52937 Romania - Bram Stoker's Dracula by Bram Stoker

Bram Stoker's Dracula

I'm glad I finally read it, but I'm not sure I'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't have to read it for class.

52937 Bulgaria - Night Soldiers (Night Soldiers, #1) by Alan Furst

52937 Greece - Oh. My. Gods. (Oh. My. Gods, #1) by Tera Lynn Childs

Predictable but I would be willing to read more of the series.

52937 Finland - True by Riikka Pulkkinen


Well-written, but I'm getting tired of the jump-in-time device.

52937 Sweden - Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist

52937 England - My Booky Wook by Russell Brand

My Booky Wook

It took me a while to appreciate it, but I liked it. And I'm not even a fan of Russell Brand.

52937 Iceland - Under the Glacier by Halldór Laxness

Under the Glacier

I didn't really like it, but I don't think it was a bad book. I just didn't really understand it because I didn't pay enough attention to it.

My husband is Air Force, too. A one-year short tour overseas was the only way we could guarantee he could end up back where I would be. I'm looking forward to all the new travel destinations we'll be able to explore in Asia while I put myself into the poor house flying back and forth to visit him every few months!

52937 Thanks, Diane! I'm excited to start this challenge.
