The Kite Runner is the story of Amir, a Sunni Muslim, who struggles to find his place in the world because of the aftereffects and fallout from a series of traumatic childhood events. An adult Amir opens the novel in the present-day United States with a vague reference to one of these events, and then the novel flashes back to Amir's childhood in Afghanistan.
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness This is kind of a mix between The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane (which I LOVED) and a better written Twilight. At least this heroine can do things and I liked all the history. I enjoyed this but I think the lesson we have all learned is that if you date a vampire they will be bossy and kind of annoying. Look for a pulse ladies.
