March wasn’t the biggest reading month, but I’m still happily making my way through a few books I’ve been reading for a while. One of which being The Woman in White (Wilkie Collins). I’m really enjoying it, but am only getting through a few pages a day due to the small font and heavy writing style. But I think it will end up being a 5 of 5 stars.
So what did I read this month?
Three Guineas (Virginia Woolf) was a surprise. I thought it was a collection of her short stories, but it was actually an essay about feminism in the form of three letters. I gave it 3 of 5 stars, mostly because I found it fascinating rather than fully agreeing with everything she said. What I appreciate most about Woolf is her perspective on female writers rather than the full-on feminism. I read this as part of my English unit on Engaging with Literature.
For fun I read The A-Z of Us (Jim Keeble) which I gave 4 of 5 stars. The story went where I wasn’t expecting it to go, but I’m not mad about it. It was quite nice to read some light fiction that wasn’t predictable. The characters felt fresh, if a little strange, and I appreciated their quirks and personalities. It was also great to read something by choice considering I’ve been reading so many classics for uni lately.
Well, that’s it! Happy reading!
