Former actress and wife of actor Akshay Kumar, Twinkle Khanna is herself a good writer and loves to read. Her books, Mrs Funnybones, The Legend of Laxmi Prasad, and Pyjamas are Forgiving is extremely fond of reading good books and went to the extent of commenting that, “A fool walks around with his nose in the air while the wise keep theirs firmly buried in books. Happy reading!”
The five books that she loved to read in 2018 to the extent that carried them everywhere from the bathroom to loo, airports to hotels, here is the list of the book:
1. Less By Andrew Sean Greer
Less in her words was more. She could actually feel the narrative expanding within her ribs and filing up pockets of space that she was not aware was empty. Interesting plot of a writer who faces heartbreak.
2. If You See Me Don’t Say Hi By Neel Patel
It was a peculiar title that she picked up. So one fine day when she was tired and then started to read Patel’s debut short story collection a shot. She loved the stories and was unable to keep it down, the book has the kernel of loss at the main point but is full of wry humour that makes it groping.
3. Florida By Lauren Groff
The humid sunshine of the book and character Florida will submerge you. The book has sense of quiet desperation to which most of the ladies will connect.
4. Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata
The main character Keiko is unaware of the rules that govern the society. the only place where she fits in is Convenience store and here she starts to work. Even when you shut the book you are still engrossed in the words from the book, it is the most captivating book for the author.
5. Good Night stories for rebel Girls By Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo
The book was gifted to her daughter on her birthday. The book is about biographies for hundred extraordinary women who are inspiration for girls from all age group. The mother and daughter duo are reading the book in turns.
She also claims rather than reading fairy tales to your girls read this book and let her know that she can accomplish herself rather than waiting for prince charming.
