Literary Rediscoveries of 2017

These lists just keep getting longer! Per usual for this time of year, here’s a list of classic literary paraphernalia that was released or rediscovered for the first time this year. I’ve tried to make it as complete as possible, but if you know of any other previously “lost” works that were found or published this year, let me know in the comments.

Bookish Links — October 2017

By now, you’ve probably heard about Jill Bialosky’s memoir Poetry Will Save Your Life, for which she “borrowed” paragraphs from several other sources.

9 Authors Whose Books I Want to Try

1: Victor Hugo                   Unlike a lot of classic lit. fans, I am not overly infatuated with Les Misérables. I started to read it, but only read a small portion of the book and I haven’t made it through the musical yet. But when I needed someContinue reading “9 Authors Whose Books I Want to Try”
