I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
A few weeks ago the lovely Jenna @book_club_mummajoined me for an InstaLive to talk about her Desert Island Books. We had such a great chat and I decided it was finally time for me to pick up one of her favourites, I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith.
I have no idea why I haven’t read this one sooner, I thought it would be one I’d enjoy and I really did. It is so funny and just charming, it’s been the perfect book to read while I’ve been feeling a little stressed. Every time I’ve picked it up I’ve felt my stress levels fade away.
I don’t tend to read Classics as I never think I’ll be able to connect with them but reading this has made me really want to try a few more as I’m wondering how many other gems I’be missed out on.
Have you read this one, and do you have a favourite Classic you’d like to recommend? Please remember I’m not great with big books so don’t expect me to be diving into War & Peace anytime soon 😂
