Hannah: “Maybe all humans are actually swans, on the side of a river, dreaming that we’re humans…”
Rose: “Dreaming that we’re in Imagine, doing poetry revision?”
Hannah: “Yeah, kinda like ‘Inception’. Then we wake up and go and have an adventure somewhere…” *proceeds to hide many swan-dream related post-it notes in Amy’s poetry anthology*

Hannah’s revision weary mind.

30 Day book challenge (Rose’s Answers)

Lady Rose speaks! Via text message she has given me her responces to the unanswered questions of days 2 and 3…

Day 2 - A book you have read more than three times:
Rose: The Host by Stephanie Meyer
Hannah: …I shall not criticise this. For all the flack Stephanie Meyer gets about Twilight, The Host was a pretty good read. Especially loved the end.

Day 3 - Your favourite series:
Rose: Inheritance Circle by Christopher paolini
Hannah: I know not who this is, by if Lady R recommends it it must be golden :)

Thanks people,

30 Day Book Challenge

As English students, Rose and I feel compelled to complete the 30 Day Book Challenge. (So far we’re not doing too splendidly as we’re already starting 3 days late.) Because Rose has once again flown the coup and left me by myself *cue sad violin music*, 2 of her three answers are pending.

Day 1 - The Best book you read last year: 
       RoseThe Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet   
       HannahRoom by Emma Donoghue

Day 2 - A book that you’ve read more than three times:
       RoseAnswer pending
       Hannah: This sounds incrediably immature, but I must have read each of the Harry Potter books AT LEAST five times. Possibly more than five times for books three and four… 

Day 3 - Your favourite Series
       Rose: Answer pending
       Hannah: Am I allowed to say two series? The first would be the four books written by Scott Westerfield, Uglies, Pretties, Extras, Specials. I read them in my early teens and they were, to my mind, amazing. They have the ’society gone bad’ vibe to them, as well as an introspective view of human nature.
The second set of books I would mention (if you’re allowed to write two) are the Sherlock Holmes stories written by Arthur Conan-Doyle. I hestitate to write this one, as I’ve only finished The Hound of the Baskervilles, A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four. Still, they’re great books.  

See you tomorrow for Day 4!

Hannah: (writing about herself)
Rose (reading): Hannah, why have you described yourself as ‘ming blowing’?
Hannah: What?
Rose: It’s kind of dodgy…
Hannah (reads back): It’s meant to MIND blowing! (proceeds to cross out G then writes D)
Rose: It still kind of says ming blowing…
Our wonderful selves.
