Another one of my highly anticipated reads set in a non-Western country is Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani’s “Buried Beneath the Baobab Tree”. Set in Nigeria, and based on the real-life events of April 14th, 2014, when the Boko Haram kidnapped 276 young girls - this book is powerful, haunting, and IMPORTANT. (CW: Sexual Assault, Violence) ___________________________________________ #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas #ReadWithMeemz #OwnVoices #WeNeedDiverseBooks #IndigoEmployee #WeNeedDiverseAuthors #RepresentationMatters #12DaysOfChristmas #Bookstagram #DiverseBookBlogger #DiverseSettings #BooksByWoC #ReadMoreWoC #BuriedBeneathTheBaobabTree #BringBackOurGirls
I don’t have enough words to gush about this next #12daysofdiversechristmas Recommendation for books set in non-Western countries. Adib Khorram’s “Darius The Great Is Not Okay” is a breathtakingly sweet, heartfelt, tender coming-of-age story of a half-Irani, half-White teenage boy with depression, who doesn’t fit in - either in the US, with his (primarily) white classmates, or with his ‘manly’ dad (who also has depression), or with his Persian family & friends. When Darius goes on an extended visit to Iran, for the first time he makes a friend who understands him - maybe more than anyone has ever understood him. This book was so sweet that I’m getting a little choked up just talking about it. Tissues are a must, and so is reading this heartfelt YA debut. ___________________________________________ #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas #ReadWithMeemz #OwnVoices #WeNeedDiverseBooks #IndigoEmployee #WeNeedDiverseAuthors #RepresentationMatters #12DaysOfChristmas #Bookstagram #DiverseBookBlogger #DiverseSettings #DariusTheGreatIsNotOkay
Another #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas book set in a non-Western country is Tanaz Bhathena’s “A Girl Like That”. This contemporary YA novel is set in Saudi Arabia, & starts off with a car accident, where two teens are looking over their dead bodies. As the author takes us through the circumstances that led to this car accident, readers are introduced to a compelling story about love, heartache, secrets, #drama , and ultimately, hope. This is high on my “to read” list. ___________________________________________ #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas #ReadWithMeemz #OwnVoices #WeNeedDiverseBooks #IndigoEmployee #WeNeedDiverseAuthors #RepresentationMatters #12DaysOfChristmas #Bookstagram #DiverseBookBlogger #DiverseSettings #AGirlLikeThat #BooksByWoC #ReadMoreWoC #ReadTheNorth #
Rawi Gage’s Beirut Hellfire Society is set in Lebanon, during the Civil War. It’s about a secret society that provides funerals for the misfits, the outcasts, the ostracized, the people traditional funeral homes wouldn’t bury. This book was.... queer.. to say the least. And by queer - I mean really strange. Quirky is too light of a word, & strange is too aloof - this book was kind of messed up, and kind of amazing. Smart & well written (albeit weirdly paced) - this was a pretty enjoyable read, unlike anything I’d ever read before. ___________________________________________ #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas #ReadWithMeemz #OwnVoices #WeNeedDiverseBooks #IndigoEmployee #WeNeedDiverseAuthors #RepresentationMatters #12DaysOfChristmas #Bookstagram #DiverseBookBlogger #DiverseSettings #BeirutHellfireSociety #ReadTheNorth
