So what’s next you ask? Where do I go now I’m all filled up with my filthy mojo once more? Well, whoa there eager beavers, let’s not talk about anyone’s mojo being reinstated just yet. I’ve still got plenty to distract me and keep my mojo occupied elsewhere. However, I think I’m settling into studying, working, writing, living, and all that other nonsense that constitutes a half-way respectable life, so perhaps I’m heading towards some sort of balance. I’m about three-quarters of the way through the first draft of my novel, all my big assignments are handed in, business is good, life is better, and finally my tbr pile is decreasing! Oh, and I joined a book club – because I found I had a spare hour unaccounted for in my weeks.
Will I be reviewing anything good this month? Well, I hope so. I’m planning to write something about The Fall by Albert Camus, which is, notoriously, one of his trickiest novels. That being the case, it might take me a little while to order my thoughts, but I will do my best to get something out this month. I’m also reading the rather charming Library of Unrequited Love – a book translated from French, and all about the life of one grumpy librarian who finds (shock horror) an interloper asleep in her library one morning! She proceeds to educate him on the intricacies of the Dewey decimal system, as well as recounting her views, opinions, and personal history in a roundabout way. It’s a brisk monologue so far, and if I get a chance I’ll tell you all about it at some point.
Everything else I’m reading is for my course, or generally so obtuse that no one outside of my own head would be interested, so we’ll just crack on and see what I can muster up in terms of reviews this month.
