I missed out on last week’s Wednesday coz I was swamped with work and I really missed posting 😦 But here we are again – Another Wednesday, Another Post 😉
This theme is hosted by MizB over at Should be Reading.
To play along, just 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?
What are you currently reading? After reading a couple of depressive books, I needed a break and so returned to an old favorite guaranteed to put me in a good mood – Murder on the Orient Express by Ms. Christie! I can read the book in an hour or two, but I’m reading languidly on purpose to relax and unwind 😉
What did you recently finish reading? Recently finished Kaalam (Time) by M. T. Vasudevan Nair, a renowned Indian author. This is the English version, the original is written in Nair’s native Malyalam. It is a coming of age story, of a young boy Sethu, set within a matriarchal joint family in Kerala, the author’s home state. I found it rather depressing. You can read my review here.
Before that I finally read The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy and didn’t find it too bad! I liked her style more than the story though, which is also depressing. Most Bookers are in my opinion 😉 Read my review here.
And most recently I read Virginia Ironside‘s ‘No! I Don’t Want to Join A Bookclub’, in an attempt to get over the two depressive books and although it began promisingly enough, it got boring after a while. The humor seemed tired and contrived and not very funny. Still it was a light, easy read, although ultimately disappointing. A very average read.
What do you think you’ll read next? I have a lot of books on my TBR shelf, none of which seem very appealing at the moment 😛 Isn’t that always the case?! Just an excuse to go out and buy more books coz that’s what I need – MORE BOOKS 😉 Maybe I’ll read Johnathan Franzen’s The Corrections or perhaps Netherland by Joseph O’Neill. Leaning towards The Corrections!
What have you been reading? Share your links in the comments section so I can scout around for more reading choices 😉
Happy Reading People 🙂
