November Wrap Up

November Wrap Up

November was most definitely a lighter reading month. I had a lot of work to do on my Dissertation so that took priority. But I still managed to finish four things. I'll take that as a win considering I wrote 10,000 words in one month. Hopefully, I'll manage to read a little more this month.

The Revenger’s Tragedy by Thomas Middleton

The Revenger's Tragedy by Thomas Middleton

Think desperate housewives meets Shakespeare and you get The Revenger's Tragedy. I have never read a play with so many subplots. It was hard to keep track of them all. Near enough everybody in this play had a plan of revenge and in true tragic fashion, it was ultimately their demise... Like I said, desperate housewives.

The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster

The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster

Perhaps one of my favourite plays from this last semester. It was brilliant. The Duchess is being plotted against by virtually everyone in this play including her brothers. It's really rare to see a woman in a position of power at this time and more so her being the central protagonist. I think that's why I liked it.

Ghoster* by Jason Arnopp

Ghoster* by Jason Arnopp

Again a big thank you to Compulsive Readers for having me on this blog tour. I really enjoyed Ghoster, mainly because I was completely wrong about the ending. I thought I'd fathomed out the plot but with every page, I was utterly wrong. Which I find makes a thriller for me. We follow Kate, who seems to have met the man of her dreams and is moving down to Brighton to live with him. That is until she arrives at the apartment and finds it utterly bare with no sign of her new bloke and he hasn't responded to any of her messages.

It will not go how you expect.

A Convenient Marriage* by Jeevani Charika

A Convenient Marriage* by Jeevani Charika

Another thank you to Sarah Hardy and Jeevani Charika for having me on this blog tour. I've read two of Jeevani's books before and loved both (reviews here and here.) so I had high expectations. Which of course This Convenient Marriage completely surpassed. I adored every character, the plot and of course, thoroughly enjoyed being educated about the Sri Lankan culture.
