Asian Literature Addiction

After reading both of Khaled Hosseini's amazing books - The Kite Runner & A Splendid Thousand Suns, I am addicted to Asian Literature books now. Below are what I managed to get my hands on.

I read Anchee Min's Empress Orchid.
I read Adeline Yen Mah's Falling Leaves.
I read Jung C'hang's Wild Swans.
I read Lisa See's Snow Flower and the Secret Fan.

I read all of these books in less than a month's time. See, I told you I am addicted.

I'm currently reading Lisa See's Peony In Love.
And I have a few more books waiting. I'm so happy.

Mindy said...

I'll try my best-est of my best-est to remember to bring Eat Pray Love for you (that is if I still have it, I've lent it to a few ppl). If you remember, can you sms me to remind me on Saturday before dinner? You know how forgetful I am. Even after you sms, I still can forget :P

I like Jodi Picoult's books as well. I read My Sister's Keeper and Keeping Faith. Loved both of them. I'll bring you one her books for you. See whether you'll like it.

Remember to bring any book for me ya. I'll trust your recommendation. :D
