Perfect monsoon reading-list

Monsoon is our favourite of all seasons and what better on a rainy day than to skip work (not always!) and lounge around in your favourite corner with a great monsoon read. Over the years, there have been some books that will always remind me of rains. In this context, I do feel that some books have a specific smell – that particular smell of the first spell of rain, or the wet sand, or the smell of hot masala chai. It could be anything. Enlisted below are my favourite seven, that will always hold a special place maybe because of I had read them in this beautiful season.

  1. A Handful of Rice / The Silence of Desire by Kamala Markandaya
  2. Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri
  3. Tamarind Mem by Anita Rau Badami
  4. The Girls by Emma Cline
  5. The Calcutta Chromosome by Amitav Ghosh
  6. The God of Small things by Arundhati Roy
  7. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
