A – Z Translated Fiction Project

The idea for this project was stolen from Naomi, over at Consumed By Ink. She did an A-Z Canadian Literature Project (another idea I’m totally stealing borrowing) and since I’ve been trying to read more translated fiction, I thought it would be fun to try and read translated fiction from A-Z. I’m hoping to complete this by the end of 2018, or at least mid-2019, but we’ll see how it goes.

I would love any recommendations, if you have any!
