HUMOUR

THE BOOKISH LIFE OF NINA HILL – Pooja Natesh highly recommends it. In her words:

“This was a delight from start to finish. I could connect with Nina and her love for books, reading and cats. Nina is a bookworm who manages her life down to the second. She is an active participant in her trivia club, leads several books clubs, goes to movies and has various other interests but always makes time for reading! She drinks wine, is anxious and shares a unique relationship with her globetrotting mother. But one day the world turns upside down when she gets to know that her father – who she never knew – is dead now! She gets to know that she is not a single child anymore but has a huge family. What would she do now?

A fun, light, quirky, engaging and delightful book. I just loved Nina and the way the book was written describing her and her life. An apt book to stay cooped up in your favourite spot at home with a mug of hot chocolate.”
