  1. Interesting collection! I’ve watched the Reluctant Fundamentalist, and a friend enjoyed reading it. On a separate note, not sure if you’ve read A Thousand Splendid Suns, but definitely one of my favorites.


    1. I’ve yet to watch the film version but it’s on my (ever growing) watchlist, and no, haven’t read A Thousand Splendid Suns…yet. Thanks for the reminder (that’s another one on my shelf, waiting to be read).


Thanks for reading and please leave a comment
