Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back! If you haven’t read my previous blog post Reading in the Time of Corona – you can click on the link and have a read. Basically I muse what kind of texts (books, audiobooks, comics, manga, magazines) one should look for and what to avoid like the plague. 😀 This is the continuation of that text in which I’m going to give a few lots and lots reading recommendations. Apparently. 😀

Hello dear reader(s) and welcome to another instalment of Nessa reads books and writes reviews (NRBWR). I recently wrote a warm-up post for Dewey’s readathon about globetrotting around the world with crime novels. In the post I wrote about the importance of locations to crime novels, stating that a location is an important character in the book. It affects everyone and everything and you can learn a lot about a location by reading crime novels. Since I started the Makana series during the readathon, in today’s review I’m taking you, dear reader(s), to the Middle East. Or to be more precise to Egypt’s capital city – Cairo.
