Just so we’re all on the same page, I didn’t die. I just read a book that butchered my desire to do anything and sent me spiraling down to a constant ‘meh’ mood. And if you don’t know what being in that mood is like… You know how every time you decide to do something and you’re already up on your feet, your fingers inching towards your goal and then you just sigh to yourself and be like, “Meh, no. I’ll just go have a pizza instead.”
Although pizza is good, it certainly isn’t an alternative for productivity. It doesn’t read books for me and it doesn’t write reviews instead of me. It just adds to my already fat-rimmed hips and prom is just 2 weeks away. And you know that when you’re in a ‘meh’ mood, exercise isn’t even an option. But yeah… Besides prom, I do have my final SATs on the 4th of May and I just need to start studying. I also need to keep up my habit of reading classics before the exam so I can include interesting examples in my essay and sound smart. Jane Austen’s Persuasion earned me an extra mark in January and that was exciting.
But that isn’t the point. Well, it sort of is, but I wanna talk about something else first.
I’ve read two books after I finished Narnia. There was ‘The Lover’s Dictionary’ by David Levithan which was lovely and ‘The Kite Runner’ by Khaled Huesseni which just… Yeah. It’s the reason I stopped reading. And not because it was heartbreakingly beautiful and whatnot. NO. But we’ll talk about that in the review. Which I can promise will happen! I promise!
But yeah. To the main point of this post! Which classic should I read before my test? The Catcher in the Rye? Or should I reread Dorian Gray?
That’s all for now, I suppose! Do look out for reviews throughout the next week if I can eradicate the meh’s.
