So Margaret Atwood Month has started. It’s hosted by Naomi at Consumed by Ink and Marcie at BuriedInPrint. The first week’s prompt is to talk about the first Atwood book we’ve read. I am ashamed to say that I’ve only read one Atwood book: The Handmaid’s Tale, and that not until a couple of months ago (review here). This was an amazing book, and I wish I hadn’t taken so long to read it. I first heard about Margaret Atwood when I was a teenager, and I was asking someone about The Robber Bride, which I found them reading at work. She couldn’t quite describe to me what “genre” Atwood wrote – which now is funny to me. I apparently thought all books had genres. But I bought the book the next day, and still haven’t read it. lol.
I thought this event was a good opportunity to read a little more Atwood – though I will only be able to fit in one book, as I have a lot going on this month. It’ll be Oryx and Crake. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone else’s reviews!
