Reading diversely

I realized recently that I have mostly read authors from US or UK and have not read many other foreign authors. This year I want to make a conscious effort to read diversely. I collected few books which are either written by an author belonging to other countries or based in other countries. I would love to learn more about other countries and I feel I have read enough books describing London or New York. Even in the movies, we mostly see these two cities.
These are some books that I am planning to read just to add diversity to my reading. Please let me know if you have read any of these. Also recommend me any books that are based in a different country or is written by a foreign author.

Books based in Arizona

The last post on my blog was inspired by my current read – Walk on Earth a stranger. This post is inspired by my most recently bought book – Vengeance Road. Only when I bought that book did I realize that I have not read a single book based in Arizona (in US). I lived in Arizona for couple of years and loved that place. Other than the weather, it is probably the best place in US I have lived in. The people there are so sweet and polite. I want to actively read more fiction or non-fiction based in Arizona. Please do recommend any book that you have read about Arizona.
Here is the list that I collected few days back with some books that I am interested in reading –

I have been in search of books that are based on gold rush and finally I found a few which I want to read soon.
Here is the list –

Mid year freak out book tag

I have read 32 books (9202 pages) so far this year. I have crossed my yearly goal of atleast reading 25-30 books this year.

  1. Best book you have read so far in 2016 – Vicious by V.E. Schwab. It is one of the best books I have ever read so it is the best I have read this year, if we don’t count rereads. If we do count rereads, then it will be The Lord of the Rings which I reread this year. vicious1
