Jillian recently created a list of books that have impacted her life and indicated that she would love to see a similar list from other bloggers. Here is my list:
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath / Ariel by Sylvia Plath / The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
Bluets by Maggie Nelson
Germinal by Emile Zola
Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter by Simone de Beauvoir
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
Jane Eyre by Jane Brontë
The Waves by Virginia Woolf
The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
I think I’d like to write about each of these books individually to really capture what they mean to me and how they’ve shaped me.
I tell you what, let me know in the comments (or via Tweet or email) which book you’d like for me to talk about first. I’ll add it into the blog rotation and write a bit more deeply about each book. I also may think of a few others in the interim.
