Yeah! I think A thousand Splendid Suns & Kite Runner are two very very popular books in recent times!

teaschip! I have been reading Mary Higgins Clark since young. And nicholas sparks is one of my favourite too! Along with Stuart Woods!

The last three weeks I read or re-read 10 thrillers of Barbara Nadel that all take place in Istanbul, absolutely recommendable. Now I´m reading a thriller by David Morell, about CIA/MI5/KGB/Mossad hitmen.

I´m currently reading Nobody´s Child and I cannot imagine how sad a boy´s life can get. The saddest of it is that this is actually a true story...

 Have you read her latest already, Marion? ´A passion for killing´? About a serial killer targeting gay men in the streets of Istanbul. A very good book!

Quoting Trudy

 Have you read her latest already, Marion? ´A passion for killing´? About a serial killer targeting gay men in the streets of Istanbul. A very good book!

 

 Theres a brand new one out this week!

 

Pretty Dead Things.

 

Here is the publishers blurb:

 

When Emine Aksu, the flamboyant wife of an Istanbul style guru, suddenly goes missing, Inspector Cetin Ikmen´s investigation leads him deep into her strange and colourful past.Emine was a hippie when she was younger, who wholeheartedly enjoyed the liberated lifestyle that swept across Istanbul in the sixties. Her husband suspects that she was visiting an old friend at the time of her disappearance. Meanwhile, Inspector Mehmet Suleyman is called to a terrifying scene at the art deco Kamondo Stairs in the old banking district of Karakoy. The skeleton of a woman has been discovered in one of the large plant containers. Could these two bizarre incidents be linked?

Currently reading Orhan Pamuk´s Snow for next week´s review.

 

Now, I am a great hater of Pamuk´s other works, but I really like this one!  I´m on page 350 out of 425 or so....

Reading ´Turkish butterflies´ (Turkse vlinders), a Dutch novel about a love that didn´t last but also gives lots of inside information.
