Wanna Read with Jude

Book Reviews

Fiction of this kind is still very rare in Sri Lanka, either in English, Sinhala or Tamil, it is hoped that the author will write more.

 Gratien Award winner (Gamini Akmeemana)

‘’‘The Beast’ is Sri Lankan born Jude Perera’s debut novel. While having previous experience in short fiction, lifestyle and travel blogging, his recent YA novel is based entirely in the lush splendour of our very own Horton Plains.’’

How I escaped a Narcissist

‘Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity’ Bible Verse (New Testament)
