I’ve only bought three new books in November – I’m making room for the books I hope to find under the Christmas tree 🙂 The first one is Michael Cunningham’s most recent novel The Snow Queen. I honestly don’t know what to expect of this one. Cunningham’s early novels, like The Hours and Specimen Days, are among my favorites, but I haven’t cared much for his more recent novels, like By Nightfall. Of Human Bondage is a classic I’ve wanted to read for a long time. Since reading Gigi and The Cat, I’ve wanted to read Colette’s Claudine series. I found the first installment Claudine at School on Amazon – a really smelly edition 😀
Have you read any of these?

Jeg vil jo læse Colette, så er på jagt 😉
De andre har jeg heller ikke læst, men glæder mig da til at høre din mening.
Og jeg glæder mig til at dele min mening med dig, Charlotte 🙂
Snedronningen er så fin, så den opført i Teater sidste Jul 😀
The Hours is one of the most brilliant novels I’ve read, Ms. Woolf, I’m sure is very honored to have her styled so beautifully mimicked and elaborated. By Nightfall seems a bit self-indulgent to me, no new ground was broken. As for Specimen Days, it’s been on my shelf for so long, unread, still brand-new from being bought second-hand.
P.S. Love your red party dress 🙂
I LOVED The Hours – I think I’ve read it about 3 times 🙂
