The last day for #foodandlit #India. Sharing some interesting breakfast from south India. 1. Masal Dosa: I m from a small coastal town of Karnataka state where they first tried this type of dosa ( using rice & lentil batter potato curry) The detailed recipe is mentioned in the tagged book. 2. Paddu: using the same dosa batter in a different type of pan. It is loaded with veggies, not spicy & kids fav. 3. Poori & alu gobi. 4.Idli, sambar & chutney.

An interesting book cos of multiple POV & diverse characters. I really enjoyed this one even though it doesn‘t feel like a thriller / detective one. Few details & events felt unnecessary but crafting of the story is brilliant. And I loved that name Saffron 🧡 one must read this for the writing style, crisp proses & vivid characters. 4.5⭐️ this was my Nov #bookspin #bookspinbingo

It‘s b/n pick & so-so. I like this cos of Strong female characters & story depicts the parallel medicinal approach of both Ayurveda & western medicine. But it could ve included other interesting historical events connected to the plot. There were few prejudices in d conversations which I didn‘t like. Good story but it felt less historical to me 3⭐️In d story MC is good at creating mandalas. This pic was taken in a temple last week. #foodandlit

This book reminded me of my fav quote by our late president Abdul Kalam sir, “if you want to shine like a sun, first burn like a sun”. It is brutally honest memoir. It tells the story of actual suffering & burning behind the glittering life of the Actress. motivating & inspiring. Of course, I enjoyed the #audio #memoir 4.5⭐️

Well I don‘t know what to say about this book. This is a difficult read, need a right frame of mind. About loss& hope. A time travel to vivid memory of pandemic as well as to the future( which is scary 😧 ) . Discrete chapters, compelling characters (esp like the first few ones). Although the ending is perfect I felt few chapters ended abruptly. Overall an unique read . 4⭐️#bookspinbingo

I haven‘t seen much of Shonda Rhimes‘ shows still I could enjoy this one. I could totally imagine the struggles of an introvert ! The best part of the book is author giving a speech in the presence of powerful women peers. strong & uplifting. Audio narration was too fast esp during her speeches,otherwise great narration. I can say it as Interesting & inspiring. 4.5⭐️ #nonfictionnovember #nonfiction2022 #bookspinbingo

I enjoyed reading this book along with fantastic #naturalitsy group. Though I was behind my reading schedule in the last few chapters I thoroughly enjoyed the group discussion. This book covers the years of academic research about forest fungal network. It includes both professional & personal journey of the author, with ups & down. It is sad to know about the discrimination faced by female researchers. Learned a lot about designing expts ⬇️

Blackink_WhitePaper I love reading about plant intelligence & plant communication. So I enjoyed reading this. Looking forward for more buddyreads from this group. Thanks for hosting @AllDebooks. P.S: my 2.5 year old daughter saw few coloured mushrooms in our backyard & excited. So I took her for a small walk. We both enjoy it. I silently prayed for all the mother trees & mothers 🙏💐 1mo

This is a perfect book to end #September as it is light hearted & fast read. My mom is a good gardener ( those pics are from my mom‘s garden) I love gardening so I enjoyed the tips of gardening mentioned in this book. This book is about heartbreak, love, friendship, motherhood & work life. Has spectrum of emotions. A good read. But I wish author could‘ve given little more emphasis to the other characters such as Edward. 4.5⭐️ #free #bookspinbingo

The snapshots from the life of Kim Jiyoung is so much relatable, that‘s why it‘s frustrating & heartbreaking read .

This book started off nicely about how to connect to nature & finding inner strength. But as it progress the focus shifted towards other issues. Overall the writing is good, but the connection from chapter to chapter was lacking. In this digital world this book ask us to slow down & listen to our surrounding for a bird song. It could ve focused on one aspect. 3.5🌟#nonfiction2022 #meditative #naturalitsy ( though less about nature 🤪)

I love fairy tales😻This is a perfect book to escape from real world & to get lost in fairy land. It is magical & charming. Good story line & strong female characters. Since the main character is a Jew, there is antisemitism aspects in the story. I like this aspect, & multiple POV. But it is lengthy compared with d story, could‘ve been shorter & crisp. Difficult to follow in audio cos of monotonous narration.
