The HUGE TBR Readathon conclusion, and life
So, I am almost a week late concluding this, but my finals for my summer semester kept me quite busy!
Here is how it went : my goal was 7 books, and though I didn’t get to it, I am quite happy with what I did considering all the studying!
- The girl who could fly, by Victoria Foster (really cute read!)
- Killer by Sara Shepard
- Heartless by Sara Shepard
- Demon Princess : Reign or Shine by Michelle Rowen
- Pages 142 to 166 of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice
- Read the first 47 pages of Notes on a Scandal by Zoë Heller (excellent, by the way!)
I don’t know what’s up with me and Jane Austen, but I have been trying really hard to finish Pride and Prejudice for a year now, but I have a hard time keeping up with it! It’s my first time reading it completely, but I find my reaction surprising considering how much I loved her other novels I read as a teen. It’s not even that I don’t like it, but like Meg said on another post, I have kind of an ADD problem with this book. I have no idea why, but it makes me kind of sad. Maybe summer will put me in a lighter mood and I’ll be able to concentrate on it?
Talking of summer, now that the summer semester is over, I can concentrate on some more fun reading, but also on some studying (I think I’m masochistic or something). My art history Master is a year from now, but I’m doing the Honours branch of the B.A.C. and by fall, I’ll need to have a pretty good idea on what I want to work on. Not precisely, but generally.
So, I decided that I would take the time this summer to read on the subjects that interest me the most (politics into paintings, propaganda, war photography, gender studies, mostly!) so that I can get a better idea of what I want to do. I’m really looking forward to it! I already went to the library and grabbed Linda Nochlin’s Women, Art and Power and Other Essays, which I’ve been wanting to read for a while. I can’t wait to put my nose in it!
