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

I seem to have read 152 book by the end of September so we're now on my final SIX of this year's #goodreadschallenge. Yes, I know some of you object to gamifying reading like that, just bloody READ, you say, which is also cool, if that floats your boat. Me, I like having a challenge I can not only win but get AHEAD of before deadline. It's silly, but it makes me feel like I've achieved something even if it's something that doesn't NEED achieving for me, reading is like brushing my teeth, I have to do it at least daily or I feel ridiculously uncomfortable. This book is great, one of the blurbs says "if Harry Potter grew up and joined the fuzz" which is all I'm going to say also. #bookstagram #mrmbookclub #nowreading #158in2018
