Reading Challenge 2015-July

In the city just for a day and for a couple more medical tests.
I only have time to blog about my summer reading so far which I really enjoy!
The books I read in July for the So little sleeping and so much reading #readathon15 challenge.
Stephen King's Insomnia Loved it! (Over 600 pages category/ 1out of 4 in the Summerreadathon country U.S.A)
 Autumn Wounds (Guz Sancisi) by Yilmaz Karakoyunlu. Although the story was so touching and so related to me and my parents' life in Istanbul I didn't really like the writing of the author.(A book I borrowed category/ 2 out of 4 in the summerreadathon country Turkey)
 The loneliness of the borders by Glykeria Grekou. I really liked this book. It expresses anti racism ideas and it really related to me and how I felt as a child coming to Greece from another country. (A book in my bookcase for a long time category)
 Perfume by Patrick Suskind I had read the book in Greek and had seen the movie and really loved both. Having found this in English really made me want to read it again and I loved it once again. ( Horror category/ 3 out of 4 in the summerreadathon country Germany)

You're very brave to take on this kind of reading challenge - I prefer to read whatever takes my fancy, and so I have a big pile of library books next to my bed so that when I finish a book, I have a selection of my favourite genres available to read. I read a couple of Stephen Kings in my younger days and now avoid him like the Plague! I don't read any horror at all. Give me a good detective, or a family saga, and I'm happy, but I also like historical and fiction set in places I am familiar with.

Θα ευχηθώ καλά αποτελέσματα και περισσότερη ξεκούραση με ωραία βιβλία. Η αϋπνία ειδικά μου βγήκε μονοκοπανιά και δεν το περίμενα καθόλου. Καλή συνέχεια Αριάδνη!

I am reading Austen in August. I never really got into Stephen King...I don't really like scary things. But, whatever you're reading is great as long as you read!

So great that you stick to this challenge. I have often tried to do a reading challnege but I have always failed after a while, lol. But I still love the idea of reading challenges.
