September TBR 2017

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.😂

    1. Yes, my old one was dying😭 and dad was paranoid it would die fully when he wasn’t around to sort it out (because I’m completely useless with computers)! Thank you haha! I’m over halfway through Eugene Onegin and I’m really enjoying it😋 I’m so pumped for it, but I adore 19thC lit. I think around Christmas when I’ve finished this module I may do a post on translated 19thC lit🤔 need to read more of it first though😂

      1. Aww yay that’s so great! I’m hoping to get a new laptop over Christmas, I’m so excited! 😀 You should definitely do a post! I would love to read some, but I have no idea on where to start…!

      2. Ahhh yay! I guess having Dad working in IT is a bonus in a way as it makes him paranoid😂 Oooh yay! In that case, I will definitely do a post, I’m hoping to read more French lit in the meantime and also maybe some British 19thC to compare, but that’s a lot of classics to cram in😂
