Weekend Reads: The Crow Girl by Erik Axl Sund & The Book of Gold Leaves by Mirza Waheed


The weekend is upon us. 
This weekend the plan is to read, read and read some more. 

For this edition of Weekend Reads, I also want to include what my sister is reading. 

She is reading...The Crow Girl by Erik Axl Sund.
A dark, psychological thriller that is  garnering a lot of good reviews and hype. 
And it has a cannibal element! 
My sister is a few pages in and she is sufficiently creeped out :) 
It's good she says, dark and creepy and good! 
But it's a chunk of book. So find a comfy spot before you embark on this book! 

As for me I am still making my way through The Book of Gold Leaves by Mirza Waheed

A book set in Kashmir. About two lovers against the backdrop of violence, conflict and strife. 
I am only 62 pages in and really enjoying the writing and the story telling. However it is a little slow. Like there is a lot of descriptions and it's a slow burn of a book...I wish something would quicken the pace a bit...I think it's coming. But so far it's a little bit glacial in it's pace.

If I manage to finish this book, which I don't think I'll end up's quite long.
I'll pick up a book to re-read from my shelves. Maybe something by Sudha Murthy.
Or I might pick one of my many Ruskin Bond books!
Ah! That sounds like a plan.


Happy Reading folks.
Have a great weekend.
