A Thousand Splendid Suns is a 2007 novel by Afghan author Khaled Hosseini. It is his second, following his bestselling 2003 debut, The Kite Runner. Both are AMAZING books
Khaled Hosseini is a genius. A Thousand Splendid Suns and The Kite Runner have to be the two most powerful novels I've ever laid eyes upon.
Book Club read... a story about an afghan girl born into shame and betrayed by her father. I think I even liked it more than the kite runner. khaled Hosseini is a talented writer, he really understands the characters and his readers interest in knowing more about the culture
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini -- St. Paul Juvenile PZ7.B69677 Boy 2006 Hosseini, author of the bestselling novel The Kite Runner, masterfully tells the story of two Afghani women, born 20 years apart, who lives are linked through tragic circumstances in war-torn Kabul. A beautiful novel about an unlikely friendship and indestructible love.

Wonderful book! #books #khaledhosseini
And the Mountains Echoed : A brother and sister are separated in childhood, and throughout this epic book, Hosseini weaves a tale of family--across countries and through the perspective of many characters-- and of how, sometimes, we must make hard decisions that hurt us and those we love, as we seek some greater good.

And the Mountains Echoed ~ a story of siblings and family by Khaled Hosseini who wrote Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns
And the Mountains Echoed - Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations.
And the Mountains Echoed is the much-awaited new book from the author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, Khaled Hosseini. His writing was as superb as ever, although I did find the book a little slow in parts.
Book review: The beloved author of “The Kite Runner,” Khaled Hosseini, returns to the rugged landscape of his home country, Afghanistan with "And the Mountains Echoed."

My favorite books are about WW2. The resilience of that generation inspires me. I think our children should learn in greater detail the sacrifices that were made for our country and the world by these brave men and women. This book is about one such man and the many he served with and endured with. A must read for the history nerds like me!
Original pinner, "My book club read this when I was sick and they all have enjoyed it and have been passing it on to all of their friends/family who in turn pass it on. They tell me it is a must read nonfiction"
Just readd this with my book club...I learned so much about WWII and the human spirit!

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, I feel like I'm building my virtual bookcase filled with all my favorite books ever!
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (and series) are my current favorite books. I read the entire series in less than a week. Afterwards, I watched the movie and was highly disappointed. There was so many details lacking and it drove me insane. I guess that's why i prefer books to movies.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - It's dark, so be prepared but worth reading! Lisbeth is freakin awesome and smarter than all of the people in that book put together!!
The Book Cover Archive: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, design by Peter Mendelsund

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - current book club pick
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. "Stieg Larsson witnessed the gang rape of a young girl when he was 15. He never forgave himself for failing to help the girl, whose name was Lisbeth – like the young main character of his books, herself a rape victim, which inspired the theme of sexual violence against women in his books." (Wikipedia)....I enjoyed reading this book, but it was pretty intense. I think it triggered a bit of a response toward feminism and "stop rape" organizations. I don't recommend the movie because the rape scenes were far too graphic among other unnecessary scenes. Plus they changed the ending and ruined it anyways. Hopefully this book/movie will raise awareness to the fact that there are sick rapists who get away with their crimes and that it needs to end.

Go Ask Alice - Anonymous So powerful! Especially because it's real. A great look into the mind of an impressionable teenage girl in the late 60s early 70s.
Go ask Alice / Anonymous - A deep, enriching book about a teenager's fight with an addiction to LSD. Every teen and adult should read this book at least twice; my dad made me read it at fourteen, and not only was I forever discouraged from experimenting,but it also became one of my very favorite books of all time.
Go Ask Alice- Anonymous. Writen in the form of a diary, this is told to be the real journal of a teenage girls serious fall into drugs.
Go Ask Alice by AnonymousThis anonymously-penned novel (although some speculate these are actual diary entries from a girl named Alice) is like Scared Straight in book-form. Written in harrowing first-person detail about a teenage girl's plummet into drug addiction, this frightening read has stuck with young adults for a long time. #refinery29 http://www.refinery29.com/classic-teen-books#slide-10
