  2. Play Dead by Angela Marsons-4.5 stars

      haha I have a ton of ARCs from NetGalley so this week I decided to read all the ones that are less than 200 pages. Out of the 6, 4 were small backs at around 180 pages.Oh I was home all weekend too:-) Thanks Julianne for stopping by and commenting. Happy reading 🙂

    Wow that is an achievement! I know the feeling of reading novellas, it’s so good! So I am reading The Bridge of Beyond by Simone Schwarz-Bart, a Guadeloupean writer, republished as a NYRB classic, I recently finished The Looking-Glass Sisters by Norwegian writer Gohril Gabrielsen and next up will be A Season in Rihata by Maryse Condé, (French-Guadeloupean) one of my favourite writers. It’s #WITMonth so I’m reading a few books by women in translation.

      I have never heard about any of the books that you have mentioned but I am intrigued. I love their diversity and the fact that they represent writers from different cultures. WIT Month seems like a great idea to help diversify one’s readings. I hope enjoy all the books. Happy reading and thanks for stopping by:-)

      Thanks Faith, I picked the short ones first and read 4 of them over the weekend. My NetGalley TBR has been overflowing so I am making an effort to reduce it and at-least get to 80% feedback rate:-)Happy reading to you too.
