Masterpiece! I'm reading Russian classics, and this is one of my favorite.

I'm not sure it's from the tagged book, since this poem was actually on the inside wrapper of a candy bar sent to me by @Avanders ... But I absolutely love it.

"A magic moment I remember:
I raised my eyes and you were there.
A fleeting vision, the quintessence
Of all that's beautiful and rare..."

To me, that's the best darn way to hear #UGotTheLook . These candy bars all have love poems. That's awesome! #PrinceofJuly @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

A copy, surprisingly well preserved, that belonged to the Brothers Karamazov.

Finally reading this book. Tbh I was intimidated by its size at first, but upon reading it I fell in love with the writing and the characters. Reading this one slowly along with others, so might take me a whole year to finish it! 😂 Anyone else read this? Did you enjoy it? & How long did it take for you to finish it?

Putting in some hours on one of Tolstoy's masterpieces. Every year I pick one project book that I give myself a year to read. Usually something over 500 pages. Anna Karenina is that book this year and I'm just about 200 pages in out of around 1200. #classics #russianclassics #bigbooks #bookchallenges

bookloo This is an awesome challenge and an even better book to tackle. ☺️💞 2y
introvertedbooks @bookloo just say your comment. It's a great way for me to stop putting off books I keep saying I'll read although it didn't really work that well this year. 😔 but what I've read so far I've enjoyed ❤ 2y

I'm addicted... I bought a load of Russian Lit recently with some Christmas vouchers and this book has me gripped. I can't decide if I like or hate H.H, obviously his character is not a nice one really but I almost feel sorry for him! What did you think of the book?
