Review of A Hundred Little Flames by Preeti Shenoy

Hi there,

I have been doing a Facebook and Instagram live for the past 3 days. Each day we discuss an emotion/concept related to the book.  (5 days, 5 emotions, 1 book. #AHundredLittleFlames)

Today is day 4, and we will be talking about Friendship. For those of you who want to join in, tune into Instagram or Facebook at 12.00 noon and join me!

Meanwhile I am DELIGHTED as I got my very first official review of A Hundred Little Flames.

I am embdedding the review here, so you can see it  for yourself.

The first review of my new book!! Thank you @adi_bibliophile91 !! Get the book (Link in bio). You can get a signed copy for only four more days. So hurry!! #Repost @adi_bibliophile91 (@get_repost) ・・・ Just like Ayan, the central protagonist of the #book #ahundredlittleflames by #preetishenoy I too learnt a lot about life, kindness, friendships, families and responsibilities from his humble, amiable, understanding and responsible grandfather, Gopal Shankar. A young man who has forever danced to the tunes of his father, has finally found himself, found the path he wants to walk on as well as found courage to stand up against his mean father, after living at his ancestral home with his grandfather, who too have forever been wrongly understood by his deceased wife and his children, even though he did all his duties towards them happily. Indian bestselling author, Preeti Shenoy, has aptly captured the essence of the pure relationship between a grandfather and his grandson through this often heart breaking yet a soul touching story about friendships, sacrifices, responsibilities towards own family and how children neglect their aging parents. She has also portrayed the family issues very honestly and vividly that it is bound to strike with the readers. Strongly recommended.

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupéry

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…

This is how I welcome the new year

Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around.
I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together.
We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second.

We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.
And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude.


With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts!
Leave me comments. I love to hear from you.

 Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
