Madame Bovary

As you know there's a Madame Bovary group read over here. I've decided not to join in with it as I only recently read it but I wanted to mark it.

'She was the lover in every novel, the heroine in every play, the vague she in every volume of poetry.' Gustav Flaubert Madame Bovary


I will be joining Frances for the Dr. Zhivago group read. I've been wanting to read this novel for a long time.


  1. I'm reading it for the first time! It's a wonderful experience.

  2. this is something i've meant to read for so long - no time for this readalong though unfortunately! But I'll definitely be joining in with the Dr Z one - looking forward immensely, it sounds like a great book to a readalong for, and I've read a couple of Russian novels this summer which I absolutely adored, so can't wait to get stuck into another. Yay!

  3. I'm currently reading Madame Bovary for the second time. I have been very tempted to join the Dr. Zhivago read along, but I'm not sure if I can, sadly.

    What a beautiful picture for this post :)

    I'm new to your blog, I found you through the readalong somehow, I don't know exactly how, but I'm very happy that I did.


Ooh how lovely more stripes on the page...
Thank you for taking the time.
