Book recommendations from Twinkle Khanna’s library
Twinkle Khanna needs to start her own book club
A self-confessed bookworm, Twinkle Khanna devours novels like they’re tic-tacs. If we were to read through her entire library, we might age a few years and live a few lives before we’re done. In an interview with Elle, she recalled that her school friends told her she used to have her head buried in books to the point that she would often miss lunch. “But I wouldn’t have been the size I was if I was skipping lunch,” she laughs good-naturedly. Every now and then, the Bollywood actress-turned-author will recommend books to her followers, her very own Twinkle Khanna book club if you will. Everything from children’s books to love stories has made it to her shelves. Here are our top picks:

You know when you check out a book by a same author because you loved his previous work? Well this one didn't hit the spot for Twinkle quite like The Hundred Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared.
Of course, Twinkle sticks to the classics.
The children's book that makes it to most adults' all-time reading favourites.
That time when Twinkle went to detox with her sister and discovered they were reading the same book.
"My Brilliant Friend is brilliant indeed. This book does not do any of the complicated zigzags of successful storytelling but is an arrow that flies parallel to the ground and hits at the heart of all human emotion," Twinkle breaks it down.
The psychology of your relationship wrapped up in a love story.
