Archive for October, 2013

I am very excited to be back here. I have been away for so long and as such I have fallen behind on all the hot new releases out there.
But allow me to stop right here and insert a disclaimer:

“ I hardly read books as soon as they are published. Same thing for movies.”

There is no reason other than the fact that for me books and movies are to be enjoyed; they come in flavors that should be savored at our own pace.

I appreciate the reviews from the New York Times and other book reviewers out there but I cannot promise that I would give you reviews of just published books because I might not deliver on that promise.
Even though I was away I was able to catch up on some old reading.

I only discovered the beautiful writing of Nafisa Haji in ‘The Sweetness of Tears” and “The Writing on My Forehead” in October 2012.
In January and February of 2013 I savored my Christmas gifts from my bestie Marthe “Gone girl” by Gilian Flynn and “Killing Kennedy”.
In June I had a beautiful baby boy. Kellan loved when I read to him while he was still in my tummy; but more of preggers baby books to come in a later post.

Right now, Baby Kellan is wake-up-once-a-night the night 3 month old and I am ready to find company with my books. I hear “ And the mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini is a great place to resume. Will give an update in the next two weeks.

Any other suggestions my dear people???

Happy Reading!
