Favourite books from my library.


Follow up if reading is your devotion.

I hope you will appreciate my recommendation. Here are a few of my favourites from my library.

1) In a forest, a deer by Ambai (Translated from Tamil by Lakshmi Holmström)

In a forest, a deer

Intricate short stories which are profoundly relevant even today. Stories of women across places. Experiences, exploration, imagination, mythical- it’s all in one. This book reinvents short story forms.

2) The next person you meet in heaven by Mitch Albom

The next person you meet in heaven

Sequel to The five people you meet in heaven. I have one word to describe this book- Emotional. You do feel bad for Annie and Paulo (spoiler alert). The story is well crafted and a must-read to know-how meaningful relations are in our life.

3) The story that must not be told by Kavery Nambisan

The story that must not be told

A thought-provoking book. Dwells deep into life in slums. Along with Simon, you will also meet a few other characters in the story – who are poignant and unsettling.

4) The assassination of Margaret and other stories Thatcher by Hilary Mantel

The assassination of Margaret Thatcher

What a writer! Hilary Mantel has described the stories with such imagination that cut through peaks. Her insights are gifted through the stories. A must-read.

5) Tuesday’s with Morrie by Mitch Albom

Tuesday’s with Morrie

Okay! Mitch Albom is one of my favourite authors. I truly enjoy his writings. It’s because he touches the most important aspect of life – Relations. I have never seen or heard the relation of a student and a professor which is so deeply connected knowingly or unknowingly. The teachings or should I say – Lessons are so profound. I highly recommend this book to everyone possible.

6) Summer in Calcutta by Kamala Das

Summer in Calcutta

Kamala Das (also known as Kamala Surayya) needs no introduction, especially to poetry enthusiasts. If you haven’t read any of her poems – You should, only to understand how her thoughts get reflected into poetry.

One of my favourite poem from the book.

Happy Reading!
