Challenge Complete: European Reading Challenge

Host: Rose City Reader
Name: European Reading Challenge, 2013
Post Reviews

Dates: January - January
My Goal: 5+ Books (Five Star, Deluxe Entourage)
I signed up to read books set in European countries or written by European authors--with a goal of five or more.  With six books under my belt, my stated commitment is fulfilled. But--there are more European books sitting on this year's TBR shelves, so more reviews are coming your way.  Thanks to Rose City Reader for hosting this one again!
My List:

1. The Man Who Went up in Smoke by May Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö (set in Hungary, written by Swedish authors) [1/8/13]

2. Whip Smart: Lola Montez Conquers the Spaniards  by Kit Brennan (Spain) [2/9/13]
3. Three English Comedies by A. B. De Mille (United Kingdom) [2/27/13]
4. The Perfect Landscape by Ragna Sigurdardottir (Iceland) [3/12/13]
5. The Lady Vanishes by Ethel Lina White (Bulgaria--actually takes place in the "Balkans" which area covers parts of Bulgaria, Serbia, Turkey, etc; I have arbitrarily picked Bulgaria for location) [3/17/13]
6. The Talking Sparrow Murders by Darwin Teilhet (Germany) [5/6/13]

I'm trying to read more fiction by non-English speaking authors too. I got a digital copy of a European speculative fiction anthology, so I'm excited to have time to dive into it.
