All right. So here's another meme (I like memes and there's nothing anyone can do about it, except maybe tell me they hate them. I give into peer pressure a lot).
What book(s) are you most excited about right now?
I'm basically too tired to be really excited about anything except stars in Austrian musical theatre (oh, they're so interesting!), but the books that currently raise my exhaustedness to a less exhausted state would be the following:
1. The Color Purple
Ooh, I've never done formatting like this without html. I am overly happy.
Anyway, I had no intention of reading this, because the movie makes me bawl to an extent I find both embarrassing and painful. Some might say painfully embarrassing, but no, they are two distinct feelings.
I recently started it, though, and it's amazing and wonderful and I would kiss the ring on Alice Walker's finger if I were to happen upon her somewhere and she were wearing one.
2. Inseparable: Desire Between Women in Literature
Emma Donoghue's so cool. I want to be Irish-Canadian. That's almost as weird sounding as my friend who's a Korean-German Mormon.
Anyway, I'm rather eager to read this because it's going to cement in my head that Donoghue's smart and capable of academic-y writing (unlike myself), plus, y'know. The subject might cause me to look at things and stuff in new ways. And possibly develop a larger vocab (but one step at a time, am I right?).
Irish-Canadian is like the least surprising thing on earth. I wonder what Ireland and Canada could possssssibly have in common?ReplyDelete
Bet you're sorry you linked to your blog NOW.
I stand by what I said! It sounds weird!ReplyDelete
That's Emma Donoghue of 'Room'? Interesting...ReplyDelete
