January: Crazy long reading list..

Am I crazy??

Er…possibly.

It’s just I seem to have set myself a rather stenuous reading challenge this month, as I desperately try to write an essay, plan my dissertation, read the remaining ‘gothic’ novels in my tbr pile from last semester, and prepare for the next. It’s no wonder I feel like screaming! My January reading list goes as follows…

  1. Caleb Williams, William Godwin
  2. The Italian, Ann Radcliffe
  3. The Romance of the Forest, Ann Radcliffe
  4. The Castle of Otranto, Horace Warpole
  5. The Turn of the Screw, Henry James
  6. We have Always Lived in the Castle, Shirley Jackson
  7. Desperate Romantics, Thomas Hardy
  8. The American, Henry James

To date I’ve polished off Caleb Williams, and am about a hundred pages into The Italian. These are all books I really want to read, it’s just finding the time when you work nine til five and and it’s so dark and cold that sometimes you just want to curl up in a ball and stare into space. Plus there’s the spector of my boyfriend, demanding my attention and trying get me hooked on his Xbox. Don’t worry, I haven’t succummed, and I hope to present eight beautifully written reviews by the beginning of February. If I have time, that is…
