Reading for University

As I have decided to attempt starting my book today, this post will be fairly short. I figured that because this segment is titled ‘literature’, I would share the literature I will be reading over the next few weeks, this picture on the right shows some of them (click to see in more detail), but I will also be reading some e-texts and extracts from larger novels.

The entire list consists of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations; Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey; Hari Kunzru’s Transmission; Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, Caryl Phillips’ Cambridge; Ann Radcliife’s The Mysteries of Udolpho; Virginia Woolf’s The Mark On The Wall and Monday Or Tuesday; and Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca. That’s a fairly long list for someone with an exam on the 8th of May, but I’m sure I’ll manage.

A lot of these books will be reviewed in the Monday’s segment,  and seeing as how I’m already half way through Cambridge, I’ll probably start with that. If anyone has read these books, or even just one, feel free to comment and let me know what they’re like or suggest further reading; I like to know what I’m getting myself in for. Also I’m going to include my first poll in this post, vote for your favourite, or if you don’t have a favourite then vote for the ones you like (or think you’ll like, if you haven’t read any like me). May the best book win…
