WWW Wednesday Vol.14 (29/01/2014)

www_wednesdays43Hello people!

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 UNBOWED by Lestine. I had won it in a Goodreads Firstreads Giveaway. I am into the 3rd chapter now. I hope it turns out to be a good read! 🙂 Here is the blurb of the book –

unbowed

“And years later, when she finally evolved a mind that could examine itself, she wondered how such concepts as fear of her own thoughts, shame of her own body—the very vessel that nature fashioned and her soul adorned—arose at all. When did her body become something alien—separate from her? 
So begins UNBOWED, the story of Basma, an obedient wife who makes an unwitting decision with far-reaching consequences. Filled with sex, forbidden love, shocking brutality, unflinching feminist prose, and chador-wearing gladiators carrying AK-47’s, nevertheless, UNBOWED is a story of Hope.
Set in present day cosmopolitan cities of New York, London and Paris, with their burgeoning immigrant populations, and spanning other international locales, UNBOWED weaves together three plotlines to illuminate the violent extremes some patriarchal cultures have gone to—to reinforce absolute power over women and girls—and the equally extreme, yet opposite, paths three women embark on, to change the game.”

I recently finished reading THE OTHER SIDE by Faraaz Kazi & Vivek Banerjee. I had received the book from The Readers Cosmos in exchange of an honest review. My review of the book can be read here.

Regarding the book I will read next it will be one out of Devil wears Prada & Revenge wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger. These two books were gifted to me by a friend on Christmas/New Year.
