Bingo! Miss Burma by Charmaine Craig

It’s bingo Saturday once again – that rolled around fast! The square I’ve filled for this entry is:

 

A Book with Themes of Culture

 

As soon as I read Miss Burma by Charmaine Craig, I knew this was going to be my next bingo title. This novel follows one prominent Burmese family struggling to overcome war and political repression while trying to build a meaningful life. Miss Burma is a novel that will stay with me (you can read my review here).

A truly mesmerising and terribly beautiful account of a history I have until now not been aware of.

This year I’m playing book bingo with Mrs B’s Book Reviews. On the first and third Saturday of each month, we’ll post our latest entry. We’re not telling each other in advance what we’re currently reading or what square we’ll be filling next; any coincidences are exactly that – and just add to the fun!

Follow our card below if you’d like to join in, and please let us know if you do so we can check out what you’re reading.

Now I’m off to check out what square Mrs B has marked off for this round. See you over there!

  1. #Book Bingo 2018: ‘A book with a number in the title’ – The Fifth Letter by Nicola Moriarty

    Until I went through my list of read books I almost forgot I had read a Nicola Moriarty novel, it was quite a while ago, yet, reading the title of the book ‘Free-falling’ I’m reminded how much I enjoyed it and can still remember parts of the book. The Fifth Letter was equally enjoyable.

    This book centres around four friends, Eden, Joni, Trina and Deb, though the story is narrated by Joni. The group of friends have been together since school and now as adults they do their best to meet up every year for a girls mini getaway. Secrets are revealed through nameless letters written by each friend. Each night one person chooses a letter to read out to the group.

    Unusual, intriguing and a catchy storyline that hooks you right in. Plenty of twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end.

    My favourite part for some reason which I can’t explain is when Joni was confessing to the priest. I thought that was cleverly done and added another layer to the story. The mystery and the drama regarding the letters kept me enthralled.

    Personally, I truly loved this book and am a teeny weenie bit excited to read another of Nicola Moriarty’s books.
