#5OnMyTBR – Translated

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook where you chose five books from your to-be-read pile that fit that week’s theme. If you’d like more info, head over to the announcement post!

Hello, reader!

Welcome to the beginning of another week! The beginning of the week means it’s time for another 5 On My TBR post. This week’s theme focuses on translated books and I found that I have a lot more translated books on my TBR than I thought I did! I’ve always wanted to try and read more translated books, so it’s good to know I already have a few on the TBR from which to choose.

Now, let me show you which five made the list!

#1. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez

This has been on my TBR for quite awhile because of a few reasons. The main reason, though, is that it’s a classic. If you’ve been around my blog for awhile, you’ll know that I have a strained relationship with classics, haha. Still, the premise is so intriguing that it stays on the TBR. I even bought a copy, so I’m clearly planning on reading this! Eventually… I’m hoping that I love this once I get around to reading it.

#2. Beartown by Fredrik Backman

I’ve only read one book by Fredrik Backman but that book made me want to read his entire backlist. I love his writing so much! At least, I love his writing in A Man Called Ove. I’m hoping that style carries over to the rest of his backlog! I have quite a few Backman books on my TBR, but Beartown is definitely the one I want to read the most. I’ve just heard so many great things about it and I’m excited to give it a go.
