The Sweet Torture of Anticipation: Scion of Ikshvaku by Amish Tripathi

Hey everyone!

I have a confession to make. I am obsessed with the Shiva Trilogy written by Amish Tripathi. If you haven’t read it, please do. It’s a beautiful take on Indian mythology. Amish Tripathi has written another series titled The Ram Chandra Series, the first book of which is to be launched on Monday, June 22. I will be attending the launch in Mumbai and hopefully will be posting about it (If I don’t get too engrossed in the book, that is).

Anyway, Amish is very good at a method of slow and pleasurable torture that involves revealing details about his books in such a way that the reader finds out many intricate details without figuring out anything of substance. While I wait for another two days, I have decided to compile a list of all the elements of Scion of Ikshvaku that I have been able to surmise from various sources and would like to share them with you all.

Say Hi! to Your New Friend

Hey everyone!

I have decided to include a friend, Pallavi to help me with the blog. Instead of going into a monologue about how great she is, I thought I’d let her introduce herself:

Hello, I’m Pallavi. I’m Jeannie’s friend and fellow-booklover. I’m one of those people who enjoys both popular YA fiction and actual, heavy literature. My bookshelves are the one place where you will find the Percy Jackson series right next to Atlas Shrugged. Or even Agatha Christie, alongside Nehru’s Glimpses of World History.

I have a proclivity for Indian authors. I also enjoy writing, reading and reviewing children’s literature.I classify as a ‘Fangirl’, as seen on social media.My taste in books is not confined to one genre.
Both Jeannie and I are united by our love for books, but we review different types.
I will most likely  be reviewing lighter books and easy reads, with a majority by Indian authors.
We both look forward to a long relationship with you all!
Happy Reading!
Jeannie and Pallavi
