100 Books

100 Books

This year I have a goal to read 100 books.  I am rather excited for this goal, as it essentially entails reading two books each week that are not academic or part of assignments for school.  FIVE books down, 95 more to go.  ;-D

1. Little Princes by Conor Grennan (highly recommend- about Nepal)
2. Passage to Istanbul by Joseph Kanon (meh- slow spy novel, not very much culture, do not recommend)
3. Desert Queen by Janet Wallach (you have to be in the mood)
8. SOLD by Zana Muhsen (highly recommend- about Yemen)
9. My Forbidden Face by Latifa (highly recommend- about Afghanistan)

Currently underway:
4. Tales from the Expat Harem by Anastasia Ashman (highly recommend)
5. Apples are from Kazakhstan by Christopher Robins (recommend- great explanations of Soviet transitions)

Up next:
6.  Rebel Land by Christopher de Bellaigue
7.  Crescent & Star by Stephen Kinzer
