Hello Reader, welcome to my blog ShikhaReadster. My name is Banhi Shikha and I am a fervent lover of books. I started this blog on a whim in the summer of 2017. At the time, I really had no idea what I was doing. I just wanted to share my love for fictional world with fellow book lovers. Since then I had the privilege of ‘meeting’ many incredible readers and authors through this blog.
Little bit about me… Growing up in India in the 90’s meant books were my only salvation. As a kid I used to read regional literature more. My childhood was filled with books of Satyajit Ray, Rabindranath Tagore, Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay. Now I try to read across various genres. I love to talk about the books I am reading, I can talk about them all day long. So it was only a matter of time before I started a book blog.
I am a passionate reader. My favorite kind of books are those which make my heart skip a beat and force me to stay up till 4AM so that I can finish them in one sitting. While reading a story, I completely forget the world around me. I cannot tell you how many times I have missed my stop because of that.
Unlike many people I have no problem with spoilers (dunno why). Sometimes, after reading hundred something pages, I read the ending, then go back and continue with rest of the story. I know, I am weird.
Check out my review policy section to know more about my reading taste or how I select which books to review.
Thanks for your time and attention.
‘Read and Prosper’
