I posted my list of 20 book picks for The Classics Spin a week ago, and today The Classics Club announced the winning number: 14! Number 14 on my list is Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf, one of the books I am most intimidated by and also the most curious about.
I read Woolf’s To the Lighthouse for my high school AP English class and really struggled with it. It seems that most people either love Woolf’s work or don’t “get” it. I’ve been really curious lately as to which camp I would fall into should I try reading her again. Now that I’ve aged five years since last reading her and my reading tastes have developed quite a lot, will I enjoy Woolf’s writing, or will I still be frustrated by a lack of understanding of what’s going on? I’m both nervous and excited to find out.
The challenge asks for participants to read their chosen book by April 1, and that will be my goal.
