Reading Around the World Challenge – update

Going away for the weekend has thrown out my blogging schedule (like I had one of those anyway!) But I did want to give you a quick update on my prep for my Reading Around the World Challenge.

It’s a bit of slow going to be honest. You can check out my progress on this page here which is where I’m making a living list of the books I have planned for each country. One of the biggest challenges I’m facing is picking just one. So I may not and may read multiple books for some countries where I can’t make a decision. I also have an ever evolving list on Goodreads (you can find me here )which I have more flexibility to update. I think I have books for about 20 countries now (just 176 more to go).

Which is where you come in, dear reader! I would love to know what books or authors you would recommend from your part of the world (must have been translated into English please!)

Who and what do you think I should be reading for my Around the World Challenge?


  1. Ohhh this is the reading challenge you talked about earlier! So exciting ❤ well you've known about 'Pulang' and already planned to put it on your list 😉 but just in case you want another recommendation from Indonesia, here yu go!

    Negeri 5 Menara (The Land of Five Towers) by Anwar Fuadi
