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!

1. Controversial book.

2. Translated from an Indian regional language.

3. He’s an author from my state.

Book 2: Sultana’s Dream by Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain

Prompts met:

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

The Zoya FactorThis one was my friend’s favorite book growing up. It’s been heavily recommended to me, so I have my fingers crossed!

  2. So how did you fare in the readathon? I couldn’t participate cause I had to leave town, but I did read Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows the week before the readathon, and I loved it 🙂 so at least I sort of participated xD (loved the book, BTW)

    1. Erotic Stories… has been on my TBR for a while now! I only finished 2 of these 4 books. xD I stepped out for lunch on both days and hosted Twitter sprints, so I didn’t have time to finish my TBR. *sighs*
