My exams have finally finished until June! I know that I said I was going to post yesterday but my college friends and I decided to go out for a meal in our lunch break, then we stayed in college til fairly late (about 5ish) as our psychology teacher let us have a free lesson to watch The Hangover! Which meant by the time I got home and did bits and bobs I didn't have time to blog! Anyway, I am properly back now and should be blogging more regularly! I'm hoping to do a haul post tommorow depending upon whether a rather exciting delivery arrives so look out for that! :) I also might do an outfit of the night on Friday / Saturday!
As some of you know I study English Literature, which I do enjoy, but it means we have to study 'proper' literature haha! Although I got to choose my three texts for my two coursework pieces, which were:
- Breakfast At Tiffany's by Truman Capote - This is only a short novel but I absolutely loved reading it! If like me you are a massive fan of the film and Audrey Hepburn I recommend you read the book. I must say I was quite surprised at the differences between the film and the book, especially the ending which I won't ruin for you! Did you know Holly is supposed to have short blond hair?!
- The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold - Once again I had seen the film before reading the book, which now I think is much much better than the film! It took me a while to get my head around everything, but the story is so well written and unusual! I'm sure a lot of you have seen the film, which is a love-hate type of thing!
- Lolita by Vladmir Nabokov - First things first, this book is not for the faint hearted and I would not recommend that any of my younger readers read this haha! Some of you may already know the plot, but long story short it's a rather complicated relationship between an older man who fell in love with a girl when they were both teenagers, but she died, so he finds a 12 year old girl called Lolita who reminds him of that girl. In order to get close to her, he later marries her mother, who then dies, so he has custody of her and they manipulate each other etc. If you want to know the full story you can google it or something but I don't want to go into too much detail on here! All I'll say is that it is a very good novel, even though the style of writing is quite hard to get into at first!
So that's a little bit about what I do at college, sorry if it bored the pants off you! Haha! What I'd like to know is whether or not you like to read, and what your favourite books are? My favourites over the past year were the Pretty Little Liars series and Lauren Conrad's (love her!) LA Candy Series - if you were addicted to The Hills, which I was then this is the perfect beach read type of books! I've read all three books and cannot wait for The Fame Game to come out this year!
A haul should be up tommorow (fingers crossed!), do you like these random sorts of posts? :)
