Hello, everyone! Reading has always been such an important part of my life. It made my childhood magical and again improved my life when I turned 40. Last year was a bit insane with the pandemic, and I read 55 books. Otherwise, I was reading 25 books a year on an average. So this year, to balance it out, I plan to read 12 books. I’m excited to participate in the TBR Challenge by Blogchatter.
My first book this year was Matthew Pollard’s “The Introvert’s Edge to Networking: Work the Room. Leverage Social Media. Develop Powerful Connections. I have reviewed it here.
I’m also excited to announce that I’m now a part of The Himalayan Book Club. My current read is the ARC of the Anatomy of Scars by Arjun Raj Gaind.
Here’s a short summary of the book – The book opens in the year 1984 when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated. A young boy Himmat visits his grandparents in Amritsar, and he experiences first-hand the troubles that afflict Punjab. In 2014, Himmat lives in London and is still haunted by the events of the past that he was witness to in his childhood. He is unable to form lasting relationships with people, and he is wracked with guilt, wrestling with alcoholism and substance abuse. When he returns to India due to his grandfather’s illness, he begins his journey of healing and deals with what Operation Blue star left behind. The book is based on real events and talks about the impact of the assassination of the former Prime Minister on Punjab and India today.
The book will be released on 26th January 2021. The Kindle edition is up for pre-order at INR 99 and it will be free on Kindle Unlimited.
