预测我会给5星的小说

因为看了jen campbell最新的油管视频。就学她也来列一个在自己的TBR(To Be Read)清单上,可能会给5星的小说,换句话说,我很期待去读的小说,希望今年年底都能读了。年底可以来回顾一下。另外我近年来给小说打分越来越严苛,4分已经很高,5分小说一年有两三本就不错了~

Lanny
Max Porter / 2019 / Faber & Faber

这本已经有友邻读了很喜欢,jen campbell也说她超级喜欢,吃了各种安利,所以买了一本还没寄到。而且我完全不知道这是关于什么的小说就买了,但总有一种我也肯定会喜欢的迷之预感www

Plastic Emotions
Shiromi Pinto / 2019 / Influx Press

这本小说是基于Minnette de Silva的生平而写的,Minnette de Silva是斯里兰卡第一位女性建筑师,看介绍说:Moving between London, Chandigarh, Colombo, Paris and Kandy, at a time of communal violence in Sri Lanka, the rise of the civil war, and troubles with building a brand new city in north India, Plastic Emotions explores the life of a young, trailblazing south Asian woman at a time of great political turbulence across the globe. 听上去非常有意思了!!如果写的也不错的话,肯定是5分,如果写的一般或者比较干的话,这种题材起码也能给3.5到4星吧。期待一下。

Reservoir 13
Jon McGregor / 2017 / Fourth Estate

这本也是友邻读了很喜欢,我看到一些好评,犹豫要不要买的时候,读了一下试读,一下子就被吸引了,买来还没读。故事关于在冬天的一个英国村庄,一个十几岁的小女孩失踪,大家去找她。。。这种设定对我真的是完全没有吸引力。但是因为开头写的真的很好,觉得或许会喜欢,冬天再来读。

Circe
Madeline Miller / 2018 / : Little, Brown and Company

大名鼎鼎啦。期待一下,朋友说写得好,jen campbell也推荐,友邻说是奇幻网文风哈哈哈哈哈,希望最近可以读。

We Are Made Of Diamond Stuff
2019 / Dostoyevsky Wannabe

这本大概是伦敦书评书店某周的bestseller,看简介感兴趣就买了。简介写:We Are Made Of Diamond Stuff is an innovative and critically British novel, taking issue with the dream of national belonging. Set on the Isle of Wight, a small island off the south coast of England, it collides literary aesthetics with contemporary working class cultures and attitudes (B.S. Johnson and Reebok classics), works with themes of empire, embodiment and resistance, and interrogates autobiographical material including the queer migrant experience. 我要看看是怎么innovative / critical法,还有是怎么把工人阶级,酷儿移民和文学结合在一起。感觉这种剑走偏锋的小说,我不是非常喜欢,就是很不喜欢。goodreads上没什么人读但分数很高啊。
