Apologies for the lack of posts thus far, I have been drowning in deadlines and exam revision. Being in my third and final year at university is proving to be extremely stressful. One of my New Years Resolutions is most definitely to write more for this blog because I enjoy it so much when I do finally get a chance to sit down and write a pos
Here is my latest book haul that I’ve accumulated since September. I’ve not even completed all the books from my last haul!
1. Severed Heads and Broken Hearts – Robyn Schneider
2. Vivien’s Heavenly Ice Cream Shop – Abby Clements
3. The Night Rainbow – Claire King (£1.58 in Tesco! What a bargain)
4. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – John Le Carré
5. Saturday Night, Sunday Morning – Alan Stillitoe
6. Lucky Jim– Kingsley Amis
7. Complete Plays of Sarah Kane – Sarah Kane
8. The Birthday Party – Harold Pinter
9. The Homecoming – Harold Pinter
10. Money – Martin Amis
11. Look Back in Anger – John Osbourne
The majority of these are actually university books and I have to say I’m really enjoying these modules. One of these modules includes British Writing since 1945 which is one of the most difficult modules and definitely out of my comfort zone. But I really enjoyed Harold Pinter and Sarah Kane which are texts that are included on the module and I hope my passion for them really shines through in my assessments. Other books such as The Night Rainbow have been bought on a whim or because they were on offer and I’m so excited to have added these into my book collection.
In other news, Christmas is finally upon us. Hasn’t the year just flown by? However, I’m honestly not feeling in the Christmas mood, perhaps because I’ve not had a chance to relax and enjoy one of the most wonderful times of the year. Anybody got any Christmas spirit to spare and lend me?
In the hopes that it will put me in a more festive mood, I’m going to listen to “All I want for Christmas” by Mariah Carey. If, like me, you’re struggling to be festive, listen to this and hopefully we can all enjoy Christmas.
