TOP 5:
TRANSLATED BOOKS I WANT TO READ

As one of my goals this year is to read more translated books, here are five that have struck my interest.

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami


In an effort to read something from the highly acclaimed Murakami, I got this book. This is a magical realism book where a man, in search of his wife's cat, stumbles into a strange world.

The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov


This is satire written during the darkest period of the Stalin regime, which sounds interesting enough in itself. Also, this cover is insane.

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy


The most terrifying book on this list, I really do want to read this, but the sheer size of it freaks me out. 

Love In the Time of Cholera by Gabirel García Márquez


This is a magical realism book about unrequited love. I have still to read anything from Márquez, so I need to get on that.

Perfume by Patrick Suskind


The book I keep putting on my lists of books I need to read, but never seem to get around to. Still though, need to read this SOON.


Do you have any recommendations for translated books one should read?

  1. Hi! Just know I love your blog, especially to discover some new titles.
    About translated books, I recommend you "The Count of Monte Cristo (A. Dumas), In Search of Lost Time saga (Marcel Proust) Albert Camus' books, Notes from Underground (Dostoïevsky), Einstein's Enigma (José Rodriguez do Santos)... and I'm gonna stop now cause I could continue for a long time :P
    Good continuation!
