Novellas in November

Busy month with a lot of challenges. I decided though to join Novellas in November which I find interesting. Mostly because I don't really read novellas. This month has helped me find my way into the shorter fiction books. It is very nice to read shorter books as a break with the very long books that seem to enter our lives these days. Thank you to hosts Cathy of 746 Books and Rebecca of Bookish Beck.

To my own surprise I did manage to find something for each of the weeks.

1 – 7 November: Short Classics - The Sandman by E.T.A. Hoffmann

8 – 14 November: Novellas in Translation - Metamorphoses by Franz Kafka

15 – 21 November: Short Non-Fiction - How Much Land Does A Man Need? by Leo Tolstoj

22 – 28 November: Contemporary Novellas - Master Georgi by Beryl Bainbridge

29/30 November: My Month in Novellas/ New to my TBR - The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,

On top of that I read Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk by Nikolai Leskov, recommended by Emma @ Word and Peace.

This week made me discover novellas and how wonderful they are. I think I will continue reading these short fiction. I got a lot of inspiration from bloggers and have saved a few authors and titles for the future.
