Hi everyone!

 

I’m new to the forum and a huge bookworm. 

 

I’m a big fan of non-fiction and the classics, but I’m currently reading “The Luminaries” at the moment. 

 

I’m looking forward to getting stuck in to some book-related discussions on here!

Hi, welcome to the forum! 

 

I really want to read 'The Luminaries', are you enjoying it so far?

 

What are your favourite classics?

Thanks, Hayley!

 

I'm really enjoying it. It took me a long while to get a handle on the plot (there are a lot of characters who are all intertwined in the same story) but, once I did, I really started enjoying it. I happily spent about 4 hours reading it yesterday.

 

I think "Jane Eyre", "Tess of the d'Ubervilles" and "The Great Gatsby" are all up there. I could re-read those three forever.

Hi, welcome to the forum.  Jane and Tess are two of my favourites too, have fun finding your way round here (there's a section on the classics).

I agree, all very good books @handshedown :) although there is a part of Tess I always hate. I won't bother to include spoiler quotes because I think all of us who've read it will know the part I mean!
