I have a huge summer reading list ready at Goodreads and being a fantasy lover I am devouring the Plated Prisoner series by Raven Kennedy. The next book which I definitely want to finish is Snow by Orhan Pamuk which has been there in my bookshelf since the beginning of time. Adishree Ghosh

This summer (wearing a deer stalker hat?!) I will read The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Complete Adventures of Feluda: Volume II by Satyajit Ray and The Man from the Egg by Sudha Murthy. Saptarshi Saha


Amidst these powercut nights and sunny days, a friend recommended that I try A Good Girl’s Guide to the Murder by Holly Jackson. So, this summer I thought to try out this book which unfolds a lot of mystery in every chapter. I literally enjoyed this book a lot. I would say that this book is best for all the teens who really want to engage themselves in something productive. They are gonna enjoy it for sure. Mayukhi Dutta

This summer I planned on reading the type of books that I typically do not read. Some of these books are Colleen Hoover’s It Ends With Us and It Starts With Us, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, The Things We Leave Unfinished by Rebecca Yarros and The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Olina Kundu

The books on my reading list are The House of Secrets by Terry Lynn Thomas, It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover, and A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson. Jaya Bhabhra

Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia Marquez is what I started my summer vacation with. I have put a lot of books on my summer reading list but they (almost) do not include the typical romance books. I am currently reading this young adult tear jerker Five Feet Apart. This will be followed by The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, Emma by Jane Austen, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee and tranquil, innovative poems by Emily Dickinson. Debarpita Biswas

Books are our companions throughout our lives. Bengali novels, literature, fables, parables enhance the richness of our literature. Some books I chose to read are Narayan Debnath’s Nonte Phonte and Handa Bhonda Samagra, Sukumar Ray’s Abol Tabol, Bhibutibhusan Bandopadhyay’s Bhoy Somogro, and “I’m Home!” a Dog’s Neverending Love Story. Sanchari Banerjee

The books on my reading list this summer are The Last Queen by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni and In An Ideal World by Kunal Basu. I received both these books by those renowned authors recently as gifts. I have plans of completing reading those books written by two of my favourite writers this summer. Sourish Misra

A book I am reading this summer is the novel No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy. The novel has philosophical musings on the nature of violence and morality. McCarthy writes concisely, not really developing characters outside of observing their actions and dialogue, and intersperses conversations with lengthy philosophical monologues. Dyutiman Bhattacharya

This summer the books which areon my reading list are Byomkesh Samagra by Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay, Feluda Samagra by Satyajit Ray and The Complete Sherlock Homes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I love to read detective books and they inspire me to think through problems in my life and solve them. Priyanshi Das

Well, I actually have a pretty long list of books which I really want to complete reading, but, of course, it won’t be possible this year for me as I am in class 10. Some of the books which are a must-read for me in the summer vacation are The Midnight Library by Matt Haig, Sometimes ILie by Alice Feeney, Gerald’s Game by Stephen King and Never Never by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher. Rupkatha Das

I just finished When I’m with You by Durjoy Dutta. This summer I’m looking for romance books. They are the Twisted Tale series by Liz Braswell, Things We Never Got Over by Lucy Score and Wish I Could Tell You by Durjoy Dutta is on my reading list Indrakshi Chatterjee
