So, what books am I planning to read in September? Well, Jane Eyre and Notes From Underground for my Intro to Lit class (*swoon*!). I've already started Jane Eyre, and I'm loving it. It is taking a long tim to read, though, because of the dense writing, but oh man, it's so worth it.
Other books I'm planning on reading:
- Hoping to finish Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. I'm so close to finishing it, but it's just so boring and dry, that I haven't wanted to pick it back up again.
- Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. I really want to read this before the movie comes out. It looks like it could be a fantastic film (yellowface issues aside. Let's not go there.)
- Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. I've never read any of Woolf's works. Perhaps I should start now.
- Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Can't believe I haven't yet read this.
- Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. I love the movie. So so so much. Let's see how the book compares.
- Dance Dance Dance by Haruki Murakami. Can you believe it, I've never read any Murakami, either. Hopefully this first foray into his work will not be my last.
- Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Phillip K. Dick. This is for research purposes. My current novel is a sci-fi/cyberpunk that deals with the idea of humanity in a world with cyborgs and androids.
- Finally, Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed. I'm so excited to read this. I love love love books set in a non-white/European fantasy world. And it has a gorgeous cover. Just look at it.
Those are just the books I have from the library. I'm not even going to go into the books I own/ARCs from publishers. Maybe I'll save that for another post.
In the meantime, stay classy, internet.
