Book four of the challenge: Middlemarch by George Elliot - England and Italy

Julie said...

So far, I've visited the UK and Iceland. I'm having fun finding new places to visit. Doomsday Book by Connie Willis was great!

K. Olson said...

Book five of the challenge: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley - Switzerland

Melissa Embry said...

My third book of the challenge -- some vintage Nordic noir from Swedish crime writer Hakan Nesser.

Audrey Petrus said...

I meant Finland. The Rabbit Back Literature Society is Finland. Should I relink with the correct country or is there a way to edit the link?

Gilion Dumas said...

Audrey: I removed the incorrect link for The Rabbit Back Literature Society. You can add a correct link. I don't know how to edit links. Thanks!

Audrey Petrus said...

Thank you! My brain clearly went with "some northern country" and stopped at that.

Now...on to Russia!

Linky disappeared there, but it's back.

K. Olson and Phinnea -- I added your last links.

Gilion Dumas said...

Please list the name of the book and the country in your link description, along with your name or the name of your blog. Thanks!

Melissa Embry said...

I think this is my fifth book, but am losing count: Elena Ferrante's "My Brilliant Friend," for Italy.

K. Olson said...

I've lost count as well, but just finished and reviewed A Man Called Ove for Sweden. My blog is Introspective Yarns. I loved My brilliant Friend Melissa, but then got bored around the middle of the second book in the trilogy. Interesting hype around the author.

K. Olson said...

Down to France and back in time with Hilary Mantel's A Place of Greater Safety.

K. Olson said...

Through the beauty of Bulgaria in The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova

K. Olson said...

Through Belgium and back to France and England with The Girl in the Blue Beret by Bobbie Ann Mason

K. Olson said...

Travelled back to St. Petersburg, Russia for Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.

Karen M. Gibson said...

I just posted my fifth book. This is a fun challenge. I hope to add two or three more before the year is out. Thanks for hosting this challenge!

Karen M. Gibson said...

Added my 6th book, Poland, 1791-94, Third of May Constitution. 3.5 more months in the challenge - I wonder how many more I can read?!

Audrey Petrus said...

A quick stop in Belgium officially brings me halfway through the tour! And I have to admit, some of these smaller countries are making it difficult. I feel a lot of inter-library loans coming up.

Currently reading Voices from Chernobyl for Belarus to finish off the "B" countries.

At this point I'm not sure if I'll make it through all of Europe, but I'm already really pleased the the results. Onward explorers!

Clicked "submit" before I added the location to my entry for *The Contest*. It takes place in Armenia.

topazshell said...

I had to redo the challenge entries. Those three "Tea" entries are wrong. Is there a way to delete them? Thanks.
