I've had a pretty good reading week, which sort of explains my absence from here. I also picked up my half-done first knitting project (a scarf for the husband) which I had set aside a few months back, waiting for the right season. I've almost on the home stretch now and cannot. wait. for. it. to be ready!
The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson - after two months of listening in the car. Phew - what a long book. By the end, it felt just like a saga - it was hard saying goodbye. I also finished Mohsin Hamid's The Reluctant Fundamentalist, the ending of which I found quite interesting. It did leave me wondering what it takes to make a fundamentalist and how cyclic the cause-and-effect pattern of it can be.
Next in the list
This weekend, I picked up Allegiant by Vernoica Roth. I was never a fan of this series because of its poor writing, silly dialogues and sappy romance, but this book made it worth sticking around. It still suffers from the same flaws but it finally brings everything to a nice circle. After this, I'm not sure which one I'll read. Mostly, it could be Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House.
