One of the last books I read... Awesome!! You get to experience the life of women in the Middle East. Very eye opening

"A Thousand Splendid Suns" Khaled Hosseini. His novel "The Kite Runner" is more popular, but this is wonderful story, and in my opinion the better book.

Just finished this on my commute today.  Incredible, jaw-dropping, heart-wrenching, tear-jerking story.  But definitely a must-read.  Completely changed my mind about the Afghan culture and makes me want to help!

The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini. Story of a boy Amir, from Afghanistan who needs to find his way in the world as he realizes that his own belief system is not that of his dominant culture. Set in Afghanistan and the United States.

Where the Red Fern Grows--Wilson Rawls This book makes me cry every time I read it. One of my favorites.

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. This book chronicles the fascinating life of Chiyo, who is sold to a geisha house, where she later becomes the star geisha, Sayuri. Excellent read and although not as good the movie was well worth seeing

Book Review: Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett | Colline's Blog

Book Review: Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

Pillars of the Earth - Ken Follett. A rich and epic tale set in England.

Elie Wiesel about his experience with his father in the Nazi German concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald in 1944–1945.

This is the true story about a young boy's experiences in Aushwitz death camp. This man still lives and returned to the camp with Oprah Winfrey.

A Child Called It: I have no idea HOW I made it through this book. It was incredibly rough and could only read it in small doses. This was required reading for my minor in Child & Family Studies and my Abuse Against Women and Children course. IDK if I could've read it of my own free will.

A Child Called It | Dave Pelzer New paperback Book pb

This book never fails to make me cry, make me sick to my stomach and want to kill this poor child's mother. But I think everyone should read it, just to know how horrible child abuse is and that these things really happen to innocent children.

Chronological listing of the Little House books--Martha, Charlotte, Caroline, Laura, Rose - I didn't even know that there were more than the ones by Laura Ingalls Wilder

Little House series, Laura Ingalls Wilder. The girls and I started with Little House in the Big Woods this spring. We love Laura & Mary.

In Memoirs of a Geisha, we enter a world where appearances are paramount; where a girl's virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder; where women are trained to beguile the most powerful men; and where love is scorned as illusion. It is a unique and triumphant work of fiction—at once romantic, erotic, suspenseful—and completely unforgettable.

"Memoirs of a Geisha" by Arthur Golden. A fictional peek behind the scenes of geisha culture.
