Travel The World {Monthly Motif Mar Check In}

Welcome to another month of the Monthly Motif Reading Challenge! If you haven’t yet- make sure you add your February {One Word} book reviews to the Link Up. Now, on to March {Travel The World} …

Travel The World

“Read a book set in a different country than your own, written by an author from another country than your own, or a book in which the characters travel.”

This is really one of my favorite prompts because I love learning about other countries and other cultures through fiction. I typically like to listen to my book choice on audio because then I get to hear the narrators awesome accent!

To get you started, check out…

Our Choices

❧ Tanya … My choice this month is coming from one of the Major Book Award Winners from last year –  The Moon in the Palace, Weina Dai Randel.

The Moon in the Palace (Book)RITA Award Winner – Best Mainstream Fiction with a Central Romance

“A concubine at the palace learns quickly that there are many ways to capture the Emperor’s attention. Many paint their faces white and style their hair attractively, hoping to lure in the One Above All with their beauty. Some present him with fantastic gifts, such as jade pendants and scrolls of calligraphy, while others rely on their knowledge of seduction to draw his interest. But young Mei knows nothing of these womanly arts, yet she will give the Emperor a gift he can never forget.”

❧ Kim … My choice this month is The Girl Who Takes An Eye For An Eye, David Lagercrantz.

This is the 5th books in the Millenium Series (Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) and I’ve been on hold for it through my library for a couple of months.

“Lisbeth Salander is an unstoppable force: Sentenced to two months in Flodberga women’s prison for saving a young boy’s life by any means necessary, Salander refuses to say anything in her own defence. She has more important things on her mind.”

    I read Ben Lerner’s Leaving The Atocha Station (set in Spain). I liked it but had some doubts.

    The linky thing says it closed for this one. [Sad face]
