Books Wrap Ups

October Wrap Up

December 24, 2017

Yes I know it's almost 2018...I'm still catching up, okay? Between Uni and work I've been snatching time to blog. 

Demon Love Spell Volume One

I was surprised by how much I liked this. In my review, and most of the manga reviews I have, I mention that I tend to be drawn towards the darker stories, like Attack on Titan or Tokyo Ghoul. But I really enjoyed Demon Love Spell. It's a little tongue in cheek and at times I found myself wincing a little bit at some of the comments I read. However, I still plan on carrying on with this series. 

I have a review for Demon Love Spell Volume One here

2. Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe

I really enjoyed the plot in this novel but my god I hated the format. Continuous text with no chapters? Um, no thank-you. I have Robinson Crusoe on my TBR and I'm a little afraid to pick it up now! Moll is a typical example of literature from the 1700's very morality focussed. What I find fascinating is that in the preface Defoe states that the story is based on a set of documents he found about a person named Moll that lived and had once been incarcerated in the Newgate!

2. Evelina by Frances Burney

Evelina, the more I think about it the more I like it. Like Moll, it didn't have chapters but was instead separated into letters. The satirical nature of the novel really appealed to my sense of humour and also decidedly feminist outlook. Frances Burney was writing during the time that manual for being a 'good woman' or something to that effect were common place. It's a great read and I love how outspoken Evelina is.

Hedda Gabler by Ibsen

I didn't love this but nor did I hate it. It's the orange revel of the pack, I won't pick it first but if it's there I'll eat it. 

I have a review for Hedda Gabler here

Othello

Macbeth has yet to be displaced as my favourite Shakespeare play. That is all.

I have a review for Othello here

Twelfth Night

See aforementioned. 

I have a review for Twelfth Night here.

Those are the books I read in October...I know it's been a long time coming. Assignments and work too priority but I intend to get on top of my blogging game in 2018. 

What have you been reading lately?

Thank-you for reading,
