Literary Love 2014: I Love Readalongs!

Visit Doing DeweyFrom IsiLove at First Book!
It's Literary Love 2014, y'all! This week the ladies above and myself will be sharing posts about literary things we love. We want you to link up your own Literary Love posts down below! You can link from any of our sites at any time! One post or a week's worth, we want to know more about your interpretation of Literary Love!

You knew this was coming. You KNEW IT! But it's true. I LOVE a literary readalong. I've found that for those pesky classics that scare me or look intimidating, it's a great idea to read with friends. Also, tackling a long chunky monster like The Woman in White, seems much more manageable when taken in installments.

I reached the conclusion of Epoch Two last night, and I was all like...WTF Woman in White? WTFFFFF???? Because surprises! Melodramatic Victorian ones!

So what am I LOVING in Epoch Two? 

  • The developments in Fosco's character. He's a vile of the best. He's dapper, well-mannered, humorous, and just an all-around entertaining guy. And a beastly snake in the grass. Snake, I tell you!
  • I love the surprises, truly. The turns in Laura's health that lead to THAT THING! With the faking of the THING!
  • I also love Marian's wiliness in this section. She's a rockstar hero for sneaking out on the balcony ledge thing. 
What's still problematic?
  • WOMEN. Although, perhaps this painting-in-broad-strokes thing is resolving itself? So many mysteries surrounding Marian and Laura at this juncture before Epoch Three. 
  • Not much else is problematic. I'm enthralled.
