I've read "sophie's world" by Jostein Gaarder  & "the Runaway jury" By John grisham. Spohie's World and its quite an emotional book, while Runaway Jury is a thriller. If you wanna enjoy a fast paced read , Runaway jury is the one, and if you want a nice emotionally gripping read - Spohie's World. It was amongst the must read lists when it was out and I remember I enjoyed the book immensely!!!

I haven't read the other three but I have bought "My sister's keeper" By Jodie picoult and after I finish "The Kite Runner" I'll be reading it so we can read it together!

But I now, Sareeta, I have to go buy Sophie's world... I like your review.

Oh great, Sareeta, then we should read "My Sister's Keeper" together... I keep saying to everyone because I love it when someone else is reading the same book as me so we can talk about it at lengths.. You know it's fresh in your mind and that's when we can have the best discussions Embarrassed

I think I like "Beneath My Mother's Feet" because I have been introduced to that culture and I know that that really does happen... I was actually expecting a tragic end but to my surprise the end was pretty uplifting and full of hope - another reason why I like the book.

Are you reading anything now? Because I have to finish "The Kite Runner" which shouldn't take more than 2 days because I have exams... Then we can start "My Sister's Keeper".
