This month I'll be whisked away to the land of the 1920's 'Jazz Age', where glamour, finger-waved hair and wild wild parties prevail, as I read Flappers and Philosophers by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It's that time of the month again, where I embark on another Waterstones literary calendar adventure!
The Great Gatsby is probably one of my all-time-favourite reads, so it's great that I've got this challenge as a reason to revisit this great author.
This copy of the book was a gift from my boyfriend for Christmas last year and has unfortunately sat on my TBR pile until now. It's a gorgeous hard back edition and I'll be taking extra care to make sure it doesn't get scuffed during its morning commute in my bag!
It even came with its own tear out bookmark - I think all books should have this included!
I'm looking forward to getting stuck in to this book. I'm very pleased that F Scott Fitzgerald was this months writer as October is my birthday month and autumn is my favourite time of the year - so it's very fitting that the man that wrote my favourite book is showcased this month!
