Hi everyone! Today we are starting on Week 3 of our Reading Challenge Month! Woo hoo! It is International Week, and we will be reading and reviewing books set in countries other than our own.

This week is sponsored by the folks here at Joyfully Jay. We are giving away a selection of some of our favorite international books. Don’t forget, you can enter to win this week’s prize by commenting on our challenge reviews this week or reading along with your own international book and writing a mini review on Friday (check out all the rules and details on the kick off post). If you need some help finding books, check out our Reader Favorite International Books List! We created this when we did this challenge a few years back and it includes tons of reader suggestions for books set all over the world!

Here is what we are reviewing this week for the challenge:


  • Burning Fall by E.J. Smyth (Germany)
  • Meet Me in Shanghai by Luca Domani (China)


  • Latakia by J.F. Smith (Syria)

This week is sponsored by the folks right here at Joyfully Jay! I thought it would be fun to give away a prize pack of some of our favorite and best reviewed International Books. I tried to pick a range from all over the world, so hope you guys enjoy!
