I'm happy to announce that in April I'll be participating in this lovely event...
In other words, during the month of April, I'll be reading Emile Zola!
I'm sorry to say that I've never actually read any Zola...shame on me. So this event will be a great opportunity for me to read Zola! (I actually recently wrote a post looking for suggestions on a good introductory Zola book, so it's been on my mind.) I just recently added Germinal to my Classics Club list, so that's the one I'm goint to read. I'll probably stick with the first level, "Mahuede," which will only require me to read one book.
See you in April!
Thanks for participating, Emily! You'll love Germinal! ;)ReplyDelete
Thank you! It looks like it will be a great event!Delete
Can't wait to read "Germinal" with all the other wonderful people :)ReplyDelete
Me too! I'm glad I chose that one, it looks like a lot of people are reading it.Delete
Germinal is WONDERFUL. It's dark, but it completely sucks you in. There's also a great movie adaptation if you can get your hands on it, starring Gerard Depardieu. I think it's only available on VHS.ReplyDelete
I'm excited to read it! I'll definitely keep a look out for that adaptation. Maybe someday it will make it to DVD or Netflix; I don't have a VHS player...Delete
Count me in for Germinal too. It's one I've read before but unfortunately I have almost completely forgotten it. I think I counted at least 9 of us reading it for April.ReplyDelete
I am going to be participating in Zoladdiction too.ReplyDelete
I am hoping to finish two books during April. Like you, I chose Germinal and my other choice is The Masterpiece.
