I haven’t read a whole lot of books by authors from my country, so I went a little overboard while drafting my TBR list for the readathon. I won’t even be at home and available over the duration of this readathon (48 hours), but I really, really hope I do finish all these books!
Book 1: One Part Woman by Perumal Murugan
1. Controversial book.
2. Translated from an Indian regional language.
3. He’s an author from my state.
4. Sahitya Akademi Award winner.
Book 2: Sultana’s Dream by Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain
1. It has an ethnic design in the cover.
2. It’s perfect for a rainy day (?)
Book 3: The Zoya Factor by Anuja Chauhan
This one was my friend’s favorite book growing up. It’s been heavily recommended to me, so I have my fingers crossed!
Prompt met: It has an Indian name in the title.
Book 4: Pyre by Perumal Murugan
I don’t know if I’ll have time to finish this book, but a girl can hope!
1. Translated from an Indian regional language.
2. The author is from my state.
And that’s all! I really hope I get to finish all 4 of these books!
