I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

New Review Book Arrived

Children of Dust
A Memoir of Pakistan
Ali Eteraz

Publisher: HarperOne
Release Date: October 13, 2009
format: Hardcover (6x9)
pages: 352
Ages: 18+
genre/category: memoir

from the publisher:
Children of Dust is a searing memoir revealing the truth about militant Islamic fundamentalism in Pakistan and the culture shock of moving to the U.S. Author Ali Eteraz is a compelling young male Muslim voice, and in telling his coming-of-age story he captures not merely pain, but also the love, laughter, and pathos of Muslim life.

An extraordinary personal journey from Islamic fundamentalism to a new life in the West.

Astonishingly honest, darkly comic, and beautifully told, Children of Dust is an extraordinary adventure that reveals the diversity of Islamic beliefs, the vastness of the Pakistani diaspora, and the very human search for home.
