Six for Sunday is a bookish meme created and hosted by Steph at A Little But a Lot.
I’ve often seen posts of this meme over on Corner of Laura and have always intended to join in, so I’m doing so now for the month of November.
This Sunday’s topic:
The November topics seem to be fall themed, so we’re kicking things off with the bright color associated with autumn. Here are some orange books I own and probably haven’t read… yet.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward
The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See
Gorilla and the Bird: A Memoir of Madness and a Mother’s Love by Zack McDermott
Beauty and the Beast by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont, illus. by Agnese Baruzzi
Of these, the only one I’ve read is Sing, Unburied, Sing, which I didn’t like much because it didn’t interest as much as I thought it would. I’ve already forgotten much of what it’s about, but it’s set in the south in present day, I think, and I know there’s a ghost. The vibe of it reminded me of Toni Morrison’s books.
There’s only one children’s picture book on here — Beauty and the Beast — which has cut-outs, and one nonfiction — Gorilla and the Bird, which I might read in November, but don’t hold me to that. The Alchemist and the Joy Luck Club are both modern classics.
