Much to my surprise, I have been reading and loving a number of novellas this year. While it is not a format I usually gravitate toward, I am finding myself loving these shorter tales. However, I do sometimes feel that novellas deserve to be full-length novels, and this was the case with Silver in the Wood.
Virginia Woolf is an author I’d really wanted to read more of, having only every picked up Mrs Dalloway. Wanting to read more of her books, I snapped up the chance to read Orlando. Written in 1928, Orlando has been celebrated as one of the landmark LGBTQ+ novels.
I was so desperate to get my hands on a copy of A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. When I finally spotted it in a UK bookstore, I snatched it off the shelf right away, and I’m so glad I did. While there was a ton of hype surrounding the publication of this book, I felt like it was well-deserved.
