well read

Books that I should probably have already read by now, but haven’t. I ordered these off Book Depository the other week and they recently arrived in the mail. If I had waited a few days longer I would have discovered a discount code. Not that it matters much – these were only a little over £2 each.

    ive read the great gatsby, & the picture of dorian gray (really loved that), but not the age of innocence.. ive heard its good though:) im trying to get through all the classics atm (disadvantage being that once you start you realise how many there are). but theyre all good:) i have that exact copy of the great gatsby too:)

    The Great Gatsby is a good read but do be prepared that it's overrated!

    LAA – same, have a never ending list of books I want to read but there's always a distraction haha

    queen atika – Haven't read them yet so can't really answer. I only have a vague idea what they're about. The books are all set between the late 1800s and 1920s and I'm assuming they focus on society life, relationships, the human condition etc.

    steph – Yep, my aim is to get through all the Penguin classics. And then those "Top 100" book lists. But maybe without all the Dan Brown books haha

    Hermia – Thanks for the heads up! I was actually kind of surprised at how thin the book was when I got it. I haven't even read it yet and my expectations have already slightly lowered haha
