Every year I think I'll keep better track of the books I've read and every year I fail. This year I signed up for Goodreads 2016 reading challenge and put my goal down as 500 which is ridiculous and since then have modified it to a more reasonable 250. These are books 6&7 (the others were on my Kindle and didn't photograph.) was meant to finish Until The Lions which is the MAHABHARATA in POETRY you guys but got distracted by one of my World Book Fair picks and one of my favorite authors…

Last night caught the Noronha's brothers just before they closed watched loads of cars stop and ask for the way to "Anjuna" or "Baga." In the absence of a real mixer at the performance I was at before I drank Black Jewel with water and the world began to take on that personality too. This cat was my spirit animal. #goanway #catsagram

Any excuse to escape the city!  Finally on the road again this time to Bhopal which ok isn't the world's most exciting destination. But a weekend away is a weekend away  and I have notes on stuff to do while I'm there. Off we go! #traveldiary

Beautiful book in the Man In The High Castle genre. It's post WWII Germany in the 50s and the Nazis have won. We follow young Yael former concentration camp experiment as she attempts to get her revenge. Gripping. #nowreading #250in2016 #readingchallenge #bookstagram #mrmbookclub

A teacher friend brought me a copy of Split to sign for one of her students. The student sent me this little note. So lovely to see such a well handled copy a sign of a book being thumbed through several times. This is why I write. #splitthebook #theauthorlife

Midweek bookshop treat. The same cost as two glasses of wine which is also a great treat  but since I'm back on the nonsmoking wagon AND have an indulgent Bombay weekend coming up where it's likely I'll cheat a bit I just bought books ordered some chocolate off Grofers and am settling in. These are books I wasn't expecting to buy which are the nicest kind I find. #nowreading

Shitty ebook cover (so covered with an old ballet invitation) of this deliciously creepy classic which sort of sneaks up on you when you least expect it. I've always heard a lot about Shirley Jackson (a new biography out last year) but never got around to reading her. We Have Always Lived In The Castle is the story of a family who live in a village where everyone hates them. Told through the eyes of the winsome weird younger sister Merricat it starts out slowly building you up for one thing…
