November Wrap-up

So far into December, and I realise I have not yet done the November Wrap-up. I had a really good reading month, reading 15 books. Mainly due to the three challenges I participated in; Nonfiction November, Novellas in November and German Literature Month. Great challenges all of them.



The Library at Christiansborgs Castle in Copenhagen

My own challenge


a nonfiction from my TBR shelves: The Lodger, Shakespeare on Silver Street by Charles Nicoll

  • a fiction from my TBR shelves:Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk by Nikolai Leskov

  • a translated novel outside of the English- and Swedish speaking countries: The Sandman by

  • a classic tale: Metamorphoses by Franz Kafka

  • a book from my Wish list: none


Nonfiction November


I read four nonfiction books. Three of them with a history theme, and one with an economic theme.


  • Beard, Mary - Gudar och människor (How do we Look? The Eye of Faith)

  • Nicholl, Charles - The Lodger, Shakespeare on Silver Street

  • Cervenka, Andreas - Girig-Sverige (Greedy Sweden)

  • Blom, K. Arne/Moen, Jan - Skånska stenar berättar (What old stones tell us)


Novellas November


I was happy to read these books by theme from the host. On top of that I read another three novellas. I will definitely continue reading more.


  • Short Classics - The Sandman by E.T.A. Hoffmann (German author)

  • Novellas in Translation - Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka (original in German).

  • Short Non-Fiction - The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
