Drag queens, rollerblading and feminism: exciting uni events I’ve been to! | University of East Anglia

This is turning into a proper university blog instead of a book blog. At least I’m studying English Literature, so it’s still kind of bookish … right?

Today I want to share some really amazing events I’ve been to since coming to UEA – because they’re just worth sharing! Not all of these were technically university events, but they were all kind of aimed at students and attended by lots of people from my uni, so I’m counting them. I hope you find them interesting and maybe feel inspired to look for similar things happening in your area.

Studying English Literature: reading list for the second semester | University of East Anglia

Hello all you lovely people! I’ve finally found a bit of free time in between lectures and reading and all that good uni stuff, so I thought I might as well do some blogging! It’s been eleven days since my last post, which might not seem like a very long time to some people, but I’m used to blogging every day (or every other day when I’m being lazy), so I’ve really missed it! My blogging life will probably stay very irregular, as I have no way of predicting when I will have time, but I’ll try my best to not disappear into a blogging void.

On a completely unrelated note, I just wanted to quickly mention that I wrote a review of the wonderful Netflix show 3% for my university online magazine, and I would really appreciate if you guys could tell me what you think! It’s my first time publishing something on an ‘official’ platform, so I’m very excited to share it! You can find the review here if you’re interested.

But enough rambling! Today I thought I would share my reading list for the second semester of my first year at the University of East Anglia. Maybe some prospective English Literature students will find this helpful, and maybe others will simply enjoy looking through the titles. In any case, I hope you enjoy reading this!

Rating: ★★★★

I’ve mentioned before that all my flatmates are incredibly talented, and today I am presenting a poetry pamphlet by one of them: Ella D. Gajic. Girl deals with lots of different themes, all of them explored from a feminist point of view.

Mini reviews: movies and shows

I kind of ignored the fact that I have a blog for the last few days, but today I thought I should finally get around to writing this. I mentioned in one of my posts that I discovered a lot of exciting things at uni, and I already published a post with my new favourite music, so today I’m going to finally share the movies and shows that I have watched recently!

Things I wish you could do on Netflix

This is kind of an unusual post for my blog, but I’ve been thinking about this for some time, and I really want to talk about it. Netflix is amazing, of course, and I have spent quite a few hours on it, but there are some things you can’t do with it that I wish you could, and today I’m going to share those with you!
