New Year, New Books!

Reading is sheer pleasure. You can never get bored if you find pleasure in reading. This year did not go smooth for my reading yet I managed to read some good (And some not so good) books, 32 to be precise!

Currently I am reading Just The Way You Are by Sanjeev Ranjan that I have received from Random House India for review. The Nidhi Kapoor Story by debutant Saurabh Garg, The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri and Four Miles to Freedom by Faith Johnston are next on my to-read list.

Although, there are several book in my reading list I am sharing some books that I really want to read this year and mentioning why:

Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella: Because I love the wit and humour in her writing.

Remember Me by Mary Higgins Clark: I haven't read this author before but the theme and blurb of this book is really intriguing that I so want to read this!

Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini: Because I haven't read this author before and I've read some wonderful reviews plus this is a women centric story.

It Happens For a Reason by Preeti Shenoy: Because I really like her writing style, identifiable characters and situations. I have read all her books and really liked them!

Seahorse by Janice Pariat: Because she has a beautiful writing style! Liked her anthology Boats on Land.

Half a Rupee by Gulzar: I am totally fascinated by his poignant stories he wrote for his amazing films!

Kamala Das: Any book by this author as I love her writing style and her crisp balanced narration!

Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami: Because I haven't read him and want to and this book is a love story, my favourite genre!

Love Virtually and Every Seventh Wave by Daniel Glattauer: Because of nice reviews, my favourite genre and my favourite author Preeti Shenoy has praised these books in one of her posts!

Em and the Big Hoom by Jerry Pinto: Go see the reviews online. And Brunch (Weekly magazine of Hindustan times) suggested it and I found the theme intriguing.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: It's Goodreads Choice 2012 Winner. It's romance. The theme seems poignant.

Have you read any of these? How did you like them? Do you like any book so much that you want to share about? Please share your thoughts. Enjoy your New Year with some really good books!

I wish you all a rainbow of happiness, health and peace embellished with golden streaks of success! Happy New Year 2015!


  1. I'm reading Amish's third book :)
    Next would be Hangwoman or Playing it my way
    Do visit my blog once in a while as my resolution for the year 2015 is to update my blog regularly.

    Village Girl

    1. That's nice! Tell me how you liked them :)
      Will visit your blog soon. Thanks for visiting! :)

  2. Most of the books above are in my still-to-read list(it's kind of list which has no defined timeline due to lack of proper knowledge of work burden). :( currently I am stuck with The Book Thief.
    Though I have read Khaled Hosseini and let me tell, he is an ace. Means I adore him. His writing is the kind which will make you more aware of yourself. And I will add Gulzar sahab's into my list too.

    1. I understand. Even I don't get time to read much or even blog. It feels bad but what to do? :)

  3. Hey Tarang! I like your list, and although I have read only one from your list, I am sure of one thing, you are going to fall head over heels in love with A Thousand Splendid Suns :)

    1. Hello Srishty! Looking forward to it. Thanks for visiting! :)
