Summer Reading List

During our school breaks and holidays, and nearly every vacation, I have got to visit the bookstore. An absolute must! Girls find shopping for bags, clothes, shoes -and the list goes on- therapeutic. On the other hand, books are my ultimate retail therapy and the shopping for clothes or whatever kind of stresses me out.

So, when I do go on one of those shopping sprees...yes, for books, I come back with 4 or more. I absolutely can't leave with less than that and the time I spend in every aisle is ridiculous! And I usually read 1 out of the 4. So with those frequent visits, and with the lack of free time on my hands, I've got a pile waiting to be read. I'll list a few of them now though; the ones I really can't wait to read!

First up is The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown:

Then comes Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson And David Oliver Relin:

Third, Helter Skelter by Vincent Bugliosi with Curt Gentry:

Lastly, The Sand Fish (A novel from Dubai) by Maha Gargash:

I was looking through Amazon the other day, found a few books that grabbed my attention. Can't wait to order them! That's it for now...how about you share your favorites or yet-to-read lists?

Good Night!

-With love,


  1. im not a big reader persay but 3 cups of tea looks interesting

  2. yeah! i think same and even download it already.
    @"Heaven spelled backwards": i like your blog, thanks Blue Pearl, sure will come here with every your new post
    good luck and take care

  3. Hi sister! :)
    I'm also new to your blog and like it here! :) Hope you stop by my blog too. Those books you listed sound interesting! I read the Davinci Code and really really liked it!
    Since you're a bookfan you should really make a bookshelf for your blog from e.g. www.shelfari.com. In that way you can easily share what you've read, how you liked what you read and what your future readings are :)
    I've to wait till the Summer holidays to read again 'cause at the moment I read nothing else but stuff for University, since my exams are coming up.
    Take care :)

  4. I LOVE reading. I've read the top two. The Da Vinci Code a while ago and I liked it. 3 Cups of Tea is interesting in parts (like how they set the schools up) but a bit dull in others. I really like books by Kate Morton. She's written 3 and I've read them all. I recently read Nefertiti by Michelle Moran, The Heretic Queen and Cleopatra's Daughter (all by the same author) and really liked them. I'm on the lookout for my summer reading list!
