June in Review

Hello, utterly charming humans.

I’ve had a mad month, and not an exactly great one. I’ve been so busy with work and university, plus a nasty injury to my wrist, so haven’t been able to do very much at all for actual enjoyment.

So in June, I read:

A Literature of Their Own by Elaine Showalter

Asphodel by H.D.

Il Duro by D.H. Lawrence

The Complete Poems of Christina Rosetti

Penelope’s Web: Gender, Modernity and H.D.’s Fiction by Susan Stanford Friedman

I started and dropped:

Mythologies by W.B. Yeats

I just couldn’t get into it right now, I’m not in the mood for the method of storytelling.

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

Yet again…. Just can’t seem to get into it. I love the way the audio book readers have done it, but I’m not really feeling it.

Oh well!

I re-read:

Bid Me to Live by H.D.

The Return of the Soldier by Rebecca West

My two very lovely thesis texts. I’m working on both of these at once, due to assignments, so Mrs Dalloway must wait until I’m finished with these two.

I have also started:

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

The Gentleman in the Parlour by V. Somerset Maugham

The History of Sexuality vol.1 by Michel Foucault


Even though I feel like I’ve read very little, or at least finished very little, I’ve kind of got through a lot. I have no specific plans for July, but I’m thinking I’ll need to read a bit of Freud and perhaps I’ll start Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell!


Tell me what you think!
