Reading || #ReadTheWorld – My List

In my last post, I talked about my new challenge – reading a book to represent every country of the world. This post will be my master list of all the books I read, so come back to this one if you’re looking for recommendations!

The Books

All the countries I’ve read will be in bold and as I write posts about the books, you’ll find link to them there. If I’ve got a book planned for a country (i.e. on my TBR), I’ll add it, but if there’s no book next to the country it’s because it’s yet to be bought – and all recommendations are welcome!
