The Little Black Classic edition of The Yellow Wall-Paper actually contained three stories, so I read them all but the title story was definitely the strongest. I would say the stories are ghost stories, although The Yellow Wall-Paper could be read in several ways. For the most part it feels like a woman who could be suffering from paranoia, but then don’t we all imagine things in patterns that aren’t there? I think there’s a recognised phenomenon, whereby people will always try and see faces in things. Anyway, a good one to keep you awake if you’re reading late at night with some dodgy wallpapered walls…

I really enjoyed Anna and the French Kiss, everyone was right, it is a great readathon read. I also dipped into You Say Potato and have read half of The Earth is Singing, which is a very saddening story of a half-Jewish Latvian girl who is living in Riga when the Nazis come to town.

Currently reading: The Earth is Singing by Vanessa Curtis + You Say Potato by Ben + David Crystal
Read: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins + The Yellow Wall-Paper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

The only thing I can think of that it is like the color of the paper! A yellow smell.

    Nice going Ellie! Bloody hell, you're a regular reading machine. πŸ˜›
    I think I MIGHT read The Yellow Wall-Paper now, before it gets late, I don't know. I'm having a little between-book break to sort my drink situation out and get a few little jobs done for the night. πŸ™‚
    Happy reading for the next few hours!
