I am within 80 pages of finishing Thursday Next: First Among Sequels. I should be able to share a review soon.
I am about 70% in on Crime and Punishment, and I have to say that I am just not into it. I will finish it because I’ve gone too far to turn back. My judgment at this stage is that there are really interesting parts leavened by parts I either can’t understand or am just not interested in. It’s running on two stars at the moment.
I am also slowly moving through Mansfield Park, and not because I don’t enjoy it, but because my reading focus is on finishing Thursday Next at the moment.
Following Thursday Next I plan to pick up Pride and Prejudice again, which will serve as the third of my four selections for the Typically British Reading Challenge. In terms of my other challenges, the All About the Brontës Challenge and the Bibliophilic Books Challenge, I’m still thinking about what to read next. My scores stand thusly:
- Typically British Challenge: 2 of 4 (3 of 4 once I’ve finished Thursday Next)
- All About the Brontës Challenge: 2 of 3
- Bibliophilic Books Challenge: 1 of 3 (2 of 3 once I’ve finished Thursday Next)
