Some Of The Lockdown Reads!

The Gaze by Elif Shafak

The Gaze was the first book that got me interested in Elif Shafak as an author. As the story idea is different – It’s about a couple who change their genders one day and go out for a meal only so that the society doesn’t judge them anymore.

And a Turkish Writer writing this story with Turkey as a backdrop. What more would you want in a story? The Gaze becomes my third read instead of first as this book was difficult to be found so I began with forty rules of love and then read The Bastard of Istanbul both of these are lovely too and the bestseller for the author.

Night Boat To Tangier by Kevin Barry

Night Boat To Tangier by Kevin Barry has been a book that on love, Drugs and Sex and this book particularly interested me was because not just the blurb of the book sounded interesting, But also because I had visited Morocco, Marrakech about one and half years ago and thought this would be a story that I could relate to after visiting the country. The book is good! But doesn’t really hold the story right till the end.

Blockchain by Stephen Williams

The Whole concept of blockchains was something that I wanted to know more about, Ever since it became the thing to watch out for in the next few years. And the interest became after watching a google talk of Alex Tapscott explaining the revolution of Blockchain. The Blockchain by Stephen Williams is a great read telling you about the blockchain like you are dummy. Simple & Easy to understand without using much of the technical Jargons.

Hygge by Meik Wiking

Hygge is a Danish way of living Like the Ikigai is finding the purpose in your life in Japan. a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of comfortable with feelings of wellness and contentment. Hygge is a lifestyle that’s very popular in Denmark and teaches you the importance of lighting in Danish culture. A must-read if you like books on cultures and loved “Ikigai”.
