  1. If you like Purple Hibiscus you should also read Half of a Yellow Sun by Aidichie. It's just great. I also thoroughly enjoyed Paradise. I like your list. Good luck.

  2. Crime and Punishment! I really need to read that one, soon. I've owned it for, I don't know, 10 years? Eesh. I think The Brothers Karamazov is going to be my big Russian book of the year, though. (I try to do one a year - Anna Karenina a few years ago, then War and Peace, then The Idiot, etc.). Good luck with the challenge - glad you're joining us! Can't wait to see what you think of all these. :)
