Night by Elie Wiesel

– A tragic and sickeningly horrifying true accounts of a young Jewish boy and his father in the Nazi death camp. He witnessed the death of his family and tons of other people held in captivity in his early age.

The torture and the inhumane horror is terribly gruesome that one would wonder why such things COULD and DID happen in human history.

I despise you Hitler. Burn in %$#*#@

The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer

– Following the lives of interesting people in this book was indeed, interesting. 🙂

The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

– Romantic, intriguing and a bit sad, I was hooked to this book. I am not a fan of sappy, overly-romantic novels but this really caught my attention. I know it’s lame to say that I haven’t watched the movie yet. 🙂 But upon reading this, I’ll make sure to watch it one of these days. )

The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice

– Anne Rice is a great writer. I liked her other books, nonetheless, so I was intensely disappointedwith this. I have a copy of the trilogy but I couldn’t bear to finish the whole thing.

Disgusting and horrible.

Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman

– Some people always used to tell me that I was a bit odd with the things I like. 🙂 Fragile Things is one of those things.. and I absolutely, terribly LOVE it. 🙂 I am always blown away by Neil Gaiman’s works and this copy never failed me, yet again. 🙂

Mesmerizing, chilling and bewilderedly eccentric. This definitely swept me off my feet.

Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

– A memoir of the author’s childhood during the Islamic revolution, presented in a comic. This book caught my attention by two reasons:

1. My recent love for memoirs and historic stories.

2. The unique representation through a comic.

It’s a must read. 🙂
