As many of you who follow me on twitter know, I had a fabulous week last week. I did very well on my second essay, I got notified that I have a job interview at a library (a job which I would LOVE), my dissertation is progressing very well, and I was contacted by new publishers here in the UK for reviews. I’ve been quite pleased with myself and thrilled that things are going at least a little bit in the direction that I would like. A few roadblocks have presented themselves in the past couple of days, but I’m hoping to surmount them anyway.
Not much time for this post today as my lovely fiance is currently making us lunch! I’m very lucky. I’m reading Atlas of Unknowns by Tania James, an absolutely fabulous book about an Indian girl who uses her sister’s talent to get a visa for the USA, only to get caught in a huge web of her own lies and struggle with who she is and what she wants to get out of her life. I anticipate finishing it a little later today, and then I plan on starting The Bridge of the Golden Horn by Emile Sevgi Ozdamar. That one appears to be a memoir about a sixteen-year-old girl who flees Istanbul to work on an assembly line in a factory in Germany. I think it sounds interesting, and I know I need to read more books set outside the USA and the UK, so I’m looking forward to it.
I’m also looking forward to watching more of Season 2 of LOST, courtesy of Amy, who is certainly an amazing friend! We are loving this show. Tomorrow morning I’ll be heading back to York to work on my dissertation; I’m digging deep into the primary sources for the next two weeks in search of useful mentions of Anthony Woodville.
What’s ahead for you this week? Anything exciting?
