Persephone Reading Weekend Update

I’m very excited to be participating in Persephone Reading Weekend! Yesterday I posted a review of Every Eye, which I actually read about a week ago but was waiting to post my review. I enjoyed it, but honestly, not as much as some of the other Persephones I’ve read. By the way, here’s a list of Persephones I’ve read and reviewed in the past.

I’m currently reading Nicola Beauman’s A Very Great Profession, which in obvious ways complements the novels that Persephone and Virago have reprinted. I’m really enjoyed her insightful comments on women writers and their novels in the interwar years, especially since I’ve read many of the books that Beauman mentions. Unfortunately, however, the “to be read” list is growing exponentially! This is definitely a good book for Persephone and Virago aficionados to read.

As far as the giveaway for The Mystery of Mrs. Blencarrow goes, I’ll pick a winner tomorrow in my roundup of the weekend.

If you’re participating, what are you reading? What are you enjoying most about the weekend?

A Very Great Profession does add exponentially to the wish-list and the TBR list! I read it very early on in my Persephone experience and would love to return to it, to appreciate the insights to the books I have read since.

I think my favorite thing about this weekend is discovering more new bloggers -- more Persephone lovers! And of course I keep adding more books to the TBR list.

I read Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day for PRW and really enjoyed it- hopefully I can find more Persephone titles :-) I'm glad you're enjoying the book you're reading now, too- can't wait to see what you think.
