It’s Wednesday and time for WWW, the weekly book meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.To play along, we just have to answer the following three (3) questions…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?
And here are my answers this week:
I am currently reading THE OTHER SIDE by Faraaz Kazi & Vivek Banerjee. I had started reading UNBOWED but then The Other Side arrived in my mail-box, with a reading time-frame. So I have kept UNBOWED on halt for now & have started reading THE OTHER SIDE (I cannot read more than one book at a time 😦 ). It is based on paranormal things. The start of the book was quite impressive. I hope to enjoy reading this book. Here is the blurb –
“A slow rasping sound made me turn. I jumped back, the cell phone leaving my hands and smashing against the concrete floor. Someone was seated on the chair, rocking back and forth. Through the fallen light, I could see those hands placed on the arms of the chair, two gruesome wrinkled limbs with ugly boils plastered over the black skin. The red bangles on its wrists shone in my eyes, momentarily blinding me. That thing and I call it a thing because I could sense it wasn’t human as no human could have such a hideous form, as vile an existence as the one seated opposite to my horrified self.”
From a honeymoon in the hill that goes horribly wrong to an obsessed lover who wants his first love in life and in death; From a mentally deranged man who collects body parts of various women to stitch together his dream girl to a skeptic who enters a mansion of horrors to win a bet and much more, this book is filled with scenarios that are guaranteed to give you goosebumps and sleepless nights.
‘The Other Side’ is a collection of thirteen tales of the paranormal; a world that our eyes refuse to see, our ears deny hearing and our senses ignore the feel of. This is a book for someone who is brave enough to take up this invitation to journey through uncharted waters along with the authors, who were inspired by some bizarre experiences to pen down this work where the lines of reality have been blurred by the footsteps of imagination.
Each story takes you on a tour de force of unadulterated horror and draws upon the deepest fear in the human mind- the fear of the UNKNOWN!
I recently finished reading The Secret Wish List by Preeti Shenoy. I enjoy reading Ms Shenoy’s books. They are simple & her characters are people whom we can relate to or identify with people around us. I liked this one too. The review will be up in a few days.
Regarding the book I will read next it will be undoubtedly UNBOWED by Lestine. I had won it in a Goodreads Firstreads Giveaway.
WWW Wednesday is a great way to discover new books & blogs too. So friends, feel free to leave your links to your WWW Wednesday posts or your comments (if you don’t have a blog), so that I can check out what you’re reading. Till then, happy reading! 🙂
