South Asian Author Challenge

SouthAsiaReading

January 1 – December 31, 2010

Swapna from S. Krishna’s Books is hosting a terrific challenge in 2010. The South Asian Author Challenge is all about reading books written by authors who are of South Asian descent which includes India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh. The books also have to be about those countries (culture or history) in order to count toward the challenge. When I perused my stacks, I found many books which fit the challenge…and there are also other books/authors I am interested in reading. I am committed to reading 5 books (I may increase that number later).

Here is the list of books from which I will choose (I may add more as more books arrive in my stacks):

  1. One Amazing Thing, by Chitra Banerjee Diakarumi – COMPLETED March 30, 2010; rated 3.5/5; read my review.
  2. The Marriage Bureau for Rich People, by Farahad Zama
  3. The Wish Maker, by Ali Sethi
  4. Burnt Shadows, by Kamila Shamsie
  5. Family Planning, by Karan Mahajan
  6. The House of Bilgis, by Azhar Abidi
  7. Saffron Dreams, by Shaila Abdullah
  8. The Interpreter of Maladis, by Jhumpa Lahiri
  9. The Glass Palace, by Amitav Ghosh
  10. The Hungry Tide, by Amitav Ghosh
