European Reading Challenge, 2019
I've decided to join this very cool challenge that encourages us to read books by European authors or set in European countries. I love the idea of reading around as much of Europe as possible. Armchair tourism is the next best thing to flying to the destinations, and I'm confident I can tick off at least five titles just by tapping into my current to-be-read list, even though no country double-ups are allowed.
This challenge is hosted by Rose City Reader, and here are the rules. We have until the end of January 2020 to complete it, which I appreciate being a little late on board. Check it out and consider joining us.
Now for my choices.
Italy - My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante
France - Little by Edward Carey
Russia - War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
Netherlands - The Black Tulip by Alexandre Dumas
United Kingdom - Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens
Belgium - Villette or The Professor by Charlotte Bronte
Sweden - (Something by Astrid Lindgren)
Germany - Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
Finland - The Summer Book by Tove Janssen
Denmark - Babette's Feast by Isak Dinesen
Keep an eye on this list, as it'll no doubt be in flux, and hopefully even grow.
