Lazy weekend poll ~ fall reading list, edition 3 :: Now Smell This


Last call…the freebiemeet is open all day Saturday! The splitmeet will start on the 23rd.

Meanwhile, please recommend a great book to add to our fall reading lists, and tell us what fragrance we should wear while reading it.

Or, as always, just talk about something else.

My recent reading:

I devoured a whole bunch of Wodehouse novels and story collections, all of which I had read before: Very Good Jeeves, The Inimitable Jeeves, Code of the Woosters, Something Fresh, Leave it to Psmith, Summer Lightning, Heavy Weather, Full Moon, Uncle Fred in the Springtime and Pigs Have Wings (those last 7 are all in the Blandings Castle saga). The best fragrance for Wodehouse is probably Dior Eau Sauvage.

I loved Kazuo Ishiguro’s Klara and the Sun but have no idea what fragrance I’d assign it: something dystopian I’d probably rather not wear, I guess? I enjoyed two novels from Ali Smith’s seasonal quartet, Autumn and Winter. I finished my “catching up” on Howard Norman with The Ghost Clause, which would call for something like Guerlain Jicky.

I read two mysteries: Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith (aka J. K. Rowling, and it would call for Jasmin et Cigarette by Etat Libre d’Orange) and The Heron’s Cry by Ann Cleeves.

I read almost no non-fiction this month other than a few sections of Isabel Wilkerson’s The Warmth of Other Suns.
