Book list





So I just created this list of books I have to read for next semester (both for classes and for book club) I am really excited about it! So many different works :) I can't wait for the semester to start, though I do need to finish some other readings first :)


Here is the list: 

3/2: Beowulf

6/2: Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

10/2: The Canterbury Tales by Chaucer

24/2: King Lear by Shakespeare

27/2: The Sound and the Fury William Faulkner

3/3: Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift

13/3: [Sic] by Davis Schneiderman

24/3: Hard Times by Charles Dickens

31/3: The Turn of the Screw by Henry James

3/4: Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy vol. 1 by Douglas Adams

24/4: The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

28/4: Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe 


I think this is going to be a great challenge for me. I am especially looking forward to/scared about [Sic], both because it is a very different kind of novel - if you can call it that - than what I usually read (I have heard that it is half pictures, half text) and also because Schneiderman will come to the book club meeting, where we will be discussing the book. 

I have read parts of Gulliver's Travels previously and I have of course also read The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Both will be nice re-reads though :)


So this is what I will be up to for the next couple of months and I am as mentioned before very excited about that :)
