This is a round-up of some of the books we've read in 2021 so far.
Here are some of my thoughts on the book "The Monk who sold his Ferrari" and what I've learnt from reading the book.
I sleep better when I have a good book to read. I simply can't fall asleep without reading. My daughter too wants to be read to before she dozes off. She tells me she'll have bad dreams otherwise! When I don't have an interesting book at hand or on my e-reader, even sleeping becomes just … Continue reading The Woman on the Orient Express- a Book Review
Most of the time, I don't finish the book I begin reading. There... I said it! A fancy cover or a good review prompts me to pick a book, but a few pages in, I lose interest or the plot is too scary or sad or something, and I just set it aside and grab another. I … Continue reading My Reading habit and Book Reviews
A lot has been said about "Big Magic", written by Elizabeth Gilbert, author of "Eat Pray Love". I found the book so compelling, I HAD to share all the things I learnt as I read it.... Big Magic is a book about a touch of Magic and a ton of hard work. I wonder why … Continue reading Big Magic – a Book Review

Even as I write this, I know I will fail to do justice to this outstanding book. Still... I want to share my … Continue reading The Palace of Illusions- Book Review
Do you feel stressed? Bummed-out? Bored? All the above? Or are you just looking for the next good read? I have a suggestion for you- Just pick up Mrs. Funnybones, make yourself a nice cup of coffee and read it. I bet in no time (it took me about a couple of days, but, probably … Continue reading Mrs. Funnybones- a book review

I'm all over the place, slipping and sliding again." - Megan, a central character's thoughts in the book. Isn’t that deep and beautiful? In a sad way? … Continue reading The Girl on the Train- a Book Review
I finally read a whole book! It had been so long since the last time I did. And nothing beats the satisfaction of having finished a book or a Blog post. Really! The book, "A Pig in Provence", is written by Georgeanne Brennan. It's a memoir about the American author's life in Provence, her love … Continue reading A Pig in Provence- Book Review
