I’m a South Asian book blogger obsessed with Young Adult literature, but I read across the spectrum. I’m especially interested in stories that highlight BIPOC and QPOC voices.
I love the fun romcoms, the serious issue books, the SFF mirroring real world politics, the ghost stories, the thrillers that dig beneath the surface, the quiet magic realism.
This isn’t a comprehensive list in any way, but some of the YA authors I admire are: Courtney Summers, Jason Reynolds, Elizabeth Acevedo, Angie Thomas, Tiffany Jackson, Jandy Nelson, Jaclyn Moriarty, Becky Albertalli, Juno Dawson, Nova Ren Suma.
Other faves: Sylvia Plath, Emily Bronte, Sally Rooney, Emma Jane Unsworth, Anuja Chauhan, Jhumpa Lahiri, Mohsin Hamid, Meena Kandasamy.
If I’m not reading, I’m planning my next beach vacation, getting my manuscript query-ready, staying awake on endless cups of caffeine or you know, the usual, buying more books than I have shelf space for.
I’m currently based in India.
