Originally published in chapters in a monthly literary journal in 1978-79, this quiet Japanese novel follows a year in the life of a sleep-deprived mother and her child after her husband leaves her. She is not always a good mother, but she does her best. I could relate to her failings, like when she left it to the very last minute to invite guests to her daughter‘s 3rd birthday. The subtle power of this story crept up on me. #womenintranslation

Things are getting tense in The Rose Code!

Ten Women will go into hibernation now that #womenintranslation month is over. I might do the same with the Allende because of WWII overload with Rose Code.

Meanwhile, the Fellowship has made it to Lorien. I love finding new details with each reread. In the last chapter it was the magic, feet-soothing water of the River Nimrodel. Wouldn‘t that be nice to have IRL?

Susanita *gasps* It‘s never too late to start! 😃🧙‍♂️ 10mo
Susanita @Cinfhen Don‘t watch the Hobbit movies. They‘re visually gorgeous but could have told the story with just one. 10mo
Q84 @Cinfhen Me either! 10mo

It‘s good that I picked The Rose Code as my next mystery, even though the book club meeting isn‘t for a few weeks, because it‘s 646 pages!

Ten Women is for #womenintranslation month and #ReadingTheAmericas but it‘s a bit depressing so far.

Children of God is very interesting so far.

Frodo and company are about to leave The Shire.

Cinfhen Wowza!! You‘ve got a chunkster!!! 11mo
Susanita @Cinfhen IKR! Clearly I didn‘t do my research when I voted for it in the poll. Luckily, it‘s mostly fast paced. 11mo

I sometimes get confused keeping track of readathon goals, but I‘m trying again with #RushAthon this month. These are the books I want to read, in no particular order (except for one that‘s a sequel).

-Ten Women
-The Hobbit
-Romantic Comedy
-The Sparrow ➡️ Children of God
-The Memory of Animals
-The Rat Began to Gnaw the Rope
…and maybe more?
