So my first week of postgraduate life is done, lecture wise anyway! I have a grand total of six hours a week, with eight hours every few. Can't complain really, it's the same as what I did for undergraduate! It's quite intimidating though as it feels like you have to be on top of your game 100% of the time. The dreaded presentations are being introduced this year. I'm trying to focus on how helpful they will be once they're done but at the moment it's a massive EEUUURRGHHHH!
Anyway, the point of this post is to show off the course books I know I have to read so far this semester! Can't complain which makes a lovely change :):
Neo-Victorian Mutinies: Gender & Racial Trauma
I've also decided to read:
This wasn't voted in on our to-read list course wise but I can't resist a book with a supernatural edge!
I was unbelievably excited to see Sarah Waters appear on my course text list! It's a book I've wanted to read for ages and now the excuse is there. So far these are the only compulsory texts for semester 1 (alongside small essays etc) and the course book and the way we approach it is entirely our choice for my other module! So far so good :).
Have any of you guys read any of these books? Opinions? :)
