After yesterday’s Parisian post, I’ve noticed a pattern developing in the books I’ve bought lately..
You wouldn’t think that I had only been back from India a couple of weeks; I’m already itching to go away again. At least I can read about someone else’s travels for now.
At the moment I’m still reading a copy of City of Djinns that I picked up in India, but I can’t wait to start reading these Penguin Great Journey books! I found them at Tynemouth flea market and feel in love with their covers. The two I’m especially excited for are Mark Twain (because I love him) and Dampier (because I love pirates). For one of my final essays at uni I wrote about Victorian pirate (and adventure) novels, and had to do a lot of reading of famous pirate stories like Treasure Island, as well as some really old out of print texts. I did love it but there really is only so many times you can reread Stevenson and since handing in my final essays for uni, I haven’t picked up a pirate story.. I think I’m ready to end my hiatus now though.
I always a bit a of a strange little girl; I was much more interested in the daring adventures of swashbuckling buccaneers than princesses.
There are a few things that are in the maybe stage of planning but I should have another trip lined up soon to satisfy my wanderlust. More on that when I have things confirmed!
Are you reading anything interesting at the moment?
