A month of reading novellas
They will both put up an opening post on 1 November where you can leave your links throughout the month, to be rounded up on the 30th, and they are take turns introducing a theme each Tuesday.
1 – 7 November: Short Classics (Rebecca)
8 – 14November: Novellas in Translation (Cathy)
15 – 21 November: Short Non-Fiction (Rebecca)
22 – 28 November: Contemporary Novellas (Cathy)
29/30 November: My Month in Novellas/ New to my TBR
(It is suggest that 150–200 pages as the upper limit for a novella, and post-1980 as a definition of “contemporary.”)
My reason for sharing now is that for this new feature ‘Buddy Read’ the chosen book Foster by Claire Keegan is available for a limited time online. For those aren’t able to buy or borrow from your library it is a chance and a limited time access to read Foster through the New York Times Review.
Foster by Claire Keegan
In a change from last year, they are hosting one buddy read throughout the month and this year we have chosen Foster by Claire Keegan. If you want to join in, you can read Foster online here (limited time access to NYT Review article) and review it at any point throughout the month. You could also try and catch the Irish language film version of Foster – An Cailín Ciúin– which was released this year to rave reviews and is widely tipped for an Oscar nomination.
You can buy Foster by Claire Keegan Bookshop.org (affiliate link)
