- The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova – Netherlands, Turkey, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria…
- The Quiet American by Graham Greene – Vietnam
- People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks – Australia, Bosnia, Austria, Italy, Spain…
- Dingo by Charles de Lint – Australia
- Guardian of the Dead by Karen Healey – New Zealand
