has 3 challenges:

  1. Read a book by an Indian author
  2. Read an Indian book under 24 hours
  3. Read a book with the Indian Tri-Color on the cover

I’m not sure how many of these challenges I will be able to complete but I’m definitely gonna be trying for 1 & 2. And below are a couple of the books on my TBR.


This one has been on my TBR for quite a while now, but it released in the US very recently and I had to purchase it immediately. I will definitely be reading this one for the readathon. I hope this one qualifies for challenge 3 as well because I spot some saffron (somewhere) along with a good dose of white and green.


I totally forgot that I got this book from the library and I have to return it in 2 days, so this is definitely gonna be my first read for this readathon. And I have a feeling I should be able to read it within 24 hours, because the first book The Widows of Malabar Hill was also a very fast paced read.

Below are some other books that I own but havent planned to read anytime soon. But if I do find time this week or am in the mood, I might pick up one of these too.

I’m very excited I’m getting to participate in this Read-India-Thon and I hope some of my friends in the book community are too…. Let me know if you have any other recommendations for me.

  1. This is so awesome! And such great picks! I haven’t read any of these books. Though I have been DYING to read Sita. So I’d love to know how you find it.

    Honestly I wanted to buy it as soon as it released in India, but at that time it did not release here in US. And then when it did release, I was on a book-buying ban. Sigh.

    So consider this fair warning, but I am totally planning to live vicariously through you. 😀

    Oh and I definitely see saffron on there – near the R of Chitra. So you are definitely cool for the tri-color challenge. 🙂

    1. Haha thank you for confirming the saffron thing 😂😂😂
      And I’m very excited to read this book and I’ll totally let you know how I feel about it 😊😊😊 … I actually bought the kindle edition during amazon prime day deals, so bought quite a few that day…
