A to Z Blog Challenge 2018 – Letter U

Welcome to the 2018 edition of the A to Z Blogging Challenge!

All through the month of April, the challenge asks us to blog every day (except Sundays), and to go through the alphabet A to Z, connecting our posts to the letter of each day.

My idea for this time, my 5th to participate, is to showcase a book or two each day, and provide a tiny bit of information about them. These will not be a full book review, but just saying what it is about, and if I liked the book or not.

These books are mostly books that I already have on my shelves, and have read, or are on my to be read stacks. There will be a very few of them that I don’t already own, or have read.

I will also post a quote each day that has something to say about books, or reading.

Hope you enjoy, and maybe see a book or a few that you might want to read, too.

“Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven”, by Susan Jane Gilman, is the author’s memoir of her and a friend’s journey into China. Their goal was to backpack around the world, but after their harrowing experiences in China, they were lucky to come back alive. This was in 1986, and they found themselves under government surveillance immediately. Detailing their encounters with complete culture shock, she tells all, with humor, yet what they survived were anything but humorous, as they both begin breaking down from mental and physical stress.

“Urban Legends”, by Richard Roeper, takes a look at many of the strange stories and myths that we hear. Are they true? Outrageous rumors get passed from person to person, and no one really knows how they get started. This book tries to debunk the thought they they are real.

“The Undomestic Goddess”, by Sophie Kinsella, is another fun book to read. It is a stand alone book, with a completely new character (not from the Shopaholic series), about a lady that mistakenly ends up being a house keeper. Being a career lawyer, she knows nothing of domestic duties, but she does her best to cope.

This is a really funny book, along the lines of another fish out of water story.
