Opening Doors of Perception

Reading Series 2017

Welcome!

I suppose I'm beginning this series to keep track of what I've read - a feat that seems to be increasingly difficult as my capacity to appreciate the magical qualities of the Internet expands. Hence, I've added links where possible to the growing list of fiction (and non-fiction) I've read.

By all means, read on.

Quick Recap

With the bulk of this month consisting of exams and revision, I've spent a great deal of time going over texts and criticism again, re-familiarising myself with various strands of arguments. Subsequently, little has been added to the literary chunk of my reading this month. I did, however, discover a plethora of new podcasts which helped keep me sane while I revised (some of which I used to justify taking a break from the infinite reading that awaits my attention), not to mention the whirlwind of political announcements that have been happening since the announcement of the 2017 General Elections.
