#GetMovin #Sandstorm
I got a bit stuck on this prompt but I thought of these two books with characters who have spent time in Syria & the Middle East-likely places for sandstorms. In the first book it's a war correspondent involved in a traumatic event there & the tagged book has a Syrian national, living in the U.S. who goes back to Syria to see his dying father & is detained & put in the army, gets 'traded' & eventually ends up in Guantanamo.

Cinfhen Oh wow! I think they both sound fascinating 2y

The 2nd book in the Songs Of The Shattered Sands series. Not all fantasy novels have great lakes, forests and mountains and these books are a fantastic read if you're looking for a more exotic locale.

Cinfhen Does sound intriguing 🌵🗡 2y

jfalkens @GrilledCheeseSamurai thank you! It looks very interesting! 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai @jfalkens I haven't read the 3rd book yet (it's out now) But I've enjoyed the series so far. Apparently the author is planning more books in this world that he has created. 2y
jfalkens @GrilledCheeseSamurai more books in a good series is always good 🤓 2y

#sandstorm #GetMovin
Cos she's on a beach, and her life's been quite stormy.....cut me some slack, I travelled to Northampton to watch Oldham get relegated yesterday and drank twice my own body weight in wine and vodka to drown my considerable sorrows and I didn't get up til 6pm and I'm in the pub retoxing. @Cinfhen @eanderson

The aviator crashes in a #sandstorm in the Sahara where he is introduced to the world of le petit prince. I adored this when we read it in French class and have returned to it many times. #male #litsyclassics #getmovin

Exit West: A Novel | Mohsin Hamid

All three of these books are set in, what I imagine to be, desert landscapes, which I think must mean the citizens get hit by a #sandstorm at times.

I don‘t know, I‘m grasping at straws here 🤷‍♀️😅

Cathythoughts I loved Exit West. 👍🏻 2y

George Lucas: A Life | Brian Jay Jones

#GetMovin #day6 #Sandstorm I‘m a huge Star Wars fan, I really need to add to my props but they‘re so expensive when TM! In this biography of Lucas, they talk about how a huge sandstorm ruined props from The Phantom Menace & how their filming of the desert scenes of Tatooine were destroyed by a freak rainstorm. In a desert. I have no idea how he managed to get through these movies without having a heart attack honestly!

MommyOfTwo Hmm this one could be good 2y
Cinfhen Cool stuff!! Thanks for sharing 😀 2y

I picked this book to grab Oman on an around world challenge and really enjoyed it as a young woman goes to Oman in 1950's to revisit the life of a pioneering woman explorer who had been first person to cross the Sahara desert. Lots of passion and sandstorms and a really good read.

Cinfhen Sounds interesting! 2y

Have not read it, but this seems a strange novel, about a man imprisoned in a pit of sand, after he accepted the villagers‘ hospitality to stay overnight in their village. The book was adapted for a Cannes festival award-winning film in 1964.

Billypar Perfect choice for the prompt! I read it this year...I usually like the strange but I wasn't a fan of this one- just wasn't for me. 2y
EKonrad This one is really interesting...such a creative and eerie premise. 👍🏼 2y
erzascarletbookgasm @Billypar @EKonrad I‘ve read both your reviews. Interesting thoughts. This book sounds a bit Kafkaesque to me. Or is it a clever satire? 🤷‍♀️ 2y
EKonrad I would definitely say Kafkaesque. Didn‘t get a satire feel from it, but maybe that‘s just me. 2y
Billypar @erzascarletbookgasm Yeah, I'd say Kafkaesque is a better description than satire. It seemed to me more about the ridiculous aspects of domestic life or government, but not specific or realistic enough to be satire. 2y
