What I Read: October 2013

October is midterm month. Barely having enough time to sleep, I didn't find much time to read. As a result I only read two books:

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
Publisher: Riverhead Trade (2008)
Format: Paperback, 415 pages
ISBN-13: 9781594483851
Originally published: 2006

4 out of 5 ships: Thirty years of Afghan history told through the lives of two utterly different women. Important work telling the story through voices we rarely hear from in the West. Do read!

The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J. K. Rowling
Publisher: Bloomsbury (2008)
Format: Hardcover, 109 pages
ISBN-13: 9780747599876
Originally published: 2008

4 out of 5 ships: The tales were great, but Albus Dumbledore's comments make it so worth reading. Very amusing, and quick read showing us that the wizarding world isn't so different from our own after all. A must for any Harry Potter lover.

What I Read: 2013
