So most of the books on my TBR this month are for uni or because of uni (I will explain, I promise). It’s quite ambitious as most of them are classics, but I need to get to as many as possible to get ahead for my modules! The first three are for my 19th Century Russian Literature module.
Eugene Onegin – Alexander Pushkin
I’ve already started this one and I’m nearly halfway through. I’m actually really enjoying it and the translation is fairly simple to read, there are a few archaic phrases to be a more literal translation but otherwise it’s okay.
A Hero of Our Time – Mikhail Lermontov
Dead Souls – Nikolay Gogol
Les Miserables – Victor Hugo
This one is the ‘because of uni’ one. I always promised myself I’d finish this before I started another long book, namely Anna Karenina or War and Peace. I really want to finish this anyway, as I adore the story and musical and literally anything Les Mis, but Anna Karenina is on my module reading list, so there’s a little pressure there.
Evening Primrose – Kopano Matlwa
When the Floods Came – Clare Morrall
Okay so these last two are both review books that I have been sent, I’ve started them both and they’re both so so good. Very different (I’m struggling to find one I’m truly in the mood for though I think dystopian and When the Floods Came is best suited at the moment) but very good.
Also, I apologise for there being no photo – one may or may not be added in the future, but I’m still setting everything up on my computer at the moment so bear with me. (Also most of them are on iBooks anyway so there is nothing to photograph!) However, I can now insert emojis, so do expect an influx of them on here as I overuse them everywhere else so why not make that the case on here too.😂
