(Do we really not have one of these already?)

Anyway, what are you reading currently? What's it about, would you recommend it?


Me? I'm being boring and re reading Pride and Prejudice :P Which is of course fabulous and on your must read before you drop dead list.


Your turn!

Last book I read was Lolita, and I absolutely loved it.
Planning on starting Madame Bovary now but with midterms coming up I don't have any time :(

I'm reading Frankenstein and The Lord of the Rings right now.
We have to read more "literature" for my AP English class, so next on my list is Lolita. :creepna:

I'm reading "A Song of Ice and Fire" now, and "The Hour of the Star".
Both are really good, but aimed at different things.

I've been re-reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky for like a month to get ready for the movie, but then the movie isn't coming to my podunk movie theater and I've had lots of school demands, so...

Yeah. Short book, one month. I rock.

And now you're reading this. And this. This could go on forever. But you'd still keep reading. You still are now. :mj:

Lolita is one of my favorite novels ever! I loved Madame Bovary. I had to read it in its entirety in the original French for a French literature class. :)

It's one of my favorites too!
I actually started Madame Bovary a few days ago, I'm reading it in french (I like reading the book in the original language it was written in unless I can't obv), but people who have already read it told me that she is a lot like me and that the book would depress me so I'm taking it slow lol

Flaubert was such a genius. <3 I've been reading more and more in French lately. It takes me a bit longer, of course, but I just love French literary language. I got a couple of contemporary novellas, which I will soon get around to reading. I saw the English translation of one of them in a bookstore, but I was happy to have spent the extra cash to have the original imported. :)

You guys are so intelligent in the reading department. I'm reading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. Don't judge me, I just love angsty fantasy books, baha! I think of buying leaves of grass by Walt Whitman. It would be interesting to read the poems that inspire Lana's lyrics. Aaand I like poems, always have. I have a book where I write down interesting poems and quotes I come across :smiles:
Seeing your love for Lolita makes me think I should read it too.
