I was ‘nominated’ to do the 7 days 7 books challenge on Facebook by a reader friend. And this is the sort of thing I like, because it forces me to revisit books and my feelings for them. I thought I’ll do books set in ‘unusual locations.’ I’ve been trying to read fiction from regions less known about for the last few years. And so here were my 7
I tried to pick books from far flung regions – ones that those in my circle may not have come across. Unfortunately, I didn’t do anything compelling from Africa or Middle East (or even Australia/NZ) but I had to pick 7. I also wanted to include female authors so that helped me hone this down as well.
In no particular order, these were Jamilia, The Hungry Tide, A Dream in Polar Fog, Zlata’s Diary, Island on the Edge, Papillon, The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society.
What books would you have picked? Feel free to recommend some that I may not have read!
One thought on “7 Days 7 Books”
Thank you for sharing these titles, Udita. I love The Hungry Tide, and the way it depicts the Sundarbans. Such a beautiful and important novel. One can read it over and over again and never get to the end of it. I’ve heard of all the others except for Jamilia and Island on the Edge, both of which sound intriguing.
