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.

A to Z April 2015

Welcome to the next month of A to Z reading challenge. We read books written by authors coming from the countries named on a certain letter (in their official languages).

Letters for April: H and I and you should read a book (comic, volume of poetry) by an author from one of the following countries:

  • South Korea
  • Armenia
  • Croatia
  • Indonesia
  • Iran
  • Iceland

Try reading outside of your own country, if possible.

The only Indonesian books/comics I reviewed on blog were in Indonesian language. I had reviewed South Korean comics and books in English language, you can see them on my blog. I have a book by Icelandic crime writer Yrsa Sigurdardottir, but I haven’t read her book yet. She’s translated into English.

What will you read? Can you recommend any writers?

She came to find a certain vocalist who “moved” her. That guy happened to change into an animal. His heart broke when the girl he likes fell in love with another guy. So now, he is a target of both Incinerator and a greedy guy who wants to sell his liver.
