This year of 2017 hasn’t been too much productive in terms of the time I spend on reading new books (the word ‘new’ is important here) or in the number of books I completed. I am writing this down in the month of August yet I am not so hopeful about the books I would be able to complete before 2017 draws its curtains down.

- Chronicle of a death foretold, Gabriel Marquez Garcia
- Ways of Seeing, John Berger
- The reluctant fundamentalist, Mohsin Hamid
- The association of small bombs, Karan Mahajan
- Summer Requiem, Vikram Seth
