Main Physical TBR
When Dimple Meet Rishi by Sandhya Menon
Opinion: I totally loved this book. Dimple is such a feminist and I loved it. I do not find her mean at all.
The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley
Pages: 368 pages
Opinion: I felt this book was kind of a waste of my time. It’s meant to be a gothic horror, but I felt this was more of a standard fiction book with a very open ending and very heavy on religion. I wasnt a fan.
I Can’t Make This Up: Life Lessons by Kevin Hart
Pages: 400pages, Audiobook: 11h 15min
Opinion: I very much enjoyed this listen as Kevin Hart narrates it himself.
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
Pages: 341 pages
Opinion: I truly enjoyed this read and the format of the story. I didn’t know much about the Iranian revolution and this book gave me an insight into why, where and how and how people reacted to it. It was very good 😁
One Day in December by Josie Silver
Pages: 432 pages
Opinion: A cute chick lit with a different format and realistic characters. I did a full review here.
Let Her Fly by Ziauddin Yousafzi with
Pages: 240 pages
Opinion: This was a strong, emotional short story about a father’s journey of becoming a feminist in a male-dominated country.
And if you think you recognise the girl on the cover, you are right. That’s Malala. And this book is written by her father 😁
A total of 2161 pages…!!!
It does include the audiobook which is 400p, but still, 1700 pages is a lot in 7 days.
I’m lost for words.
