A sort-of book blog

This is my own personal record of the things I've read. Half of these will be books for uni (I'm a 2nd year literature undergraduate!)

Currently reading

The Woman He Loved Before: She's Out of His Life, But Is She Out of His Heart?
Dorothy Koomson
Progress: 263/462 pages
To the Lighthouse - Virginia Woolf, David Bradshaw

I found To the Lighthouse a little slow and difficult to get into to begin with. As someone who tried to read Mrs Dalloway in lower sixth, and who ended up giving up in frustration, I wasn't especially looking forward to this part of the module. But once you get used to Woolf's prose style, and get into the story, this book is fantastic.


Some of the most striking bits are the saddest. They are not drawn out and lengthy, but short sentences that feel like a punch to the gut. It's hard to articulate any response but 'oh'.


Not an easy read, but worth it.
