Wondering what to read next? Your search ends here!

Welcome to the Reader’s Nook, your place for all things book related. Get book recommendations and mini book reviews delivered straight to your inbox twice a month!

You should probably know that I read almost anything and everything: fiction, non-fiction, the eagerly anticipated and the lesser known, the new, the old, and the oversaturated.

I’ll also include a round-up of things I’m watching and loving, a poem that I particularly loved, and some quotes from the books I’ve read during the month.

You can expect to hear from me twice a month.

From time to time, I will also surprise you with a bookish deep dive on a book that captured my attention. Think quotes, curated author interviews, articles, and reviews from around the internet.

A little bit about me

Hi there! I’m Shinjini, and I’m a bookworm.

My love affair with books started at a rather tender age. Since then, I haven’t been able to step into a bookstore without walking out with at least one book!

My friends always want to know what I’m reading and constantly ask me for recommendations. When one of them suggested I host a reading challenge, I jumped at the idea. I like nothing better than fostering the reading habit, encouraging people to read widely, and eschewing bookish snobbery. {Though I do draw the line at Indian author Chetan Bhagat and his ilk. Sorry, not sorry!}

That’s where the Book Bingo reading challenge was born.
