June Group Challenge 2020

Maio 19, 2020, 10:07pm

Another easy one for this month. Hopefully everyone will have something suitable in their home. Although some libraries in Australia are due to re-open on 1st June - maybe other places are too? - so we may be able to access more titles soon!

Let's read a book written by a non US/UK author.

I might actually complete this mini-challenge! I'm reading a short one: Fathers and Sons by Turgenev. I've stalled on just about everything else I've picked up lately.

I'm reading Half of a Yellow Sun. The author grew up in Nigeria. I picked a few others as well, since I seem to be flying through books lately.

I started The Magic Mountain for this month's challenge. It's been sitting on my TBR pile for 25 years or so!

I have completed Queen Margot by Alexandre Dumas and while this came nowhere near the perfection of The Count of Monte Cristo, it was an entertaining read full of intrigue, swordplay and romance.

I finished Fathers and Sons by Turgenev.

I've picked up Deep Rivers by Jose Maria Arguedas for this month's challenge. I'm really behind on my reading so far this month, so it will be a REAL challenge, we'll see!

Finished Half of a Yellow Sun and it was fantastic. Hard to stomach, in parts, but sometimes I need the difficult window into a world I'll never experience.

I did finally finish Deep Rivers and really enjoyed it. It's about Ernesto, who has been traveling with his father, a lawyer, for many years all over Peru, and enters a boarding school while his father continues on taking a case in another town.
