I am drawn to books set in other countries/cultures, historical fiction, science/nature/anthropology, YA, science fiction/fantasy, social issues. Current interests: Buddhist philosophy, chronic illness/pain. Books high on my list: - Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng - Girls Burn Brighter by Shobha Rao - A Place For Us By Fatima Farheen Mirza - An Introduction to Buddhism (Core Teachings of Dalai Lama) by The Dalai Lama - The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee - When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi - Turtles All the Way Down by John Green - The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air) by Holly Black - All You Can Ever Know by Nicole Chung - Sick: A Memoir by Porochista Khakpour - The Girl Who Smiled Beads: A Story of War and What Comes After by Clemantine Wamariya - When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times by Pema Chodron - The Wise Heart: A Guide to the Universal Teachings of Buddhist Psychology by Jack Kornfield - A River in Darkness: One Man's Escape from North Korea by Masaji Ishikawa - Other Minds: The Octopus, the Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness by Peter Godfrey-Smith - Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson
Don't get this!
- Anything I have reviewed/rated on LibraryThing as that means I've already read it ;) - Graphic novels. - Romance - Murder/mystery/noir/pulp
I prefer paperback to hardcover when available as they are lighter in weight (and usually cheaper 😉).
