Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen

I love Sarah Dessen’s books. As I have said before, her books have the ability to be refreshing, simple and light yet talk about issues that are not-so-simple either. It is easy to connect to her characters and there is no way you don’t feel for them. Auden is a perfect girl, she is studious – brings straight A’s – acts more mature for her age. She lives with her mother, who is a professor at a university. She tries hard to live upto the standard her mom wants. And

Mahasweta by Sudha Murthy

Sudha Murthy’s books are easy reads, available and are based on the real Indian women and their struggles. All or most of her books have heroines from Karnataka and the freshness and simplicity of her writing doesn’t let you give up on her books. And still I never really did pick up her books. Why? you may ask and I would say what can a techie, wife of the most celebrated and famous industrialist and founder of Infosys, could possibly write – I judged her books without reading it –
