European Reading Challenge 2013

European RC 2013


As I read 12 books for this Challenge last year, but did not read all the European countries I was planning, I’m going to try this:

Five Star (Deluxe Entourage): Read at least five books by different European authors or books set in different European countries.

Here is my recap:

  1. France: French Illusions, by Linda Kovic-Skow
  2. Turkey: The Dervish, by Frances Kazan
  3. Italy: The Sign of the Weeping Virgin, by Alana J. White
  4. Germany: Shadows Walking, by Douglas R. Skopp
  5. The Netherlands: House of Rocamora, by Donald Michael Platt
  6. Portugal: Blindness, by José Saramago
  7. Hungary: Skylark, by Dezső Kosztolányi
  8. England: The Midwife’s Tale, by Sam Thomas
  9. Wales: The Cuckoos of Batch Magna, by Peter Maughan
  10. Russia: The Consolations of The Forest, by Sylvain Tesson
  11. Austria: Mozart’s Last Aria, by Matt Rees 
  12. Bulgaria: The Elusive Mrs. Pollifax, by Dorothy Gilman –upcoming review
  13. Sicily: Mrs. Pollifax and the Second Thief –upcoming review

  1. Welcome to the 2013 European Reading Challenge! I like the idea of reading book in a series that are set in different countries.

    I am now following you on twitter and pinterest. My twitter name is @GilionDumas and I’m on pinterest too.


  2. I love Dorothy Gilman and wrote extensively about her standalone titles! If your list is for ‘Rose City Reader’ contest; she doesn’t allow authors to be repeated. Canadian Lyn Hamilton travelled her series too so it’s a shame we can’t dive into those resources! I’m not joining this European event again. I disagree strongly with calling Scotland, Wales, Ireland, England one country and the same authors have more work to show people.
