Any Recommendations?


Hey there, readers! The year is almost halfway over (how is that even possible?) and I wanted to pick your brain about any books you’d recommend. I’m participating in a couple reading challenges this year and I need to pick up the pace a bit on books for the Book Riot “Read Harder” challenge. Since so many of you are also book fans, I wondered if you have any recommendations in the following categories?

  • A book written by someone when they were under the age of 25: I think I’m going to read ‘I Am Malala’ but if you have other recommendations, I’d love to hear!
  • A book that takes place in Asia
  • A book by an author from Africa
  • A book that is by or about someone from an indigenous culture (Native Americans, Aboriginals, etc.)
  • A romance novel: I have no experience with romance novels so I’d love recommendations for books that aren’t over the top
  • A National Book Award, Man Booker Prize or Pulitzer Prize winner from the last decade
  • An audiobook: preferably something that’s more interesting or amusing as an audiobook because of the reader?
  • A collection of poetry
  • A book that was originally published in another language

I’m definitely doing my own research but I love getting recommendations from others, too. If you know of a great book that fits into any of those categories please leave a comment below. Thank you in advance!

  1. For a book originally published in another language (Spanish) there is Carlos Ruiz Zafron, The Shadow of the Wind. This is one of my favourite books. I am currently reading the prequel to it Angel’s Game. πŸ™‚


  2. A book published in another (german) language – all quiet on the western front by Erich Maria Remarque:)) It’s about a young boy (18 years old i think) who joined the army. It also tells people how men were destroyed by war. It’s really interesting – you’ll be surprised. read it πŸ™‚
