I'm Back!

Guys I did it! My thesis is printed and bound and sitting awaiting my 9am submission! I get to offload the thousands of library books I currently have cluttering my house and then I'm coming home to pick up a book and I'm not putting it down until I'm caught back up!

I didn't do a monthly wrap up last month, and I probably won't have one this month (considering I spent 3/4 of it far away from my books) so to let you know what my reading horizons look like I thought I'd list a few of my next few reads.

*LA Confdential by James Ellroy (Book to movie challenge)
*My Sweet Saga by Brett Sills (Author requested review)
*God of Speed by Luke Davies (Books I should have read challenge)
*Happy Slapped by a Jellyfish by Karl Pilkington (first dig at my massive birthday present pile!)

And that should keep me busy for a week or so! I'm spending a week back home in sunny, tropical Cairns (seriously, google that shit and feel the jealousy rise that I live in such a beautiful place!!) so I'm sure I'll get a bunch of reading and writing done up there. Once I get back I'll be starting up my new job as a research assistant in the film department at my university, huzzah for steps in the right direction for my adult career path!! Oh, and I applied for my Phd (and Masters as a backup) last week, so here's hoping that I'll get the thumbs up in December, not only to get into the course but to get the sweet, sweet scholarship!

So that's me for the moment, I'll be back with some bookish news soon. Hopefully there are still some of you out there keeping an eye on the blog!


  1. Congrats on finishing your thesis!!

  2. Yay! Well done in getting your thesis done. Bet it's a relief now that it's over.

    Look forward to hearing what you think of LA Confidential. Had that recommended to me a number of times but never got round to it.

    I'm reading a Karl Pilkington too, "Idiot Abroad". It's good but he's definitely funnier in person.

  3. Thanks guys! It's amazing how light and calm I'm feeling. And the sleep! Oh I'd forgotten how wonderful sleep was!
