The Time Will Come is a great meme hosted by Jodie over at Books For Company. The point of this meme is to list a book that has been sitting on our bookshelves unread for too long and we have been meaning to get round to for ages!
This week's pick is:
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
In Memoirs of a Geisha, we enter a world where appearances are paramount; where a girl's virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder; where women are trained to beguile the most powerful men; and where love is scorned as illusion. It is a unique and triumphant work of fiction—at once romantic, erotic, suspenseful—and completely unforgettable.
This was actually the first book I swapped for. I have no idea why I haven't got round to reading it yet (seeing as it WAS the first book I swapped), but I will! I haven't seen the film, but I have heard that it's supposed to be very good. Now that I have the book, I don't want to watch the film before reading it, so I will have to get to it soon!
