  1. Would like to see your review for Khaled Hosseini’s Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. 😀

  2. Really enjoyed reading your reviews for Kite Runner, Boy in the stripped pajamas & Giovanni’s room. I’ve only read reviews of the books I’ve read. I was wondering if your reviews contain any spoilers if you haven’t yet read the book?
