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

الكتاب التاسع عشر: رواية “Hollow City” للروائي Ransom Riggs

I didn’t like it as much as I liked the first book. There is something lacking in the story, maybe the thrill of the first book since I didn’t know what will happen and was super excited to know about all these peculiar characters. The best part in this book is the character presentation. The author…… Continue reading الكتاب التاسع عشر: رواية “Hollow City” للروائي Ransom Riggs

الكتاب الثامن عشر: رواية “Cometh the Hour” للروائي Jeffery Archer

  First I have to say I’m relieved to know that there will be a 7th book in this amazing series! It was announced earlier that this would be the last one in the series, so I was super careful while reading the book, and reading the ending I was just shocked how could Archer finish his book…… Continue reading الكتاب الثامن عشر: رواية “Cometh the Hour” للروائي Jeffery Archer

الكتاب السابع عشر: مذكرات “حليب أسود” للكاتبة إليف شفاق

قبل كل شئ، شكرًا أحمد العلي على هذه الترجمة الرائعة. لم أشعر في أي لحظة بأني أقرأ كتابًا مترجمًا كتبت شفاق هذه المذكرات بعد معاناتها مع اكتئاب ما بعد الولادة وتتناول فيه موضوع الأمومة والكتابة، ولكن الكتاب أبعد مايكون عن السوداوية، بل على العكس هو رحلة عبر الروح أو بالأصح مواجهة مع النفس. لا أعتقد أن…… Continue reading الكتاب السابع عشر: مذكرات “حليب أسود” للكاتبة إليف شفاق
