I am still not sure if numbering this 'Recent Books on My Shelf' posts is a good idea or not, nevertheless I will continue doing so until I am convinced otherwise :D Hope the last sentence was not too confusing ( yea, TH told that long sentences are too bad).
I am facing some kind of disinterest in updating this blog even though I have a few interesting books to write about. So let me write about those ones..
The Loving Spirit by Daphne Du Maurier was picked after my fantastic encounter with Rebecca. Click to find my review of Rebecca. I found this book slightly boring initially but then this complex and twisted story of a family spread over four generations was quite engrossing. But then this book was nowhere near Rebecca.
Our Lady of Alice Bhatti was an impulsive pick from the library too as I have heard a lot about the award winning book 'A Case of Exploding Mangoes' and it is also true that one copy of that book is sitting right on my book shelf. This is a very interesting read and I could not figure out the significance of the Sacred Heart on the book cover till I finished the book. And the ending left me with a weird feeling. I will write a review when I can pinpoint what was really weird.
I am currently reading 'The Burgess Boys' from Pulitzer Prize winner Olive Kitteridge. Though I am almost half way through the book, I am still not sure if I liked it or not.
There are a few more kindle books on my Galaxy tab which I intend to take up as soon as The Burgess Boys are over.
