Lucca's list :



1. The French Lieutenant’s Woman by John Fowles – Eerily, this is because I think I can be Sarah. But that aside, this one’s a clever book. It’s like a curious cocktail that made me chuckle, bite my lip in melancholy, and pause now and again with furrows on my forehead.

2. A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth – Because I want to fall in love this way, though not under the circumstances. And I loved the way the verses lulled me.

3. Breakfast At Tiffany’s by Truman Capote – There’s a bit of Golightly in me. And it’s not limited to the cat.

4. The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro - I wonder if the ending would've been different had I been Miss Kenton.

5. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott – I still go back to the book to battle my blues. I still go back to the little wisdoms in it.

I love Little Women, too. Jo March was one of my literary heros growing up.

She still is. I wish all closures are like that: with an umbrella, snow, and a kiss!
