Oh wow, flicking back over the last few books I’ve read it seems like ages ago since I last reviewed a book - oops. I have still been reading, promise. I’ve read some great books and will be reviewing them soon, including:
More Than This - Patrick Ness
Aristotle & Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe - Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Charlotte Gray - Sebastian Faulks
Collected Poems - Wilfred Owen
Death In Venice - Thomas Mann
White Devil - John Webster
The Duchess Of Malfi - John Webster
The Wife Of Bath - Geoffrey Chaucer
As you can probably guess, more recently I thought I’d explore pre-1550s literature, which has certainly been an escapade, if nothing else. I’ll let you know with reviews in the next couple of weeks :-D
I’ve been thinking about expanding the blog a little - including some of the book to film adaptations I’ve enjoyed recently, some more discussion of my literary opinions (why I love books in translation, the importance of interpretation and updating the classics) as well as reviews of plays and dramatic performances in their own review as opposed to slotted into book reviews.
Hopefully, I’ll be seeing a lot more of you in the coming year (as a student new year resolutions start in September with the hope of a refresher of resolutions in January) :-D
Lots of love,
Right, a lot’s happened since I last spoke to you like this, so I’ll do a list.
1) I’ve overhauled the design - tell me if you like it or not
2) We’ve completed Rainbow Reads …
3) … Which you can find the master post for on the COMPLETED CHALLENGES PAGE which lists all the books and puts links to their reviews.
4) Next challenge is WORTH THE HYPE? In which I will review books which have been heavily hyped either by reviewers or through advertising schemes.
I will soon be uploading Non Pratt’s Trouble which I’ve just finished…you’re in for a treat.
