Some news and Short Story on Wednesdays!

I’ve felt the need to blog today, so here I am!!

First of all, there is an upcoming review for Books and Reviews: Our Kind of Traitor by John LeCarré. I am so in love with his The Constant Gardener that I asked my parents for his last novel last Christmas and did not have time to read it til now.

Also, I’m reading Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys. It is a landmark in posctolonial theory and in postmodern literature: it narrates the life of Bertha, that woman that our dear Mr. Rochester kept in the attic while he had an affair with Jane Eyre. Basically, it is the story of the other in racial and feminist terms.

Do you have some free reading time? If you do, please visit Risa’s blog: she hosts a wonderful event I am planning on joining (right now I’m designing jewellery and enjoying my four free weeks til my last year at college starts!) called SHORT STORIES ON WEDNESDAYS: (from her blog)

Short Stories on Wednesdays is a weekly event hosted here, at Bread Crumb Reads. The purpose of this event is to encourage people to read at least one short story a week. There are no limits, of course! If you have made a post on the short stories you’ve read this week, please do leave a link in the comments section. If you haven’t made a post, it does not matter. I’d still love to know what you’ve been reading. Just put the titles down in the comments section.

Risa also studied English literature so I’m sure she can provide you with a wonderful and well-informed insight into anything she recommends or you ask.

Thanks for reading and come back!
