Classic Spin #2

It might be the second Classic Spin from The Classics Club, but it was the first one I participated in. The spin selected #6, which for me was Villette, by Charlotte Brontë. I was excited to read it and I'm enjoying it. I did not finish it for today. I wanted to, but Brontë describes everything.  Lucy Snowe is also not the most forthcoming character, so I'm always trying to figure out what she's hiding and what might be hidden from her.  She speaks to the reader like we're having a conversation or that she's writing us a letter (a very long letter).  

But this isn't a review. I'll write one of those when I actually finish the book.

I'm glad I participated in the spin. It got me reading a book that I've been putting off for ages.  I'll probably participate in it again, and maybe I'll even finish the selection.


  1. Oh, I agree. I just finished this book less than a week ago and Lucy can be so difficult to "read," both literally and figuratively, sometimes!

    1. The end was amazing though. The whole book is worth those last 50 pages.
