March Theme and TBRs

Hello there Readers!

It's a new month, and it's time for us to reveal the theme and book in spotlight,

In case you're new, Fictional Fortress hosts monthly theme based read-a-longs and every month we choose a book in spotlight, usually an Indian author to promote the under-rated gem that Indian Literature is. At the end of the month, we host virtual book discussions for which you can sign up when the announcement is put up on our Instagram.

This March we're going to read books by Woman Writers in the view of Woman's Day on 8th.
Any genre, any number of books, as long as it's written by a woman, we'll allow it ;)






Book-In-Spotlight for March is The Lowland by the celebrated Indian-American author Jhumpa Lahiri. This book was short-listed for a number of awards including Man Booker prize in 2013.
If you've heard of this book and never found the chance to pick it up, now is the time. And if you haven't heard of this author/book, google people, google right now and add this book to your TBR!
