Mrs Mac Suggests - What To Read in November

Well.... here in the UK the clocks have gone back, so the evenings are dark and long.  Never mind, this means that the woodburner can be lit if it ever gets cold, for the warmth is still with us, and it needs to be chilly before I light that up!

It's November reading then.  And in November, I and several other bookie friends try a "Remembrance" read.  That is to remember WW1 (which officially ended on the 11th day of the 11th month 1918);  or any book set either before and leading up to, or between that war and WW2 - or set in WW2.

You might like that idea, or you might shy away, muttering, "Oh no! - to heavy for me".  So this month I suggest a choice -

                                   War or Not.

Myself?  For War it's going to be a post WW2 novel -  

  A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson

 and  for Or Not it's going to be a much lighter read -

Campari for Breakfast by Sara Crowe

Enjoy your November reading, whatever it is.
