It’s been a little while since I did a monthly round-up mostly due to forgetfulness! November was a varied reading month at Novel Insights with classic gothic vampire tale, a Pullitzer winner about a hermaphrodite, autobiographical fiction set in the 30’s and an ultra-modern duo of Brett Easton Ellis’s earliest and most recent books.
Here are November’s reads in order of enjoyment:
Middlesex, by Jeffrey Eugenides
Our Spoons Came From Woolworths, by Barbara Comyns (7 out of 10)
Less Than Zero, by Brett Easton Ellis (7 out of 10)
Carmilla, by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (7 out of 10)
Imperial Bedrooms, by Brett Easton Ellis (6 out of 10)
If On A Winter’s Night A Traveller, by Italo Calvino (6 out of 10)
Have you read any of the above? What are your favourite books of the month?
