This was... weird. I'd say it was more magical realism than a mystery, but it is certainly mysterious.

3.5 🌟 as I enjoyed what I read, but am unsure WHAT I read!

Librarybelle Interesting…I‘m only familiar with his Wallander series! 1mo
jenniferw88 @Librarybelle I enjoy his Wallander series so as soon as I saw this book for Mozambique I knew I would be reading it - he's an auto-buy author for me. 1mo

Rima discovers her husband has another woman in his life, including children. Then she discovers another and another. Eventually, the women come together to confront Tony in this novel of patriarchy and feminism, #Mozambique style. I really enjoyed this one.

The Silmarillion | J.R.R. Tolkien

Plans for February:

#bookspin and #doublespin are The Silmarillion (one of my old favourites) and Samarcanda (new author!)

Using #roll100 to get through my ebooks. This month I'm reading Sligtly Scandalous by Mary Balogh.

Nigh Circus came from the library.

For #ReadingAfrica2022, I'm currently reading O Alegre Canto da Perdiz by Paulina Chiziane #Mozambique (doesn't seem to have an english translation).

I‘m honestly not sure what to think about this book. It‘s the non-fiction account from when Alexandra visited her parents in Zambia and met K, the troubled African soldier. Parts of this book were poignant, parts were delightfully daffy, parts were gruesome, and other parts just went on forever. I keep switching between pick and so-so. I think I‘ll leave it at pick because I‘m not sorry I read it, but I wouldn‘t recommend it. #FoodAndLit

Bookwormjillk This was book 4/5 for #OutstandingOctober @Andrew65 and also a spot on my #BookspinBingo board @TheAromaofBooks 8mo

How you see a country depends on whether or not you can leave it, if you have to.

Catsandbooks Pretty kitty! How was the book? 8mo
Bookwormjillk @Catsandbooks I‘m about 2/3 done. Some of it is difficult to read, but overall it‘s better than I thought it would be. 8mo
Catsandbooks @Bookwormjillk well that's good to hear! 8mo

Damien Brown, an Australian doctor, suceeds in depicting the day-to-day experience of a doctor working for the MSF (Doctors without borders) in places where poverty, conflict, tragedy are prevalent and a fact of life. He worked in Mavinga in Angola, dubbed as the "edge of the world" and in South Sudan where tribal or clan wars were the norms. He navigated cultural differences both in health care and personal upbringing. ?

thevagabondlawyer He also was caught in local conflict during his stay in South Sudan that experiencing it first hand, his life at stake, was both surreal and frightening. A beautiful, touching but also disturbing and heartbreaking story, Band-Aid for a Broken Leg is not to be missed. 👊👏 12mo
Ruthiella Sounds like an intense read! 12mo
