It’s a new year and I’m looking forward to all of the reading I will get to do in the next couple of months before baby gets here. After that, I figure that my reading time will drop dramatically, or that I will end up spending most of my time reading baby books. That’s not such a horrible thing tho. Children’s books can be a lot of fun. And honestly, until she is a little older, I can probably read Spot anything I want and it would have the same effect as a children’s board book.
A Small Fortune
A Small Fortune by Rosie Dastgir was one of the books I started for #ReadTheMargin last month. It follows Harris Anwar, a Pakistani immigrant to Britain and his extended family, as they navigate relationships across borders and generations.
Anwar’s Muslim sense of responsibility and obligation becomes increasingly incompatible with the modern British way of life he has chosen, so when he comes into some money and decides to use it to help those around him, his small fortune brings a huge cost of its own.
Books I’m Actively Reading
I always seem to be reading more than one book. I’ve got a physical book that I’m reading, an ebook, and a book by my bedside table. Hopefully, you’ll see these books in the finished books section next month.
Last month’s #ReadTheMargin challenge has me looking for more books with diverse characters and perspectives. Do you have any books you would recommend?
I have used affiliate links for the books in this post. Using an affiliate link to purchase any of these books won't cost you any more, but it does help pay for website hosting and other expenses - like buying more books.
