November AlphaKIT: S and Y
Join LibraryThing to post.
Welcome to AlphaKIT for November (already!)
The rules are... none! Use the letters however you like to choose your reads for the month. Well, okay, there is one rule: Have Fun!
November AlphaKIT letters are : S and Y.
Please remember to update the wiki and enter books alphabetically: https://wiki.librarything.com/index.php/2019_AlphaKIT#November:_-_Letters_S_and_...
I was a bit worried about Y, but then I found "My Cat Yugoslavia" by Pajtim Statovci buried in the virtual TBR shelf.
>3 majkia: My greatest triumph was a couple of years ago when the author's name and the title each contained a double.
Lots of options for S...
For Y, I own one, and the others on my tbr, my library doesn't have, so that leaves the one I own:
- The 5th Wave / Rick Yancey
I'm planning to knock out both letters with Tessa Dare's Do You Want to Start a Scandal.
This list of possibles is a bit more manageable!
The Woman in Cabin
✔Bear in Love by Sam Loman
First Hit of the Season
Have Yourself a Beary Little Murder
The Woman in Cabin 10
✔Killer in the Carriage House by Sheila Connolly
Knot What You Think (A Quilting Mystery)
Lady Risks All by Stephanie Laurens
Little Shop of Found Things: A Novel
Michelangelo : the frescoes of the Sistine Chapel
Murder on the South of France
✔Murder with Cherry Tarts by Karen Rose Smith
One Last Summer
Permanently Booked (The Ladies Smythe & Westin)
Spark of Light: A Novel
Street of the Five Moons
Unto Us a Son Is Given (Guido Brunetti)
Although I started it yesterday, it's continuing into November so I will put here "1666: Plague, War, and Hellfire" by Rebecca Rideal
I started reading Sword of Shannara last month but decided it would work even better here for S.
I'm about to start Don't You Forget about Me by Mhairi McFarlane for my "Y" book.
I'm currently reading Fast Food Nation (by Eric Schlosser) - This NF book about the fast food industry has been off and on my TBR stacks ever since it was published seventeen years ago! I decided to finally take the plunge with the caveat that if it came across as too dated, I would move on but so far it's still relevant...
>20 VivienneR: that's a Kaminsky I have not read! Nice to see someone reading his books.
I re-read Sarah, Plain and Tall which is one of my fave books of all time.
>28 LadyoftheLodge: did you know there are several sequels to that story? I've read them and they're all good.
For "S" I read Printer's Devil (aka Author Unknown) by Clemence Dane and Helen Simpson. It's an enjoyable, literate, light novel with some mystery and romance.
I completed A Year Down Yonder by Richard Peck. I love this book and have read it several times. I want to be Grandma Dowdel when I am old!
