These are the books that are on my reading list for my final year at University. The children’s literature module looks the most exciting judging by this picture alone! The Dr. Seuss books caused much hilarity from my nine year old, who couldn’t quite believe his mum was going to be learning about The Cat in the Hat! I have already read The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett and that was fantastic. Not really feeling The Hobbit though but we’ll see.
I have a couple of American literature modules next year, Contemporary American and Beats. I’ve read Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. Looking forward to reading American Psycho on this module!
These books are for the Magical Realism module, as is the Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude above, it just ended up in the wrong picture. I am looking forward to this module, as it seems a little bit out there, a bit different.
The final module is called Nature, Now and I have already read Don Delillo’s White Noise; a novel concerned with the mortality of the protagonist Jack as he gets swallowed up in the consumerism of the American way of life. So, the reading list is huge. I’m also doing a Shakespeare module but the plays in this module are all contained in one huge book, that I already have on my book shelf.
Wish me luck, as I disappear into a world of books for the next couple of months…
