Hey Lovebugs, I know it’s been a while since my last post, but I certainly haven’t forgotten about you. If you haven’t heard it before, you’re going to hear it now. I’ve added English as my second major, which is honestly super fitting for me but… also super stressful.
So you may have noticed I haven’t had any recent book reviews up, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been reading. Trust me, I’ve been reading.
My African American Lit class has us reading 20 to 30 pages out of our textbook every week. I just finished reading three books for my Intro to Lit class and we’re currently working on our fourth. This semester is definitely not what I’m used to.
It feels so weird being away for so long, so here’s some of what I’ve been reading these past few months:
Intro to Lit
[Insert] Boy by Danez Smith
Kindred by Octavia Butler
Beloved by Toni Morrison
And coming up:
Fun House by Alison Bechdel
African American Lit
The Norton Anthology of African American Literature
Volumes 1 and 2
We’ve read several essays, short stories, and plays from this anthology. It has been quite the wild ride.
Sula by Toni Morrison
Platitudes by Trey Ellis
That’s all in terms of what I’ve been reading for my classes. I tried fitting in pleasure reading, but it’s been tough between classes and work. I’m looking forward to winter break to see what comes out of that.
