One of the greatest things that happened to me lately is that I returned back into reading stronger than before. When I say stronger I mean finishing a book in 3-4 days lol.
So, so, so, two weeks ago, I finished reading “If I should Speak” by Umm Zakiyyah. Hher way of writing is simple and moreover impressing. Islam prevails in all of her books with quotes from the Quraan. The book is followed by a continuation in another book of hers called “A Voice”. She has two more books which are “Footsteps” and “Realities of Submission”.
Last week I finished reading “Alchemist” by the famous writer Paulo Coelho. Everybody made a huge fuss about it saying that it’s the bestest book ever. I read it and would you believe me if I said it bored me?! I admit some parts of it were mesmerizing but overall, I thought it would wow me!
I read two of his writings last year and I really loved them, the latter more than the first. They were “Eleven Minutes” and “Veronika Decides to Die”. Veronika’s story will be on TV soon but I don’t think it will be any nearer to how amazing it is in the book. I am intending to read more of his work after I am done with my own readings because this author is one of a type.
Today, I have started reading “The Littler Prisoner” by Jane Elliott. Oh my God, I can’t describe how sad the story is and how tortured the poor girl is. I kept on reading it today and was choking knowing how illtreated she was with her mom aknowledging all that. I have earlier talked about another story that I read which was about the torture of a little boy here but “Little Prisoner” suffering can never be compared to it!
I have been feeling so happy today and I don’t wanna ruin my mood whatsoever. Why, it’s because a bunch of books were shipped to me from Canada by a sweet friend of mine. I can’t wait to finish “The Little Prisoner” till I read them all.
To read list are :
I wish I can finish each in one week so I can start another good read after 2 months lol.
Crazy I know ;D
P.S. Guide me to good reads please 😉
