The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind Creating Currents of Electricity and Hope by William Kamkwamba The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind: Creating Currents of Electricity and Hope by William Kamkwamba

An inspirational autobiography, that also allows the reader to catch a glimpse of life in Malawi. Highly recommended.

Wunderbare Reise des kleinen Nils Holgersson mit den Wildgänsen. by Selma Lagerlöf Wunderbare Reise des kleinen Nils Holgersson mit den Wildgänsen. by Selma Lagerlöf

This was one of my favourite books as a child, and it is still quite an enchanting read. Though this time around I could appreciate the descriptions of Sweden a lot more than the first time I read it, when I mostly cared about the Nils' adventures. :D

Death in St. Petersburg (Lady Emily, #12) by Tasha Alexander Death in St. Petersburg by Tasha Alexander

Historical mystery, set at the end of the 19th/beginning of the 20th century. Very interesting peek into Russia a few years before the revolution. I'll definitely check out more books by this author.
