Six latest books by Indian authors you must read ASAP (...I loved them)

#ToTheMoon How I Blogged My Way To Bollywood
Author: Malini Agarwal
Genre: Non-fiction (autobiography)
Published on: 7 January 2018
This is everything you need to read if you’ve been a Miss Malini fan. I’ve been looking forward to the book ever since it was announced and finished it within days of receiving my copy. It’s everything a young entertainment media professional would need to read at the beginning of my career.

The Perils of Being Moderately Famous
Author: Soha Ali Khan
Genre: Non-fiction (autobiography)
Published on: 12 December 2017
I finished reading this engaging book in one sitting. Kunal Kemmu used to be my teenage crush while in school. Remember his look in Kalyug? And the synopsis looked pretty enticing. A glimpse into the family that’s contributed so much to Bollywood.

Dangerous Minds
Authors: Hussain Zaidi and Brijesh Singh
Genre: Non-fiction (crime thriller)
Published on: 20 June 2017
This read was everything I’d hoped and wished it was. I totally love the author – Hussain Zaidi and have pretty much read all his books. He’s a crime journalist turned author and makes books on his experience covering hardcore crime over the decades, which includes narrating life stories of some of the most notorious gangsters India has known, and the lesser known ones too!

Seventy… And Too Hell With It
Author: Shobhaa De
Genre: Non-fiction (memoir)
Published on: 13 December 2017
Shobhaa De, in a voice that’s confident and candid recounts her relationships in the past seventy years of life as a celebrity journalist and author. Like every other book of hers, this is a well written memoir and makes a delightful read for those who love her writing.

The Kiss of Life
Author: Emraan Hashmi and Bilal Siddiqui
Genre: Non-fiction
Published on: 5 April 2016
This book, provides an insight into the life of the actor, right from the time he was a child artiste, to a lead actor to the time he shot to fame to the time his career slowed down. Everything from his relationships to his acting career becomes a part of this book, though the major chunk of it is of course, how he and his son brave the deadly cancer and bounce back.

The Boy With A Broken Heart
Author: Durjoy Datta
Genre: Romance/thriller
Published on: 15 November 2017

This is a sequel to Durjoy’s The Boy Who Loved which released earlier this year and is a gripping and enchanting tale with the desired suspense and drama as the story advances. Though I loved the chick-lits he wrote while I was younger, I love how his books have changed over the years and his writing skills have just advanced to cater to a different audience. You must read this one, also because his author pic is cute! :p
