Summer vacation 2017 reading list

My few collection of books and e-book to read on my long vacation next week.

  • The Kite Runner (by Khaled Hosseini) – halfway through

  • The Bone Clocks (by David Mitchell)
  • The Memory Box (by Eva Lesko Natiello)

I will definitely start with Life From Scratch.

Prepare for culinary life and adventure!

For you, a thousand times over (Part 1)

For those who have read this amazingly gripping story could make out many interesting quotes.

“When you kill a man, you steal a life. You steal his wife’s right of a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness.” – Khaled Hosseini, Kite Runner

As a matter of fact, I just read half of the book. Each chapter gives you an unforgettable important message and morals. I was moved by every lines which were beautifully written, with mixed emotions of raged, sympathy, betrayal and agony. I kept flipping through the pages dwell on the friendship stories of Amir and Hassan particularly. Their friendship grew as time passed by. Hassan always considered Amir as his dearest friend. Meanwhile Amir reluctantly accepted Hassan as a friend and only treated him as a loyal servant. At one time, an unexpected event occurred which was heartbreaking, really – I blame on bullying and stereotyping.

Just like that, their relationship torn apart. Why would Amir kept blaming himself while Hassan was the victim? I’m sure at the end Amir regretted what he had done. Will he be able to recover his broken relationship with Hassan?

When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. Is it wrong to lie to save the life of someone we love.
