I’ve failed this month. I’ve probably failed at more important things than reading the Literary Wives book pick, Anita Shreve’s The Stars Are Fire (2017), but I always feel particularly melancholy when I don’t hit my reading goals.
My reading for the past two months has been dominated by academic journal articles and books about South Africa and Botswana. I’m planning a research trip to those countries in May 2019, and a midterm report is due in January to the grant funders, so my research partner and I are busy preparing for that.
That said, you don’t have to miss out on the Literary Wives discussion. Please visit the other bloggers’ sites and check out their posts on The Stars Are Fire.

Also, you can participate in February 2019 when we read They Were Sisters (1945) by Dorothy Whipple, the female author about whom I wrote my master’s thesis.
