I have Book News fellow bookworms, it’s end of the year and my reading list is pretty relax, just some festivie X–masy books 🎄🎅📔📖
So, it’s the perfect time to catch up and look forward to an upcoming release by a local I. E. Indian Author. Also, I find Indian fiction perfect for quick, entertaining reads with a local, desi flavor.
Today, I am talking about Amitabh Pandey’s upcoming release Love in Lutyens’ Delhi. Now, Lutyen’s is a residential area in the Indian capital Delhi, a pretty famous place. My favorite author has his childhood home here, of course that’s only one of the reasons I find it famous and really posh 😀

Akriti ‘Akku’ Patel and Sanjay ‘Sanju’ Saran become friends in
kindergarten, lovers in college, and then
hit the real world. With bureaucrats for parents, Sanju’s world is one of
power, privilege and entitlement.
Akku, on the other hand, is brought up by a single mother – a distinguished
surgeon widowed very young – and an aunt who is a smart and sassy books
editor with commitment problems.
Sanju’s mind is in turmoil as he chooses to abandon his dreams and, like
his parents, looks to the Civil Services for what he thinks will be a
meaningful career. Meanwhile, Akku, armed with a BTech from IIT, is jetting
off to California, land of systems design and fun-loving computer geniuses.
Can their love survive these growing differences? Or will the compulsions
of Lutyens’ Delhi stand in the way of their togetherness?
