A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
Book Club, Worth Reading, Khaled Hosseini, Book Worth, Splendid Sun, Afghanistan, Kite Runners, Favorite Book, Good Books
Second in series after the Kite Runner. Both incredible books worth reading!
A Thousand Splendid Suns is a 2007 novel by Afghan-American author Khaled Hosseini. It is his second, following his bestselling 2003 debut, The Kite Runner. The book focuses on the tumultuous lives of two Afghan women and how their lives cross each other, spanning from the 1960s to 2003. A beautiful account of a country so foreign few care to understand it, this moving tale of family, friendship and faith in Afghanistan is one everyone should open their hearts to.
This is by far my favorite book, and Khaled Hosseini is my favorite author. A Thousand Splendid Suns portrays one of the strongest and most touching relationships I have read about - the friendship between Mariam and Laila. It takes place in Afghanistan and explores the many struggles women have to go through. I don't want to give any of it away by providing a summary or review, but please just read it! You won't be disappointed!
A Thousand Splendid Suns - great book! Good book club read.

Favorite Book: Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
Nineteen Minutes was an amazing story. It kept me hooked from beginning to end. Definitely a book worth reading more than once!
best Jodi Picoult book in my opinion. About a high school shooting, and the whole book takes place in 19 minutes.
Nineteen Minutes Jodi Picoult... Anything by Jodi picoult is worth reading.
One of my favorite Jodi Picoult books. I think almost everyone can identify with the book in some way. In this emotionally charged novel, Jodi Picoult delves beneath the surface of a small town to explore what it means to be different in our society. In Sterling, New Hampshire, 17-year-old high school student Peter Houghton has endured years of verbal and physical abuse at the hands of classmates. His best friend, Josie Cormier, succumbed to peer pressure and now hangs out with the popular crowd that often instigates the harassment. One final incident of bullying sends Peter over the edge and leads him to commit an act of violence that forever changes the lives of Sterling’s residents. Even those who were not inside the school that morning find their lives in an upheaval, including Alex Cormier. The superior court judge assigned to the Houghton case, Alex—whose daughter, Josie, witnessed the events that unfolded—must decide whether or not to step down. She’s torn between presiding over the biggest case of her career and knowing that doing so will cause an even wider chasm in her relationship with her emotionally fragile daughter. Josie, meanwhile, claims she can’t remember what happened in the last fatal minutes of Peter’s rampage. Or can she? And Peter’s parents, Lacy and Lewis Houghton, ceaselessly examine the past to see what they might have said or done to compel their son to such extremes. Rich with psychological and social insight, Nineteen Minutes is a riveting, poignant, and thought-provoking novel that has at its center a haunting question. Do we ever really know someone?
