Yep, I know, I haven’t posted in awhile. I swear I’m trying! University consumes all my brainpower and when I’m in the middle of deadlines it is sometimes difficult to even remember I have a blog. I keep thinking about shifting things around with the blog, but I never allocate enough time to do it. There is something pushing me away from blogging and until I figure out what it is, I think I’m going to have a hard time being consistent.
My plan, until then, is to have a post every fortnight – to ease myself back into blogging. They probably won’t be book reviews because I’m only reading study books at the moment and as much as I like my degree, I’m not up for reviewing every single book about early modern drama that I read.
I would like to do some posting about creative writing, about university, and about my instagram. I’ve recently had a breakthrough and found a new style I like, so I’m in the process of changing up my Instagram.
Anyway, on to the topic of this post: an October Wrap Up! This month I’ve read three books according to Goodreads (not including the piles and piles of JSTOR articles and academic books, hahahahahahaha) which were:
- Arden of Faversham by Anonymous
- Paradise Lost by John Milton
- The Monk by Matthew Lewis
These are all books for one of my current modules: Crime, Culture and Transgression. It isn’t my favourite (Robots, Cyborgs and Digital Worlds takes the cake for my favourite university module so far) but I’m getting along with it decently well.
There are only two books left for me to read this semester.
- Devil in a Blue Dress – I’m half way through this, so it won’t take me long
- Patchwork Girl – a digital, interactive narrative stored on a USB… yeah, I’m interested to see how it will turn out, too!
Even if I don’t make posts about any of my other university books, I will try and write one for Patchwork Girl!
I’m also thinking about completely ditching the concept of book reviews and instead replacing them with book thoughts! This would mean I talk about how I felt about the book in a more neutral way, without talking about a rating or whether it was good/bad. I think it would be more suited to how I read!
Are you making changes to your blogging at the moment? Have you fallen off the blogging bandwagon like me? Let me know in the comments!
