Shelfie Feature – Pravina Maharaj

Next up is Pravina Maharaj, a Senior Producer at SABC Lotus FM. She is an author, and she is an In-Training Emotional Freedom Technique Therapist.
Pravina states, “My love of reading began as a kid – I devoured tons of Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys Mysteries and Sweet Valley High books. As a teen I loved the Sweet Dreams books and nowadays I read a mix of romance, suspense and mystery. I am currently reading a fun romance novel, ‘Say You’ll Be Mine by Naina Kumar.’”
Continuing, she shares, “Libraries are my most favourite places in the world – I frequently visit Musgrave Library and check out 10 books at a time!”
What do you love about reading?
I love that I can be transported to different eras of time and meet the most amazing, unique, quirky and villainous characters – all within the comfort of my armchair! I can be in modern day New York or Victorian London – just by the turn of a page.
I love that reading engages all my senses – I can actually see the settings, feel the emotions of the characters and even smell the scents being described or feel my mouth water at the description of a decadent meal.
Reading is also a great way to relax and de-stress and nothing relaxes me than a good book at the end of a long day.
What was your favourite book last year?
In December I read a historical romance series by Olivia Drake. The trilogy is Seducing the Heiress, Never Trust a Rogue & Scandal of the Year. My favourite book of the series was Never Trust a Rogue.
Pravina is a published romance author. Her debut novel Angel of Ice, a fast paced romantic suspense, was shortlisted for the 2017 Minara Aziz Hassim Literary Awards and is available on Amazon Kindle.
