There are millions of books in the world, published day in, day out. It is hard to read every one of them in the limited lifespan that we have. But the pro of having so many books is that you never run out of books to read. There is always that one book that you have to read. It’s right there on your book list and you can’t wait to get your hands on it. Once you’re done with it, another one mysteriously emerges and thus, the cycle goes on and on.
Have you ever wondered how that window to the magical world appears and opens before you? From the eyes to the mind and then you are transported into an altogether virtual world, where you are the director, cameraman, creative director, art director and the music composer, all at once. You can smell the rain and feel the heat. You wince at a blow, smile at a cheesy line, laugh at a comic one, and cry at a tragic one. You shout and swear in consternation at the injustice meted out. And at the end of it all, you heave a sigh of satisfaction or of frustration, or you cry of sorrow. What could be the initiator of such happiness or such grief?

I had to skip August because I was basically a zombie walking around, so much happening around me that I wasn’t in my head at all. But I’m back now, and as way of return, here are 11 books releasing this month that have really piqued my interest.
I should probably call this article ‘April 2019 Book Releases That I’m Excited About but Probably Won’t Read Anytime Soon.’
When the press release for Shweta Bachchan-Nanda's latest book from Harper Collins came out, it was kind of a pleasant surprise for me. I've always admired the lady for the way she carries and conducts herself. So when the chance to do a cover reveal for her debut book came and landed in my lap, … Continue reading Cover Reveal: Paradise Towers by Shweta Bachchan-Nanda

The Woman in the Window, the latest thriller to be taking the reading world by storm, had my attention, too. Which is why I went ahead and bought it, to see for myself if it was worth the hype. This is A.J. Finn’s debut novel and I knew nothing about it before I dived into it. Except that it is a thriller, of course. 🙂
I had requested a copy of this book from NetGalley a long time ago and received it half-a-long-time ago. When I decided to read it, I didn’t remember what it was about Two Women that drew me in.

The Persepolis that I read is a sort of an omnibus that has both parts of the story. On the whole, Persepolis is the autobiographical account of the author from being an Iranian child, facing repercussions of her country’s turbulent history.
