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 –
Vengeance road by Erin Bowman –
This is a vengeance story as I mentioned in my previous post. It is a typical wild west story with American Indians and lot of action. I am very eager to read this book. This is about a girl who is trying to avenge her father’s murder.
These Is My Words: The Diary of Sarah Agnes Prine, 1881-1901 (Sarah Agnes Prine #1) by Nancy E. Turner –
This is a memoir written by a woman growing up in the Arizona in the late 1800s which is supposed to be in the form of diary entries. I am sure this book will give us a lot of history about the struggles that people faced during that time period. I love reading history so I am sure I will love this book.
The Devil’s Highway: A True Story by Luis Alberto Urrea –
This is a book about how mexicans are smuggled into US through Arizona border it seems. This is a non-fiction about a group of men who attempted to cross the Mexican border into the desert of southern Arizona, through the “Devil’s Highway.”
In the heart of the canyon by Elisabeth Hyde –
It seems this is a novel about a rafting trip through the Grand Canyon “that changes the lives of everyone on board”. Supposed to be a thriller, adventure kind of story so I am interested in it. Also I love Grand Canyon and I think it is the most beautiful natural wonder in the world.
Almanac of the Dead by Leslie Marmon Silko –
This is about a book called the Almanac of the Dead probably written by Mayans (I could be wrong) and it sounds like a historical fiction-fantasy kind of book. One of the reviews mentioned this book as Games of Thrones meets Breaking Bad. Need to check this book.
Blood and thunder: an epic of the American west by Hampton Sides –
This is a proper history book of how the American west was won. I am sure it will be a harrowing account of all the wars that were fought. I heard this book reads like a fiction. This book is on the top of my list of books to buy soon.
