Eurovision has been hailed by many as being the ‘Gay World Cup’. So what if the format for Eurovision was more like the World Cup? The World Cup happens every four years, but we had so much fun with our Eurovision World Cup feature, that it’s become a staple of our Eurovision diary each year. Previous winners have included Nicky Byrne for Ireland (2016), Imri Ziv for Israel (2017), Saara Aalto for Finland (2018) and KEiiNO for Norway (2019). Who will win in 2020? Here’s how it works!

2020 Challenge: Read Books by Authors from 50 Eurovision Nations!

Book Challenge, News

I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions but this year I thought I would challenge myself. This challenge has come in the form of a vow to read 50 books in 2020. Each of these books will be by an author from a different nation, a nation that has competed in the Eurovision Song Contest.

I have decided on my first four books: ‘My Sister, the Serial Killer’ by Oyinkan Braithwaite (UK/Nigeria), ‘Reykjavik Nights’ by Arnaldur Indridason (Iceland), ‘The Slap’ by Christos Tsiolkas (Australia) and ‘Blindness’ by Jose Saramago (Portugal). After that, I’m going to need your help! Have you read any good books by European authors? Please share your suggestions to help me complete my challenge! Keep in mind that there needs to be an English translation of the book, ideally it would be a contemporary novel and easily digested in a week (250-500 pages).
