Everything España: a 2014 Reading Challenge


January 1, 2014 – December 31, 2014

Spain is a very interesting country with a very rich culture and history. I’m personally always on the lookout for novels either set or coming from this country so I thought it would be interesting to host a reading challenge all about this Iberian country (something I haven’t really come across online in the blogosphere) :)

Here’s the rundown on the challenge:

  • This reading challenge runs from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2014
  • You can join at any time
  • Books accepted in this challenge:
    • Books set anywhere in Spain (either completely or partly)
    • Books written by a Spanish author (born in or is a citizen of Spain)
    • Books either written originally in Spanish or translated to another language
    • Re-reads are acceptable
    • Fiction and non-fiction titles are acceptable
  • Linking your reviews to the separate Linky Widget that I will be posting up on31 December is optional but strongly recommended just so that we can share titles and thoughts with other bloggers, learn new titles out there and get to know each other in the process :)

For a list of novels either set in Spain and/or written by a Spanish author, check out a Pinboard I made on Pinterest. You can also browse through my tag here(although it only includes novels written by Spanish authors) and my list of books set in Spain :)

Levels (sorry, not feeling very creative coming up with these levels, lol; I’m pretty laxed about this):

  • 1 – 4 books — Tourist
  • 5 – 9 books — Frequent Traveller
  • 10+ books — Spain Is My Home

This reading challenge is hosted by Caffeinated Life. For more information and to sign-up, please see this post.
