This Week In Books (20th January)

 

thisweekinbooks

 

I came across Lipsyy Lost & Found ‘s This Week In Books weekly post and thought it was a great idea to keep track of what is in my bag every week.

 

NOW: Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë
It’s been on my reading list for ages so I’m glad to finally get to it.

THEN: Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov
Next time, I’ll think twice before taking out a book from the library just because it was mentioned on TV. I couldn’t bring myself to finish it. It’s the second book I couldn’t finish this month, it makes me kind of sad.

NEXT: The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne
A new semester means compulsory reads, this was on top of the list, another classic I have never read.

The next weeks will be filled with compulsory reads, although I’ll do my best to wedge in a few books of my choice.

    1. I feel I cannot plunge in a story as deeply with classics than with contemporary books. I just can’t connect to the world and/or story. I enjoy reading them but I’ve never lost track of time or stayed 5hours straight on my bed/couch for any of them. Maybe we haven’t found The One 🙂

  1. Jane Eyre is fabulous. Lolita- ughhh- I hate that book. Not cos it’s badly written, but I must have wondered a gazillion times why he wrote that book. The first time I tried to read it I gave up, the second time I only finished it cos I had to for uni. But honestly, that book holds the record for number of times I threw it across the room while reading it 😦 I’ve wanted to read the Scarlet Letter for ages though

    1. I asked myself the same question a lot during the 70 pages I manage to get through! I don’t see the point of it. I hope The Scarlet Letter is as good as they say, I’ll try and review it
