The Ruby Iyers Diaries (.5) by Laxmi Hariharan: Book Review

The Ruby Iyer Diaries (Ruby Iyer #0.5)

"This novelette is a companion book to The Many Lives of Ruby Iyer. A peek into the soul of an angry, young girl, who will come of age in a city on the verge of total annihilation. Ruby kept a diary from the age of ten till she ran away from home at sixteen. It is from here that I picked out a few diary entries for The Ruby Iyer Diaries. This short series of vignettes from Ruby's life, tells you more a little more about the origins of Ruby Iyer."

This is the first novelette that I have reviewed.  I was nervous that I wouldn't have enough to share as far as opinions because of the length.  Boy was I mistaken!

Laxmi Hariharan has a wonderful style of writing.  I would even call it powerful.  In a short number of pages, she managed to draw me in completely.  By the end of the novelette, I was left yearning for more to read.

My interest has been awakened in this series.  Immediately after finishing the novelette, I had already added the entire series to my "to be read" shelf on Goodreads.  I know that this is only going off of a short part of these books but I would still recommend this series by Laxmi Hariharan.

Could possibly even be a 5 cup rating if I had reviewed an entire novel.


  1. I actually had a similar experience. And I then went on to read the remaining books, and for me, it only gets better!
