Europa Editions Challenge

I own but have not read two books published by Europa Editions.   What the heck, let’s join another challenge!

<– click to go to it…



I have Elena Ferrante’s The Days of Abandonment.     At 188 pages, this will be my first to read.


Michelle Zackheim’s Broken Colors.    I picked this one up at BEA 2010 because I liked the cover.

Have you read these or anything by Europa?

  1. You’re joining?? Awesome! Do you have an invitation yet? Email europachallenge at and I’ll get you fixed up! Yay!!!

    1. Thanks Marie, but I think I will just sit on the sidelines for my participation this time. I just finished tDoA and whoa was it a gut punch! and I think I might as well dive right into Broken Colors. I LOVE the paper of Europa Eds and the flap thing.

  2. The beginning of your post made me laugh! I joined this challenge too, despite the fact that I have been sucking when it comes to challenges! My favorite Europa book so far is The Elegance of the Hedgehog.

    1. Lola, funnyEnough, I’m really not sure I want to read Hedgehog. but I love the style/feel of Europa books. Haven’t read enough to say I like the books!

    1. *gasp* Nancy hasn’t heard of Europa?? Get thee to a bookstore!!

      I’m not doing the challenge, but I did read a Europa this week…The Hottest Dishes of the Tartar Cuisine. It was most excellent.

      1. GASP! is right!! (altho, I wouldn’t know about them right off if it hadn’t been for YOU steering me to their booth last year!)

  3. Care – do you typically go to BEA? I saw your note about picking up one of these selections at BEA 2010! lucky lucky you. I would like to attend that event – every year would be nice (hahahaha) but interested in hearing about your experience(s) there…

    1. Oh, I attended the first Book Bloggers Conference in 2010 and arrived early enough to catch a few booths at BEA. I live an easy train ride away from NYC and it’s a shame I don’t get there more often.

  4. I should join this challenge for the same reason: own a few Europa Editions but haven’t read them yet. Happy reading and good luck.
