Language Freak June Update

Hi everybody! How are you doing? Sorry about being so late with this update, I've had my mom visiting me, so I was never at home, always sightseeing! :) My leg muscles are so sore! Nevertheless, I've read half of my first Czech book! It's sooo boyish... I'm already tired of fights.

Our participants have been doing great this month! Let's see what we have accomplished!

First, let us welcome our new participant, alwaysopinionatedgirl who'll be reading in French!

And now reviews by language! Note that June reviews have been marked by NEW!

Please, let me know if I've forgotten anything. June has been hectic and sometimes I had to skim through my RSS feed, although I did try to stop by and comment :)

Seems like we are making a nice progress altogether! Good luck next month to everybody!


  1. I actually read Frog is Sad in May :) This month for the challenge I read Krabat in German. My review is here:

    1. Ok, I need to learn to look and think before commenting :P Ignore my previous comment!

      Everyone's doing well :D Awesome to see!

    2. It's OK :) I just like to see all the reviews in one place - helps you to choose a book in a language :)

  2. I am doing TERRIBLE. I'm not very far into my book, I'm in a blogging slump, my 'relaxing' summer has turned busy and stressful and a little bit scary, and I think I am just not up for it this time. Which, given that I have yet to admit to failing at a reading challenge, really shows you that I'm not doing well.

    1. Welcome to the club, hehe :) Don't stress yourself! Slumps and shit happen! Just weather it through!

    2. I'm sorry to hear that your summer has turned out so busy and stressful. I hope you are able to turn it around and be able to enjoy August.

  3. That's great that you've had such a nice visit with your mom! This year is proving bad for mosquitoes so I haven't been out much, which is annoying. I have a busy few weeks and then holidays start. I can't wait!

    1. Oh, mosquitoes! Can't stand them! I hope there'll be less when your vacation actually starts! :)

  4. I've failed miserably so far, but with exams in May and June, I barely had time to read until now. I had misplaced the French book that I wanted to read! I just spent twenty minutes looking for it because I could find the second part of the trilogy, but not the first one. Now that I've found it, I have all the books that I want to read nicely on a desk.

    1. Oh, this sounds so familiar! May and June are also always busy for me because of the Uni. Good luck with your reading! :)
