Hi Noura- I want to start reading some classic books by famous authors such as Ernest Hemingway. Do you have any personal recommendations on which of his books I should start with? thanks! asked by Anonymous

Hello! I am afraid i can’t help you with this one since i haven’t read any of his books but i have heard that the old man and the sea is the one to start with.

Hello Noura, tried to contact you and I even send my email over here but no answer I'm sorry if I am troubling you. ? :/ I decided to summarize the final chapter ? asked by Anonymous

i AM SO SORRY FOR THE LATE REPLY! haven’t been on tumblr in ages. and i haven’t actually gotten any emails or else i would have replied.

I did mention you in a post though saying that the first chapter would be great but i guess the last one could work just as well, how did it go? hope it went well. sorry again.

Dear anon,
Chapter one in a thousand splendid suns is around 5 pages or so and would be perfect for your assignment.
I haven’t read the entire book to be quite honest but the first chapter is so beautifully written that I think it will do just fine.

Hope that was some kind of help.


No you'll not get hate from me I totally understand what you mean which is way I had second thoughts about it. Also, you're so amazing for answering thank you so very much <3, It has to be 5 pages and I have to list a couple of hard words (vocabulary with their meanings) so it should intermediate not too easy or very hard it is due on the 22nd of march :) I read ATSS long time ago, I just wanted to get an insight from an avid reader & someone who appreciates the written world like yourself :) asked by Anonymous

This seriously makes me happy, you messaging me that is. I will read the book in March then (before the 22nd, i promise) and get back to you. If you want, you can come off anon so we can discuss this more because i don’t know how else to contact you =/ 

Hello Noura, I have to write an English assignment, and I have to choose a chapter from a book and summarize it. I read a lot of young adult novels and initially I thought about The Fault in our stars but I have to choose a perfect chapter and it should be only 5 pages so I was like meh. I am not sure they'll be good enough for my prof can you suggest a book I could read then summarize? What about A thousand splendid suns? But I can't choose a chap ? PLEASE HELP ME asked by Anonymous

hello lovely human. wow, that actually sounds like an interesting assignment! I’m glad you didn’t choose the fault in our stars to be honest and don’t get me wrong! i have read and enjoyed the book but there’s more out there that have better content? (will i get hate for saying this?)

also, A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS IS THE PERFECT CHOICE ACTUALLY! such a heartbreakingly beautiful book but i don’t know how i can help you because i have read that book almost 5 years ago and the content of it is all foggy since all i can remember are scenes not chapters or anything of the like.

buuuuut if you can tell me when your assignment is due maybe i can reread the book and help you pick a chapter?

sorry but that’s all i can think of right now.
