Sunday Musings #56: Meeting Indian Bloggers

I am on vacation in India still, and I kinda extended it by ten days. So I thought I will give you an update on how things are working out currently. I have been shuttling between cities, just as I expected and it is not as bad as I have been whining about. 

But hey the good news is I am avoiding returning to Dubai’s heat for another ten days and spending time meeting family, friends and even catching up with some bloggers in real life. The only downfall seems to be my inconsistent blogging schedule and I have been feeling terribly guilty about it. Do you have those bloggers’ remorse?

What I read this week

On the other hand my reading has been going great and I have been on track mostly. I read two books in the last week.

  • The joy luck club
  • Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe

On my blog

As I mentioned already, I haven’t blogged in a while. It is not that I don’t have time to write up one but it is just not the same when you are on a holiday. 

I am lost without a routine and probably that’s what holidays are about! Anyway here is the single post I published in the past three weeks.

The Seven Deaths Of Evelyn Hardcastle – A Book Review

I will be linking today’s post with Caffeinated reviewer’s Sunday post Meme

Around the blogosphere

Since I haven’t had blog hopped and don’t even know what’s happening in the blogosphere, I am gonna talk about whom I met in last few weeks! 

I met Shruti from This ls Lit and Mathangi from The Word Glutton in Chennai two weeks ago! And you will not believe this is the first time we are hanging out outside of a book event. 

Meeting bloggers

We ended up spending more than five hours talking about nothing and everything. Who am I kidding? We were talking about books, feminism and representation of brown people in books! 

And we clicked a lot of fun pictures. 

Tanvi from A reader to whatever end visited the town when I was around and Nandini from Unputdownable books and I caught up with her.

Meeting bloggers

Again a coffee date extended to a five hour giggle fest! Wait who said we bookworms are the quiet ones?

I am totally looking forward to meeting some more Bookstagrammers and bloggers this week! Fingers crossed!! 

Pin me!

  1. What a fun time you had meeting up with other bloggers! I’ve done that a few times and it has been marvelous.

    You’ve read a couple of great books while you were on holiday. No worries about not posting…it’s all good.

    Have a fabulous vacation!

  2. It’s wonderful to hear you are enjoying your vacation. That’s awesome that you got to meet up with so many bloggers. What fun! I struggle with doing all my normal things, when I am veering from my routine as well, but at least you are having a good time and recharging.

  3. I do have bloggers remorse now and then. But, look at all of the fun you are having! And how awesome to meet some blogging friends. I hope to do that some day. Have a blast and enjoy the cooler temps:)

  4. I don’t really have blogger’s remorse as I feel any time away from my blog gives me more to blog about! 😉 It looks as though you are having a great time, enjoy it and tell us all about it when you get back! x

    I hope next week is just as fantastic.

  5. I don’t seem to blog much when I’m on holiday either. It just doesn’t happen haha! Glad you’re having a great time though- it’s always nice to visit family!

    I imagine getting away from the heat is nice too.

    How cool that you were able to meet up with fellow bloggers!

  6. Bloggers remorse is a definite thing but don’t worry about your blogging schedule. You’re on holiday and you’re making the most of it. The blog will be waiting for you when you’re back to normal.

  7. That is so cool!!! I think not blogging regularly is just fine when on vacation, especially when you’re meeting some fun bloggers and bookstagrammers. 🙂 I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip! Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Such awesome people you’ve met, G! Especially the one with the bangs and glasses—seems very sweet. 💯

  9. DON’T FEEL GUILTY AT ALL. Though if it helps, I’m also stuck with you, despite having posts in stock from months ago. I just haven’t written anything in years.

    Also I’m JEALOUS you met SHRUTI. Shruti needs to hop on a plane to my area ASAP but don’t tell her I said that. (Actually, she knows this.) I’m happy that you three met and had a lot of fun in the process!

  10. You’re on holiday, just enjoy ❤️❤️❤️ You girls are so gorgeous though! How neat that you got to meet up with so many other bloggers. I hope you continue to enjoy your vacation Gayathri!!

  11. Have fun on vacation! It’s always fun visiting and meeting new family members and getting to know other book bloggers. For the most part, I like my routine too. I see you read Joy Luck Club. I loved that book, and have read and loved most of Amy Tan’s books. I’m so excited to read The Kiss Quotient. Helen Hoang is a new favorite author of mine and I thought both of her books were amazing! Have a great week, and Happy Reading!

  12. You earned a beautiful vacation so yay! I hope you continue to enjoy yourself and have a lot of fun. Oh, dang, I need to read your review of Evelyn Hardcastle. MY NEXT POST IS SORTED, OBVIOUSLY. Annnddd, I want to reread Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe someday soon.

    I’ve not met any book bloggers in person yet but I did meet one of my best friends from when I had Booked J on MYSPACE which totally counts, right? Haha! We met in 2008 or 2009 through that, and met in person back in 2012 or 2013, I can’t remember exactly.
