Post 100! and the Spin Results

So this is my hundredth post! Wow - time flies.

I feel bad I didn't have anything big planned for my POST 100 but oh well. 

Anyway, the Classics Club spin number was.... #20! so I will be reading H. G. Well's The Island of Dr. Moreau shortly.

The goal is to finish it by April 2, which shouldn't be too hard to do, considering that Island is a rather short book. 

Ummm... I have nothing further to say, so this 100th post has been rather anticlimactic, I'm afraid. If you want to read something interesting, here are some of my favorite posts I've written in these last seven-ish months.

Firstly, THIS POST. It is my comparison between Dupin and Holmes that I wrote a few days after I started the blog. I still consider it one of my best and most in-depth posts ever - though it is a bit on the long side.

Second, my post on Mondegreens! Don't know what they are? Check it out! That post was so much fun to write.

Third, a discussion post on swear words in literature, written while reading Game of Thrones
That's all for now, I suppose. Top Ten Tuesday tomorrow!



  1. Oh, lucky you! I got The Seven Story Mountain, which initially was a complete let down, but now that I've started it, I love it. So you never know, huh?

    Thanks for introducing me to Dupin; I'll have to read Poe at some point. And I really enjoyed your post on swear words in literature. You've given me some points to think about.

    Happy reading!

    1. I actually have The Seven Storey Mountain sitting on the bookshelf, but it's my mother's, so I didn't even consider putting it on my Classics Club list. I'm glad to hear that it's good!

      Thanks for reading!

  2. Congratulations on your 100th post!

    I actually bought The Island of Dr. Moreau just last week, it's on one of my challenges. I will read it, but reading the back cover has put me off greatly! :)

    1. Ah yes... the entire concept does seem rather horrific...
      Though I have read other Wells, and they aren't too bad.

      Glad you stopped by!

    2. I've only read The Time Machine, which I loved - have you read that?

      Love your blog, by the way. Glad I've found it :)

    3. Yes, I've read The Time Machine and The Invisible Man. It's been a few years, but I remember enjoying both!

      Yay thank you! I'm so happy you like the blog. :-)

  3. Congrats on your 100th post!

    I read The Island of Dr. Moreau a couple of years ago and I liked it, although I think it's not the best novel written by Wells.

    1. Thanks!

      Which one do you think is his best novel?

      Thanks for stopping by!
