German lit

I love the English language and its literature but as a consequence I´ve neglected German literature. Somehow everything sounds much more beautiful in English and German literature is often very grave and super intellectual. But now I´ve promised myself to read more German literature and I´ve had to do some research to find books worthy of this goal 🙂

This month I´ve read Walter Moers´ City of dreaming books, which is of course a book for book lovers and those who like books about books. It´s also a fantasy book, sometimes bizarre but mostly funny and interesting and an adventure, as long as one gives it a chance.

For next month I´ve decided on A Night train to Lisbon by Pascal Mercier which has gotten quite the reviews and it sounds like an interesting read.

For October:


For November (hopefully a birthday gift 🙂 ):

Although the German edition is much prettier!

And last but not least:

Helden des Alltags.
