Four novelists tell us why they write, what inspires them, and what books you should be reading too

If you know anything about HT Brunch, you know we’re nuts about books. And we’ve been holding the #BrunchBookChallenge every year since 2014. Each year we set ourselves reading targets: 24 books: check. 48 books: check. More Indian authors, more women writers, more classics, more unfamiliar genres: all checked. And along the way, we’ve found a priceless community of readers and writers.

This year’s challenge is a reboot. Read 24 books before the year ends. Each time you finish a book, tag @HTBrunch on Twitter and Instagram using #BrunchBookChallenge. (ILLUSTRATION: MALAY KARMAKAR)
