Book Blogger Hop – Do you read books from outside your country?

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.

The question this week is:
Do you read books by authors from outside your country?Any book recommendations? Also, if you’re not from the US/UK, could you name one author/book from your country? (submitted by Kristin @ Lukten av Trykksverte)

I often read authors who are from different parts of the world. Nordic Noir is one of my favourite crime genres. Last year I read my first book by a South Korean author, The Plotters. I think it has only been more recently, in the last five years when I have read more translated fiction though.

How often do you read books outside of your country?

  1. I often read books based outside of the UK. I try and read a variety and I had set myself the challenge of reading a book set in every country in the world, though that has fallen by the wayside lately…

  2. As I’m originally from The Netherlands, currently live in Argentina and almost exclusively read English books, about 99% of the books are from outside my country haha. I do love discovering books from non UK/US authors and try to read not only nordic noir titles but also other translated fiction whenever I have the chance. xx
