A Suitable Boy Bookathon


I am going to embark on a reading project over the coming year, lead by the lovely dovegreyreader.

Every year, she chooses a ‘chunkster’ that all bookworms have been meaning to read and splits it into manageable sections over the months. She then leads a discussion about it occasionally on her blog – you can find out more here. I came a little late to the Middlemarch project last year which was a shame, but A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth, this year’s choice, is almost as good! I’ve tried to start A Suitable Boy at least twice and always failed. As I’m not entirely sure why I’ve failed and certainly didn’t dislike what I have read,  I would still like to complete it and so DGR’s guidance will be invaluable. I’m also looking forward to feeling part of a community for a little while, as reading such a big book on your own can be both daunting and solitary I think. It will be very nice to have people to chat to about it with who are discovering it at the same time!
