Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
Doctor Sleep

alfijahchild, December 27, 2013

Reading Doctor Sleep was very much like sitting down to eat and savor a sumptuous, abundant feast. It was so rich and delicious. Doctor Sleep is my foray into the books of Stephen King; I saw the Shining, and Doctor Sleep is the sequel to the Shining. However, this is my first experience of sitting down at a banquet prepared by the master, Stephen King. I was told that King is one of the foremost writers on human psyche and human behavior and that he would be taken more seriously on these matters if he were not a horror writer, and it's absolutely true. He has incredible insight into human beings.
King is a masterful story teller weaving various strands into a plush, magical tapestry. This novel has substance abuse, recovery, relationships, compassion, connections, secrets, fear, monsters, murder, amazing character development, great voice, and magic. Whether you're new to King or familiar with his style and stories, you will be completely captivated with Doctor Sleep, and you will have 500 plus pages to feed your feening, book junky self.

Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson
Alif the Unseen

alfijahchild, June 21, 2013

Alif the Unseen is one of the best books I've read in recent times. It has it all: love, heart break, technology,mystery, danger, religion, reality,spirituality, intellect, and jin, spirits. G. Willow Wilson is a truly masterful story teller. She is gifted as you will soon find out because Alif is a must read. You can't go wrong with this book. I will accept your gratitude now as you will be thanking me for my recommendation. This book will be made into a movie for sure.
Enjoy!
