Hosted by Shannon at River City Reading.
If all goes according to plan, my library use after this month will be dwindling. Starting in the new year I’m hoping to concentrate more on the books I own. There are so many good ones that I never get to because I keep putting books on hold at the library. But, you know, I will still use the library when I absolutely have to.
Library books read:
- The Kitchen God’s Wife by Amy Tan (for Literary Wives)
- The Stranger by Albert Camus (Novellas in November)
- Fallsy Downsies by Stephanie Domet
- The Bourgeois Empire by Evie Christie (Novellas in November)
- Sparkling Cyanide by Agatha Christie (Novellas in November)
- Ordinary Love and Good Will by Jane Smiley (Novellas in November)
- Twenty-One Cardinals by Jocelyne Saucier
- In the Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick
- The End of the Alphabet by CS Richardson (Novellas in November)
- The Birthday Lunch by Joan Clark
All the books I read this month, except for one, were from the library.
Reading novellas really makes it look like I’ve read a lot of books!
Checked out, to be read:
- Homing by Stephanie Domet
- Three Blind Mice by Agatha Christie (Novellas in November)
- Watch How We Walk by Jennifer LoveGrove
- These Good Hands by Carol Bruneau
- Eileen by Ottessa MoshFegh
- Novels and Stories by Shirley Jackson (I have never read anything by Shirley Jackson, and would love to, but the reason I took this out of the library was to read The Lottery. The theme of my daughter’s dance recital this year is books (awesome, right?), and her contemporary dance is going to be based on the story The Lottery. So, of course, we have to read it. I don’t know about the other dances yet – we might have some more reading to do.)
- Lavinia by Ursula K. Le Guin (for Book Club)
- The Collapse of Western Civilization by Naomi Oreskes (Novellas in November)
- Resurrection Science by M.R. O’Connor (because I really want to read it even though I don’t have time)
- The Lost Daughter by Elena Ferrante (Novellas in November)
- White Hunger by Aki Ollikainen (Novellas in November)
- Being Mortal by Atul Gawande (for Doing Dewey’s NFBookClub, but I am currently #4 on the hold list, so I’m not holding my breath.)
November can’t be over yet – I have more novellas coming!
