November is fast approaching, which means time to start strategically planning my reading (because it’s German Literature Month, Novella November and maybe Nonfiction November – has there been an announcement about NFN yet?).
Ordinarily the only rule is that the book must be originally published in German but Lizzy has relaxed this for one week of the challenge to allow for authors whose native tongue was/is German, but who chose/choose to write in an adopted language*.
Lizzy has provided some prompts but I will probably read free-range, in an attempt to tackle the TBR stack and create some overlap with Novella November.
I’ll be choosing from the following –
Flights of Love by Bernhard Schlink
The End of Days by Jenny Erpenbeck
Go Went Gone by Jenny Erpenbeck
Beware of Pity by Stefan Zweig
Red Love by Maxim Leo
The Bureau of Past Management by Iris Hanika (NovNov23)
The German House by Annette Hess
Stella by Takis Würger (NovNov23)
Love in Five Acts by Daniela Krien
*Flotsam by Meike Ziervogel (NovNov23)
Love Novel by Ivana Sajko (NovNov23)
But I might also do a little bit of pre-challenge shopping from V&Q Books 🙂
