My reading list of 2016.

My reading list of 2016. 

Finally, my books have arrived to the USA and that gives me the pleasurable opportunity to pile them and take a picture.
These are the books that I will use as the dumbbells to exercise my mental muscles in 2016.
The books that I plan to read but are not here because I don't have the physical copies of these books with me are-
1- The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
2- Rise of Hastinapura by Sharath Komarraju
3- Brutal by Uday Satapathy

Why is my own book IAm16 ICanRape: The War Against Rape Culture there in the list?
Other than plain narcissism, I have one better explanation.
One of the best ways to be objective about the Craft as a writer is to read the work again after some time. This time gap settles things down in head. Now, when I read the work, I learn a lot from it in terms of craft. Some good things, that I will continue to do in future in other books. Some not-good things, I can improve upon in my future works.
Debashish Irengbam, eager to meet Me, Mia and Multiple.
