What are you currently reading?
As you know I’m reading #NovNov2022 this month and we’re on week two.
Week two of #NovNov2022 is Novella’s in Translation and I’m about to start Under the Snow by Kirstin Ekman (Trans. Joan Tate). This is my only nominated book for week 2.
I’m hoping that that either this week or next week I’ll be able to fit in Foster by Claire Keegan so that I have enough time to read the other three titles for contemporary novella week.
What did you recently finish reading?
Well #NovNov has begun and I posted my hoped for reads last week. It begins with short classics and I listed four books: Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys, The Lonely Londoners by Sam Selvon, Animal Farm by George Orwell and The Time Machine by H G Wells to choose from or if I manage more than one book.
I managed to read Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys which I will share my thoughts on by the end of November.
Are you interested in joining #NovNov22? Rebecca of Bookish Beck and Cathy at 746Books are co-hosting Novellas in November as a month-long challenge with four weekly prompts. There is a ‘buddy read’ feature this year for which Foster by Claire Keegan has been chosen. You can pop to their blog using the links above or check it out on my blog.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Next comes Short nonfiction week (week 3) again just one book for this week, God and Caesar by Shirley Williams.
Then week 4 is contemporary novellas I’ve listed four titles – Foster by Claire Keegan, which is the Buddy read and can be read at any point during the month, I hope to have already read this in week 2 or 3; The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett, Every Trick in the Book by Iain Hood and The Hermit by Louise Walters. I really am hoping to manage all four titles.
I have a lot of shorts on my shelves so I’ll be reading more of them in the coming months.
Well that’s another Wednesday I’ve actually managed to post in a row for WWW-Wednesday. If you’ve any thoughts or have read any of these maybe leave a comment below and let me know what you think.
