Book Challenge Day 16- Favorite Book You Read In School

Posted on

I first read A Doll’s House in high school and was thrilled when I got to read it again in college. It was probably my first “female power” book, which is why I have such an attachment to it. When I first began to read, I was disgusted by the relationship between Nora and Torvald. He was controlling and condescending and she was so weak that she not only allowed this behavior, she encouraged it. It’s not until halfway through the first act that you discover she has the ability to think and act for herself. By the end of the short book, you’re cheering her on.

About Jaclyn

I’m a digital copywriter at an advertising agency- think Peggy from Mad Men but remove the print ads and add a website. Between my family, friends and job I hear a lot of interesting things. I’ve decided to share them and how they inspire me on this blog. There’s no theme or goal in mind and I promise I will not update with any kind of regularity. But hopefully whatever I do put up here will be entertaining, or entertaining enough to add to the “procrastinating at work by checking every mediocre website on the internet” list.
