It’s the 1st Wednesday of March and time for another episode of 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 No Man’s Land by Nilesh Shrivastava. I had received a copy from the publishers for an honest review. I have read around 100 pages till now & enjoying it. Here is the blurb of the book –
“Land – you can’t burn it like money, you can’t melt it like gold. You can only buy it, sell it, snatch it, grab it. Titles change, governments change, times change but the land stays where it is unmoved and sterile. That is its beauty. But, somewhere deep down, men want to grab its immortality and slip it into their horribly insecure lives. They never can but they never will stop trying.”
Gurgaon, circa 1998. A city is being born. Ordinary farms are turning into virtual goldmines in the shadow of lofty skyscrapers. Agastya, whose days are numbered, lords over one such estate. He realizes it’s time to pass on the legacy to the next generation his estranged sons, Pranay and Karan who will come from Delhi with blemished pasts, base aspirations and a woman who would divide them. And then, not unlike the Mahabharata, the land would become the stage where their greed, affections and deepest fears would struggle and suffocate. No one would leave the place unscathed, if they would leave at all.
I recently finished reading Supertraits of Superstars by Priyanka Sinha Jha. It is a book on a few selected Bollywood stars who have certain traits or qualities in them from which we can draw inspiration in our lives too. You can check my review here.
Regarding the book I will read next, I have 5 books to choose from – The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger , The Flavours of Love by Dorothy Koomson , I am an Executioner by Rajesh Parameswaran, Life is a Pack of 52 cards by Sumeet Jain (won in Goodreads Giveaway) & Maya in search of Tantric Father by Vipin Behari Goyal. Right now, I cannot tell which one to pick first – I guess time will tell!
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!
