100 book challenge, 109 in 2009, books

Book Request!

In between submitting to agents and working on my next manuscript, I’m still chugging along on my 100 book challenge for my 109 in 2009. I’ve been very lucky to have had a spate of great books for a while now with each book as good as the last, but now I’m done out of books! Any books you read lately that you think are a must read? Please share, I’d love to request it from my library!

  1. Aisha..
    its after many many days you have returned with a post…

    how are you? why no new posts…
    I found no way to contact you, to know why so long absence from the blog…

    take care and of course I will let you know whether any book is missed that I feel as must read πŸ˜€


  2. If you haven't read it already, I'd recommend Michael Cunningham's “The Hours.” He's a beautiful writer, the structure of the book is intriguing (and works very well), and at its heart it's just a really great story about women's lives, identity, moments that make up life, and the ties that bind us together. Particularly enjoyable if you're a Woolf fan.


  3. The Sexual Life of Catherine M. by Catherine Millet. It sounds vulgar but there is a reason it became best seller and has been translated in 40 languages. It carries you to a very non-erotic journey and mind set of a woman in said given situation. BUT to understand first part you have to read second part “Jealousy: The Other Life of Catherine M”

    I hope I explained myself


  4. I really liked The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende, a bit wordy really well written. My absolute favorite book. It has this magic realism quality to it which is interesting.

    The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka is a quality, short read with an intriguing storyline–a man wakes up to discover he has turned into a huge insect, and it's not a dream. Try it πŸ™‚


  5. I would recommend Destiny Disrupted by Tamim Ansary. This particular book is a history of the world through Muslim eyes, and I learned quite a bit from it. It is also written in a fairly informal style, so it made for a quick read

    If you are looking for fiction, I have been reading a lot of young adult fantasy (I am currently a middle school language arts teacher) and I just came across Journey to the Centre of the Earth by Jules Verne and I cannot put it down πŸ™‚
