Summer recommendations

20 something 20 everything
Christine Hassler has created a guide for women (teens and young adults) understanding the different components of twenty something crisis based on ‘twenties triangle’, ‘building a secure foundation’ and ‘relationship and career’ during our quarter-life. It’s a self-assessment book comprising of around 65 exercises, practically written to help us explore ourselves: our identities, dreams and values.
This book helped me introspect as well as gave me a broader perspective to life. This is a must read for self-assessment, especially if you think your life is not at par with your expectations.

Karnali Blues
karnali-bluesBuddhi Sagar’s Karnali Blues shows the struggle of a father to raise a family who has to migrate to various places for a living. From the author’s point of view when he was small, he used to think his father was a super hero but with time, his views change. This book inculcated a thankful attitude in me and exposed me to the rural lifestyle.
