Let's Travel to CHINA!!


Welcome to February and the month we are all going to be traveling to CHINA right here at Book Bloggers International! 

In honor of our month of traveling, I will personally be reading CHINA DOLLS by Lisa See.  At the end of the month, I will share a discussion post for anyone else willing to participate.  See is one of my own personal favorite authors, and many know her for her novel, SNOW FLOWER AND THE SECRET FAN.  She was one who taught me that reading can really be for more than entertainment.  I could learn about history and the world, all from the comfort of my own home.  I think I "got this" from earlier books that I read, but it was See that cemented it for me.  I look forward to reading this novel, or rather listening to it because I currently have it checked out on audio.  Here's a quick peek for CHINA DOLLS courtesy of Goodreads . . . 
In 1938, Ruby, Helen and Grace, three girls from very different backgrounds, find themselves competing at the same audition for showgirl roles at San Francisco's exclusive "Oriental" nightclub, the Forbidden City. Grace, an American-born Chinese girl has fled the Midwest and an abusive father. Helen is from a Chinese family who have deep roots in San Francisco's Chinatown. And, as both her friends know, Ruby is Japanese passing as Chinese. At times their differences are pronounced, but the girls grow to depend on one another in order to fulfill their individual dreams. Then, everything changes in a heartbeat with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Suddenly the government is sending innocent Japanese to internment camps under suspicion, and Ruby is one of them. But which of her friends betrayed her?

I will also be sharing some guest articles from bloggers around the world, connecting books and China in some way.  Guest spots are still available.  If you are interested in contributing, email Tif at bookbloggersintl (at) gmail (dot) com. 

Let's pack our bags, grab our books, and get ready to travel to China!

  1. I agree that a second pair of eyes is absolutely essential to avoid rejections. Through WordsRU.com I was able to get top class editing and proofreading, manuscript critique. They also write excellent author profiles and book synopsis, so pretty much the entire package.

  2. Learning to proofread your work yourself is a must-have skill. But, it always helps to have a second pair of eyes review your work to make sure you haven't missed embarassing typos, or grammatical and syntactical errors. I'd suggest WordsRU.com for this. It also saves you a lot of time to have your work formatted according to the right style. Saves you a lot of time and allows you to focus on your work.

  3. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the Vampires Lord on his Email: Richvampirekindom@gmail.com
