I haven’t posted in a little while, but it’s not because I haven’t been reading. I am currently reading Loung Ung’s Lucky Child, which is about her emigration to American from Cambodia after the Khmer Rouge was defeated by the Vietnamese. It’s the second in a trilogy of books she wrote about her life; her new book, Lulu in the Sky, came out a few days ago. I am participating in a blog tour and will review Lucky Child next week.
I am also listening on audio to A Good American by Alex George, which I am enjoying so far. I am realizing that I really like historical fiction about immigration to America in the early 1900s – does anyone know of other books I should explore that cover this time period?
In other book-related news….
- I am participating in World Book Night next Monday. I will be passing out copies of Ann Patchett’s Bel Canto to “light readers” to try to get more people reading. Picking up the books tonight from my favorite bookstore in DC, Politics & Prose.
- If you’re a GoodReads member, would you mind voting for EDIWTB in the Independent Book Blogger Awards? It’s listed there as one of the Adult Fiction blogs. Thank you! The deadline is Monday.
That’s the update from here – will be back with reviews when I get through these books!
