August Wrap Up

August was definitely a good month in reading for me. I finished four books, and two plays. Here is the list of what I read:

  1. Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction by J. D. Salinger – 4/5
  2. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde – 5/5
  3. The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien – 5/5
  4. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte 2/5
  5. Harry Potter and the Curses Child by J. K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne – 5/5
  6. Othello by William Shakespeare (not pictured above) – 5/5

A lot of what I read in August impressed me, except for a few disappointments. Other than books, there was a show I’ve been really hooked on. I’ve been really liking the show The Man in the High Castle. I had to find a new show after watching the brilliant Stranger Things in July. The Man in the High Castle is based off Philip K. Dick’s novel of the same name, which is about what the world would be like if Germany and Japan won WW2. It is a very interesting show, but I have my criticisms too. I’ll get more into depth about this after I finished season 1.


August Haul

IMG_2302As August is coming to an end, I might as well share what books I’ve purchased. This month I bought:

  1. Dracula by Bram Stroker
  2. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
  3. The Iliad by Homer
  4. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J. K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne

I didn’t buy too many books, but I usually don’t buy books all at once. Books tend to accumulate throughout the weeks, or even months, for me. However, this month was a bit different because there was a 3 for $10 deal for the three classics I bought. I had a little nerdy squeal once I saw the price. Of course, I also had to buy the latest Harry Potter story as well. I already finished it, and have a review for it found here.
