Frost In May | Antonia White

I awoke to a fresh blanketing of snow this morning 🙄 so this seemed like an appropriate title to finally pick up and start.

This 1933 novel was the first book to be (re)published as a Virago Modern Classic. 🍎

batsy Oh no! However, great excuse to start this book! It's been on my TBR for ages 😆 #whatsnew 5mo
UwannaPublishme Oh my! 😲We‘re having the craziest weather this year. 5mo
TrishB Snow 😱 5mo
RaimeyGallant We got snow yesterday, but not enough to blanket anything. :) 5mo
Weaponxgirl First time I read this I hated it because of what the character goes through, then I couldn‘t stop thinking about it for days afterwards and realised how amazing it was to have made me feel that way. My obsession with viragos had been never ending from then on. 5mo
LeahBergen @batsy @rubyslippersreads I‘m about halfway through and super impressed. I‘m findings the whole early 1900s convent school story appallingly fascinating (probably because I‘m NOT Catholic so it‘s all new to me 😆). I heartily recommend it. 5mo
LeahBergen @Weaponxgirl I‘m so invested in the story at the halfway mark! Was this your first Virago read? I‘m a big fan! 5mo
Weaponxgirl This was my second after this one. Then I was hooked from then on. There‘s three more after this one that are also semi autobiographical and unofficially following the same character that I love. 5mo
LeahBergen I recently read All Passion Spent, too, and I‘ve already been eyeballing the rest of Antonia White‘s books in this series. 😆 @Weaponxgirl (edited) 5mo
