My latest book is The One Who Swam With The Fishes.

"A mesmerizing account of the well-known story of Matsyagandha ... and her transformation from fisherman’s daughter to Satyavati, Santanu’s royal consort and the Mother/Progenitor of the Kuru clan." - Hindustan Times

"Themes of fate, morality and power overlay a subtle and essential feminism to make this lyrical book a must-read. If this is Madhavan’s first book in the Girls from the Mahabharata series, there is much to look forward to in the months to come." - Open Magazine

"A gleeful dollop of Blytonian magic ... Reddy Madhavan is also able to tackle some fairly sensitive subjects such as identity, the love of and karmic ties with parents, adoption, the first sexual encounter, loneliness, and my favourite, feminist rage." - Scroll

Today in Photo


Every year I think I'll keep better track of the books I've read and every year I fail. This year I signed up for Goodreads 2016 reading challenge and put my goal down as 500 which is ridiculous and since then have modified it to a more reasonable 250. These are books 6&7 (the others were on my Kindle and didn't photograph.) was meant to finish Until The Lions which is the MAHABHARATA in POETRY you guys but got distracted by one of my World Book Fair picks, and one of my favorite authors. Maggie brilliant as always in this story of childhood and mean girls. However Karthika Nair is our book club pick for this month so speed reading! #bookstagram #250in2016 #readingchallenge
