100 Books

100 Books

This year I have a goal to read 100 books. 7 down, 93 more to go! If you have any interest in supporting me in this annual goal, I have an extensive wishlist on ;-).

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)
4. Tales from the Expat Harem by Anastasia Ashman (highly recommend)
8. SOLD by Zana Muhsen (highly recommend- about Yemen)
9. My Forbidden Face by Latifa (highly recommend- about Afghanistan)
10.  Princess by Jean Sasson (highly recommend- about Saudi Arabia)

Currently underway:
5. Apples are from Kazakhstan by Christopher Robins (recommend- great explanations of Soviet transitions)
6.  Rebel Land by Christopher de Bellaigue (recommend- historical background via stories of different kinds of people in Turkey including Kurds and Armenians) 

Up next:
7.  Crescent & Star by Stephen Kinzer
