Mini Update Sticky Post: November 13, 2019

Off my own shelves, I’m still reading Charles Palliser’s The Quincunx and am almost finished Becky Chambers’ third novel Record of a Spaceborn Few.

And, also, it’s CanLit-prizelist season. So I’ve read eleven of the Giller-longlisted titles (all of the shortlisted ones – of course you already know how much I loved Ian Williams’ Reproductionand am picking through some of the other lists (like the Butala collection, stories written in response to some of her favourite classic short stories and also featuring older women as their protagonists).

Naomi of Consumed by Ink and I are hosting #MARM Margaret Atwood Reading Month. We’re rereading The Handmaid’s Tale and reading The Testaments, but anyone who would like to read any other work of hers is welcome to join in.

So many books to talk about! Including what’s currently in my bookbag, notebook, stacks and reading log.

Also, I’m still reading Mavis Gallant, one story at a time. (Which began anew on October 22nd: In Transit.) There are two full collections after this one: join in, if you wish.

How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?

(First time here? Please don’t be shy: there’s no such thing as too much bookchat! Please leave a comment, say hello, talk books!)
