Required Reading



Next up in Book Battle 2015 is a novel I should have read in school. I had a particularly hard time with this category. For the most part I’ll read anything put in front of me. I could not think of a “typical” required reading book from either high school or college that I had not already read. Until finally I stumbled upon The Handmaid’s Tale. I took a women’s literature course in college and had a choice between reading Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale or Charlotte Bronte’s Villette and I chose Villette. 

I have to say that I’m very excited to read this book. A co-worker of mine just read it and said that it was pretty amazing. She did mention a very open ended ending that she wasn’t so fond of so we shall have to see. I like some good speculation about what might happen next. And best of all this novel was at my local library. I call that a win-win. Stay tuned for the full review of The Handmaid’s Tale. Happy reading!
