Welcome Expats!

When I moved abroad one of the things I missed most was the chance to talk about books with people. None of my co-workers are native English speakers. We can communicate, but we don't usually read the same things. I started my blog so I could connect with people over books no matter where they are in the world.


Do you have an expat book blog? Please comment with:


Your name and blog link


Where you live


Where you came from


What do you blog about? Do you have separate book and expat blogs?


I'm looking forward to reading and following your blogs! If you have time, I blog at A Kindle in Hong Kong.

The Adventures of JoJo Smith is an interesting tale of a 'very' English Englishman who suddenly finds himself transported back into the middle ages. The writing is very descriptive and the story unusual enough to keep you turning the pages. I also found several of the characters to be quite endearing, a good read.

Hola, I am a British expat living in Guatemala, C.A. for around 18 years. My job titles have ranged for dishwasher to English teacher. Since I've lived here I have written six novels, only one of which has been published. The Adventures of Jojo Smith  It was written as a quick and  easy read for an audience that likes fantasy, but don't take it too seriously. I would welcome any contact from reviewers or bloggers in the expat community.

Hi, my name is Sadie. I am an American living just north of Manchester, England. I don't write an expat blog, though I do make the occasional cultural observation on my blog It is brand spankin new, but will be half personal musings and half book reviews. Would love to trade a follow or two. 

BTW, Olga, I live in the UK now, but I am originally from middle TN - not too far from Chattanooga really. I have lived in Nashville, Murfreesboro, Huntland and Alto (very small town). I miss hearing people say Ya'll and being called darlin' by strangers.

When failed fairy spells and crazy adventures combine, you get Gail Carson Levine's Newbery honor book "Ella Enchanted" - the book is distinct from the movie as you can see in our review. Check out how willfulness and character can effectively break a spell more than a Prince's Kiss could. For our fractured fairy tale theme in GatheringBooks until end of August.

It's always our privilege to share the thoughts of young people over at GatheringBooks. For August we have the lovely Nurul Iiman Bte Said, a secondary student from Hougang Secondary School in Singapore - review the book "Mighty Men" as written by Low Jat Leng.

Hi! My name is Olga. I'm originally from Ukraine but now live in Chattanooga, TN, USA. I tried to do a personal blog in the past but it didn't really work out as intended - all I ever wanted to talk about was books so Bibliophile's Corner was born. Stop by for a visit!
