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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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) ;)

  8. 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:)

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

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

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

  15. 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

  17. 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.

  18. Hi!

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