In 2019 I’ve enjoyed the below books.
I’ve completed the fifth and final book of Dream of the Red Chamber (紅樓夢) and can lay this Chinese classic to rest, although BaoYu and DaiYu will stay with me for quite some time.
My favorite book of the year is A Gentleman in Moscow: a truly great read!
I can also recommend Marguerite Duras’s L’Amant to improve ones French.
The Lieutenant of Inishmore (Modern Classics)1
Kafka on the Shore1
The Story of the Stone, or The Dream of the Red Chamber, Vol. 5: The Dreamer Wakes1
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - Hufflepuff Edition1
The Regency Years1
A Gentlemen in Moscow1
The Far Right Today1
The Handmaid's Tale1
