If you haven't read this book yet, please do soon! It's an easy read and was very popular last year.
This is a story told by a 5 yr old who is trapped inside a room. It's interesting to see life narrated by a 5 yr old and has its own twists and turn.

Emma Donaghue, the author is an excellent writer and this is her first book that I read.

Cutting for stone, Abraham verghese

A story about twins born to an Indian nun and a famous british Surgeon set in Addis Abba, Ethiopia. There is a lot of medical jargon here, but i enjoyed it a lot. Ethiopia always brings picture of starving, hungry looking children to me. But this book shows the beautiful side of Ethiopia.
So folks, get these 2 books and enjoy!


  1. Priya, sounds like an interesting read - both of them - Actually, another friend and I were contemplating starting a book club - are you in one already? if not it would be nice to have you join too - let me know

  2. Sounds to be a nice book to read. Would look for it in my library this weekend.
