Oh boy! Another semester, another reading list!!
Course: The Global Novel
The Emigrants by W.G. Sebald
Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche
The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai
Exit West by Mohsin Hamid
A Hologram for the King by Dave Eggers
Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi
I’m most excited about this class this semester, since many of these titles are on my actual, outside-of-class TBR. I’ve already read Exit West, and didn’t love it so I promised myself I would re-read it someday. I’m also very excited to read Americanah and Dave Eggers, of whom I’ve heard good things. I normally don’t post reviews of things I read for class on here, since I usually don’t read them in their entirety, but look out for reviews of some of these titles during the next few months!
Course: Shakespeare’s Early Plays
Love’s Labour’s Lost
Romeo and Juliet
The Merchant of Venice
Much Ado About Nothing
Shakespeare and I have a love-hate relationship… I love to see his work performed, but I’ve never enjoyed reading it. My professor is the ultimate Shakespeare enthusiast, though, and her excitement is infectious, so perhaps that will change. I can’t wait to carry my 4,000 page Norton around campus!
Beyond my English classes, I’m also taking a climate change class, a philosophy of art class, and Communications 101. Wish me luck!
