Although a lot of good things happened in 2015 but the list of books I missed is unfortunately as long as what I actually read. These are the books that made it to my shelf but fell short of being read. I really enjoyed reading the Shiva trilogy by Amish Tripathi. A different take on Indian mythology put forth in a spell binding and interesting tale of fantasy and action with gods in the lead role.
Another such intriguing story was penned in Krishna Keys. It was more like Da Vinci Code with Indian characters and Lord Krishna in place of Jesus. It was a nice one-time read but not as good as the Shiva Trilogy.
As much as I would have loved reading them but the following books could not make it out of the shelf.
- India’s Struggle for Independence by Bipan Chandra
- My Gita by Devdutt Pattnaik
- The city of djinns by William Dalrymple
Let’s hope these books can see some fresh air in 2016.
For all the book lovers I would like to add that the World Book Fair is going on at the Pragati Maidan in Delhi from 9th to 17th January. Feel free to dive into the immense world of books and literature. Read On...
