Sharing with you my recent reads.

Believe me when I say that I have never been a fan of any other love stories other than between a man and a woman. For as long as I can remember I have been a love story kind of reader. So when I  chanced upon this book by Khaled Hosseini, I was intrigued.

I was touched from the moment I read the first sentence up to the last chapter. I never thought that human beings could endure so much suffering and so much happiness at the same time. The human spirit is truly resilient.

Love in all aspects is also one thing I will never be able to fathom. As many would say, do not tire yourself understanding love, just feel it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested to know more about relationships, its ups and downs, luster and darkness, hopes and dreams and d how it helps one to accept and let go.

Another book from the same author just because.

This book is also up there at the top of my list. From the moment I read the first page, I could not put it down and spent the whole night reading it. I was so pumped up and so eager to research more about the women in Afghanistan.

This book, will make you cry and will touch the innermost parts of your heart. If you are a woman, you will  experience different emotions if you read it in one sitting. Since I’ve had a sheltered life, I am in awe at how strong the women characters are in this book. Each one had taught me something I could bring into my life. Each one had made me realize how fortunate I am. Each one had made me see and feel how, as a woman, I have a voice and that I should be heard, that I am equal to a man, that I have the right to love and be loved passionately and tenderly, that I am a partner and never a slave and that I am a human being.  Definitely a must read.

These books will surely ignite something inside all of its readers. It certainly struck something in me and that I am not the same person as before I read them. And I continue on with another Housseini book, And The Mountains Echoed.
