Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone who joined in with some Nordic reads for January – I hope you found some new gems from the FINDS countries.
I managed six books and am just finishing a seventh, which will make one each from Iceland, Norway and Sweden, and two from Denmark and Finland. Again, I tried to vary my reading, covering two outstanding modern classics (Vesaas and Jansson), two brilliant more recent novels (Helle and Thorsson) in addition to the three very different Nordic Noir/Scandi Crime ones: a gorefest from Denmark, a less gory rural crime from Sweden and an historical crime novel from Finland.
I have a Nordic Reading home on a separate page under my Projects tab above – click here. I’ve added all your reviews from this year and last to my own Nordic reading as a resource for ideas for reading from these countries.
I’m still collecting your links if you’ve yet to review – just link to this page below or the original announcement page which I’ve now made unsticky, and I’ll find them and add to the main list.
January seems a particularly good time for Nordic Reading – and now I think it’ll become a regular feature at AnnaBookBel. Here’s to January 2024!
