What a nice book trailer made by Westland books! This trailer is for Ashwin Sanghi’s next book – The Sialkot Saga. I liked Ashwin Sanghi’s previous book – The Krishna Key, but didn’t form such a good impression about the book he co-authored after that with James Patterson.
I am glad to say that my short story, ‘The Singers’ has been included in the WRIMO India Anthology – ‘VENGEANCE: A Sting in every Tale’.

Ponniyin Selvan #1: Fresh Floods is the English translation of the first part of the popular and bestselling historical fiction classic novel in Tamil. The book, set in 11th Century Tamil Nadu, was written by Kalki in the 40s/50s, has been translated into English by Pavithra Srinivasan, and is published by Westland Ltd. Book review in one word: Wow! 🙂
The Gang of Wonder Kids by Shetall Ramsinghani is a sweet book for pre-teens and early-teens that is filled with adventures while helping kids to learn valuable life lessons.

If you are tired of preaching life lessons, and kids don’t listen to you, you might as well try asking them to read this book!
My Man Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse is the first second full-length humorous book I read recently. Just before reading this, I tried to read ‘Three Men in a Boat’. Although that book was funny (until where ever I dropped it), it tested my patience without a story, or a story that moved tooooooo slow. So I dropped it mid-way. But this book, at least in comparison, is a GEM. It’s more like a collection of short stories 🙂
Touch of Mist is the first book written by Deepika Muthusamy. It’s about love, marriage, separation, and reunion(?). Frankly, I have not read many relationship-based books, and I was glad to read this one: it was like cool breeze in a perpetually hot Chennai!
