The Classics Club question of the month:
Tell us about the classic book(s) you’re reading this month. You can post about what you’re looking forward to reading in May, or post thoughts-in-progress on your current read(s).
My classics plans for May are
- Margaret Atwood "The Blind Assassin" - this is a totally different Atwood-experience for me, since I have so far read only her dystopias ("The Handmaid's Tale" and "Oryx and Crake"). It is not a fast read and requires a lot of attention. There is very little dialogue in the novel. I am about half way through and taking my time with it, reading now and then. I love it that the story is set in Canada, such a different setting for me personally.
- Charles Dickens "A Tale of Two Cities" - I started it, but then something else distracted me I think (damn you, Women's Prize!). But it's not your regular Dickens-brick, so there is no reason why I shouldn't pull myself together and finish it off in May. Also, Dickens' books have illustrations (insert a childish squeeek)!
- Arthur Conan Doyle "The Hound of Baskervilles" - I joined a readalong for that, which will last for the whole month.
What will maybe distract me from the goal of classics are other books (I blame Sarah and Christine :D).
What will hopefully help me to reach my goal is a week-long readathon.
