Ever since I finished “Furyborn” I’ve been kind of on the look out for a dual perspective book to come along with a similar time line. I enjoyed following Rielle and Eliana who were 1000 years apart. I was pretty pleased to find that “The Map of Salt and Stars” follows a similar pattern by following a modern day Syrian refugee and a medieval apprentice mapmaker who are 800 years apart. (double bonus that it’s about map makers. I love maps and have always thought it would be rad to be a map maker.) . I’m trying my hardest to stick to my June TBR, so when this review copy arrived from @touchstonebooks last week I decided to save it for July (unless of course my mood feels like it in June… haha.) . Instead of following the refugee experience here in the states, this situation is flipped, where Nour and her family move from New York to Syria after their father dies. The second perspective apparently includes fantasy elements, which I’m very excited about, since that’s my first love. I have been hearing so many good things about the details and descriptions and the story, so I’m really looking forward to diving into this. I’m also grateful for these reminders that the refugee crisis is something I should not forget and it’s still happening around the world. Be on the look out for a review from me on this one in the coming weeks. . How is your June TBR coming along? Have you read anything you recommend? What are you reading now? HAPPY FRIDAY, everyone! . #themapofsaltandstars #jenniferzeynabjoukhadar #syria #bookflatlay #flatlay #amreading #TBR #bibliophile #maps #mapmaker
