2012 Reading list

Reading is something that I have resumed after so many years in 2012. One of the best thing I have done in 2012. Thanks to all my blog friends who have inspired me with all your reviews. Yayyyy, so I have a list too 🙂

SnS, Smitha, Scribby, RM, Swaram – a beeg thanks to all you lovely ladies.

My primary source is the local library that’s 3.5 minutes away by walk from my home. Can it get any better? The library will top my “to be missed” list when I move out from this place. The people there are so friendly and the best part is even if the book is not available at their branch they help you to get the book from other branches.  If I need a place to spend few hours all alone then my feet will invariably turn towards this library.

I also refer this site for recommendations –

They have books categorized based on reviewer’s rating which makes it easier to choose. They are doing an amazing job.

Not to mention Adi is my tracker. We share bookmarks, we discuss about the book I read, she sets target for me, we challenge each other, when we read together at bedtime (I mean both sit next to each other and read our own books) she will share interesting snippets from her book that is followed by giggles and clueless M (the man who touches books only to pass it over).  I love these moments and I love that lamp next to my bed that glows during our bedtime reading every day night.
Without further ado here is my list from 2012.

1. Steve Jobs – by Walter Issacson

2. Parthiban Kanavu (Tamil) – by Kalki

3. The Palace of Illusions – by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

4. The most beautiful thing – by Fiona Robyn

5. How to Eat a Cupcake – by Meg Donohue

6. The White Tiger – by Aravind Adiga

7. The Twentieth Wife – by Indu Sundaresan

8. The Feast of Roses – by Indu Sundaresan

9. Shadow Princess – by Indu Sundaresan

10. In the Convent of Little flowers – by Indu Sundaresan

My nose is now buried into
