“She would eat the doughnut later, with a glass of red wine.” 💚

I found this to be refreshingly different. 13 stories about a town, really, with Olive Kitteridge as a thread that weaves through all the stories. The writing is beautiful and having just read “A Man Called Ove”, I found Olive to be a good female counterpart to Ove. Olive seemed to have more depth to her and I think I appreciated that about this collection. This book felt atmospheric and I could really imagine the town of Crosby, Maine. I suggest you take your time with this one, it’s not one to speed through but one to savor while drinking a cup of tea or coffee. I read this so I could read Olive, Again and I do recommend reading this series in order ! 💚

  1. Olive, Again was my favorite book last year. I liked it better than Olive Kitteredge! You have something wonderful waiting to be read! I think she saves a donut to have with red wine in that book too, but maybe I’m just remembering the first book!

  2. I put this aside at one point after it came out, but I’ve thought of picking it up again. I don’t love short stories (I’m much more a cohesive novel person) but Olive sounds like a fascinating character!

  3. This is good to know, some books take time to work your way through. I’ll try and not rush myself when I pick it up!
