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.

New in My Collections (2)

Few months ago I wrote about the books and films that I bought and added to my collections. I got some more books (and a comic) from that time, most bought, but one won.

The books will be ordered by genre: comics, history books and biographies. Most of them are written by ladies, except the comic book and the diary.