I will never get tired of talking about this breathtaking book, so it’s the perfect story to start my list of recommendations of Books set in diverse settings (non-Western Countries). Crystal Hana Kim’s “If You Leave Me” is a compelling & painful story of family, friendship & love, in a time of Civil War. Incredibly well written, this story hooks you in, as you follow the lives of multiple characters - across different points in their lives. A vivid portrayal of Korea after the separation, during the Civil War, & through times of political (& personal) unrest - this book will take your breath away. An often painful, and incredibly heartfelt read - the characters are real and flawed and sympathetic and captivating. I really really enjoyed this book, & can’t wait for more from this author! Reminiscent of literary powerhouses like Lisa See, Madeleine Thien, Khalid Hosseini, & Yaa Gyasi - Crystal Hana Kim is a writer to watch! ___________________________________________ #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas #ReadWithMeemz #OwnVoices #WeNeedDiverseBooks #IndigoEmployee #WeNeedDiverseAuthors #RepresentationMatters #12DaysOfChristmas #Bookstagram #DiverseBookBlogger #DiverseSettings #IfYouLeaveMe
Day 4 of the #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas , and today’s suggestions are all going to be books set (primarily or exclusively in) non-Western (primarily non-white) countries. Setting is hugely important in every story, and it’s important to explore more than just Western (primarily Canadian and US) settings - to get a feel for other cultures, countries, and experiences. I’m excited to show you some books with #DiverseSettings , so get ready for some great recos! ___________________________________________ #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas #ReadWithMeemz #OwnVoices #WeNeedDiverseBooks #IndigoEmployee #WeNeedDiverseAuthors #RepresentationMatters #12DaysOfChristmas #Bookstagram #DiverseBookBlogger #DiverseSettings
Julie Anne Peters’ Lies My Girlfriend Told Me is another great recommendation for #12daysofdiversechristmas . This was one of the first books I ever read that fit into the category “Queer Stories that aren’t Coming Out Stories”. This book follows Alix, a teenage girl, reeling from the sudden death of her girlfriend, Swanee. Desperate for a memento or a keepsake to hold onto her, Alix keeps her girlfriend’s phone, only to discover recent texts from another girl, telling Swanee she loves her. Now grappling with the fact that Swanee had been living a double life and dating another girl, Liana. Alix and Liana start getting closer, brought together by betrayal and grief, but their relationship was built on web of lies and betrayals - and it could take just one more to unravel it completely. I really enjoyed this book! _____________________________________ #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas #ReadWithMeemz #OwnVoices #WeNeedDiverseBooks #WeNeedDiverseAuthors #RepresentationMatters #IndigoEmployee #12DaysOfChristmas #Bookstagram #DiverseBookBlogger #QueerStories #lgbtq 🌈
Adam Silvera’s History is All You Left Me is a heart-wrenching, beautiful story of grief and heartbreak. It follows a young teenager coming-to-terms with the death of his ex-boyfriend, this beautiful YA novel explores big feelings of love, loss, and heartbreak. A box of Kleenex is a MUST. ____________________________________________________________ #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas #ReadWithMeemz #OwnVoices #WeNeedDiverseBooks #IndigoEmployee #WeNeedDiverseAuthors #RepresentationMatters #12DaysOfChristmas #Bookstagram #DiverseBookBlogger #QueerStories #lgbtq 🌈
Claire O’Dell’s A Study In Honor immediately popped into mind when I thought of my #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas listing of Queer Stories that Aren’t ‘coming out’ stories. This is a retelling of Sherlock Holmes, featuring two Black queer women as Sherlock and Dr. Watson. A fast-paced mystery, set in the near future, this was fun, engrossing, and hard to put down. You can probably read this in one sitting - and I definitely recommend it for anyone who loves a good mystery, or who’s looking to shake up their reading list. ____________________________________________________________ #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas #ReadWithMeemz #OwnVoices #WeNeedDiverseBooks #IndigoEmployee #WeNeedDiverseAuthors #RepresentationMatters #12DaysOfChristmas #Bookstagram #DiverseBookBlogger #QueerStories #lgbtq 🌈 #AStudyInHonor

