The Help by Kathryn Stockett

You is kind. You is smart. You is important.

What a beautiful and heart-wrenching book!!! I think The Help by Kathryn Stockett is one of the best books of all time. It’s set in Jackson, Mississippi in 1962 where white people hired colored for their domestic help, for looking after their children but they don’t trust them even with a penny.

1Q84 by Haruki Murakami

I can bear any pain as long as it has meaning.

As you all know I have been raving about 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami for over a month now, on my stories, twitter, or posts and why shouldn’t I?? I mean, seriously, what a piece of art it is!!!

Sun-Catcher by Romesh Gunesekera

You nibble at everything to find out the truth only when you are young. The adult mind just wants to forget, or escape.

There are books that stay with you even after years of reading it. And for me, “Suncatcher by Romesh Gunesekera” is going to be on that list. While I was reading this book, I was constantly thinking about The Kite Runner because of the warmth it had and a whole range of emotions throughout the book.
