After ages I have slid back into my writing and reading groove. You can say that I have buried myself into it. When I am immersed in writing my story or absorbed in reading a book, I tend to think less of other things. During those times, it’s just me and the stories and the characters, both in the books I am writing and the books I am reading.
To get my mind away from my loss, I read two books back to back: The House that BJ Built by Anuja Chauhan was simply hilarious. As I had read her earlier book: Those Pricey Thakur Girls, it was nice to meet the same characters and see what has happened to them 20 years later. Anuja is getting better and better. My Indian Blog buddies will completely adore the story (the liberal sprinkling of Hindi words will not be a dampener for them). The second book I read was Johnny Gone Down by Karan Bajaj. I loved the book with the strong spiritual message and the varied characters. I was completely intrigued by the main character Nikhil. I am eager to read Karan’s earlier book, as well as his latest one.
I also wrote two picture books and their query letters and revised all four.
I am currently reading Cavemice – The Great Mouse Race – a Geronimo Stilton book. I adore the humor of these books. No wonder the kids all over the world freak out over them.
