Currently Reading (1)

College is really hindering my reading progress…

I’m currently 8 books behind on my Goodreads goal.

I haven’t read that much for fun because I have to read SO MUCH FOR SCHOOL. That English Publishing major life.

I sometimes don’t feel like reading for fun *tragic* because of all the reading for class. Vicious cycle.


Frankenstein – Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

Frankenstein

I’m currently reading Frankenstein for my Foundations of the English Major class. We’ve been having to speed through it because my professor spent too long on Middle English texts. Love the organization skills in college.

I’m actually enjoying this book! I’m currently 65% of the way through this, but have to be done by Wednesday and write a 4 page paper about it by Friday. A lot of work to do still but it’s an interesting story. I’m kind of confused because the creature that Frankenstein creates can speak well. He was never taught but can hold conversations and can read. That seems a little far fetched to me. I mean any more far fetched than creating life? Maybe not, but I think he should be explained a little bit more.

 

Ivy Introspective (The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy #2) – Kellyn Roth

Ivy Introspective  (The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy #2)

I got sent this book by the author and it is the second book in The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy series. I think I gave the first book three stars, review here. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first book but decided to give the second book a try.

I feel like I’ve read this already! It’s so weird. I don’t know if I started this and just forgot I did, but I feel like I’ve read some of the sentences before. Not just, ‘wow this seems familiar’ but more like ‘I’ve literally read this before did I finish it or did I just stop I’m so confused why do I know what’s happening?’ I’m 20% of the way through this book but it’s gone quickly so far. I just haven’t had any time to read it…. oops.

 

Shakespeare’s Sonnets – William Shakespeare

Shakespeare's Sonnets

I read some of the sonnets from this book a few weeks ago for my Foundations of the English Major class and really liked sorting through the wording and annotating. Obviously am in the right major lol. I started reading the super boring introduction and they’re not real page numbers so I can’t technically track it, but I’ve probably read 20 pages of this. I really like the few sonnets I read, so am excited to continue on with this. I have NO idea when I’ll actually pick it up, but it’s on my currently reading shelf sooo.


Side note:

I’m so excited for summer. I love school and being at school, but I can’t wait until I’m done with these classes for the semester. I’m in some pretty rough classes and taking dance on top of all my classes is very taxing.

*English Publishing and Dance double major*

I am so excited to wear swimsuits everyday. I am pumped for my Chaco tan lines. Gonna be a receptionist at a local hair salon. Going to eat snow cones as often as possible. Taking two online classes over the summer, but we’re just going to pretend it’s not really a thing. It’s fine.

Hope everyone is doing well and thank you so much for reading my posts :) I hope you’re not as far behind on your Goodreads goal as I am lol.
