Recent Reads | May

The end of the school semester/year would, in theory, mean more time to read, and yet I've found the opposite to be true. Constant assignment deadlines are gone, but with the ending of the semester also came the end of a consistent routine, and as I currently work only part-time my schedule changes on a weekly basis, making it harder to plan time for things. I read a number of short works this month but I'll only mention my two favourites from May.

Currently | Update No. 2


Coming off of eleven consecutive days of work to a free weekend feels like a welcome chance to catch my breath and get the creative juices flowing again, and I'm making the most of it by - what else? - typing away on my laptop in corner tables in coffee shops and borrowing too many books from the library. With the full summer ahead of me, plans are solidifying and I'm finally starting to believe I have the free time to relax, even just a bit.

Recent Reads | April

As it can be guessed by my lack of posts this month, April was a crazy mess. Between being a full-time student, working 25 hours a week, and attempting to maintain some semblance of a social life, reading and blogging got pushed to the bottom of my priority list. I only read four books this month and all of them were fairly short. Despite the limited number, they were still good ones and worth mentioning.


The Crucible by Arthur Miller
The Crucible was required reading in high school, but I pulled it out again this month as I desperately want to see it on Broadway this season. Miller's 1953 play about the Salem Witch Trials (with thinly veiled references to McCarthyism) is an engrossing, emotional one, and I definitely enjoyed it more the second time around. Because it is a play it's quite short in page length, and is easy to get through quickly.
