2/18 Confessions

By Kanae Minato

This book is the perfect example for why I already have so much love for this blog. I read Penance last year and just loved it, and you told me about a movie based off another book of hers. 227 more words

1/18 First They Killed My Father

By Luong Ung

This was such an interesting read to start the year with. My boss gave it to my the first day of work – we had spoken about it and he said I could have it when he was done. 527 more words

52/17 The Bluest Eye

By Toni Morrison

This is such a beautiful, lyrical book. I’ve wanted to read something by Toni Morrison for years, but I always thought I would start with Beloved. 442 more words

51/17 Juliet Takes A Breath

By Gabby Rivera

You know my current state of boredom at work, which has left me with a lot of time to read. I started this one on my way to work today, and finished it over a few hours; it’s very easy to read. 490 more words

50/17 Persepolis

By Marjane Satrapi

I’m really unsure how to rate this.

I really enjoyed this. I read it during my train rides in the mornings and evenings for three days, and at least twice I had to put it down because I was tearing up and didn’t want to frighten the work crowd that was pushing in around me on the trains. 562 more words

49/17 Embroidery

By Marjane Satrapi

Lol I’m lending this to my aunt so she can live a little. The Muslim one, of course.

I read Embroidery in the buses to work and felt at some moments that I was being a bit obscene, haha. 79 more words

48/17 Little White Duck: A Childhood in China

By Na Liu

Aiyah, this was so cute! I’m going to keep this book to read to my children one day. I don’t know nearly enough about Chinese history – maybe next year we can make sure we read more books translated from these countries which we don’t know much about? 97 more words
