MiniMe and I cozied up in bed last night to do our assigned reading together 🧡💛🧡

3 weeks into uni and I have never read so much in my life! But I definitely need to find more time to read for pleasure...and for Litsy. I've been missing this wonderful community!!

Who Let the Gods Out? | Mary Evans, Maz Evans

This is MiniMe's Year 5 class read and it's bringing up some emotional stuff for him.

Bought my own copy this afternoon, sat in the park in glorious sunshine and had a thoroughly good time reading the first few chapters. Many laugh out loud moments!

I can see why he's struggling with the plotline of the MC's Mum, but I think it will be a cathartic process for him and I'm so grateful he has a great teacher and this brilliant book to help him.

The Wych Elm | Tana French
post image
Pickpick

This was my first Tana French and I loved it. After frying my brain with some heavy-duty non fiction, I was pretty much just looking for an engaging plot, but it delivered on so much more as well! It's a slow burn with more focus on character development than action, and deals with themes of memory, identity, and white male privilege...all while maintaining the suspense. Can see that wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but I was hooked.

MiniMe's selection process for the #7days7covers challenge was rigorous and (to the detriment of some of my personal faves) ruthless.

Third Spain-themed non-fiction book in a row. Because obviously the time to realise I know precisely nothing about modern Spanish history is a mere two weeks before I start my MLang in Spanish and Linguistics...

AlaMich I‘m so envious! I did college and grad school all wrong; I should have done what you‘re doing. Further proof that college is wasted on the young, who often have no clue what they want to do with their lives! 2mo
LauraAndTaraAndBooks @AlaMich tell me about it! I dropped out 8 years ago because I was pretty messed up, didn't care and uni was just a "box ticking" exercise, an item on the list of things I was supposed to do to be acceptable. I'm super lucky to have a second chance to go back, fully nerd out and do it right! What did you study? 2mo
AlaMich @LauraAndTaraAndBooks Speech language pathology as an undergraduate, which I didn‘t like. Then I did get a masters in linguistics, but for the purpose of teaching English as a Second Language, which I did like. 2mo
See All 6 Comments
AlaMich @LauraAndTaraAndBooks But I‘ve always loved studying languages and I have studied Spanish off and on for forever. I just could never figure out what I‘d do with an advanced degree in it. Do you have specific plans or are you doing it for the sheer love of it? 😊 2mo
LauraAndTaraAndBooks Oof I imagine speech pathology is an awful lot of hardcore science! Teaching ESL sounds awesome though. Did you do it abroad? No concrete plans as of yet...although the ultimate dream would be to translate novels. Couldn't imagine much better than being paid to read and spread an author's words and ideas across linguistic and cultural boundaries 😊 2mo
