My first Challenge Update this year was my late halfway-into-2016 update on the Goodreads reading challenge. You can read more about that here!
So here is what I have read so far:
- The Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall
- The Waiting Years by Fumiko Enchi
- A Riot of Goldfish by Kanoko Okamoto
- The Color Purple by Alice Walker
- The Secrets of the Wild Wood by Tonke Dragt
- Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson
- We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
- A Haunted House by Virginia Woolf
- Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
And what a wonderful experience it has been so far! Not a single disappointment yet. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of these books. The Color Purple is my highlight of the year so far, but otherwise it’s hard to pick a favourite. Some of these authors I had read before, many of them had been on my list for forever, and then I am also glad to have tried new-to-me author Shirley Jackson.
I am definitely not going to stop reading classics by women, and recommendations are always welcome!
