The Bones of Grace Book Review | Pink Chai LivingThe Bones of Grace is the third book in Tahimima Anam’s Bengal Trilogy. It was an unlikely book for me to choose off the bookshelf, but I had read an op-ed by Anam in the New York Times shortly after a tragic bombing in Dhaka Bangladesh last year. Her writing really struck a chord with me. She paints a picture that makes you feel like you are standing right in the scene she’s describing.

After reading the piece in the NY Times, I did a google search and found that Anam had recently published, The Bones of Grace. I read this book in the spring of last year and then realized it had been the end of a trilogy! So, I went back and read the first two books in the series, and then re-read this one!

In today’s video I’m walking you through my thoughts on all three books, but also introducing a new reading challenge. In 2018, I’m going to try to read 52 books by 52 South Asian authors. I read a lot, and 52 books in a year isn’t a great challenge, but putting a framework around my reading is new. My hope is that by the end of the year, I’ll have created a resource of sorts for anyone else looking for a South Asian read. To make the whole process easier I’ve started a bookshelf, where I’ll be sharing my thoughts & reviews. Slowly but surely, I’d also like to add some of the books I’ve already read and love.

Things you should know about me. I'd always 'rather be reading', cute shoes are my jam, and I've never met a carb I didn't want to try.

I'm also a bad-ass at launching brands, and my marketing campaigns have won international recognition. I also love writing and Instagramming (that's a word now right?)
