  1. Great reading month! I have Internment here to read and also really want to read The True Queen. I’m not doing any challenges except for Goodreads this year. I enjoy finding books like Wicked Fox that are set in foreign countries.

  2. I’ve had quite a run of Asian novels over the past couple of months. I just finished Sarong Party Girls yesterday which is written by a Singaporean author in Singlish so that was fun 🙂

  3. I lvoe the reading map. I’ve tried diversify my reading this year by purposefully choosing books from countries I haven’t read before. Sometimes its the author and sometimes it is the book’s setting (often it is both).
