I feel like I read The Kite Runner ages ago, but the imprint of it still remains. This book left such an emotional impact on my heart that I don’t think I’ll be forgetting about this one any time soon!
This is a book that came out of left field and knocked me on my ass. It was such a good book! I realize that it deals with a difficult topic. A young boy ends up being a suicide bomber. But there’s so much more to it than that. What his childhood was like, what events lead up to that moment, and the thoughts that were going through his head as this all played out. I absolutely loved it! Her writing is stellar! Why has no one else read this??
I refused to read this book for the longest time. All I knew was that it was a historical fiction that people were calling funny as hell and there was a man that turned into a horse. It sounded far too weird for me! And I don’t usually like magical realism…… mix that with historical fiction and it just sounded WRONG! But – it was SO RIGHT! It was absolutely hilarious and the man-horse just worked….. trust me lol.
This was such an interesting debut! I absolutely LOVE her writing style. It was one of those books that I could tell right from the first page that I was going to love it! The magic was interesting, the setting was stunning, and the plot was fast paced. I’m patiently waiting for the sequel……. not patiently at all lol!
Oh Outlander…. how you make my heart swoon! I was terrified by the size of this book but DAMN! It really is as good as everyone says it is! I couldn’t possibly love these characters any more than I do. Jamie….. perfection!! I felt like I was right there, in the world, alongside the characters. This is the type of book that you feel in your bones and in your heart. I really need to get to the (gigantic) sequel soon!!!
