Thread Topic: So I bought some books...
copy-pasted from my friend group's discord server:
The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas (1844) - This is a book I've read three times over. I don't plan on reading it again, but I likely will at some point and I'd like to have my own copy regardless, so I splurged a little and got a hardcover copy.
Twenty Years After by Alexandre Dumas (1845) - This is the sequel to The Three Musketeers. I have read a few chapters of it before but was never able to finish it. I'd like to eventually own all three D'Artagnan Romances.
Other Voices, Other Rooms by Truman Capote (1948) - I have already read Breakfast At Tiffany's and In Cold Blood, and I absolutely adore Capote's writing style. Not to mention it's a Southern Gothic, which is one of my favourite literature genres. This is the one I'm most excited to read.
Custom Of The Country by Edith Wharton (1913) - Wharton's writing is genuinely some of the best I have ever read. I am convinced she was an absolute genius, and I will take pleasure in reading yet another of her masterpieces. I've read The House of Mirth, which blew my teenage mind when I read it, and after this book I plan to read The Age Of Innocence.
My question to you lot is:
Have any of you read these books? If so, what did you think of them? (NO SPOILERS!)
If not, what kind of books do you like to read? Have you recently bought or borrowed any books you're excited to start?
RichardW123 NewbieI have read all of those books. Each of them are great classics! And you should totally read The age of Innocence. It further reinstates the fact that Edith Wharton IS a great writer.
Yes! Like I said above, that's the one I plan to read after Custom Of The Country. I kinda want to save the best for last, so to speak.
Are you also a fan of Truman Capote?
RichardW123 NoviceYes, I am! I really liked Cold Blood. It was very interesting.
First two arrived today!!!
