Have you read any previously banned books? I think I've read a few, but I don't remember which ones off the top of my head. I'm very interested in reading Lolita but I'd love to read it in tandem with My Dark Vanessa since I've heard they're quite similar (correct me if I'm wrong)! 📚
I know this is a difficult topic, and I have read the first 30 pages or so before but never committed and finished it. I can say, however, that what we find out about the main character's childhood experience made me so sad and, not to excuse his sexual interest in children as an adult, it does help the reader understand why he is struggling with this love for 12/13 year old girls.
Again, I have barely read any of it yet so I know it could get pretty intense but I'm interested to see how this topic is handled. I have heard that we get more perspective from the young girl in My Dark Vanessa than we do from Lolita's own point of view, so I will definitely be comparing them as I read (hopefully sometime soon - but who knows!).
Have you read either of those books? What are your thoughts? ❤️ Happy Friday lovelies!!!
