Yeah, I probably was way too optimistic thinking I could read this book in a target language. The vocabulary isn't necessarily complex but it is still vast. Doubt I'm really going to enjoy it if I were to try reading the book in Russian, my level is definitely not good enough for it.

I think I'm a bit burnt out on Russian.

Last night I've watched an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in Hungarian. There were no subtitles available, so I could only understand a few words here and there and sometimes a very easy sentence. Right now I'm watching an episode of Masterchef Hrvatska. I haven't lost too much Croatian vocabulary, I think. I should probably not dive right back into it, my Russian isn't good enough yet to avoid all interferences between both languages. I'm just a bit bored and don't really know what I want to do right now.
