I am about to finish The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini and can't wait to jump on to next. I am thinking of trying one by an Indian author. Just like we have food cravings, I have these crazy which-book-to-read-next cravings and I'm sure if you are a #booknerd too, you might be having similar cravings.
I was scanning Amazon yesterday and came across a book that's on pre-order basis for now. It would be available on July 15. I found the name compelling––Scent of an Undiscovered Writer. It's by a young author named Abhishek Mohta. He goes by the pen name Callre and I found the pen name quite interesting.
The book is about a person who's facing lot of adversities in life and then as time passes, discovers the meaning of life. I love reading this type of books because I am in a phase where I need such kind of motivation. Another one I'd read and loved was The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho; it had a similar discovery.
You can pre-order the book if you can't wait. It would be available on the 15th and I'm gonna immediately place an order. This is the author's debut English novel; he has already written one in Spanish before. I wish I could read (and understand Spanish) so that I could have gotten a taste of his writings before this one launched.
I'm really looking forward to reading his book. Until it launches, I would have finished reading The Kite Runner, so the timing is perfect. For now it is available on pre-order basis for Rs. 196 on Amazon and would shortly be available in bookstores as well. Depending on when I finish reading the current book, I'll order the Scent of an Undiscovered Writer.
Do read this book and let me know if you loved it.
Which book are you currently reading? And which one is next on the list?
