Summer Books 2008

I'll be starting school tomorrow so my summer holidays have come to an end, so I thought I'd post my summer reading list which I'm very happy about. I had a To-Read-List for my summer and I read them all and I've read some more. :) So here is what I read and what I thought about it:

The Runaway Jury- John Grisham (It was a great read! I really liked it.)

The devil wears Prada - Lauren Weisberger( It was a nice book, although I think the movie was better which is a shocker since most books are better than movies but oh well...)

Playing for Pizza - John Grisham (I liked it, it was a wonderful read that left me wanting to go to Italy and taste their food so badly. )

A thousand splendid suns - Khalid Hosseini ( Probably one of the best books ever written, I just loved it!!! I recommend it highly!!! I'm a huge fan of Khaled Hosseini's books!)

For one more day - Mitch Albom ( It was really nice.)

The other Boleyn Girl - Philippa Gregory ( I didn't like it, but I liked the fact that I was getting to know a bit of history since it was historical fiction and it was my first time reading that kind of books.)

One hundred years of solitude - Gabriel Garcia Marquez ( I am very happy to have read it, it is a must!!)

Love at the time of cholera - Gabriel Garcia Marquez ( I just loved it. Simply loved the love story and everything, it was amazing. )

PS I Love You – Cecelia Ahern ( It was a nice romantic novel that I enjoyed. )

Digital Fortress – Dan Brown (I am thrilled that I read it because now I've read all the books by Dan Brown and it's great!!! )

Dubliners – James Joyce ( It had some nice stories. )

Journey To The Center Of The Earth – Jules Verne ( I really liked it, it was nice getting back to classics and it was perfect for that. A must read!)

ذكريات جونو – عبد الرزاق الربيعي

The first arabic book that I read this summer and it was about Gonu, so it was a nice read

ماجدولين – ترجمة المنفلوطي – ألفونسو كار

It was the second Arabic book I read, and this was the last one I read from my Summer reading. My IA obsession led me to read it since they both shared the same name and IA's name was taken from the title of this novel, and it was such a sad love story, it was a really good classic! I liked it!! :D

So that's all that I've read, I think I'll be starting with The Choice for Nicholas Sparks since I'm in the mood for love!! Or for love stories that is... :D Hope everyone had a nice Summer. :)
