  1. This is the third TTT blog I’ve seen this week that mentioned Ali Smith’s Spring. I’d never heard of that book or author before today, but now I’m getting more and more curious about them.

  2. Lovely list, Juliana! Spring is on the top of my list as well and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. Hopefully we’ll both love it. I’m very curious about Freshwater and The Well of Loneliness and look forward to hearing your thoughts. Happy spring reading!!

  3. Great list! I’m listening to the audio of Freshwater right now, and I’m enjoying it a lot. It’s written in an unusual style, but I think it works really well as an audiobook. The Quin and Ernaux also look interesting, so I’ll have to keep an eye out for them.

  4. What an interesting list! The Well of Loneliness is a classic I keep meaning to read myself. I’m particularly interested in reading Esi Edugyan’s Washington Black this spring: I think it comes out in paperback pretty soon here.
