October Book Club



Last month, I read The Queen's Lover, about the affair between Marie Antoinette and Count Axel von Fresen.  I wasn't a huge fan.  It was super interesting to learn more about the time period and the events surrounding Marie Antoinette's execution, but the narration was just not there for me.


This month, I'm going to be reading Lolita, by Vladimir Nabakov.  I've always wanted to read this book and have never gotten around to it, so now is the time!

What are you reading this month?

  5. I was reading that book also) Though I can't say it's one of my favourite. Just it's kind of classic and everyone should be acquainted with it))))
