The Summer Book Club
For most literature students, books have become deeply rooted in our everyday thoughts and habits. Whether it’s mulling over a sentence on your way to work, reeling from a character death, or desperately trying to keep your eyes open at 3AM to finish a chapter, books are there. Perhaps unknowingly, we orientate our lives around them. Whether it’s for our course or just from the unbridled pleasure we get from reading, a book is never far from the hand of a literature student.
In this vein, we thought it would be a great idea to put together a special summer series of blog posts – comprising of book reviews written by literature students. We thought this would be a good way to generate discussion and keep students actively engaged in their reading material over the summer… Not to mention finding great reads for each another!
Each review should be 200+ words – email your review to me (RoseWolfe-Emery@connect.glos.ac.uk) and I’ll get it uploaded to the blog as soon as possible.
