Grace's September TBR
Hey y'all!It's Grace here, on my lightest day of the week. Needless to say, y'all will be getting a lot of posts on Tuesdays! All I have today is "Female and Male in Western Religions" and "British Literature: All About Eve." Somehow it worked out that the humanities classes I could take this semester were all religion classes, so I've been reading a lot about systems of faith in various contexts.With that being said - so, so much reading to do for those classes - I also have some young adult picks that I would love to tackle this month. I feel like the best way to ensure that I make time for myself is to decide on a few books I'd like to start out with, and get into a routine. (Not that reading is work, but I do feel the need to schedule it at first.)Without further ado, here's what I'm planning on reading in September.
Souls and Bodies by David Lodge | GoodreadsParadise Lost by John Milton | GoodreadsJust Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics by Margaret Farley | GoodreadsIn the Wake of the Goddesses: Women, Culture, and the Biblical Transformation of Pagan Myth by Tivka Frymer-Kensky | GoodreadsTiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson | Goodreads Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow | GoodreadsThe Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera | GoodreadsSeven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse | GoodreadsWhy We Broke Up by Daniel Handler | GoodreadsWinger by Andrew Smith | Goodreads
On here, there are some rereads, some fascinating (textbook) reads, and some fresh titles I can't wait to dive into. I figured I needed a few favorites to ease the transition - which, in hindsight, may have been a mistake considering Tiger Lily left me sobbing alone in my dorm room for a solid hour the other night. Peter's letter gets me every time. I'm already pretty excited to push my books on my friends; one of them read The Unbearable Lightness of Being and his response was touching.
Even my textbooks are pretty engrossing. I'm a history nerd, and I love breaking down the linguistics of the church and all. Good times.
So it's not a particularly exciting month, reading-wise, although I have some solid picks up there.
