An Elderly Lady is Up to No Good – Helene Tursten (Sweden)
I actually bought this at Strand Books in NYC, and read it when we were on our holiday in the US – it is really fantastic. It is quick and fun and I totally recommend it.
Pippi Longstocking – Astrid Lindgren (Sweden)
I don’t remember whether I have ever actually read any Pippi Longstocking, but I loved her on the screen, and I think this will be a fun one to share with my daughter.
Maresi – Maria Turtschaninoff (Finland)
This is the first book in a feminist fantasy YA series called The Red Abbey Chronicles – it was an impulse buy at the book store one day, and I’ve heard loads of good things since. Author Maria Turtschaniniff is a Swedish-speaking Finn, and I am pretty sure this was written in Swedish.
A Winter’s Promise and The Missing of Clairdelune – Christelle Dabos (France)
I have had my eye on The Mirror Visitor series for AGES and WIT was the perfect excuse to finally pick them up! Again, I’ve heard so many good things!
Aaaargh they all sound so good – and I have a long list of other (not Swedish!) books I’d love to get my hands on too! But you know I always still love more recommendations – so hit me with your favourite WIT books, or your tbr if you’re reading along with WIT month!
