Hello, my fellow Spirals!
I have to say, March was a stellar month of a reading for me. The quality of my reading had gone down real bad in the start of the year with me rating everything I read between 2-3⭐. HOWEVER, this month have some solid 5⭐ reads!
So, let’s get into it!

Favorite Book of the Month
Hands down my favorite book of the month has to be The Help. I absolutely adored this book and had so much fun reading it. This book made me fall in love with reading all over again. Even though it’s a long book, never once did I feel like it was lengthy.
It was absolutely stunning and honest. I learnt so much. I saw so much. I truly appreciate that it’s one of those rare books about racism without being sad. Instead it’s hopeful and makes you believe that change starts from within ourselves.
To those who haven’t heard of this book, it’s basically about two black women who work as maids in white women’s families and a white female writer who wants to make a change. The story sheds light on how the maids (and the black community in general) are treated, the atrocities they face on a daily basis but also the good they have seen in the world.
Please please please give this book a shot!
Least Favorite Book of the Month
Without a doubt, it’s The Parted Earth. Being an Indian and having read and learnt so much about the Partition, I expected a lot from this book. However, it failed to deliver the bare minimum. To me it seemed shallow and overly predictable plotline with a forced romance. Wouldn’t suggest anyone to waste time on this.
