Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I've awarded you The Versatile Blogger award on my blog here. :)

Mari said...

Just a quick note to say I'm going to read along with you but I haven't selected a book yet. I read I am Nujood and The Space Bewteen Us in July. I read these just before finding your challenge. HA

Have a great weekend!

Helen's Book Blog said...

Becky--Thank you so much!

Mari--I am not super strict about this, so I say post the reviews for both of those books you read in July. I'd just love people to see reviews of Middle East books!

Connolly-Ahern said...

I found this challenge a bit late, but I love the idea and can't wait to participate. I do have a question -- do the books have to take place wholly in the Middle East. The Night Counter is on my TBR pile -- the review says it takes place both in Lebanon and the United States. Can I include it in this challenge? Thanks for hosting this!

Helen's Book Blog said...

Connolly-Ahern--Thank you for joining us! Sure, count The Night Counter since it takes place in Lebanon as well. Looking forward to your review!

Helen - my last link is actually to three different novellas but only the first one is named. I tried to put all three in separately but because I reviewed t hem in a single post, it won't let me.

Amanda said...

The linky appears to have disappeared? I guess I'll leave a link to my newest review in the comments... Mondays in the Middle East by David Cross: http://zenleaf.amandagignac.com/2011/01/mondays-in-the-middle-east-by-david-cross.html

ps - thanks for the suggestion!

Amanda--when I look the Linky is there... I'll email you to see if you can see it yet

JoV said...

Sorry about posting it the wrong way round i.e. Book title first, then blog name.

This is a Cool challenge! I have a few more on ME theme books to read. thanks for hosting this!

JoV said...

JoV said...

Posted one on Israel. When I lived through Modern Times by Linda Grant, a orange prize winner 2000. Hope this is ok. :)
