This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is:
Books on My Summer 2020 TBR
Well, summer is pretty much a stay-home edition this year, our flight to Singapore has been canceled (and there would be a two-week quarantine period anyway, which renders the holiday a stay-home version too), and we have no other plans for travel as we are still cautious about how things are going.
So the best way to spend summer is to armchair travel!
Here are some books that will take me around the world. And as you may know, I tend to have an interest in books by Asian authors so there may be more books set in Asia here.
What are some of your favourite places to armchair travel to?
Everything Inside by Edwidge Danticat
I love Danticat’s writing. And this one is a collection of short stories set in a variety of places like Miami, Haiti.
Bangkok Wakes to Rain by Pitchaya Sudbanthad
Thailand is one of my favourite places to visit. I’ve been to quite a few cities – Bangkok, Koh Samui, Phuket, Chiang Mai
Record of a Night Too Brief by Hiromi Kawakami
Japanese short stories
If I Had Your Face by Frances Cha
Set in South Korea
The Weight of our Sky by Hanna Alkaf
A Malaysian story
Sharks in the Time of Saviors by Kawai Strong Washburn
Set in Hawaii
And the Stars were Burning Brightly by Danielle Jawando
By a British author
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.
I lived in The Philippines for a year during high school, but that’s the only country I’ve really visited in Asia (I had a layover in Tokyo, but that doesn’t really count since all I saw was the airport). Armchair traveling is the only way I’m going to visit most countries, so I’ll have to settle for that. Especially now. I hope you enjoy your travels, even if they can only be done through the pages of a book!
The Weight of Our Sky looks like a great book.
Sorry to hear about your cancelled trip. What a shame.
My TTT .
All my summer plans got canceled too. It sucks, but maybe I’ll have more time for reading. I hope you love these books!
