Welcome to The Monthly Booking
Curated reading lists focusing on translation and independent presses, plus occasional books in German
Reading Lists & Reviews
Regular curated reading lists, plus weekly reviews of new and not-so-recent books, mainly in the fields of literary fiction, translation, independent publishing and popular non-fiction.
Books in German
Reviews of the best German, Austrian and Swiss authors available in English translation, plus recommendations for new books in German yet to be translated but highly deserving of it.
Bookshops, Articles & More
Reviews of my favourite bookshops around the world, independent press profiles, and occasional articles on podcasts, literary subscription services or new ways to enjoy reading.
The Monthly Booking was born of a desire to read more thoughtfully, expand my literary horizons, and focus on the kind of books that really matter to me.
