While the Global Children’s Book Club is obviously focused on families with children, I’ve had requests from a number of adults who’d like their own book list! This is the perfect way to read around the world with us this year, whether you’d like some extra material in addition to the children’s books, or whether you’re only reading for yourself.

While I won’t be actively discussing these over on Instagram, I’d love to hear your thoughts on them if you do read along! As with the children’s books, I’ve done my best to find representative, quality literature written by those of the culture whenever possible. I hope you enjoy!
