Hello, people of the universe. I am back again!!! Yes, you are seeing my post again. I am trying my best to regain control over my life and trust me it’s going great. I have decided to blog as much as I can. My health is back at a beautiful time. The rainy season is here and so am I with a special interview from one of my favourite authors; Laila Bhaidani. When we read a book, many questions come into our mind, so why don’t I help you get your answers to these crucial questions?? Don’t think and just come along. Now let’s wander off to the interview, shall we??
Bookish people always love reading more and more about books of all sorts. Trying all genres is kind of hard for a bookworm but we don’t back off, do we?? It’s because books are all we ever crave for in our pitiful lives, especially in the times of Covid-19. So when I look back at the books I read, I think trying a new book written by Laila was a great experience for me. So without making you sleepy come along people.
Before I start the post, here is the link to the previous post regarding Laila Bhaidani.

5. Whatever you write in your books have you taken it from someone’s experience or are they your own experience??

So those are the questions and answers. I am so glad to finally get this interview out. I won’t say I haven’t disturbed her. I literally did everything a mischievous niece does to disturb her aunt. I delayed the interview, I read the book a long time back but didn’t review, I kept on calling her and eating her brain when she was busy… I did literally everything that a professional person doesn’t do but Hey!! Before you judge me, she is my aunt and I have a right to disturb her. After all, I wasn’t here for 18 years, so the least I can do is recompense myself for missing out on all this.
But I must say, I am a huge fan of her book. The stories she writes has some uniqueness I have never seen. I am waiting eagerly for her next book although I have no idea when it will be out and what it will be. It’s a surprise you see. She will just come out with the book and probably ask me to review it and I promise I will review it on time 🤭
I had so much fun interviewing her and reading her book, you guys should really try her book. I will put the link down here and you guys go check it out and trust me when I say this, she writes some really unique and mind-blowing stories. Just because she is family doesn’t mean that I am promoting her or anything, I am just stating the fact. Check out the link, people.
So that’s it for today. I will be back tomorrow with the last post of this interview set. I will be publishing another book review in 4 hours so do check that out too. I will take your leave and be back in 4 hours until then…
