7 Most Recent Additions to My Bookshelf – May 2020

 ¡Hola amigos! I hope you are keeping well and safe amidst these uncertain times. It has been a while since I bought books as my TBR pile list keeps glaring at me. Nevertheless, I bought two new eBooks yesterday and a few that I had before getting locked down. Keep reading to find my collection of books that I am super excited to read next!

1) Vicious by V.E.Schwab

Print Length: 366 pages
Format: eBook
Publisher: Titan Books

I am probably quite late in entering the V.E Schwab fandom, but this will be my first book of the author that I will be reading. After tons of rave reviews on twitter and goodreads recommendations, I look forward to be entertained.

2) Baking a Dream: The Theobroma Story by Kainaz Messman Harchandrai

Print Length: 233 pages
Format: eBook
Publisher: HarperCollins India

A book I chanced upon while browsing on Amazon. As usual, I read the sample pages and found it a delight. This is a true story of a small startup by a family in confectionery and baked goodies based in Delhi. I hope to visit Theorbroma cafe some day and taste their incredible desserts. *fingers crossed*

3) Let’s Go Adventuring: 25 Exciting Trips Around India by Supriya Sehgal

Print Length: 176 pages
Format: Paperback
Publisher: Hachette India Children’s Books

With lockdown and self-isolation in action, this book looks like an interesting read to curb my travel pangs for a while.

4) Temple Tales: Secrets and Stories From India’s Sacred Places by Sudha G. Tilak

Print Length: 171 pages
Format: Paperback
Publisher: Hachette India Children’s Books

Personally, I am attracted to this book since it displays Lord Jagannath (holy deity commonly prayed in my state) on the cover page. Plus, it is good to know mythologies and stories that are culturally passed on from generations to generations.

7) I’d Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life by Anne Bogel

Print Length: 161 pages

As a self-confessed bibliophile, this eBook attracted me with its summary. It popped up in my Amazon recommendation and voila! It is about reading and readers. I hope this book will be a relatable and a humorous read.
