I’M IN COLLEGE! This means that I had to pack A LOT of stuff to bring with me, including books. Since I’m majoring in English I figured that I’ll be busy reading assigned books for class, so I wouldn’t have much time for reading other things. Because of this, I showed immense self control by only bringing four books with me this semester! They include:
I actually received this book in the mail mere days before leaving for college, making it the most recent addition to this little pile. Alexa from the blog Alexa Loves Books was kind enough to send this fabulous ARC copy to me, so thanks a bunch Alexa!! I started reading this before I left for college and the few pages that I did manage to read were very intriguing, so I’m really looking forward to reading the rest of it!
I first read this book a few years ago, but I really wanted to read it again now that I have more experience with classic literature. I’m about one hundred pages into it, and I totally did not remember how hilariously witty Austen’s writing is! Elizabeth’s parents are so comical, and the entire situation regarding the drama over guys is incredibly entertaining.
I LOVE the television show The Office, of which B.J. Novak played a large role in creating and a hilarious role on the screen. When I learned that he wrote a book I immediately knew that I would have to read it! This collection of short stories has been sitting on my shelf practically since it was released, and I am determined to finally getting around to reading it.
Since I’m also planning on trying to double major in English and Spanish, I thought I would bring along a Spanish translation. I’ve already read this in English and really enjoyed it, so I think reading it in another language will be a really interesting experience. It’ll also make it a little easier to understand because I already know what’s going on in regards to the plot.
