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.

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 November (hopefully a birthday gift 🙂 ):
