I know I haven’t updated in forever. In my defence, I am doing two Masters qualifications concurrently and I have a two year old child. My job is also insanely busy. I’ve still been reading a ton but my blogging has slipped unfortunately. Apologies all.

My expectations were already pretty high for this book because contemporary South Asian diaspora stories are my jam, but if anything, this book managed to exceed them. I tend to read multiple books at once, but when I was reading this I basically did not leave my bed until I finished it.

This book is written in verse which is really cool and something a bit different.. I was a little apprehensive at first as this is not a writing style I engage with very often.
