Top Ten Books I Recently Added to My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.

My TBR is evergrowing and I hardly ever keep track of it except for occassionally adding them to my goodreads. So for this list, I decided to just share with you the latest 10 books that have been added to my goodreads to-read shelf. Obviously, this changes quite often so it may not be entirely up to date between the time of me writing this and when it actually goes up. Anyway, I should stop rambling and making no sense and just get straight on it.

Blurb:
A beautiful love story and contemporary fairytale set against the backdrop of the Iraq war, this stunning and moving novel will break your heart, only to put it back together again…

This is the story of Lina, a teenage girl from Baghdad. It starts in 2003, as the bombs begin to fall on the city.

In it, Lina fights to survive, to find a life for herself amid the chaos of war, to find what happened to her mother in the years before the war, when she was taken away by the secret police. She also falls in love, with the one person she should never have fallen in love with.

It is many things. It is a love story, both for a country and for a person. It is about an amazing girl, growing up in the worst circumstances imaginable. It contains a necklace, that was lost but might still be found. And that is all we can say, without ruining this extraordinary and beautiful modern fairy tale…
