Fantastic World Stories

I have decided to make my own project for reading books from each country.

It won’t be a book, but a story, which means a legend, comic etc. The stories must have fantastical element to it, like magic, paranormal creatures, sf elements etc. And moreover, the stories must be newly read.

The countries list is a modified UN country list, including Palestine, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Kosovo. In total 196 countries/regions.

Do you have any suggestions?

Worldly Literature in 2015: summary so far

Here will be a summary of books (sorted by author’s countries) that I read so far in 2015 and some that I have in my current pile. Feel free to comment, if you have some suggestions for books for me.

I have made two challenges: one is more Poland oriented (but nobody said you can’t read books/comics from other countries), one is about reading literature from across the world (Around the World: A to Z 2015).

I only read 19 books so far this year, so far (not counting comics) from 9 countries. Six more countries on my list. I owned only 2 books (e-books), the rest was borrowed from libraries. Continue reading to see the list and my short opinion on each book.
