hello

welcome to my bookshelf

Update

Sorry, haven't posted in a while. The next week or so will still be a little hectic, expect more posts starting on or around January 27th.
Five books to keep reading until then....

  1. The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimanda Ngozi Adichie: Twelve short stories about Nigerian women in America and Nigeria.
  2. A Novel Bookstore by Laurence Cossé: A bookseller tries to make a story with only good books. Then rises the question...what is a good book?
  3. The Song of Names by Norman Lebrecht: A holocaust novel about a Jewish Polish violin prodigy who, on the day before he is to make his debut, disappears.
  4. A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry: Set in India during partition, it tells the story of three different people and how they survive and how their lives intertwine.
  5. The Other Side of the River: A Story of Two Towns, a Death, and America's Dilemma by Alex Kolowitz: The novel is centered around a black teenager's body that is found in the river, a river that separates a white town from a black town.

Enjoy!
