    • I had never heard of her before, Judith, but really like her style.

      Yeah, no short stories for you, don’t I know it, 😉


  1. Hi Rikki,

    I am not one for short stories either and to my shame I have also never read any of this authors work.

    I loved the synopsis for this book though, especially when it is described as – ‘an unforgettable exploration of isolation and romantic obsession’.

    Together with that short, but sweet teaser line, must surely make this one to be read and savoured.

    It is definitely going on my list and I hope that you enjoy it.

  2. I thought I was in the minority with my antipathy for short stories. And here I am surrounded by like-minded readers!

    I have her Country Girls trilogy on my TBR shelf. Thanks for the reminder!

    And thanks for participating in Book Beginnings on Fridays. I’d like to drum up some more participants, and one idea I had was this: if you are on Twitter, please tweet a link to your post using the has tag #BookBeginnings. Maybe in connection with #FridayReads, if you participate in that twitter event.

  3. Seems like I am one of the few people who like short stories. But, hey, this won’t dampen my spirit, :).

    No problem about the hashtag, will use that from now on.


  4. I did use to be a fan of short stories but I rediscovered them last year… and the last book I read is made of short and very short stories, all about husbands. I am sure you’ll enjoy it, I was mesmerized. It’s called “If I had a husband as small as a fly…” by a Turkish writer, Hatice Meryem.

  5. I did not begin anything 🙁

    I’m still reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed and I hope to have finish it by Monday/Tuesday.

    Good luck with the short stories book. I am not a big fan of them except for school. If a teacher gives us a short story, I love reading it, highlight it, making notes etc. However, I am excited to read Flannery O’Connor’s “Complete Short Stories” soon.
