2015 book 94

Caroline Blackwood's Great Granny Webster
I one hundred percent read this because Nicole from The Toast tweeted about it, and so of course it was awesome. Semi-autobiographical novels by rich British ladies from eccentric (and ultimately tragic) families are soooo my jam. AND it was short-listed for the Booker Prize, so I can delight in its slightly gossipy tone while still feeling like an intellectual! Anyway, this is a nice short novel that you all should read, and be sure to check out Blackwood's Wikipedia page, which is also a delight. A-.
