Been Out For A While

Haha, I've been off for a while partly due to FFXIII and because I got an offer to do Medicine. I'm obviously crazy-happy right now and very busy. Will be taking a step back from all my fandoms and anything fun to concentrate on getting the exam results I need, but it will all be worth it in the end I hope. Probs be back with withdrawal issues in August! But I am finally 18 in two days! Which has been a long time coming, especially if you are like me and refuse to lie about your age to get a paypal account- so Ebay here I come on Saturday.

I ordered some books today- Perfume (Patrick Suskind) and Lolita (Vladimir Nabokov)- i wonder if any of you have read this- it has highly dodgy themes but from reading an extract in class I can understand why it is often called one of the greatest masterpieces of english literature- you read it and it has this irresistable rhythm and comes across as soooooo effortless- it's just a pleasure to read DESPITE how sick you feel at the concepts- and I've only read three pages of it! I'm told Perfume is also disturbing ^_^

Does anyone have any books about love they can recommend? We're studying Love Through the Ages  in English Literature- from Medieval Lit (Chaucer and Malory) to right now- and we have to remember all these quotes of by heart for the exam- "wider reading"- haha. I'll start; Jeanette Winterson is a brilliant female writer- I'd recommend Written on the Body or Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, especially if you are into your feminist or lesbian writers. She is another author that is just addictive to read.

And OMG New Glee only starts a week later in the UK- do you know how priveleged I feel- and that is defo a fandom I'm saving for August ^_^ Watch and Learn Livingtv!!! 

...is now off to read Lady Chatterly's Lover - oh god, all these male writers are growing on me.
