2018 World Cup: Pick A Country, Get A Book Rec

2018 World Cup

Hello everyone! So, if you’ve been living under a rock for the past week and don’t know, the 2018 World Cup (aka THE biggest soccer game in the world) is currently happening in Russia! Starting June 14 and ending July 15, 32 countries will play each other in several rounds bringing it down by the end to the final World Cup winner! Right now, there are 32 teams in the running but, in the second round, there will only be 16. Today, I thought I would take my pick for who would be the 16 and give a book recommendation based on what the country is! Each book is either set in the country or the MC and/or author is from the respective country. Hope you enjoy:

  1. Australia: Illuminae* by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
  2. Brazil: The Summer Prince* by Alaya Dawn Johnson
  3. Denmark: Number the Stars* by Lois Lowry
  4. Egypt: The City of Brass* by S.A. Chakraborty
  5. England: A Discovery of Witches* by Deborah Harkness
  6. France: The Paris Wife* by Paula McLain
  7. Germany: The Book Thief* by Markus Zusak
  8. Japan: Flame in the Mist* by Renee Ahdieh
  9. South Korea: I Believe in a Thing Called Love* by Maurene Goo
  10. Mexico: North of Happy* by Adi Alsaid
  11. Nigeria: Purple Hibiscus* by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  12. Poland: The Dollmaker of Krakow* by R.M. Romero
  13. Portugal: Bookishly Ever After* by Isabel Bandeira
  14. Russia: The Crown’s Game* by Evelyn Skye
  15. Spain: The Mapmaker’s Daughter* by Laurel Corona
  16. Sweden: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo* by Stieg Larsson

And that is all for the book recommendations! TBH, I don’t really have a pick for who would be the 16, I just couldn’t comfortably pick a book rec for all the countries so I just used the 16 easiest lol Now, are you watching this year’s World Cup? Which country/countries are you rooting for? Let me know in the comments below!! Personally, I’m rooting for Egypt and the rest is on a game by game basis hahaha! Anyways, thanks, have a great day/night and tata for now!
