I'm here with another LBC topic. This was a tough one and I thought I would skip it, but then I got some ideas so I decided to do it. Hope it was worth it :)
But books don't. Books let your imagination work, they give you ideas. So some books can probably be lolita for someone, but not for someone else. That's why writing about this topic was so hard for me.
But hey, here we go:
1) Vladimir Nabokov - Lolita
2) Lewis Carroll - Alice in Wonderland and Through the looking glasss
I cheated a bit and included the sequel because honestly, one isn't complete without the other. The book I have actually contains both stories. Well, this one was obvious, too. We love being inspired by Lewis Carroll and his twisted childish perspective in the personification of Alice in Wonderland. We love cards, chess, mad tea party, "eat me" cookies and basically everything in these two stories has been used as a lolita motif. And no, the book and the Tim Burton's movie don't have much in common. In the first place, the movie has one huge flaw - it makes sense.
3) Jane Austen - Pride and Prejudice
This book has everything we love. Right period of time (almost), pretty dresses, virtuous ladies and charming gentlemen. It teaches you a lot about the 19th century and how did people live back then. But if you don't like sugary lovestories, this is not for you. That's why I gave up on that book (yeah, shame on me).
4) Margaret Mitchell - Gone With the Wind
5) Sophie Kinsella - Confessions of a Shopaholic
Dear ladies, look at the book protagonist and then look at yourselves. Are you really that different from each other? No, except she buys Denny&George and you buy AP. I think it's a funny reflection of ourselves and a reminder that we shouldn't go with our love for clothes too far.
Whoa, it didn't even hurt. And what are your "lolita books" tips? :))
