Jamelah Reads the Classics: Chick Lit Edition

With March winding to a close, I thought now would be a good time to announce my new reading list for the next installment of Jamelah Reads the Classics. Perhaps you noticed that my last group contained the work of only one woman (Jane Austen), or perhaps you didn’t. In either case, it’s true, and to make up for the oversight, this next round entirely consists of work by female writers. It is Women’s History Month, after all, and while I know that there’s less than a week left to it, I don’t see that as a reason not to stretch out my exploration of the literary output of women from years past beyond the bounds of March. This may be because much of the work on this list has been relegated to dusty library shelves and specialized upper-level English courses and should really get out more, or it could just be that I’ve been thinking about it for awhile and I have a tendency to procrastinate. I’ll never tell.

Anyway, in compiling my reading list, I tried to choose work that has historical and literary significance, so I’m not going to be covering things like The Devil Wears Prada. Instead, I’ll be focusing on important works starting with the earliest extant autobiography in English and winding up with a two-part Bront

    This promises to be a hell of an installment. I’m especially looking forward to the Shelley review.

    Joking! Do not strike me!
