52937 There is no way I can finish my challenge in time (by the end of the year). I thought it will be no problem, because I read about 100 books a year, but I keep repeating countries. So what will happen to my challange? Do I have to start from the begining or just continue?

52937 I've read Džin 1: Otomanski ciklus for Turkey. This book reminded me of The Twentieth Wife, because they both talk about women in harem and their influence on ruling an empire.

52937 I like the cover of this book. It gave me the chills so I wanted to read it. And the other photos in the book are a good illustration. Authors should do that more often, illustrate books.
This book started really nice and I liked the first half a lot. It was like a psychological drama with a touch of fear where you could not tell what is real and what isn’t. It was also creepy, but in a good way. From there this book could go in so many ways, but it went the wrong way - supernatural and predictable all the way. Except the loop. Maybe I’m stupid but I did not get that loop thing at all … who can pass, when … and by the end I did not care. I ran through the last 30 pages and there is no real ending so I was mad. I’m not reading the sequel!

I understood that the author borrowed those photos from private collectors and that they are the ones who collected them at flea markets.

52937 This weekend I have read Around the World in Eighty Days. I have no idea why I did not read this book for this challenge sooner. It should be mandatory book for the challenge!
I have seen so many movies on this subject I thought it will be boring, but on the contrary, it was great. I read it in a hart beat. The only thing I did not like is that Fogg solves all his problems with money.
Also, I was amassed that I have visited almost all of the countries mentioned in the book. So on the end this book is my challenge for Singapore.

52937 I finally finished Blindness, my challenge for Portugal. It's very interesting and intriguing book, but it’s hard to say did I like it. It made me wonder does humanity have a future and I didn’t like the answer.

52937 I obviously didn't express myself very well. English is my second language after all. Lets tray again ;) :

Dunavski blues by Hrvoje Ivančić is a wonderful travelogue of 2 men traveling in 4 m long boat on rivers Sava and Danube from Zagreb to the Black sea. During the travel they cross through Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine, but it’s my challenge for Romania. The book is spontaneous, direct, open and honest. A great read!
After this book I decided to read a lot more travelogues for this challenge, especially Around the World in 80 Days Companion to the PBS Series by Michael Palin

52937 The Night Circus takes place in many countries but it's my challenge for Austria. It's a beautiful book and I can't wait for someone to make it into a movie so I can relive that magical atmosphere once again.

52937 Read Hygiene and the Assassin for Belgium. It was a hard book and I didn't like it. It reminded me of Perfume: The Story of a Murderer. If you are curious you can watch a movie.

52937 Can we use books where location is not specified by country of author (like Hygiène de l'assassin for Belgium or Blindness for Portugal)?

52937 Thanks! It's an interesting challenge and I like participating, but it has 1 bad side. I have neglected other challenges, books and goodreads groups.
To make it more interesting I have decided to visit all of the countries in Europe. Exploring my back yard first. ;)

This book is funny, educational and unpretentious. Because of that it’s a very good way to learn about Burma (Myanmar).

52937 A part of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. 1 takes place in Egypt. I liked it, but not so much as other books by Alan Moore I've read so far (Watchmen and V for Vendetta). And it's a new region for me (Africa).
