Finished challenge: BG book bingo от Аз чета

, Не може да си представите радостта и въодушевлението, което ме обзеха, когато видях книжна игра в българското пространство. То може да има още много, но аз все да не попадам на тях. За щастие, обаче, книжното бинго на Аз чета успя да влезе в полезрението ми. Правилата са подобни, както и на другото бинго, в което участвам, но съдържанието на блокчетата е доста по-различно и разнообразно :)

I was extremely happy to find a book challenge in Bulgarian. It is a Book bingo challenge, with rules similar to the other bingo I joined, but with very different themes in the blocks we need to cross away in order to do the bingo.

И ето как се получи моята дъска.

Книга, написана от български автор - "Извънземното от Долна Митрополия" - Петър Марчев Книга, която иначе никога не бихте прочели - "Да се обичаме с отворени очи" - Хорхе Букай Книга с повече от 400 страници -  Войната на цветята" - Тад Уилямс Книга, която избра по корицата -  "Левиатан" - Ск…

Finished challenge: books in a series 2013

Hosted by Book stacks on deck

 ~Choose as many books for your challenge as you like (you can read 1 book from one series, 2 from another series, just 1 book from four different series, etc)

I sign up for level  The Obsessive ~ Choose 16-20+ books since every book that is sonehow a part of a series counts, including even graphic novels

След като съм записана за предизвикателство "първи в поредица" и "продължения в поредици", просто е логично при вида на предизвикателство, което обединява всички книги, част от поредици, да се запиша за него. Записвам се за най-високото ниво - 16-20 книги, тъй като са разрешени дори и графични новели (манги и т.н.)

Ето как въври:
"Блъди Мери" - Джак Даниелс # 2 - Дж.Е Конрат"Левиатан" - - Левиатан #1 -  Скот Уестърфийлд"Недосегаем" - Недосегаем #1 Кристиян Малинов"Разединени" - Разделени светове # 1-  Имран Сидик"Евървил: Първият стълб" - Eвървил #1 -  Рой Хъф"Принцът на и…

Finished challenge: Paranormal reads

Hosted by Reading with martinis
This challenge was all about Paranormals.Like the hostess says: Do you love zombies, vampires, werewolves, witches, and everything else that goes bump in the night? Well, I do! The hostess's blog hasn't been active for some months - but hey - my crafty place hasn't been either, lol.
Anyway, I signed up for level Spooked – 6 books

Twelve days/Yound 80 - Marjie MyersUntouchable - Kristian MalinovDangerous games - Anya Snow & Scarlet WhiteThe thin line - Anya Snow & Scarlet White Atlantis rising - Alyssa Day Lover mine - J.R.Word Sanguis  - Aleksandrina Ghelezova Anima - Aleksandrina GhelezovaGuardians at the gate - Ray Dacolias How to abduct a highland lord - Karen HawkinsAtlantis awakening - Alyssa Day Aaah, only one more slot to fill, and I'd qualify for the next level! Tempting. But let's not be greedy. Here are the paranormal reads that didn't get reviews (for now):

Florence and Giles - John Harding The man …

Finished challenge: In the middle 2013

Hosted by Rachel Turns pages

This cute challenge is about books which length is between 300 and 400 pages. The hostess is right - it is just not fair that they don't have a challenge, when the tinies and the chunkies have :)
I signed for level  Cruising through the pages: 5-10 books. It turned to be a wisw decision - I was surprised to find that most of the books I read were either thinner than 300 pages or more than 400. For the books I read in Bulgarian, I follow the page count of the translated edition.

In-the-middles with reviews:
Bloody Mary - J.A. Konrath - 358 pagesUntouchable - Kristian Malinov- 350Leviathan - Scott Westerfield- 376The Prince of Ravens - Hal Emerson  - 356Atlantis rising - Alyssa Day-376The prodigal - Michael Hurley - 358Minx - Julia Quinn - 391Behold a dark mirror - Theophilus Axxe In-the-middles without reviews (by the time I am writing this post)
