Slightly Peckish Tuesday

Umami Mart

This week’s Slightly Peckish Tuesday is a special edition where I sit down and have lunch with an actual person from Umami Mart. Hurray! So check out our foray into traditional Bombay café culture London style at Umami Mart: Slightly Peckish!

In bookish news, I am once again gripped by Malazan fever and have started Orb Sceptre Throne by Ian C. Esslemont. It’s had pretty disappointing reviews but I’m enjoying it so far and feel it to be closer to Erikson’s novels than its prequels.

Our next book group read is Under the Skin by Michel Faber which I should be starting in a couple of weeks. I didn’t particularly like Crimson Petal and the White (I know I’m in the minority here) although Romola Garai’s depiction of Sugar in the tv adaptation was pretty good. But Faber’s first novel is a mystery and I’m rather intrigued.

I am also going through my annual phase of wanting to read books that will give me some direction and inspiration in life. I am congenitally averse to self-help books but one of my friends recommended Mrs Moneypenny’s Career Advice for Ambitious Women by Mrs. Moneypenny and Heather McGregor and I am tempted to read it.
