Diane  | 12949 comments You are off to a fabulous start, Karen. I hope you will enjoy Palace Walk and Half of a Yellow Sun. I really liked them both.


message 12: by Karen Michele (new)

Karen Michele Burns (klibrary) | 45 comments Thanks, Diane! I'm excited about them and, in fact, I am tackling the entire Cairo Trilogy with another group, so I just edited that entry. I read Palace Walk quite a while ago and enjoyed it, so that part will be a re-read, but the rest will be new to me.

I read the trilogy last year and loved it. All of the books are great.

Karen Michele Burns (klibrary) | 45 comments I just changed stop 4 to The Ukraine. In looking back, I realized that I started Demons in late 2014, so can't claim it for the challenge. Now to look back and see if I read something else from Russia.

Karen Michele Burns (klibrary) | 45 comments Hi Diane,

I have to remove the Ukraine stop as it was pointed out on another group's challenge that the setting is an unnamed town and not necessarily the Ukraine. I've fixed up my thread and I'll try to visit the Ukraine later!

You can still claim it if the author lived there, even if it is unnamed.

Thanks, Diane. If I'd have been smart I would have re-read the rules here before I changed it all! I'll go fix it back, now!
