Are you drooling yet?
Honestly this picture is enough to make my stomach growl but I’ll try to move on to the actual post…
So in celebration of the second edition of Indian Lit Readathon this July Shruti, Nandini and I are here with a new and delicious book tag called the Bookish Indian Sweets Tag! This is an extremely fun yet mouth watering tag for which you need to choose books based on the given prompts inspired by tasty Indian sweets. Most of the books I’ve chosen for this prompt are Indian with a couple of Asian books thrown in between. So without further ado, let’s get started!
- Link back to either one of the original creators’ post. (Nandini, Shruti, Charvi)
- Include the graphic featured in this post in your post
- Tag a few of your friends and have fun!
THE BOOKISH INDIAN SWEETS TAG
HOLIGE: An Underrated Book You Like To Recommend
Ghachar Ghochar was an incredible book that I read for last year’s Indian Lit Readathon and I don’t know who reccomended it to me but wow I can’t thank you enough! This was such a great book and a pretty easy read too with a lot of family dynamics.
JALEBI: A Book That Surpasses Your Expectations
Jasmine Days was the winner of the JCB Prize but I’m cautious when it comes to literary fiction books because I don’t always like them? But this one was really wonderful, albeit a little on the heavy side. The main girl’s journey as well as her thoughts were pretty interesting, she was right in the middle of two conflicting sides so we as readers could get a really good perspective.
RASGULLA: Your Bookish OTP
I can already hear Shruti squealing in the background because she and I are the biggest stans of Rahul and Prithvi from Beast. STRAIGHT UP ADORABLE! I would push Noor off the cliff for them (yes, there is a love triangle ahhhh).
The author also confirmed that Prithvi is bi even though it wasn’t stated in the book and the two of us went berseck!
GULAB JAMUN: A Book That Everyone Would Enjoy
Okay maybe I’m being biased but I don’t think anyone could not love There’s Something About Sweetie because it is the most adorable and body positive book I’ve ever read featuring strong women and cameos from When Dimple Met Rishi 🙂
Cutest rom-com book ever!
KALAKAND: A Book You Devoured In A Single Sitting
Wild Embers was my first poetry book my Nikita Gill, actually one of the first poetry books I had ever read. Nikita Gill did not disappoint! She has such a fluid and magical way of arranging words into sentences and rhyming and just leaving a huge impact on you.
PETHA: A Rare Book You Own
I don’t really have any rare books because I’m not a huge collector but my ARC of Darius The Great Is Not Okay is the only one that comes close to being rare. Somebody shipped this out to me as a bookish wish and I remember crying over it.
SOAN PAPDI: A Book You Wish Had A Sequel
I read Funny Boy this month itself and I’m already craving a sequel because this book absolutely stole my heart! Plus the ending was a bit sudden so I have too many burning questions about Arjie, I need him back!
KAJU KATLI: A Book You Think Is Worth The Hype
I can never stop emphasizing on how good Descendant of The Crane is! Seriously, the hype is freaking real, infact we need even more hype for this because this book will freaking blow your minds and make you gasp at unholy hours in the night. And also weep into tissues. Basically it will destroy you in the best way possible.
I’m so excited to see what everyone comes up with! I’m going to go ahead and tag
