Summer is the time to head to the nearest beach or hill station.
Summer is the time to sit back and relax.
Summer is the time to unwind with your favourite book.
This is my summer reading list for this year. A mix of a little vacation vibe, a little nostalgia, and a whole lot of interesting read.
1. The Inn at Lake Devine
By Elinor Lipman
Just the name of the book invited me to grab it and get transported to the summer of 1962.
2. Go set a watchman
By Harper Lee
Sequel to one of the best books I have read till date ‘ To Kill a Mockingbird Bird ‘. I can’t wait to get
my hands on this one.
3. Tourist Season
By Carl Hiaasen
Tourist season..it is about long needed vacations for us. But how is it like for people who make
most their earnings during this time – the people who migrate to tourist spots during summers to
make their annual earnings. This book got me thinking about all these things.
4. The shell
By Rosamunde Pilcher
I have had a knack of collecting shells ever since childhood. This one piqued my curiosity.. Is it
about fake pearl trade or how the shells come into being or the creatures that inhabit these
5. Unaccustomed Earth
By Jhumpa Lahiri
Ever since I read the namesake, I have become a big fan of all things ‘ Jhumpa Lahiri ‘.
By Rudyard Kipling
Kipling wrote this novel at the picturesque Bundi Fort in Rajasthan. That’s reason enough to read
On second thoughts, Kipling happens to be one of my favourite writers and I have been wanting to
read this one for a long, long time.
7. The Trains Now Deserted
By Micheal William.
I visited Europe as a kid and the cover transported me back to the the lush British landscape, the unforgettable train journeys, the old world charm.
8. School Days
This one is make making me nostalgic even as I write this down. Who wouldn’t grab a chance to
re-live long forgotten school days again…the golden days of our life that shaped our life.
9. Sapiens : A brief history of mankind
By Noah Yuval Horan
Being a hard core anthropology fan, I never miss the chance to learn more about the human race.
10. The Body Chamber
By Angela Carter
Ghost stories make vacations all the more enjoyable by adding a bit of thrill and a tinge of nostalgia. Perfect for those long flight or train journeys.
