novellachallenge_thumbnail.jpgNow that I have broken my reading challenge duck, I’ve decided to plunge into another one, hosted by Trish here. I am a great admirer of both short stories and short novels, and think I will be able to manage the required six novellas between April and September 2008 without too much trouble.

So far I’ve identified the following:

1. Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman [27 May]

2. The Invention of Morel by Adolfo Bioy Casares

3. The Dreaming Place by Charles de Lint [9 May]

4. The Touchstone by Edith Wharton [29 September]

5. Cheerful Weather for the Wedding by Julia Strachey [18 May]

6. A Celibate Season by Carol Shields and Blanche Howard replaced by Provincial Daughter by RM Dashwood [5 August]

7. Rape: A Love Story by Joyce Carol Oates [15 September]

But I reserve the right to change my mind!

Bride of the Book God

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence

If you would like to get in touch you can contact me at brideofthebookgod (at) btinternet (dot) com.
