My Top Ten Reads

I was tagged by my friend Fadiosis, to write about my top ten books. And boy what a hard job that will be. First, because I don't know which are my top ten. Second, I think a person is somewhat defined by what he/she reads and likes, so here comes the pressure. And yes, if you don't read your somewhat empty.

I won't list them as to which is the best and so forth. I will list them randomly as which comes to my head first. So here we go,

My Friend Leonard. I am in LOVE with James Frey. This book made me feel. I was sad when James was sad. I cried when he did. I wept and gasped for air when he did. I smiled, I laughed, I felt depressed, lost hope, all when he did. I felt it then a heart beat after I read him feeling it. For me that is the ultimate definition of good writing.
Plus I fell in love with and started using the word "Fuck". LOL

P.S to Oprah: so what he lied and said it really did happen. He's an amazing writer and that all what counts. :P

روضة المحبين و نزهة المشتاقين لإبن قيم جوزية
This is one of the very few Arabic books I have ever read. I didn't buy it. I don't know who put it in my room. But I was bored so I just grabbed it and *puff* all the satisfying answers my teenage-confused brain needed to know about love. This book is a MUST read to everyone who is -like me- do not understand others obsession with love and a MUST to those who are obsessed with it and truly know nothing about it. So basically its a must for everyone.

A Prisoner of Birth by Jeffrey Archer. This book is just cheer brilliance. I love love love it.

Kane & Abel, another master piece by Jeffrey and I must say I HATE Abel!

The Prodigal Daughter. This is the sequel of the previous. I read it a few months after. It is really amazing but he just kept repeating a lot of things that happened for the readers who haven't read the first. So it kinda pissed me off. Other than that it's a master piece.

Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. Sick, entertaining, amazingly written and alpha 5 reductase deficiency. Enough said.

Angels & Demons. Everyone must have a favourite Dan Brown. The science, the art, the thrill. What's not to love?

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. While reading it, at first I was very confused. The plot was like nothing I ever read. I'm not even sure there was a plot and I kept asking myself who is the freaking heroin? But then I semi got it and gave in. At the end it all sunk in and I knew I was reading something that is written by a genius. I even got goosebumps.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling. If only she did not kill my beloved Snape *weeps*.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. This also made me feel. I have said enough about it here.

*Traaa* I'm done. xD

I tag: Bookworm, Another Penelope, Skittles, Candy, Shahirah Elaiza , and who ever feels like doing it. =]

Please Be Straight

For a couple of days now, I was watching Brothers & Sisters. It is a good show after all. But that is not what this post is about.

Noticed Scotty -Kevin's husband. He is so hot, the nicest thing ever and plays a chef. If anyone like that exist, I want him. So I had to google him to make sure he is not really gay. But guess what? He is gay. And the real shocker, guess who's his boyfriend? Wentworth Miller.

That leaves me with my friend's Fadiosis question when she found out the Adam Lambert was gay: Why is all good men gay? *Sigh*

No, come to think of it. I don't REALLY KNOW any gay guys. Except for that one guy that I suspect that he is and he reminds me of monkeys and still I don't know him. So the real question is why do the media make gay guys look so glamorous, cute and extremely nice?

P.S: I was gonna tweet this but it was a bit long, so .. :P

A Pickle

Do you know that theory or fact or whatever, that when a person pops up in your head out of no where it means he/she is thinking of you? So I was thinking how could you really truly know that he/she started the thinking, not you?

Law Abiding Citizen

I just saw Law Abiding Citizen. And its Oh emm gee amazing! Got some mixed feelings about it though. So watch out *some serious spoiler alert*

Dear Clyde,

At 1st I was all in with you Clyde. Justice must be served for the sake of your girl and wife. Even when you killed more than the killers, I was OK with that. The corrupted, twisted freaking system NEEDED a lesson! But baby, when I learned that your job was to plan murders for people the government wanted to get rid of, I had a change of heart. It's kinda of hypocritical. And in away what happened to your family was just pay back. But after awhile I changed my mind back, screw the system, everyone who's making it be and you. If not for your daughter and wife, then for the other people that were screwed by this injustice.


So kids the lessons from this movie are:
A) pay back is a bitch.
B) what goes around comes around.
C) do the fucking right thing even if it hurts. You will be rewarded and not be punished. If not in this life then in the after one. The one that counts.

P.S: to the sweeties who tagged me in stuff. I will do it inshallah when I have internet connection again. :)
