It’s been a while since I wrote about the books that got in my hands, and although I don’t have that much time to read as much as I would like to, I still manage to keep up with the “2 books per month” challenge. Here’s an overview of the books I read this year (I excluded the parenting books I focus a lot nowadays).
I got my hands on this book at the ‘Walled Off Hotel’ in Bethlehem and I thought it would help me better understand the realities and the conflict between Palestine and Israel and their recent history together.
My reading resolution for this year is to read as many books as I can get my hands on from other continents, except Europe. We need new names is one of these books and I found it after doing a bit of online research on the best fiction books in Africa.
An amazing book on the condition of women in India, written by journalist Elisabeth Bumiller after living for 3 and a half years in India.
This book got into my hands as a recommendation for getting ready for the South Africa trip and it turned out to be a very inspired decision to read this book prior to the departure.
