The Classics Club monthly meme is another way to bring members of The Classics Club together.
A meme rewind: Pick a classic someone else in the club has read from our big review list. Link to their review and offer a quote from their post describing their reaction to the book. What about their post makes you excited to read that classic in particular?Since it's the first time I participate in the Monthly Meme, I hadn't done this question before. I decided to choose a classic that I love and then read some of the reviews about it. Well, I hit the jackpot right away! I went to read reviews of Anna Karenina, and found Ellie's review.
Ellie blogs at Lit Nerd and her about page convinced me of her awesomeness. In her own words: Ellie, London, Nerd. Her review is funny and spot-on! Let me sample this for you:
What an emotional roller-coaster I mean, PHEW, I feel pretty drained right about now. AK should come with a health warning or something to allow those of a sensitive disposition (by this I mean myself, obviously) to prepare themselves for such an emotional reading experience.With that start, it was impossible to stop reading. And impossible to not follow Lit Nerd from now on!
