My first young adult book Secrets of a girl in love has been published in Slovak language. I'm currently working on a translation to English, but it's going very slowly since translating your own book is not as exciting as writing it and I've already started writing the sequel (which is much more fun). So I have no idea if I will ever finish this project.

My dream is to travel around the world. Well, that is not going to happen any time soon, so I've decided to travel with my nose in a book. Inspired by Ann Morgan and her "year-long journey through a book from every country in the world", I'm going to read the world. 196 books in 365 days doesn't sound doable (or enjoyable) to me, that is why I'm not setting a deadline for this challenge. I'm turning it into a life-long project instead. Starting with our neighbours, I hope I'll get to Zimbabwe by the time I'm 80 (in case I'm going to read in alphabetical order, which I doubt).

So I'm looking for must-reads from all over the world and I'm not going to restrict myself to just one book per country (is it even possible to choose only one must-read title?). If you like to get on this book journey yourself, I'd love to hear about your experience. Please do not hesitate to share your suggestions, ideas and recommendations even for books from other countries. Send message to info@helenamurcekova.com.
