I haven‘t read Hardy since college. At the time, Jude the Obscure was one of my favorite novels. I‘ve decided to give Tess of the D‘Urbervilles a go! 📚classicnovels #thomashardy #penguinclassics

I first heard about this novel on Bookworm with Michael Silverblatt back in February. Sthers translated the novel from French to English herself. She‘s also adapted and directed the film version! Really enjoyed this funny, yet at times heart-wrenching epistolary novel. #witmonth #saturdayreading
