Books, Books, Books

My reading list for uni has arrived! I'm very very excited - I start my English lit course at Sussex in just over a month, so I have a lot of reading to do. But hey, Alice in Wonderland is on my list, so it won't be such a hard slog...

Although I have been joking all year about being sure John Milton's Paradise Lost would be on my reading list, and now, lo and behold, it is. It's not so funny anymore! Ever since I was at school studying for my GCSEs, my English teachers were talking about this behemoth of a book, and how it is one of the biggest and hardest books to read. Hmm...wish me luck?

This whole year I have told myself I mustn't read so much, because it means I'm not working. Finally, reading and working are the same thing. Bring on the books!


  1. I neve had Alice in Wonderland, but then I never had Paradise Lost either. I had Dasiy Miller and The Great Gatsby and Virginia Wolf amongst others. Enjoy your course.

  2. Those books sound great, I hope they crop up at some point over the next three years :) Thank you very much! x
