Rose from Rose City Reader is hosting a European Reading Challenge. One of my goals for this year is to branch out in my reading and I always mean to read more non-Anglophone authors and about European settings so I'm signing up.

Visit the challenge post for the details, I'm choosing to sign up for 5 books set in different European countries or by European authors.

Poland - ?
Sweden - April Witch by Majgull Axelsson

I joined the European Reading Challenge as well and I'm browsing a little through the participant's list. I'm so interested in what everyone is reading for the challenge! And you already choose books! So good!
I don't know any of your choices so I'm looking forward to learn more from you. Will come back :)

Ataleofthreecities - wow, that's brave, I'm way too lazy! :-)

from one experience - I love making lists so that's why I pre-chose books... who knows what I'll end up reading though!

Rose City Reader - thanks, I'm looking forward to my books!
