And just like that, the third annual Novellas in November is over for another year!
This is the third year that Rebecca and I have formally hosted Novellas in November and your response has been amazing!
At last count, 45 bloggers have taken part, publishing a total of 154 posts. You can check out all the links on my announcement post here.
If you have taken part and don’t see your post the list, let me know in the comments and I’ll add you in.
A big thanks to everyone who took part and made this into such a successful month.
This year we introduced one single Buddy Read which was Foster by Claire Keegan and ten of you reviewed that book, with several more of you reviewing her most recent novella Small Things Like These. Some other popular choices this month were Follow the Rabbit Proof Fence, Body Kintsugi and Maureen Fry and the Angel of the North.
We understand that November is a busy time in the blogging calendar so it was great to see so many taking the time to read and review some novellas and also merging challenges so that Nonfiction November, Australia Reading Month, German Literature Month and Margaret Atwood Reading Month were all covered too!
I really enjoyed taking part this year, even though it looked at times that we wouldn’t make it but we appreciate you all hanging in there and celebrating the novella on our behalf.
The short nature of the books meant that I made a good dent in the 746, knocking another few off the list! My favourite was Happy are the Happy by Yasmina Reza, but I enjoyed all that I read, particularly the translated fiction.
You can check out Rebecca’s wrap up post too and once again thanks to everyone who has taken part and made this such a fantastic month.
What was your favourite novella that you read this month? Have you read about any novellas that you’ve then added to your wish list?
I am a 40 something book buying addict trying to reduce the backlog one book at a time!
