Book Haul/// Books of May 2017.


May is over and I've accumulated a few good books this month. 
I've bought 7 books out of 9.
One was sent to me for review.
The other was a gift my sister received. 

Let's see what books I've added to my bookshelves this month. 

Books Bought: 

Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 
So You've Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson 
Magic Seeds by V.S. Naipaul 
The Tree Bride by Bharati Mukherjee 
3 And a Half Murders by Salil Desai 
Boyhood by Bhisham Sahni 
The House with Five Courtyards by Govind Mishra 
The Liberation of Sita by Volga 
We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie 

The only thing written by the author that I haven't yet read. 
This should be a quick and enlightening read. 

This book kept popping up everywhere and I've heard good things about it. 
This book is quite slim too and should be a quick read. 

More translated fiction for me! 
This novel was originally written in Hindi. 

Added to my Modern Classics bookshelf. 
I have been meaning to read some Bhisham Sahni for absolute ages. 

I got this specially for my sister whose already read and reviewed it. 
Just look below this post for the review. 

God I hate the cover of this book! 
I have half a mind to cover it up! 
But Bharati Mukherjee is another write I've even meaning to sample. She has quite a few books that sound rather interesting. 

Where do I begin. 
I had no intention of ever reading a V.S. Naipaul book. 
Why you might ask? 
Well, this man is a bit of a dick!
He has said a whole lot of shit about women writers, claiming that no woman writer is his literary match! 
I will never give any of my money towards this sexist pig. 
This book was a gift and hence it's here. 
 I thought I'd share what book I put in my library.
Honestly, I don't know if I'll ever read it's here for now. 

A non-fiction title, one I've heard only good things about and I got this book for super duper cheap.
I paid Rs. 140 instead of Rs. 599! 
What a deal! 

The kind folks at Penguin sent me this darling little book full of kickass woman! 
I loved it so much! 
A full review will come soon! 

I can't wait to read these books! 
Lots of happy reading in my near future!
