  1. I had totally forgotten about Mrs Dalloway! I tried reading Lolita, but it's just not for me. Very, very wordy. xx

  2. I'll keep that in mind :) I've just finished Crime and Punishment and absolutely adored it so I'm keen to try out some more Russia Literature.

    Anyway, it'll be years before I make my way down to Lolita ha! xx
