Books

My parents introduced the habit of reading to my sister and I when we were really young. Growing up in Oman, going to the bookstore became an exciting weekend trip! Over the years, my interests have changed, but thankfully, the love for books never went away.  

Listed below are my favorite books. I will continue to update this as and when I read a new book, so look back every few weeks! For immediate updates and reviews, head to my Goodreads profile: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/30632314-sampada-deshpande
