BBAW - My Blog Discovery

Today for Book Blogger Appreciation Week, book bloggers are encouraged to write about a book we discovered because of a book blog- a book we loved, hopefully!- and write a little about the blog on which we found it.

My biggest and best discovery from a blog is Russian author Ludmila Ulitskaya, who wrote the wonderful novels Medea and Her Children and The Funeral Party.

I found out about Ulitskaya on the wonderful blog Almost Insider, written by Hungarian blogger Anni. Anni blogs about European fiction, both Hungarian and other. She's a very good writer with great taste in books- and anyone interested in serious international literary fiction should add her to their reading list.

I'm going to check out Anni's blog now. I am so impressed with those who blog in a language that's not their native tongue.

Almost Insider sounds like a blog I would love. I am really trying to explore fiction from other countries that you don't often read much about, so Anni's blog will probably be a treasure trove for me. Thanks!

I don't think I've ever read any international authors aside from a few British ones. Thanks for the suggestions!
