There are never enough reading events, right? I just heard about Novellas in November, hosted by Rick over at Another Book Blog and Laura over at Reading in Bed. The idea is simple: to read novellas throughout the month.
Here is my TBR for the event (as you can see, some of the books will overlap with German Lit Month)
- The Mussel Feast, by Birgit Vanderbeke, tr. Jamie Bulloch (2013. Original: Das Muschelessen, 1990)
- Die Kieferninseln, by Marion Poschmann, not translated (2017)
- Death in Spring, by Mercè Rodoreda, tr. Martha Tennent (2009. Original: La mort i la primavera, 1986)
- So Much for That Winter, by Dorthe Nors, tr. Misha Hoekstra (2016. Original: Det var så den vinter, 2016)
- The Kreutzer Sonata, by Leo Tolstoy, tr. Isai Kamen (2003. Original: Крейцерова соната, 1889)
- House of the Fortunate Buddhas, by Joao Ubaldo Ribeiro, tr. Clifford E. Landers (2011. Original: A casa dos budas ditosos, 1999)
- Nihilist Girl, by Sofia Kovalevskaya, tr.
- Herland, by Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1915)
- The Blue Room, by Hanne Ørstavik, tr. Deborah Dawkin (2014. Original: Like sant som jeg er virkelig, 1999)

That’s it, folks! Could you recommend me some more novellas?
