On Books, Writing, Editing, and More

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

Hello, everyone! How’s your reading coming along?

A little while ago, I read ‘La Douler Exquise’ by Kavya U Janani. I’d bought this book in December 2020 and read it only recently. The book features poems about unexpressed and unrequited love and makes for a nice read. It’s available on Kindle Unlimited.

I read ‘moon letters’ – micropoetry by Dr. Saumya Goyal with artwork by Namita Jain. I loved some of the poems and all of the artwork.

 ‘Women Mutiny,’ is a collection of stories that were winners of the Muse of the month contest conducted by Womensweb. It is available on Kindle Unlimited. I enjoyed this collection a lot and I know it’s not fair to compare, but I liked this one better than another collection ‘No apologies’ that they’d brought out a couple of years back and I’d read in January 2020.

I read ‘Writing Flash Fiction: How to Write Very Short Stories and Get Them Published’ by Carly Berg. The book had some useful tips. I also read ‘Eating sugar, telling lies,’ a short story by Kuzhali Manickavel, which was compelling. I’d read and reviewed her ‘Insects are just like you and me except some of them have wings’ in 2010. Read my review of the book here.

On my TBR list are Kiran Manral’s ‘Kitty Party Murder’, Jenny Bhatt’s ‘Each of us killers,’ Ushasi Sen Basu’s ‘A killer among us.’ I also want to catch up with instalments 2 and 3 of the Mo Mystery series by Ushasi Sen Basu: The Cursed Stone: Readomania Singles (The Mo-Mysteries Book 2) and The Flatmate: Readomania Singles (The Mo-Mysteries Book 3). I know! I know! I seem to be on a murder mystery rampage 😀

I’d set a goal to read only 12 books this year, but seeing that it’s only mid-March and I’ve already exceeded my target, I guess I’m going to be reading a lot more. It’s always better to under-promise and over deliver?

Do let me know in the comments section if you’ve read any of the books on my TBR. It would be great if you could share your reviews, too!
