I have nothing much to blog today; however I would like to share some of the books I bought during lunchtime earlier, hehe.

They are mostly literary fiction books. Here's what's new on my TBR pile:

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Astrid and Veronika by Linda Olsson

Fragile by Niki Shisler

I bought the first two books because recently I have read great reviews about them (I couldn't believe I gave them a miss when they were first released! But come to think of it, I wasn't really a great fan of literary fiction books then, but now I am. :D) I have also decided to read Astrid and Veronika after finishing Twilight and In Your Eyes.

    I have Kite Runner in my TBR too. :) Nice to see you bought so many books, Mel. I gave up listing mine because (shame on me!) I've been book-shopping almost daily. SIGH...

    Oh, I forgot to mention. I've just bought 3 of Anne Stuart's book from the Ice Series. Found them quite cheap for USD19.50 at www.BetterWorld.com -- I hope the package will arrive within 2 to 3 weeks' time... :D

    I just read A Thousand Splendid Suns and loved it so so much. My review is up on my blog if you're interested.

    I've been making that shift lately as well. And I definitely want to get The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns read one of these days, too. Seems as if blogging has really opened my eyes and expanding my horizons when it comes to reading. And that's a good thing!


  5. If I would have known that you wanted to read the Kite Runner . . . . I would have sent it to you . . . . . Hubs read it and doesn't want to keep it (like most of his books). I will have to go thru them and send you a list, we are getting ready to take a stack to donate . . . . if there are any you want I will just send them over the big pond, lol!!

    Hi Lisa! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm so glad to hear another book lover enjoyed the book, and I'll definitely check out your review. :)

    Hi Debi! That's exactly my thoughts. :) Hopefully you'll get to read them soon.

    Hey girl! I'm so thrilled to hear you'll be sending me a list! LOL. Thanks for everything, you've been a great friend/sis! :D
