Novellas in November 2015: Wrap up

I’ve been posting daily videos for The Short Story Advent Calendar, and enjoying it so much that I made a video for Novellas in November. Check it out:

I read five novellas during the month. Here they are, in very particular order:

  1. The Days of Abandonment by Elena Ferrente
  2. Grandma Nineteen and the Soviet’s Secret by Ondjaki
  3. Death in Venice by Thomas Mann
  4. Blue Skies by Evelyn Lau
  5. The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami

Check out some other bloggers doing Novellas in November, some of whom even posted updates during the month!

    Good on you for doing videos! I’m still amazed I’m putting podcasts out when I don’t enjoy the sound of my voice, but I guess after a while you get used to it right!?

    I can’t tell you yet what my favourite novella is this month, because I’m not finished reading them yet! I’m still waiting on a few at the library. The Days of Abandonment doesn’t even show up on my holds list yet, but The Lost Daughter should be here soon!
    Off to check out your advent video series!
