I don't do book club because I cannot even stand by my seasonal TBR piles. I'd never be able to read a specific read in a week because I am also a mood reader so this would just get in a way. My perfect book club would be everyone reading for a month and then we'd have a weekend away to gush about books we read and loved for 3 days straight.
I do suck at reading Slovenian books and I want to change that. I have read some great Slovenian literature and it's a shame I haven't been keeping up with the trend. As a kid I enjoyed 'our' books a lot. So I am not posting what I should read but rather my favorite Slovenian reads I've read in my life. Maybe a book club where we focused on local literature would do many of us good.
Bogdan Novak's books
I read nearly all of his books that were out by the time I was out of elementary and into high school. I loved them all, he was my favorite Slovenian author when I was a child. My favorite books by him were similar to Famous Five by Enid Blyton (my ACTUAL faves from my childhood before HP came along).
Desa Muck's books
I haven't read all of her books but I've read some and they were really funny. She was pretty controversial when I was little, she wrote about sex in one book and people actually dared one another to borrow it from the school library. But her novels were always so life-like and so real, and very educational in a way. And very funny, too.
Janja Vidmar's books
Her books are very life-like as well, she touched topics of gay boys, of emigrants, of body image with girls, and she even wrote a scary book. I liked reading her stories because they were real and very engaging.
Ivan Sivec's books
I read a few of his works and liked the books a lot as well. I haven't followed him after I went to high school though, he writes a lot! His latest series is focused on Romans in Slovenian area and I am very tempted to read these.