Day 1 of the 3rd Annual #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas , and the category is “Historical fiction ft. People of Colour”. _________________________________________ Historical fiction has always been a favourite genre of mine - but growing up, I was so often struck by the fact that no one in the books I read looked like me. I’ve found that this trend comes up in movies as well, with so much erasure of people of colour - and their lived experiences - that it’s like they didn’t even exist back then! ___________________________________________ #12DaysOfDiverseChristmas #ReadWithMeemz #OwnVoices #WeNeedDiverseBooks #IndigoEmployee #WeNeedDiverseAuthors #RepresentationMatters #12DaysOfChristmas #Bookstagram #DiverseBookBlogger #DiverseHistoricalFiction

To reread, or not to reread? That is the question. When you get the sequel to a book you enjoyed, but don’t remember, do you take the time to reread the first, or just jump in and hope it comes back to you? #bookstagram #advancedrederscopy #indigoemployee

Stolen Songbird by @danielleljensen. I can’t believe I haven’t posted this one yet. My mom @liseannejanis and I listened to this on audiobook for the first time awhile back ago, on the way to Ottawa from where we lived, which was a 6 hour drive. I’m happily surprised that we found ourselves wanting to read it that night. •••••• The Stolen Songbird is about a young female by the name of Cecile, who gets kidnapped coming home from an opera lesson, and has to find a way to survive. •••••• I loved this series for many reasons why, the characters, the plot, the way magic was unfolded in the story. I also enjoyed the way @danielleljensen was able to bring our history into her own worlds story. •••••••• #booksofinstagram #indigoemployee #bookstagrammer #booksandcoffee #bookishphotography #bookishphotography #magicworld #magick #indigoemployee

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by @alexbracken. Have you ever wondered what would happen if a demon were to inhabit your mind and body? If so, look no further! I loved this read, it was so much fun. It was a by corny, a small bit of the humour I found was over done. I loved how @alexbracken wrote the history of the small town that Prosper lives in, and how she wrote up the characters. I loved the names she chose for the characters, and how each character was lovable in their own way, and yes, even Barnabas. #booksofinstagram #indigoemployee #bookstagrammer #booksandcoffee #indigo #indigobooks #bookish #book #booksphotography #bookishphotography

REVIEW: MOON OF CRUSTED SNOW by @waub || 5 ⭐️ || Right from the get-go this book had me hooked. The Anishinaabe community of the novel is full of a wide range of characters, both likeable and not, prepping for the coming winter when all of their utilities go out. No electricity, no satellite, no cell service. Having never had reliable services from the get go, no one thinks twice… until two of their own return from the city and tell them what’s really going on. On it’s own, the story is a terrifying concept alone, but the stakes are truly raised when an intimidating, survivalist, white man manages to make his way to the community and kicks them all when they’re down. Mixed into the everyday narrative are dream sequences and stories from the elders of the community that bring in warnings and foreshadowing from the tribe’s folklore adding an extra layer of intensity and knowledge.

CR: The Alice Network by Kate Quinn. Back to my WW1 & WW2 fiction. Loving this so far.

05.12.18 My Favorite Half-night Stand was yet another @christinalauren novel that I devoured in one sitting. I don’t often open a note on my phone immediately after finishing a book, but I had to make an exception this time. . I know I say this every time I gush over CLo, but honestly, no other authors give me the feelings that this duo does. There were so many points in this novel that I had to stop because the butterflies were just TOO MUCH. They write REAL characters: damaged, complicated, hilarious, and frustrating at times. . What a perfect ensemble of characters. It made me miss their Wild Seasons crew, but I truly truly hope this is not the last we visit them! . Thank You CLo! Millie and Reid were everything I needed. ❤️ . . #newadultreads #newadult #newadultbooks #newadultromance #bookstagram #bibliophile #books #bookish #bookaddict #bookworm #booklove #bookaholic #bookcommunity #bookblogger #booksofinstagram #bookishfeature #creativebookstagram #bookphotography #reading #readersofinstagram #bookishcanadians #indigoemployee @gallerybooks

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Being responsible for the hopes of an entire town is a heavy burden, and the semi-final match is the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through all of Beartown, leaving no resident unaffected.” I had a very difficult time rating this book. 4 or 5 stars, I kept going back and forth. There were times when the slow burn of the first half of the book left me impatient, but then I realized I was missing the point. I was being drawn into these lives, into this importance of hockey in a small town, into seemingly every day life to life of its residents so that when a violent act occurs I could truly understand the effect on every single resident. The writing was hands down some of the most beautiful writing I’ve read. Certain lines will just stamp themselves on your heart or punch you in the gut and stay with you long after you’ve turned the page. The reason I finally upped it to 5 stars was because I was thinking of this book long after I’d finished the last line. I encourage everyone to “slip into” this book. No expectations, not wanting to rush ahead. Just slip into Beartown. 📖 🇨🇦 📚 🍁 📖 🇨🇦 📚 🍁 📖 #bookaddict #bibliophile #indigoemployee #bookstagram #coffeeaddict #bookshelf #bookworm #bookchat #ireadeverywhere #booknerd #bookporn #coffeegram #booknerdigan #booksofig #avidreader #bookpost #bookishfeatures #bookishcanadians #bookobsessed #bookcommunity #allthebooks #instabook #bookstagrammer #igreads #booklife #beartown #bookreview #fiction @backmansk @chaptersindigo @simonandschuster

Picked up these two books at work today and I think they sort of go hand-in-hand. Five Feet Apart is about two teenagers struggling with their life-changing health conditions that force them to keep their distance. The movie comes out in 2019 (starring @colesprouse and directed by @justinbaldoni !!) and so I thought I’d read it before it does. This is also December’s Indigo Teen Pick of the Month!! The next book is a Gratitude Journal from @kikki.k — I can’t wait to start using it in the new year to remind myself to be appreciative of the little things in my everyday life. • Let’s start it off; what’s something YOU are grateful for today?

