My reading list for this month.
1) The Angel at the Grave by Edith Wharton.
The Angel at the Grave by Edith Wharton is a short story, that is a part of her compilation of short stories Crucial Instances. I liked reading The Age of Innocence by Wharton, so I am interested to read this story. Pauline Anson is the protagonist of the story, who has dedicated her life to keeping alive the legacy of her grandfather.
2) If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern.
I read P.S.I Love You years back and loved it. This book has been on my shelf for a while. Finally, I have picked it up. If I Could See You Now by Cecelia Ahern focuses on the life of Elizabeth Egan. She is serious and responsible, the opposite of her dysfunctional family. Her sister has left her son, Luke, in Elizabeth’s care. When Luke’s grown-up friend Ivan enters the picture, things start changing for Elizabeth.
3) Agnes Grey by Anne Brontè.
Agnes Grey by Anne Brontè follows Agnes Grey, a governess; she finds work amongst families belonging to the English Gentry. The Grey’s are suffering a financial crisis. Agnes is eager to prove herself to her family and decides to contribute; she finds work as a governess. The book starts off a little slow, so it is taking me a bit of time to get into it. Although, it is definitely holding my interest.
4) The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare.
I have wanted to read The Taming of the Shrew since I saw 10 Things I Hate About You. I have seen that movie multiple times, so I am aware of the main storyline somewhat. Reading Shakespeare takes time, especially since my edition isn’t an abridged version. It is interesting and funny. I am enjoying reading it albeit slowly.
