It's awesome.


She tells no lies. Although if you're in America, I believe the novel's actually called Black and White. You'll have to check on that one.

But yeah, it's a brilliant novel. Read it.

I have to say the book which touched a chord with me has to be The Kite Runner. It was just so awesome. I just watched the movie and even though it wasn't as good as the novel itself, but it was emotional, too.

Besides that, A Thousand Splendid Suns was equally awesome. <3

I also loved reading My Sister's Keeper~Jodi Picoult and The Time Traveler's Wife~Audrey.

Silmarilion & Lord of the Rings - J.R.R.Tolkien
Not many remember how life there began, in the lands amidst surrounding walls of stone and pools of deep darkness, but whilst they forget the secrets of the past, they begin to riddle the future with their growing lust for knowledge, greatness and power.

If you don't mind reading romance Jane by April Linder is really good! It's a modern retelling of Jane Eyre and I think it's fantastic!

Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut. Beautiful.

As said before, I hear that The Kite Runner is good, and I am currently reading A Thousand Splendid Suns, so I can personally say that that's good.
