Jasmine and Fire: A Bittersweet Year in Beirut - Salma Abdelnour Wellllll. I muddled through this book, and it took me almost a month to read after receiving it from Goodreads Giveaways. It wasn't a terrible book, but it certainly wasn't a good book.

I enjoyed it for the first quarter of the book. Salma is trying to discover what it means to be at home, by living in Beirut for a year (where she was born), after growing up in the States for most of her life. She balances her personal feelings, family, tourism, relationships, friendships, albeit perhaps not well.

And then it got old. There's no real reason that I can put my finger on, but I got so sick of her. She just started to rub me the wrong way.
