German Literature Month X

Welcome to November and the start of German Literature Month. This reading event hosted by Lizzy and Caroline is now in it’s 10th year. That’s so wonderful isn’t it? I haven’t been able to join in every year but this year I really couldn’t miss it. I already had to miss my annual trip to Germany, at least I can travel via books.

There are different ways to participate and the last week there will be a read along. Of course you can read as you like too of course.

I will warn you, I may be posting more pictures from my travels through Germany so I hope you don’t mind.

As far as the books are concerned, I do have some authors I would like to discover like Gunter Grass, Herman Hesse, and Christa Wolf. I don’t have a lot of books on my shelf by German authors to choose from so this may be a good opportunity to do a bit of book shopping. Anything to add new books right? Ha.

Lizzy and Caroline have some great suggestions if you need don’t know where to start. I have also found this interesting list of 100 German Must Reads. I’ve only read three of those books. If you are more into thrillers, here is a list of Top Five German Thrillers.

I’m going to go through my shelves and see what I can find for this challenge. Let me know if you are joining in or if you have some authors/books to recommend. And, most of all, have a great reading month!
