So, we have begun our Lolita adventure. It’s early yet for an opinion, but I like it so far.
I thought I might drop by and put that list of books down that C and I are going to work on in the next year or so. We’ll alternate them and not go in any particular order.
Lolita by Vladimir Nabakov (Yay! We’re already reading this.)
Inferno by Dante Alighieri
Othello by Shakespeare
Hamlet by Shakespeare
Macbeth by Shakespeare
King Lear by Shakespeare
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
Night by Elie Wiesel
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Persuasion by Jane Austen
I actually read four of these books in high school. Thanks Ms. F! I really liked those reads, but wish I had paid more attention instead of speeding through them at ungodly hours just to get some content and not be lost in class. The life of an over-achieving high-school student is exhausting. I’m excited to re-read the ones I have read, and I am happy to expand my literary education with the new ones!
I’m open to suggestions!
