2013 European Reading Challenge: Review Page

2013 European Reading Challenge
January 1, 2013 to January 31, 2014


THIS IS THE PAGE TO LIST YOUR REVIEWS.

IF YOU HAVE FINISHED, WRAP UP POSTS GO HERE.

TO SIGN UP, GO TO THE MAIN CHALLENGE PAGE, HERE,
OR CLICK THE BUTTON ABOVE.

When you review a book for the 2013 European Reading Challenge, please add it to this list using the linky widget below.  Please link to your review post, NOT the main page of your blog.

NOTE: There is overlap in January 2013 between the last month of the 2012 challenge and the first month of the 2013 challenge. If you participated both years, only count books read in January in one of the years, not both.

Please put your name or the name of your blog, the name of the book you reviewed, and the country of the book or author. For example: Rose City Reader, Doctor Zhivago, Russia.

Hi! Unfortunately there is a restriction of 80 symbols for the name in the linky, so I wasn't able to put the link in the required format :(

I had started this challenge in my journal on Blogger http://myconstantthought.blogspot.com/2013/01/2013-european-reading-challenge.html but after reading my first book, and doing my review, I decided I could better obtain this in my blog on WordPress. So, my review link is on there. I'm still learning the ropes of blogging, so I'm not sure why it says Marilyn Monroe in this link. I apologize and I love reading, honestly haven't read many European books, so I'm glad for this challenge.

I have finished my commitment of five books....but I have more international fare on the docket. So I'm still reading!

Hi hi!
I have only just noticed I had not posted my review for this challenge so I have added the links.
I have read one book for Scotland and one for England and added them both although only one counts...

ENGLAND - When will there be good news? => great book
SWITZERLAND - Entre deux voix
SCOTLAND - La dame sombre
FRANCE - Odette Toulemonde et autres histoires


Sorry, the three books in French are not translated in English (yet) ;)

Ekaterina Egorova said...

Woo-ho! I'm finished :) 5 books set in 5 different countries :) But I'll wait with the round-up post, maybe there'll be more by the end of the year:)

Shonna said...

Just finished Léon & Louise, and although it is set in France, the author is Swiss and the book is actually translated from the original German.

laraemilie said...

I've only just posted my 5th book for the challenge:

Das dunkle Haus am Meer, by Susanne Mischke (sorry in German). It takes place in France and Germany, I counted is for Germany as I read another one for France already...


And by the way, I just wanted to check something: the story has to take place in the country, right? If I read a novel from a Croatian author that takes place in Germany, does it count for Croatia or only for Germany?

Thanks & happy reading

Just posted my review Young Gerber by Friedrich Torberg, the last one about a European book. The scene is Vienna, Austria, and the writer is Austrian although he also held a USAmerican citizenship and maybe a Czechoslovakian one, too.

Since I had a moment, I updated my list of reviews for the challenge. They are quite a lot already! And there will follow more...

Susan said...

Whoops, I forgot to post the country (Finland) for #167. Should be
Avid Series Reader, My First Murder, Finland

Edith LaGraziana said...

Just linked my latest two reviews! The long title of the first almost spoilt it - had to abbreviate the writer's first name!

laraemilie said...

Hi!
New review for me, Amsterdamnation et autres nouvelles by Tatiana de Rosnay, which (partly) takes place in the Netherlands.
So, this is my 5th review and my challenge is completed ;) But I will read some more!

(By the way, I now have a new blog, I hope it is no problem ;))

Happy reading

I just posted my review contribution for Norway - an almost forgotten classic by Nobel Prizs laureate in Literature 1928 Sigrid Undset.

Bev Hankins said...

How interesting...I just read a "The Monster of Florence" which is a totally different book (although same subject, I think) than the one previously posted.

laraemilie said...

Hi!

My sixth book is "La femme à 1000°" by Hallgrímur Helgason, for Iceland. A very surprising but cool book!

Edith LaGraziana said...

I just made another up-date: two new books reviewed for the 2013 European Reading Challenge... and still five months to go!

Edith LaGraziana said...

I just added another four books which I reviewed since my last update in August.

laraemilie said...

Hello!
A new review for me: Le cœur d'une autre, by Tatiana de Rosnay, which partly taks place in Italy. Amazing book!

Miguel (St. Orberose) said...

I'm doing very badly this year, just 4 reviews so far.

Edith LaGraziana said...

At last an up-date! Six more books for the challenge. :-)

Edith LaGraziana said...

So here's my last but one review up-date: Hungary, Finland, Switzerland, Sweden, and Turkey. Two more reviews are coming up this and next week.

Edith LaGraziana said...

Just posted the final two of my reviews for the 2013 challenge! Hope that you'll like them!
