Includes many required British lit. books I am a little too excited to read for the trip. That list has Henry VI: Part II by Shakespeare, Wise Children by Angela Carter, Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf, A Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, and the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. All Brit works from different eras!
The other books are my varied picks, from the witty and inspiring stories of Flannery O’Connor to Stardust by Neil Gaiman, an author of whom I’ve only heard wonderful things. Also, that crazy Stardust movie came out a few years ago and I’ve always wanted to see it. Then we have YA picks, The Elite by Kiera Cass, sequel to the Selection, and Requiem, sequel to Delerium by Lauren Oliver. Both books are the second in a series of three and have dystopian themes. Merlin by T.A. Barron will satisfy my fantasy and medevial needs since I have no access to Game of Thrones on HBO :( The 5th Wave is a book I cannot wait to get my hands on. It takes a dystopian world but with a twist, an alien invasion occurs instead of a zombie apocalypse or an overthrow of a government. So, I’m excited to see what the hype is all about!
Any suggestions or additions? Happy reading!
