WWW WEDNESDAY VOL. 35

www_wednesdays43Hello book lovers!

It’s another Wednesday and here I am with another episode of WWW, the weekly book meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. To play along this meme, 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 Letters from an Indian Summer by Siddharth Dasgupta. The book is a review-copy from the publisher. Here is the cover and blurb of the book –

letters from indian summerA love story between an Indian photographer and a French artist, Letters from an Indian Summer is suffused with a strong sense of serendipity and spiritually liberal doses of the things Arjun Bedi and Genevieve Casta hold dear in this world. The past, though, lurks constantly around every chosen corner. Will the secrets they harbour end up destroying them, or will the unspoken belief in their entwined cosmic paths be much too strong a force . . ?

I finished reading 2 books since my last WWWThe Lotus Queen by Rikin Khamar & M for Misfit by Sarika Pandit. The review for The Lotus Queen cane be found here and that for M for Misfit is work-in-progress. 😛 Here are the covers and blurb of the book –

lotus queenSoon after the beautiful young Padmini becomes Queen of Chittor – the most important city in Rajputana – she finds her happiness clouded by an ancient curse. Her life is then torn apart when the scheming Sultan of Delhi becomes obsessed with possessing her and her kingdom.

When the Sultan besieges the city, the Rajputs are pushed to the brink of destruction, and Padmini is faced with a terrible decision – one that will determine the fate of her home, her people, and her love.

Set in the backdrop of 14th Century Rajasthan, The Lotus Queen richly blends fact and fiction and weaves together a tale of love, friendship, and inner courage, in the face of extreme adversity.

M FOR MISFITZoey Verma, Third Ranker from the Bottom and Virtually-Unemployable, has managed to land a job! Management trainee and first-time employee in the fridge-manufacturing giant J & K Ltd, Zoey is clueless about where her life is headed. She has barely managed to pass out of B-school when fate pushes her into another whirlpool. And, a look at her own fridge will confirm that she has no fascination for them. The tall, thin, frizzy-haired Zoey enters J & K shaky-legged. And, when her scary boss Wimpeater sends her to the company’s seedy Delhi branch to map all the consumer durable outlets in the city, her life goes into overdrive. Chances of it stabilizing seem slimmer by the day as she dodges gaalis from the Delhi boss, Chhota Don and fends off lecherous looks from distributor Shady Singh, all the while evading her clingy ex, Velcro Man. Then, just as she finds herself on the brink of a nervous breakdown, she is sent back to Mumbai. The move turns out to be a plunge from frying pan into the fire as Zoey becomes a victim of dipping sales and growing slurs, forcing her to ask questions so existential, even Kafka would be impressed Read on to find out how Zoey finds her way back to what she wants, both personally and professionally.

Regarding the book I will read next, I think I will take a break from reading and party a bit and usher in the new year with friends, food, drinks & loads of fun!

WWW Wednesday is a great way to discover new books & blogs too. So friends, feel free to leave your links to your WWW 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!
