Hello everyone and welcome to the Literature section of my blog.

This category consists of reading materials which I have written reviews on, because after all, what better way to express our love for books than to write about them? But while other book reviews would spend a fair amount of time discussing characters, plots and scenes, the following book reviews, on the other hand, dive head on to my most basic encounter with the novel itself. Caveat: This is not a book review—in the usual sense of the word review.

It is more of telling a tale of one’s encounter with a book rather than providing trite explanations about the book. Under this subsection I have written my quick takes on literary books which I have read and reread. I might also add reviews on philosophy books from time to time.
