The best thing about reading is – once you start you can’t stop! In the age of OTT streaming, it takes a while to get back into the swing of things, but you can get on a roll once you have done that.
Munmun Menon, a young woman, leaves behind her dismal life in India and heads for the island nation of Singapore, hoping to find career stability, her estranged father, and perhaps a chance at love. It’s all possible in Singapore! This was a light fun read that I finished in a couple of days. It brought to mind my days in Singapore and every time I read a few pages I was lost in my nostalgia.
A fun cover and an overall humorous vibe were all I needed to pick up this book, and boy, does the author deliver! I am barely into the first chapter and found myself nodding along as well as absorbing the life lessons she doles out every so often. Check this book out for sure – the author is indeed old and wise and knows her sh*t!!
I haven’t read any psychological thrillers in a while so I thought of stepping back into the fray with this one. The story is chilling – a bus driver goes on a rampage, killing and injuring people, damaging property and causing havoc for an hour until he is finally caught. The lawyer who has to defend him has a tough job, and he takes the help of a psychiatrist whose son died in the rampage. It promises to be a gripping read.
