Breakfast at Tiffany's | Truman Capote

First read of Capote & have to say his writing is 🔥 - hilarious, bitchy & so natural (his description of Rusty Trawler is just wicked!) Did NOT know plot of BaT, just the cultural references (Audrey Hepburn in a little black dress etc) so initially I didn't know what I was supposed to feel about HG - and I really didn't know how I did feel...was so not expecting Lulamae! Thus, BaT acquired layers...cont. in comments ⬇️⬇️⬇️

readingjedi Despite the character being thought of as care-free, quirky, aspirational & romantic, I found her desperately sad, struggling, playing a role, hiding her pain and being every so slightly self destructive. Her funny antics seemed like the drunken behaviour of someone acting out. Is it just me? 14h
readingjedi That said, I did absolutely love this novella. The ending is perfect, the reader left with this brief snapshot of Holly's life and wondering what became of her along with the other characters. It's actually what you don't know about her and her life that's most intriguing. 14h
readingjedi I actually found this novella deeper and more thought provoking than the popular imagery of Holly Golightly might suggest. Caveat: I have not seen the movie. 14h
Suet624 Well now you've made me want to read it! I've never really cared to before. 3h

The Professor: A Tale | Charlotte Bront

I really admire Charlotte Brontë‘s characters. The levity of observation alone makes me love them. This novel is an excellent example. I‘m also inclined to think this and not Jane Eyre is the more autobiographical work

Also my baby is now a kindergartener and is mad he doesn‘t know how to read yet. Guess we know what his summer project is! I‘m so excited for him to begin

LeahBergen Aww, look at him! ❤️ 20h

Villette | Charlotte Bront

Oof what an ending and what a lovely book— don‘t get me wrong, Jane Eyre is fantastic but why don‘t more people read Villette or The Professor?!

Speaking of which…happy graduation, my friends! Congratulations to all who celebrate 🎉 my colleagues and I truly love seeing everyone walk across the stage 🎓

I love a bit of satire. Many parts of this book felt like a Monty Python skit or a Mel Brooks film. I‘ve never been able to get behind the whole “everything is as it should be” way of thinking, and Voltaire does a really great job of skewering that philosophy in this very short read. The “tend your own garden” line at the end really stuck with me. I think it‘s very important advice, especially in this time of social media oversaturation.
