If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a big, big fan of multicultural fiction. Not only do I get to learn about new cultures, civilizations, but I get to ‘travel’ to new places. Very cool.
I tend to be bias to Asian fiction, but you can’t blame me after living in Asia for 10 years! I was thinking about some of my favorites, while at the same time looking for new stuff that you might have found. So here’s a quick list of good reads, but please add others that you know of in the comments section. I’m always on the hunt for book recommendations!
Here’s some of my top reads that I’ve taken some liberty categorizing.
Adventure Focused Historicals
Modern Day Fiction
Note: The first two pictures were taken in Kyoto, Japan and the last three were taken in China. And I’d like to add, don’t be fooled by the impression of peace and tranquility you might feel at looking at the pictures of the Golden Pagoda.
My two boys were very, VERY busy creating havoc by climbing rocks and throwing pebbles into the pond, disrupting the perfect reflection. So while most remember this beautiful setting with serenity, I only remember chasing two little boys and repeatedly apologizing to tourists.
