REVIEW: Femonomic: Women Invite Crime by Lovey Chaudhary

The book is 116 pages long. The pages are inked with poems and other things. There are poems about you, me and us. They are about our past dreams, present struggles, and future aspirations. Some are painted with struggles to keep up with the macho and feminine image while others are caramelized with pizza and chocolate cravings that kick in at nighttime. You will read about the struggle of parents after their only daughter gets raped and judiciary lets the rapist escape. Different shades of love and relationships are sprinkled all over with some broken and lovely stories of what consumes us. It is real, sarcastic and funny.

REVIEW: Snakes In The Meadows by Ayaz Kohli

Jammu and Kashmir, 1987. In the hilly village of pathri Aali, where legends appear true, Aslam and ashwar, two young lovers, dream of marriage and of good things of life. But that is not to be. Unable to cope, Aslam leaves pathri Aali forever. Years later, as men migrate to Saudi Arabia for employment, pathri Aali is populated mostly by women and children. Soon they realize the mujahedeen, who guise themselves as their liberators, are the worst perpetrators, and misery seems inescapable. Ashwar refuses to be cowed down by this reign of terror and is determined not to let it devastate the once-peaceful village. The only one she can Bank on is aslam—and she calls out to him across the distance of time and space, to return and live up to the legends of their village. Snakes in the meadows is a saga of the onset of militancy, and the suffering and the resilience of pir panjal—the ‘and’ of Jammu and Kashmir.

REVIEW: Postscript by Cecelia Ahern

It's been seven years since Holly Kennedy's husband died – six since she read his final letter, urging Holly to find the courage to forge a new life.

She’s proud of all the ways in which she has grown and evolved. But when a group inspired by Gerry's letters, calling themselves the PS, I Love You Club, approaches Holly asking for help, she finds herself drawn back into a world that she worked so hard to leave behind.

Reluctantly, Holly begins a relationship with the club, even as their friendship threatens to destroy the peace she believes she has achieved. As each of these people calls upon Holly to help them leave something meaningful behind for their loved ones, Holly will embark on a remarkable journey – one that will challenge her to ask whether embracing the future means betraying the past, and what it means to love someone forever…
