Took a good break so I can reset my brain, and this book brings my total count for 2019 at thirty books!! Most I‘ve ever read... An incredible feeling. It‘s very small and cute, so I took a side-by-side as my hand for reference

French Quarter Fiction edited by Joshua Clark is a great anthology about one of America's most iconic cities. I love reading anthologies, but I hate reviewing them. This is a really good one, though. I've read it a few times over the years because it's full of great stories about one of my favorite places on Earth.

Holly @Hooked_on_books - thank you so much for your card and the bookmark which arrived today. So lovely to get home from work ( in minus temperatures!) and get a card all the way from Hawaii.

Did you make the card yourself? It‘s very pretty! And so full of news too - your new flowery venture is certainly exciting and I hope you continue to enjoy it!

BarbaraBB Gorgeous! 1d
Hooked_on_books You‘re welcome! I did make the card. I have various designs I‘ve been trying out to maybe try to sell eventually. Or just send to Littens. Glad you liked it! 1d
squirrelbrain You could definitely sell them @Hooked_on_books - you‘re so clever! 20h
Hooked_on_books Aw, thank you! ☺️ 19h

I‘m back to this book again. I enjoyed the few stories I have previously read, and hope to finish this time.

I wanted to like these. I liked the 2 novels of his that I read. But something didn‘t work. It was like he was writing about something he didn‘t know- like Eloise who can‘t play the cello but is convinced she‘s a virtuoso. 🤷🏻‍♀️

These are the six I hadn‘t read/looked into already that I liked on the #Toblonglist. I was surprised/happy to see Nothing to See Here on the list. That was a real sleeper hit with me.

I checked out the tagged book from my library. I was honestly surprised they had it. Thanks for the tag @merelybookish 👍🏻📚😁

readordierachel I started and abandoned Oval. It left me a little cold. 2d
merelybookish I also checked out what was available and was pleased to find at least 10 titles. I downloaded the audio of 2d
Megabooks @readordierachel Thanks for the heads up! Some of these definitely sound different. 2d

Megabooks @merelybookish Jami is usually a buy for me so I‘m waiting for Christmas gift cards to buy hers in hardcover. What do you think of it? 2d
BarbaraBB Another great post! Some of these six caught my eye too. I made a promise not to but any more books this year.. so I‘ll wait for the shortlist, I hope! 2d
Megabooks @BarbaraBB Thanks 😊 Yes! The long list is really long! I‘m going to see what my library has until the shortlist comes out. 2d

This is my favourite read of Nov 2019. Handcrafted stories that leave you speechless. Loved to see Murakami's version of Gregor Samsa, Justice Well Served! Kafka would be proud to see Samsa getting some well deserved love after a buggy life since 1915 :) Some quotes from this book hit you right at the spot 💘!
Now I have Percy Faith on loop thanks to Murakami!
