Tomorrow, darling readers, you’ll find me in rainy London. That’s right, I’m jumping the pond for a day. Kimbofo (a.k.a – Kim Forrester, one of my blogger icons) invited me to spend this Tuesday at her blog Reading Matters. It’s Triple Choice Tuesday – where each week she has a reader, author or blogger discuss three books that are important to them. Past Tuesdays’ line-ups have featured some of my favorite authors and bloggers, and I’m hugely honored to be included among them.
So, come take a peek at my choices and spend some time exploring Reading Matters.
And don’t forget to check in at Three Percent. They’ll be announcing the Best Translated Book Award shortlist sometime tomorrow.

And here was me just about to start moaning about how my cousin is in London, but didn’t get in touch..! Like your choices – Defoe is a really interesting character and wrote one of my favourite books (Moll Flanders). Faulkner is usually excellent, and have never read anything by your Argenitian friend.
Just to make you extra jealous – I’m going to a book reading soon by Hilary Mantel, who is going to be reading excerpts from Bring up the Bodies. Do you have any questions you’d like me to ask at the end?!
Haha! I’m actually looking at my review copy of Bring Up the Bodies as I type. 😉 I don’t have a specific question, but if one comes up during the reading you’re attending (& yes! I am appropriately green with envy) please share.
Found you via Triple Choice Tuesday. Love your blog. Adding you to my blogroll!!! I’m also moving towards literature in translation more and more these days. You’re reviewing lots of books that look very interesting to me.
Thank you for following CB! And for adding BookSexy to your blogroll.
I’m glad to have found you via Triple Choice Tuesday. I’ve subscribed and look forward to receiving your blog updates.
Hi Debbie, Welcome! I’m glad you discovered the blog as well. Kim is very generous to other bloggers. I hope you enjoy BookSexy as much as Reading Matters.
I love her blog too – going to check you out over there!
