Shit! It turned out in my sleep-deprived state, I skipped one day’s question entirely. That question was: A book you’ve wanted to read for a long time but still haven’t. Oh my god, I am making such a hash out of this, aren’t I? it was a terrible idea to start this during exams, but also a GOOD idea because I wouldn’t have blogged at all otherwise and my blog would have died. And that sucks
In other news, we’ve adopted a tiny stray cat in our hostel. She is filled with cuteness and I’m keeping her in my room for now and she’s being hyper-active, super-adorable and super-distracting for her. If I show you a picture of her, will you stop being mad at me for being a prat about the daily challenge? Please? :3 Here you go:
She’s TINY as you can see and is the cutest thing ever.
Also, you peeps are going to see a bunch more book reviews now that my schedule isn’t so hectic any more so stay tuned for that. 😀
There are a lot of classics that I have wanted to read for ages but haven’t yet, but those are boring to talk about, aren’t they?
A book I have been dying to read for ages, because the premise sounds so beautiful is Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak. It’s also a banned book and I have this compulsive need to read banned books to discover WHY they’ve been banned. Also, I’ve found that they’re almost always beautiful and/or brilliant. Coincidence?
Anyway, this book is about a doctor and poet who falls in love with a nurse during the Russian revolution. It sounds amazing, doesn’t it? Yet, I always find myself putting this book down. This happens to me with all Russian literature. I think it’s because the structure of Russian books is so different the other books I read. They have a lot of secondary characters with backstories for all of them and it’s just bewildering to take in at a stretch. And at a stretch is how I best read my books. I’ll try reading it slowly, maybe take it on a trip or something and see how it works out. 🙂
That’s all for today, guys.
