Author Titbits is a new section on my blog where I speak to authors about their current favourite book, TV show or Movie and their guilty pleasure or weekend routines. Today I had the pleasure of speaking with Mayur Didolkar, author of The Dark Road that I reviewed here a while back and also author of several short stories on the Juggernaut App. He writes mainly in the thriller genre and is becoming a popular author in the same genre. You can follow him on twitter here.
I am a straight up mystery/thriller/horror reader. The latest book I finished reading is Moonlight Mile by Dennis Lehane which is sort of a sequel to Gone Baby Gone. it is a very gripping thriller with easy to identify with everyday characters that I really love reading about. Next two on my two read list are Gabriel Tallent’s debut ‘ my absolute darling’ and Stephen King’s ‘Sleeping beauties’.
Favourite Movie/TV Show
I love sitcom type comedy shows on tv mostly. Producer Chuck Lorre is some kind of genius so all of his shows – the big bang theory, two and half men, mom are absolute favorites. In a minority opinion I am a How I met your mother over Friends kind of a guy. One fan fact- I dinf it difficult to enjoy a comedy series without the laughter track, don’t ask me why. Other than these I love two reality shows- America’s got talent and Penn and Teller :fool us, which is a magic reality show. I absolutely love the presentation of the latter and having watched 4 seasons I am thinking I am developing an ear to understand the cryptic clues Penn gives to the magicians performing before him.
Guilty Pleasure / Routine
Usually I am fairly task oriented, so my guilty routine is blowing it all off and doing nothing – maybe just binge watch a show on TV or just hang out with friends at malls exchanging gossips about those not present. I find this kind of goofing off helps me relax and rejuvenate.
