New Book, More Releases, and Update!

Yesterday I visited my uni bookshop and found that they had some penguin classics for only $9.30! Thats 70c cheaper than at any other store I've visted so far. So, I had to buy one, and I bought My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell.

In other news, I saw on my facebook that they will be releasing 75 new penguin classics in June to celebrate 75 years of Penguin! Now, this is super exciting but also super scarey: that will take the number up to 175 books I have to read!

At the moment I'm reading Persuasion by Jane Austen. I figured I should read one non fiction and one fiction book concurrently. I dont think I will be finishing Fabric of the Cosmos anytime soon: uni is going to be WAY intense. Also, I have to read a book for book club before the first Tuesday in March.

Wish me luck! ^_^

Currently Reading Persuasion

Book Review: Lolita

My Review: 4/5

I loved this book. I have to say it, it was weird and creepy and unnerving, but it was a very very good read. I really want to see the movie now. I would suggest to anyone above the age of 15 to read this book. Its not really child appropriate, lol.

Um, the only thing I didnt really like about it was how Lolita ended up, with a deadbeat husband and poor. I really wish she ran off with someone and ended up happy and normal, I mean, she says she's happy, but I wish she could be happy and at least decently wealthy. *sigh* poor girl, I really do feel very sorry for her.

Currently reading Fabric of the Cosmos (Still!)