Isn’t this just the cutest family photo you’ve ever seen?!🎄
@taherehmafi ’s newest novel, A Very Large Expanse of Sea, follows a sixteen-year-old muslim girl names Shirin, living in the year 2002. 2002, the year after 9/11. Shirin is no stranger to the cruelty of people, as she faces degrogitory comments, physical violence and outright rude comments. Because of this, Shirin has built up a seemingly impenetrable wall around her. That way, no one can get close to her. That way, she can’t be hurt. After settling into her new school - as her family moves around frequently - Shirin meets a boy named Ocean, the first person who really wants to get to know her. This new friendship - or maybe it’s something more - scares Shirin, as she is not used to letting her guard down in fear of getting hurt, and she’s not sure if she can even let them down. . . . This story is heavily influenced by Mafi’s own life experiences. She said that this is the closest thing she’s written to an autobiographical novel, which makes me so angry at the world. I hate that Shirin was treated this way, and I hate the fact that Mafi was treated this way. I hate that Mafi was even able to write this, because it’s not fair. It’s absolutely heartbreaking, and I hope it’s a wakeup call to those who mistreat others who are just trying to live their own life authentically. This book is so real, and I hate that. They way Mafi writes Shirin’s inner dialogue and feelings expertly portrays how and why Shirin is so closed off. It is a survival mechanism, it the only way she can live her day to day life is to built up walls so thick, that Shirin fears she can never break them down to let someone in. This book gave me the same feelings I felt while reading The Hate U Give. A Very Large Expanse of Sea is a five-star book for me, and now one of my new favourites. Please, pick up this book. . . . #book #books #bookstagram #taherehmafi #averylargeexpanseofsea #ya #youngadult #indigoemployee
One of my top reads this year was DEFINITELY #Vicious by @veschwab. To the point where I already own two copies of both Vicious and #Vengeful (with a third of Vengeful on the way to match my UK edition of Vicious). Victor just stole my heart immediately with his snarky attitude and secret soft-in-the-middle side and definitely didn’t give it back. Being my first Schwab novel I can’t wait to get into the rest of her wonderful worlds! I may have come late to the party but having loved Vicious so dearly myself, I can’t imagine the “plot twist” for fans of its initial release getting the news of a sequel. 🔪 QOTD: How did you come across your favourite author? 🔪 🔪 🔪 #decbookstagram18 : Favourite Villain #bloodwitchbookstagram : Mindblowing Twist 🔪 🔪 🔪 #booklr #bookstagram #bookgram #bookstagrammer #bookgrammer #bookphotography #bookphoto #readersofinstagram #reviewersofinstagram #books #book #bibliophile #igreads #igbooks #booklover #indigoemployee #bookphotochallenge #photochallenge #bookchallenge #witchlanders #owlcrate

This was the first book that got me back into reading and inspired me to open up a book Instagram account. The Song of Achilles by @madeline.e.miller I loved how she never really added any hints on the relationship of Achilles and Patroclus, and how she wrote about Achilles character. I also love Patroclus, and the relationship he had with both his father and his mother, how different it was. It’s definitely a must read. I also wrote a college essay about this story in my mythology class, while everyone else was writing an essay based on a movie, I think it was either the 300 or the Immortals. #bookstagrammer #booksandcoffee #bookstagram #bookish #bibliophile #booksofinstagram #indigo #indigoemployee #nostalgia
Ruthie is over the moon that her mother has invited her to accompany her to a Mother/Daughter Dinner at the Cincinnati Women’s Club. She has dressed very carefully in her best dress and matching coat. Doesn’t she look elegant?! . . . Ruthie’s dress pattern is by Bunnybear on Etsy and her coat pattern is @dollhousedesigns. Both are 1930s inspired. The coat is supposed to be double breasted, but I forgot to make allowances for Ruthie’s slightly larger chest and waist measurements (she’s my chubster) so it wound up single breasted.
