October is the time of year when the world goes into Halloween mode and I go into a state of complete panic because I haven’t read the books that I planned to read across the year. And this year, 2020, is no different, even though 2020 has been such a huge dumpster fire of a year that I can’t even begin to explain why I hate this year so much! But books are evergreen and at least reading-wise, a lot of good has happened, so let’s focus on that and make plans accordingly.
What do you do when you meet someone who puts your thoughts in their words in a way that you think they know how to read minds from afar? When they are so level-headed and fearless as they talk about issues that it makes you fall in awe of them?
Krutika Puranik, fellow reader, Bookstagrammer, and friend, is one such person.
