August Reviews!!

Hey international traveler peeps!
So this is our 6th month, and so you should be working on your 6th book in August.

To add in a little excitement I have a great book to giveaway this month. It is one of my favourite reads, so stay in touch.

Post your reviews in the comments, Mr Linky is still down, I think I will give up on it.

Be sure to include the nation of origin (or where he/she resides or resided or if you are choosing to go with where the author was born) of the author, as well as the title of the book. For example: (Absent by Khedairi- Iraq)or (Half of a Yellow Sun - Nigeria)

Make sure you head over to each other's reviews to comment! We all love comments :)

Enjoy your reading travels.

EDIT: Mister Linky is BACK!! Just when I had given up! :)

I'm still here. As confused as ever I'm trying to organize my wanderlust challenge. I am really enjoying it. I'm just a confused person.:(

I just read Mosaic by Soheir Kashoggi. The author is from Egypt. But the book is set in New York and Jordan.

I liked it. :)

Yay! Glad you got Mister Linky back up. Wish I had learned about that months ago when it was actually fixed--what a pain!

Just finished A Golden Age about Pakistan-Bangladesh War. Interesting book, wonderful writing, but not a favorite of mine. Everyone else loves it, though! Definitely worth at least trying...
