Top 7 Indian Bookstagram Accounts To Follow If You’re A Bibliophile
1. Spoonful Of Pages
Aamna recommends Gold Diggers by Sanjena Sathian and the title plus the cover design is reason enough to convince me that this is going to be my next read. Marriages in the South Asian diaspora are a SAGA and this book discusses the good, the bad and the ugly.
2. Pretty Little Bibliophile
Nayanika coming through with her desi dark academia fantasy recommendation titled Sisters of The Snake. If the newfound family trope and forbidden romances rock your boat, this is the one.
3. Books & Teaa
Shumaila’s pick for you is Daughters Of Partition by Fozia Raja. This tale does a fantastic job of unearthing the gruesome terrors of the partition and preserves oral history via a medium that has now been immortalised.
4. Reader Viddh
Vidhya Thakkar wants you to read: What We Pass On To Our Daughters. It explores family dynamics and a mother-daughter relationship and questions generational practices that often get swept under the rug. On my way to buy a copy.
5. Chai Books & The Moon
Shiva Shanti, the force behind this account recommends Rising Like A Storm by Tanaz Bhathena. It’s an Indian fantasy novel inspired by our mythological history and is a second and final installment in The Wrath Of Ambar.
6. Read A Day Club
The account is jointly run by Amreen Dhurue & Ayesha Dhurue along with a Youtube channel that discusses the books in great depth. Here, they’re recommending a collection of short stories by Satyajit Ray which is best devoured alongside a cup of chai or coffee!
7. Nupur Flip A Leaf
Nupur recommends Jhumpa Lahiri, need I say anything more? This book emphasises on the love affair between the author and a language foreign to her, i.e., Italian and the obsession that follows- great plotline to get anyone hooked!
