Since it feels like I never have time to post anymore, I decided to further aggravate this situation by signing up to yet another challenge: The 2014 Classics Challenge!
The mechanics is just basically, you have to read one work you consider a classic per month. I am not really, really into the Classics lately, ‘coz I have this kind of New Year’s Resolution to read whatever the hell I want to read, and since I am now trying to major in Lit, I figured I’d have less time reading contemporaries and such. It is not happening that way yet–I think. But so far, 2014 has been a year of re-reads, tbh.
And I am still an asshole blogger, hence the absence of posts lately. >.<
OKAY, OKAY. So let’s add other things to the challenge. For every Classic I read, I will also review one contemporary.
And since I’m three months late into this challenge, I should read three classics to make up for this. (Which is totally not a problem ‘coz we’re required to read 3 books in one class alone.)
YAY! I hope I see this challenge ’till December.
