الكتاب الثلاثون: رواية “فتاة القطار” للكاتبة بولا هوكينز

Although it is labeled as a “psychological thrill,” what I was interested in was the way Hawkins depicted Rachel. Rachel, who was divorced for over 2 years, was still emotionally attached to her ex-husband. She couldn’t let go; and she couldn’t accept the fact that they are no longer in a relationship. The thought of…… Continue reading الكتاب الثلاثون: رواية “فتاة القطار” للكاتبة بولا هوكينز

الكتاب التاسع والعشرون: رواية “The Narrow Road to the Deep North” للروائي Richard Flanagan

This is one of the finest books I read this year, and at the same time one of the hardest. I spent many days trying to navigate my way through the book, not because the language or  the style were difficult ( which well in fact sometimes were), but rather because the story itself was appallingly…… Continue reading الكتاب التاسع والعشرون: رواية “The Narrow Road to the Deep North” للروائي Richard Flanagan

الكتاب الثامن والعشرون: “Adulthood is a myth” لـ Sarah Anderson

I don’t want to review this SUPER AMAZING comic book, instead I want to share with you all the 100 pages of the book. It is REALLY, REALLY funny. Couldn’t stop laughing while reading this book- which by the way I read 5 times in a week ! I relate to almost all Anderson’s illustrations. The way…… Continue reading الكتاب الثامن والعشرون: “Adulthood is a myth” لـ Sarah Anderson

الكتاب السادس والعشرون: كتاب “داخل المكتبة..خارج العالم” للمترجم راضي النماصي

الكتاب عبارة عن مجموعة من المقالات المترجمة حول القراءة. أولًا يشكر المترجم على مجهوده، الترجمة كانت جيدة. لكن كمراجعة للكتاب، لا أعرف ما سبب الضجة التي أثيرت حول الكتاب؟ لا أعتقد أنه بالأساس كان يستحق النشر، المقالات كان بالإمكان ترجمتها ونشرها بمدونات أو صحف. أنا لا أحب فكرة جمع عدد متناثر من المقالات التي بعضها…… Continue reading الكتاب السادس والعشرون: كتاب “داخل المكتبة..خارج العالم” للمترجم راضي النماصي

الكتاب الخامس والعشرون: رواية “The Ocean at the End of the Lane” للروائي Neil Gaiman

It is a gripping novel that filled me with awe. I’m really surprised with Gaiman’s talent to turn words into vivid images, building an enchanting world. I’m not really into such kind of books, but this one was a page-turner ! It is a heroic tale about a child’s battle between innocence and dark forces. It mixes childhood ignorance with…… Continue reading الكتاب الخامس والعشرون: رواية “The Ocean at the End of the Lane” للروائي Neil Gaiman

الكتاب الرابع والعشرون: كتاب “Spirituality in Young Adult Literature” للباحثة Patty Campbell

  I read this book for academic purposes, and I really found it quite informing and useful. The book proposes one main question: why authors avoid religion/ spirtuality issues when they write young adult books. To answer this question, Campbell divides her book into eight chapters and includes a ninth by a contributor . She begins each…… Continue reading الكتاب الرابع والعشرون: كتاب “Spirituality in Young Adult Literature” للباحثة Patty Campbell

الكتاب الواحد والعشرون: رواية “another day” للكاتب “david levithan”

This is a sequel of “Everyday.” Comparing the two? Immediately I will say the first. This book is good because only I want to know what Rhiannon was feeling about all this. Did she really love A or not? How did she process the whole situation? But as a stand-alone book I don’t think it…… Continue reading الكتاب الواحد والعشرون: رواية “another day” للكاتب “david levithan”

الكتاب العشرون: رواية ” Library of souls” للكاتب Ransom Riggs

This is the third installment in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series. This installment takes the story to another level, concentrating mainly on 3 characters. As the previous installments, Ransom waves his story brilliantly, although unlike the second installment, the characters are not well-developed. What I liked most about this book is the vivid description…… Continue reading الكتاب العشرون: رواية ” Library of souls” للكاتب Ransom Riggs
