Favorite Reads – Tag
I saw this tag on Victoria‘s blog and thought I’d post something non-makeup related. I love to read and you’ll find stacks of books by my bedside waiting to be read. Here’s a sampling of some of my all-time favorite books. It was actually very hard to pick. I read many of these a long time ago and found it hard to summarize so I have pulled info from Amazon.
The Kite Runner
“The Kite Runner tells the gripping story of a boyhood friendship destroyed by jealousy, fear, and the kind of ruthless evil that transcends mere politics.” Amazon.com
This is one of those books that stays with you long after you’ve put it down. It is riveting.
This is essentially a love story and is about to be released as a movie. I encourage you to read this book first if you are at all thinking about seeing the movie. It is an amazing read and not sure how they will be able to capture all the nuances in the book. Again, a tear-jerker and one that you will think about for days. It is one of those books where you get to parts and wonder what does this mean and I don’t get it. But stick through it and you will be hooked. It is essentially the love story between a man named Henry who can travel in time and meets his wife Claire when is a child, a teenager etc. It is told from his and her perspective. That’s all I can tell you. Go out and get this book!
