Book Club | June 2019 - Translated Into Your Native Language

For our 2019 BB Book Club we've put together a printable list of twelve different prompts. On the 1st day of each month, we'll be introducing you to the month's prompt and the books team members each plan to read, along with some other suggested reads we think you'll love. Of course, these are just ideas so please feel free to interpret the prompts however you wish!

We're also inviting you to share photos and mini reviews of your book club picks on social media using #bookshelfbookclub and tag @bloggersbookshelf on Instagram.

Our prompt for June is... Translated Into Your Native Language

What we'll be reading...

Ria's Pick: The Vegetarian by Han Kang

"I really loved the almost melancholic style of Kang's The White Book and a few much more 'literary-minded' friends have been recommending this to me for months! So I'm really looking forward to this one. The premise looks odd but in a super interesting (and potentially creepy) way too."

Anjali's Pick: Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

"Ruby Red has actually be on my TBR list for a little while now and seems to be very popular (it's received a 4.12 star rating on Goodreads!); I'm really looking forward to getting into it! This time-travelling book was originally written in Geir's native language, German, and was translated into English by Anthea Bell."

Other suggested reads...

- Battle Royale (Koushun Takami) - review
- Beartown (Fredrik Backman)
- Sophie's World (Jostein Gaarder)
- 1Q84 (Haruki Murakami)
- The White Book (Han Kang) - 2018 book club roundup
