If there’s one book that you need to read before the end of the year, make it this one! This book gave me a profound insight into how people from different cultures feel about living in the UK, the racism and prejudice they’ve faced, and the things they’ve learnt about their own heritage.
Reading Orwell always makes me happy. I know that his novels are full of depressing themes, and there’s never a ‘feel good’ ending, but I am just filled with nerdy book joy when I read his work. Burmese Days wasn’t any different.
I’ve become a little obsessed with Asimov as of late. I discovered him last year when I was looking into science fiction literature for my Master’s degree, but I didn’t really read much other than the odd short story. I finally decided to tackle his masterpiece, The Foundation Series, this summer.Let me tell you, no regrets!
