You all know that I have started reading all over again.. I mean books, novels, short stories and all I that I used to do a few years back. Being a mom kept me busy until the little one grew up and learnt how to keep herself busy without disturbing mom any more ! So I got my little time back to slouch in the sofa and read a book or just over a cup of coffee in the evenings. Hubby gifted me a book and you would have already read all that sweet story here and now.. guess what he did?
He got all the books written by the same author, Preeti Shenoy !!!
I finished the book he got for me 'The Secret Wishlist' in 5 days and he thought I was really quick. [If it was back then I would have finished it in a day or two !!] So he asked me whether I liked the book and I went praising the author Preeti Shenoy non-stop for the next few days. I liked her simple yet stylish language and since the story revolved around Banglore and Chennai I felt as if I am reading the real-life story of a friend of a friend !!!
Hubby was proud [coz he introduced the author and the book to me :p] and happy that I totally enjoyed his gift. He decided to surprise me more and make me happy by ordering all the books by the author Preeti Shenoy. I heard him mumble - 'Thank God, she just wrote 5 books till now ;)'
He ordered all the other four books from amazon and you won't believe the total came up to just Rs.322 !! Here are the books by the author in the order they were published
1.34 Bubblegums and Candies
2.Life is What You Make It
3.Tea for Two and a Piece of Cake
4.The Secret Wish List
5.The One You Cannot Have
Such a sweet gesture.... He said he feels more happy when he gets me books than make up :/ What !!!???
By the way, I just loved the book - The Secret Wish List and I have already started reading 34 Bubblegums and Candies :D So I am sharing my little library here [will show the entire collection some day] and you can see posts related to books [not reviews] now and then :)
