I have given up trying to read 51 books a year because firstly it is 2017,
I probably spend more time on my phone than with books (lame excuse I know)
but I still try to read and I do want to read more.
As for 2017, I could only read 16 books.
but I think there were some real good books this year.
My top three reads for 2017 were
The Great Derangement/ The Ministry of Utmost Happiness/ No Path in Darjeeling is Straight
The other books included:
Son of the Thundercloudby Eastern Kire The Artist of Disappearanceby Anita Desai The Great Derangementby Amitav Ghosh Thamel: Dark Star of Kathmanduby Rabi Thapa Bicycle Dreamingby Mridula Koshy Into the Hidden Valleyby Stuart Blackburn The Thing around your Neckby Chimammanda Ngozi Adichie The Book Thiefby Markus Zusak The Ministry of Utmost Happinessby Arundhati Roy Landour Days -a writer’s journalby Ruskin Bond The Diary of a Nobodyby George and Weedon Grossmith The Nine Chambered Heartby Janice Pariat The Museum of Innocenceby Orhan Pamuk There’s a Carnival Todayby I.B. Rai (Manjushree Thapa) No Path in Darjeeling is Straightby Parimal Bhattacharya Mad Countryby Samrat Upadhyaya
Regardless of how many books we read,
the point is to keep reading…
