My break draws to an end, but there is still plenty of time to read left! Here is where I am at so far…
Look at Me by Anita Brookner – I did a deep dive of this novel on YouTube. Wasn’t planning to, but I think it deserved it. Definitely a downer, so YMMV.
Dune part I by Frank Herbert – I knew what was going to unfold, but the last chapter was still quite moving. 💔 Nigel and I will be recording an update on this soon.
The Unwomanly Face of War by Svetlana Alexievich – Review coming soon. This is one of those books that leaves a lasting mark on your memory.
Daniel Deronda by George Eliot – I haven’t made any official commitment to reading this book, but I am now in chapter 3 or 4 and really enjoying it.
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins (reread) – Technically I haven’t started it beyond opening the cover and looking at the table of contents, but I plan to start it for reals this evening. We just finished watching the 2018 adaptation, which I gave 3.5 out of 5 stars. It had a lot of good points and some big flaws as well. Still I’m glad I watched it, and it has given me some things to look out for as I reread the book.
I have not yet picked up Kristin Lavransdatter III or
my namesake The Unconsoled. I think I may try to marathon through TWIW over the weekend, and then we shall see.
