With graduation coming up in a couple of days, I’ve been getting all reflective. And those reflections brought me back to a little idea that myself and a friend had in first year, that became something ultimately much bigger. A campus bucket list.
So, as a number of you know, I have been set some challenges to complete for charity over the 12 Days of Christmas. Sally set me a challenge to post two book reviews: one of my favourite book I’ve read this year, and one of my least favourite.
As an English Literature student, I really appreciate this challenge: firstly because it forces me to review all of the books I’ve read this year (which is a lot, but still not enough) and secondly gives me an excuse to write about novels in a non-academic style. I haven’t done this in a while, so forgive me if they’re not very well-written… Anyway, here goes.
So a few weeks ago I was nominated to write about the top ten books which have stayed with me, and naturally, another post is now going around about music.
This is one ‘challenge’ that actually, I was pretty excited to be nominated for! I didn’t really want to clog up everyone’s Facebook feeds with the ramblings of a Literature student, so I thought it would be a great excuse for a blog post.
