Books by country

This list is not yet completed and contains all the recommendations that I’ve had or books that I was planning to read for a long time. My plan is to choose one book from each country. Country names will be linked to the reviews of the books that I’ve read. So if you’re onto some really good book at the moment I’m waiting for your suggestion. It doesn’t even have to be the book that you’re reading right now, but a book that you’ve read at one point in your life and got stuck on you. A classical or modern. Poetry. Essay. Memoirs. Fairy tales. A travel guide. Words. Folk stories. It doesn’t matter. Any good book that can be considered as part of some country’s literature.
