Howards End Ended

I have FINALLY finished Howards End. It was interesting and more thought provoking than most books I read, but definitely not my cup of tea. I'll give you more of my thoughts later in a super fun Book vs. Movie review (yay!).

It turns out that my book club will be meeting on a Monday when I'll be in class so it looks like I won't have to read Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own. I'm doing a happy dance right now because honestly that just sounded like torture (I'm not an English major, I don't have to read boring stuff). I probably will finish The Awakening, just because I'm a third into it.

Then I'll finish Villette.

Then on to fun stuff published this century! Hooray!

Thanks for stickin with me during that dry spell!

Slow Going

Sorry I haven't finished a book recently (actually I have, but it's a YA and I don't want to fill this blog with one genre) but school has gotten to that point where it's too busy to keep up with reading. Also, I somehow ended up reading four books/novellas/essays at once, none of which I'm really loving. I just got Kate Morton's newest book, The Distant Hours, in the mail and I'm SO EXCITED to start it because I loved her other two. Alas, I have to finish the other 4 things first. So, here's what I'm reading now...

1. Howards End by E M Forster - only 50 pages left

2. The Awakening by Kate Chopin - 100 pages left

3. Villette by Charlotte Bronte - only 70 pages in...countless left

4. A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf - haven't started and I don't really want to, but it's for book club
