This week has been absolutely crazy for me, what with general homework and work getting really busy. Plus I had an annotated bibliography due today at midnight (guess why I’m writing this a bit late?). Also, I don’t know if I just have a really tedious cold or if I’ve finally developed allergies to something in the air (apparently the mulberry and cottonwood are both really bad this year). So after all of that, I really look forward to reading some fun stuff this weekend. Interesting to note may be that I was actually unable to find the covers I have of the first two.
Good evening everyone! This post is barely minutes late, so don’t mind me. I thought I’d do a Friday Reads post as a little general update.
1. Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Süskind
This book is pretty much exactly what it says on the tin. I’m particularly fond of the writing style, actually–I can see why someone else wouldn’t like it, but it’s just a bit magical to me. I’m reading this for class, and I need to have it completely finished by Tuesday, but I hope to accomplish the whole thing this weekend.
2. “Das Urteil” (“The Judgment”) by Franz Kafka
I am also reading this for class. I’m not sure yet if I have to finish it for Tuesday or not, but I’ll try to get through it–it hasn’t been so bad so far, but a little bit dry. Maybe something will actually happen over the next few pages!
3. The Young Elites by Marie Lu
I don’t think I’ll finish it this weekend, but I would really like to make at least a bit of progress in this audiobook. I’m about halfway through it, and I actually rather enjoy it. The characters are very interesting, even if the plot isn’t as exciting as it could be, and the atmosphere could be stronger.
What are you reading this weekend?
