Amidst catching up with friends and working on the resolutions (who am I kidding?), if you’re looking forward to showing off your personal library, we’ve got a few brilliant suggestions for you.

Reading between the lines (read: posts) of writer Twinkle Khanna’s Instagram page, we’ve formed a list of books she highly recommended in 2017. Have a look and see which ones you haven’t picked up yet!

Saturday recommendation – Hot Milk by Deborah Levy -shortlisted for the Booker.A deceptively simple story that deals with guilt, love and obligation – layers that go deeper and deeper till you are submerged in Levy’s surreal world and stung by its myriad jellyfish. #bookwormheaven

My Brilliant Friend is brilliant indeed. This book does not do any of the complicated zigzags of successful storytelling but is an arrow that flies parallel to the ground and hits at the heart of all human emotion. #mustread

Done with Hitman Anders but as much as I loved The Hundred Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared- this one though humorous enough was a bit of a disappointment. #bookwormproblems #ABookADayKeepsIdiotsAtBay
