My Super Awesome Wicked Adventure is officially a month away!
In four weeks, my cousin and I will be traipsing around France and England, drinking cheap wine and impressing strangers with our awful French (Who knew the language could be butchered THAT badly?) and our affected Madonna accents (I just keep saying David Banda and Malawi over and over again in preparation).
To say I’m excited is an understatement. I’m not well travelled. Shocking, I know. What gave it away? The fact that I talk obsessively about reality TV and put ketchup on everything? Judge not! I’m completely lowbrow in almost every aspect of my life except with literature. I take my personal library seriously. I don’t often buy books purely for entertainment. I’m a complete knowledge junkie and judge you if you have a ton of beach reads on your shelf #snob.
I’m already a huge fan of Camus, McEwan, Barnes and always have a soft spot for Hemingway and Fitzgerald (but who doesn’t?) so I’m creating a must read list for the trip to get me in the European mindset.
Here’s my to read list for the trip:
Madame Bovary – Flaubert
Of Human Bondage – Maugham
Brideshead Revisited – Waugh
The Second Sex- de Beauvoir
and of course… I’ll be bringing my copy of A Moveable Feast with me so I can eat bread and cheese and read in the park like a complete cliché.
If you have suggestions GIMME!
