What I’ve Been Reading – Jun’21 Edition

Posted by

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.

Solo in Singapore by Tanushree Poddar

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.

I’m Old, I’m Wise and I Know My Sh*t by Bevinda Colaco

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!!

The Sane Psychopath by Salil Desai

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.

  1. Thanks for sharing the book Gargi and added Solo in Singapore to my TBR list. Just started Freedom at Midnight for India’s Independence and finished reading selected stories by DH Lawrence and autobiography of Khushwant Singh. I recommend both.
