July 2019: Book of the Month

Oh, July, where did you go? With a lot of real-life things going on, I barely noticed that the end of the month was approaching again, but here we are already in August!

  1. The Nowhere Child // Christian White
  2. Der Gärtner war’s nicht // Tatjana Kruse
  3. Rückwärtswalzer // Vea Kaiser
  4. Die letzten Kinder von Schewenborn // Gudrun Pausewang
  5. The Woman in White // Wilkie Collins
  6. Ali und Nino // Kurban Said
Rückwärtswalzer // Vea Kaiser

This month, 4 out of the 6 books I read were in German; I read 3 male and 3 female authors, and books from 5 different countries. My favourite one of those? Rückwärtswalzer by Vea Kaiser! It gave me all the feelies, had a compelling story and lovable characters that I didn’t want to leave behind at the end of the book.

I also really enjoyed Ali und Nino and Der Gärtner war’s nicht. Sorry, nothing for you English-reading folks this time, although there is an English translation of Ali und Nino; and you should definitely ask your favourite publisher to get Vea Kaiser translated.
