The Kite Runner

The Kite Khaled Hosseini....An amazing book... Its a very popular best seller ...i guess everyone already has an idea of how good this book is.. I will just say one thing about this book...for those who haven't read it yet ...It is a must-read..!!

This is a page turner with complex characters and situations that will make you think hard about friendship , good and evil, betrayal and redemption...It is an intense suspenseful story with interesting twists... Totally un-put-downable..!!

This book teaches the reader about many things ...It teaches us about how hard it is to forgive our ownself than to forgive others...and the saddening and shocking consequences..

The Kite Runner has taught me a lot and i feel this book should be read not only because it tells us about the lessons written above but also because it gives us an idea about reality... 

I hope I'l get the chance to read the next book "Thousand Splendid suns" soon.. .!!!

The house of night series ...

After completing the Twilight series... i have started reading another series on vampires... well these vampires..spelled in this series as Vampyres... is much different from the Cullen family.. ! Though its not AS intersting and WOW like Twilight... still its quite fun...and i have completed 4 parts of this series.. 
The House of Night series is a best-selling series written by P.C and Kristin Cast..

The House of Night series takes place in a world where vampires are no secret. Selected teenagers are “marked” during their adolescence with a giant crescent tattoo in the middle of their forehead. If marked, a teenager must go live at the House of Night, a chain of boarding schools that train fledgling vampires and help them make it through The Change.

Marked begins when Zoey Redbird is chosen to become a vampire and follows her through her time at The House of Night in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Overall it is an entertaining series... with an exciting take on the vampire genre..  
I am looking forward to read the rest of the books in this series .. Hope it has an interesting ending too.... maybe like twilight..?! Ok..I won't expect another twilight... because...this story is totally different... 

Thanks for reading my blog.. :) 
I'll try to post some more reviews soon...

A Walk to remember...

In the list of my favourite authors... i added one more name , the day i read this book...  NICHOLAS SPARKS...the best-selling american novelist..

I never cried reading a book as much as i cried while reading "A walk to remember".....

'Every now and then you stumble across an extraordinary book that at first
 appears like countless others, but then you read it and are amazed at the
 treasure within. A walk to remember is such a book... ' New york sunday post.. 

Its an achingly moving story.... if you want to cry , read this book.... 
An incredible love story like no other..

Landon Carter is a popular kid in school, Jamie Sullivan is a sensitive outcast who was raised by a southern baptist reverend, and against all odds they fall in love and fight to let their love overcome all, including Jamie's ongoing battle with leukemia. This book will leave you in tears and wanting more. I have the pleasure of knowing that I atleast had the opportunity to read this one. It's everything that love should be and I wish I had that in my life.

Some other books by Nicholas Sparks.. which are worth reading are. 

The notebook, Message in a bottle, Dear John, The first sight, The last song,the wedding... etc..
