Because even I am tired of my own Musical Mondays, I’ve borrowed this book tag from Smitha.

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:
I’m currently reading…
Up next I think I’ll read…
I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…
I blogged about ____ this past week…

I’ll choose this. Up next, I think I’ll read…

And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. I have two books unread from the library yet. This and a Jodi Piccoult one. I am sure both are going to be difficult reads. But I am more wary of Piccoult’s books because they almost always hit closer to home.

Let’s talk about Hosseini. The Kite Runner is a powerful book like no other. I remember being overwhelmed by the book when I read it. Even now, as I type this, I am able to conjure up the images that I had of the scenes from the book. His next book, A Thousand Splendid Suns was good too; except it couldn’t match up to The Kite Runner.

So well.. I have chosen his ‘And the Mountains Echoed’ as my next read. It’s got great reviews as usual and all I am hoping it doesn’t make me cry much.
