So, it's officially over. Literature Week.
Hope you guys enjoyed it! I *sort of* did.
Here it is summarized:
1. The reasons I decided to hold a Literature Week.
2. Book reviews!
Day One: Animal Farm by George Orwell
My Opinion in Short (MOS): The allegory got quite ridiculous after a while, and Orwell really butchered Russian History. I mean, pigs, really?
Day Two: Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
(MOS): One of the most powerful, emotional books I've ever read. You gotta love hating the characters. A true classic.
Day Three: This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald
(MOS): Not as good as The Great Gastby, but still a good read. It's disjointed genius, and I love Fitzgerald.
Day Four: Margaret Atwood Selected Poems
(MOS): This book changed my life. It taught me to love poetry, and it was just so beautiful.
Day Five: The Piano Lesson by August Wilson
(MOS): Definitely my least favorite of the lot. I just found it very dull.
Day Six: The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
(MOS): My favorite book of the whole week. Quite possibly the most beautifully written book I've ever read. YOU'VE GOT TO READ THIS ONE.
Day Seven: Madeleine is Sleeping by Sarah Shun-Lien Bynum.
Most confusing book I've ever read. I'm still confused and even thinking about it makes me confused.And confused is sort of a confusing word if you think about word if...*shakes head* o.o Yep, still confused.
Well, this was a whole another experience. Exhausting. Quite traumatizing. BUT AMAZING.
I've learned so much this week.
And I've decided that I'm going to read more literature from now on.
Also,I'm making literature reviews a permanent fixture on this blog. Expect one every once in a while--after this week, I'm reading LOTS more literature.
AND...Guest blog on my experiences this week coming up. Keep your eyes peeled for the link. :D
Also, ask me questions:
If you have any questions about my experience doing Literature Week, ask away. I shall respond.
Or just questions about ANYTHING you want. I shall answer if I can, I eez bored. lol, have fun with it :D
