Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime and Other Stories by Oscar WildePlus, it’s in the public domain!
The King of Elfland’s Daughter by Lord Dunsany
The Last September by Elizabeth BowenThe film adaptation is, while different from the novel, very worth a go, and not just because you’ll be playing “Hey, It’s That Guy!” for most of the film. Your heart will be breaking too much.
This past week has been my spring break (possibly my last? Stay tuned!), and it has been busy. I’ve been cooking, working (publishing never sleeps!), hosting friends at my parents’ house, catching up with an old friend, reading, writing, and cleaning. I didn’t read as much as I would have liked, but I do feel mightily recharged and, if not ready to go back to school, ready to get this home stretch over with. I also attended my first feminist conference yesterday, THATCamp Feminisms South! I’d never been to a feminist conference before, let alone an unconference, and it was a very pleasant and eye-opening experience, especially on privacy and the current state of sexism in video games. Today I’ll be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with the Atlanta Tolkien Society; I’m considering wearing my Durin’s Family Reunion t-shirt, which I may have cut up into a sleeveless tunic. I would totally rewatch Breakfast on Pluto, but I didn’t do a lick of homework over the break. Let the day begin!
