Asian Readathon TBR

I have decided to take part in the asian readathon. I am aware there are some prompts to follow but I pretty much believe the books in my list fill them perfectly. The only prompt I will not be doing is reading Little Fires Everywhere mainly because I have already read it and it's not a book I'm interested in rereading.

Here is the physical list:
  • A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry
  • The Beast Player by Nahoko Uehashi
  • The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
  • On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Voung
  • The Map of Salt and Stars by Zeyn Joukhadar
  • The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
However, there are some other titles I own as ebooks that will work as back up in case I finish my physical TBR:
  • The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing by Mira Jacob
  • Anna K by Jenny Lee
  • Territory of Light by Yuko Tsushima
  • Your House Will Pay by Steph Cha
  • The Immortals of Tehran by Ali Araghi
  • The Mountains Sing by Nguyen Phan Que Mai
  • The Beauty of Your Face by Sahar Mustafah

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

Reading Diary | February Books | 2018

Feb, 1st - 15:15. Finished the second book in the first volume of the Riyria Revelations and I was pleasantly surprised. I still think the world building is the weakest thing about the story because it's not greatly developed but the story is well-written and entertaining. I'm planning on continuing reading the series because now I'm intrigued enough to want to know how everything will unfold. Feb, 7th - 10:33.  I'm finally prepared to go and see the movie Call Me By Your Name because I just finished reading the novel. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It is a celebration of love and an exploration of sex and identity. It's quite explicit though so if you feel uncomfortable with that keep it in mind if you're planning on reading it. My full review of the book is HERE (I also talk a little bit about the movie).
