Goodreads Monday is now hosted by Budget Tales Book Club. All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.
I hope everyone has had a good start to the week so far. I have had a rather long day but I did manage a bit of reading during my lunch break which is good as I am taking part in the Bookly Readathon over the next few days.
Taking place in the years leading up to the First Reform Bill of 1832, Middlemarch explores nearly every subject of concern to modern life: art, religion, science, politics, self, society, human relationships. Among her characters are some of the most remarkable portraits in English literature: Dorothea Brooke, the heroine, idealistic but naive; Rosamond Vincy, beautiful and egoistic: Edward Casaubon, the dry-as-dust scholar: Tertius Lydgate, the brilliant but morally-flawed physician: the passionate artist Will Ladislaw: and Fred Vincey and Mary Garth, childhood sweethearts whose charming courtship is one of the many humorous elements in the novel’s rich comic vein.
Please drop me a comment if you have taken part in Goodreads Monday and I will head over for a visit.

Middlemarch is on my list of books to read during 2023. I read it over 30 years ago and remembering enjoying it so I thought it might be a nice idea to revisit.

I’ve never read it before but I have wanted to read it for so long. Maybe I will manage to read it this year as well.
