The Reading Bud is for my love of books and sharing my favorites with you.
Hey there, my name is Heena and I am the creator and administrator of The Reading Bud. I am from Pune, India and work as the Editor-In-Chief at Citrus Publishers. I am a writer of dark fiction, manuscript critic and fiction-writing teacher. A published author of 2 books, I love book blogging and reviewing books as well as hosting authors for promotion on my blog because that is how my own writing journey began.
You can read more about my novels on my website. If you want to connect with me for some bookish gossip and nerdy conversations then I can be found here:
About The Reading Bud
The Reading Bud is a book blog and a cosy hangout for all the bookworms, dragons and whatever being you consider yourself to be! Here you will find a continuous stream of Book Reviews, Audiobook Reviews, Graphic Novel Reviews, Author Interviews, Guest Posts, Cover Reveals, Excerpt Reveals and other bookish posts.
At TRB, I review books that I read – these include the books I buy, issue from libraries, request from NetGalley or the ones offered to me by authors and publishers for review. I also do paid reviews here (only when I am really constricted for time) as well as on other websites and e-mags.
I respect authors, publishers and publicists alike and believe in helping the book community as much as I can!Tweet
I also run a bookclub, both online as well as offline – RMFAO. The main online one is a Goodreads group. There is also a Facebook closed Group – RMFAO and one on WhatsApp where mostly we decide our monthly book meets.
If you want to promote your book or are looking for an author interview and/or guest post host, then read more about our book promotion service here: TRB Book Promotions
