Interesting subject, excellent writing, and some really weird stories make for a great read. I found it fascinating. I’m not up for writing a whole review on it today, so here are some reviews on “Curled Up with a Good Book” and “Face of Chaos“.
Now I want to read Findlay’s book about jewels, too. I’m not big on jewelry, but I do love stones and jewels. And Findlay is an excellent writer.
This book on color has been on my “someday I’ll read that” list for a while. I’m trying to actually read those “someday” books now. For example…
I just started “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” by D.H. Lawrence, which will complete #11 – Read a banned or challenged book – of the Reading in Wonderland Challenge. I’ve never read this book before, although I read some D.H. Lawrence in school.
And no, I haven’t really gotten to the dirty bits yet. I’ll report back once I have.
Once I finish it, I’ll only have one more book to go to finish R.I.W. I need a book for challenge #7 – Read a classic book you’ve never read and always meant to. Of course, “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” could count for this one too, as it is definitely a classic I’ve always meant to read.
But since I created thirteen challenges, I want to read and report on 13 books. So I want to read another classic book I’ve always meant to read.
Suggestions are welcome. What are some of your favorite classic books? What should I read that I’ve missed?
