  1. Wow. I am pretty impressed that you are writing in English and reading books published in English. You are Swedish, yes? I would love to read more books set in Sweden as my dad's mother came from Sweden. Is Blackwater published in English? I should look for it.

    Great list! You're really spanning the globe here! For blog-related reasons, my own Top 10 for the week is all books from a single other country (the Philippines); but now you're making me wonder if I could have made another list with as much variety as yours!
