6. A national book and an international book
One of the most famous portuguese writers is José Saramago. He won the Literature Nobel in 1998 (“who with parables sustained by imagination, compassion and irony continually enables us once again to apprehend an elusory reality”- according to Nobel Prizes’ website)
I have only read one book, which is the one below. I had to read it for my last year at highschool because we had to talk about it in Portuguese classes. I thought I wouldn’t like it, but it was a really interesting read! I hope I read his other books sometime!
There is an american edition, and the title is Baltasar and Blimunda.
For an international book, I chose Throne of Glass, by Sarah J. Maas because I have seen so many international editions of it!
This book is the first one in the Throne of Glass series. It already has four published books, and there are still to be published two books, according to Goodreads. The fourth book, Queen of Shadows, was published in September 2015.
I haven’t read this Fantasy book, but there are SO MANY good reviews about this story! So, I really cannot wait to read it!
Throne of Glass was published in Portugal last month. Actually, I bought the Portuguese edition, even though I already have the one above. Sorry… NOT SORRY! **
