What I love most about making these lists is how sometimes you'll get a ton of stuff that's clearly very related to the title you started out with, and other times (like this time) it's a completely random assortment. I've not read any of these, although I did read and adore Xinran's The Good Women of China, so I'm hopeful for the other titles by her appearing on this list. The last title also looks really intriguing to me.
Have you read any of these books?
