I am Doing it Again: #Zoladdiction2017 on April
If you haven’t
been familiar with #Zoladdiction, it’s an addiction to any book by my favorite
author: Émile Zola. It’s actually an event—one perhaps call it “challenge”, but
if any Zola-ish thing could have been a challenge, NOT reading Zola is the real
cha...

My 2nd Round of The Classics Club
Yayy… I
have successfully completed The Classics Club Part 1 (March 2012 – March
2017). It was really a huge commitment to read around 100 classics in five
years. When I started it, I kept asking myself, what if I lost my passion in
reading classics in the ...

The Three Theban Plays: The Oedipus Cycle by Sophocles
For me, Greek
plays always have their own charms. Compared to Renaissance’s or any modern
plays, I find Greek’s is more intense in emotion. It always feels like I was in

2016, due to my personal activities. This year I think I would have more time
to reading a...

2017 Victorian Reading Challenge
You know how
I love challenges. I do. But lately I have so many things in life that I no
longer have time to write proper reviews for this blog as usual. I keep
reading, though not as much as I have expected. But the reviews are the most
challenging part ri...

Brona’s Salon: Time for Another Dickens
If you like
to talk about books you are reading, this might suit you well: Brona’s Salon .
It’s a new meme which aims to gather a
group of like-minded bookish people 'under the roof of an inspiring host, held
partly to amuse one another and partly to refine...

Brona’s Salon: Zola’s “Money”
This is my
second participation in Brona’s Salon . It’s a
new meme which aims to gather a group of like-minded bookish people 'under the
roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to
refine the taste and increase the knowledge of...

The Classic Book-a-Month Club 2017 #CBAM2017
The
end-of-year-excitement for book blogger started when bloggers begin to post
their reading challenges or reading groups of the next year. Funny it is that
you were super-excited when planning the reading, but felt under-pressured
while executing the plan...
