The City of Mist: Stories | Carlos Ruiz Zafon

#AuthorAMonth - November - Carlos Ruiz Zafón:
It was a pleasant surprise to see this on the New in Paperback table at the bookstore because it‘s length is short coming in under 200 pages and there is only a few days left in November to satisfy this challenge. Also, there‘s this caveat…this book puts the reader back in Barcelona and the gothic vibe of the Cemetery of Forgotten Books that began with The Shadow of the Wind.

This is happening today!

Amiable I didn‘t know about this one! Stacking! now
Soubhiville Oh nice! Enjoy! now

The unremitting romantic melodrama of this book! I liked parts of it very much, but some was a bit much and I found it predictable. Also, the treatment of women was def ick. You know how when you spend a long time in another culture and the way others act around you, while culturally appropriate for them, just makes you miss home? Yeah, this book evoked that pretty strongly for me.

The Shadow of the Wind | Carlos Ruiz Zafon

A boy discovers his favorite book in the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, and goes in search of all the books written by the author (sound familiar?). When he learns all the books have been burned, he tries to learn everything he can about the author, uncovering and becoming part of the mystery and corruption in post-WWII Spain. An excellent book, I‘ll read more by this author. I‘m surprised though it didn‘t automatically become a favorite as it ⬇️

Texreader has stellar reviews from Littens with whom I normally share the same opinion about books. I fear it was because I read Murmur of Bees at the same time, and little can hold a candle to that book. Still a great read that‘s been on my tbr too long! #authoramonth (edited) 1d
Butterfinger I just fell in love with this book. I cannot start Murmur because I am having a book hangover. LOL!! 1d
arubabookwoman Looks like the book is resting on a Christmas(y) log cabin quilt. Did you make it? now

Going to call this done! I put The Good Mother and High-Risers in 🐻 mode because my library is 🔥 right now, and I want to save my owned books until I have fewer library options.

Thanks for another fun month, Sarah. #BookspinBingo

Total: 22 completed, 2 hibernation, #AuthorAMonth got returned to library before I could finish it. 🤦🏻‍♀️

I declare this book will be my favorite for a very long time. The lovemaking scenes were so beautiful. The villain was dastardly and someone you could hate and hope his death would happen before the ending. Each character had his/her own story and each one combined to make a beautiful beautiful book. I want Fermín to be a real person and one of my friends. #SeriesRead2021 @TheSpineView #AuthorAMonth @Soubhiville #BookSpinBingo @TheAromaofBooks
