On My TBR – Chinese Literature In Translation

Whenever I learn a new language, I love discovering its people’s culture, whether it’s with books, music, movies… In my opinion culture is fondamental then, as languages don’t exist in a vacuum, you know? Ignoring it just wouldn’t make any sense to me. As I’ve said in my post about how I learn Spanish, I’ve started learning Chinese at the beginning of January, so of course I made a list of (translated into English) Chinese books to read! (I know it’s so common and it makes me feel a bit like a heroine of romance novel but yes, I do make lists of everything 😳)

Without further ado, let’s start !

Disclaimer : I’ve tried to be the most accurate possible when adding the genres of the books, but I might have been mistaken. Feel free to tell me if that’s the case!

That’s it for today! So, tell me : have you read one of those books? Are some of them on your TBR? Let’s discuss in the comments!

  1. This is a great list! Broken Stars and Invisible Planets are on my TBR, and I’ve read The Three-Body Problem. It was a good hard-sci-fi book, but it was definitely one that required a lot of thought while I was reading it. For me it wasn’t an easy read, but it was worth it!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I’ve seen reviews saying the same thing about The Three-Body Problem and that’s why I started with Invisible Planets, as scifi short-stories are easier for me to get into… and less intimidating 🙈

  2. What an amazing list! There are so many on it I want to read one day. I loved Eileen Chang’s Half a Lifelong Romance and I think I will love Lust, Caution. Life and Death Are Wearing Me Out is new to me, and Chinese sci-fi is certainly something to be reckoned with!
