100 Books Every Woman Should Read: Fiction I've read a number of these, including 'Gone Girl' which was FULL of plot twists. I'd be like "Exactly!" then I'd be like "Holy crap, that's disturbing." Dark and twisted but engaging.
1000 Splendid Suns reflects the violence and hope of Aghanistan from a woman’s point of view. The prose is poignantly and beautifully expressive, poetic in ways that touch the heart and the spirit. Khladed Hosseini, author of Kite Runner, captures war and personal conflict in ways that make history and news intimately personal. One of the best books I have read this year.
