Hey guys, long time no see!
(Life update below the wrap-up, if you’re interested)
All of February was taken up by books for uni, but here’s what I read anyway:
The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad
This book was a drag, but it got better as it went along. The ending was really good and it’s an interesting book to study.
The Good Soldier by Ford Maddox Ford
I could not get into this book for the life of me. It was plain boring and full of awful characters. I forced myself through this and yeah… not a fan.
Autumn by Ali Smith
Having previously read and studied Ali Smith I was excited to read another of her novels and I was not disappointed! I had to read this for a Contemporary literature class and studying it was fascinating! It’s a great read in general, Smith’s writing is whimsical and lyrical, but studying it was amazing. Highly recommend picking this up.
I’ve had some things going on in my personal life and I took an impromptu hiatus.
I’m also very busy with uni work and reading and haven’t had the time to read and review other books. Overall, life is chaotic at the moment!
I’ve had disaster after disaster (a very bad break-up and family death, power cuts, flooded kitchen). I just haven’t felt the motivation to blog. I’m hoping to regain my love of blogging and writing and get out of my slump!
Mental health-wise, I’ve been suffering pretty badly. Depression and anxiety have been really rough lately. I’m trying to remain positive and do stuff to make me happy/relaxed and it is improving, slowly but surely.
Phew. Mini rant over.
How have you guys been? What have you been reading?
Hopefully, your last month went better than mine!
