Sedih lihatnya, tapi memang saya sering malas buat mencomot karya penulis yang tidak familier. Kesannya cari aman banget, hahaha. Semoga di bulan-bulan yang akan datang saya bisa baca lebih banyak lagi!
So, this is 2015. I’m planning to read more classics this year. Not sure why, but maybe one of the reason is because lately I keep listening to Meg and Dia’s song. When I knew that some of their songs are based or inspired by books, I got all pumped and wanting to read those books, which are, mainly classics.
This is not a challenge or anything, just my personal project. So many classics out there. It made me confused which book to read first. But then I came with this idea. How about start with reading Meg and Dia’s songs? I do really enjoy their songs so much!
And, here is the list of books from songs of this band.
East of Eden – John Steinbeck / Monster — The song is inspired by Cathy Ames’ character in East of Eden
Rebecca – Daphne du Maurier / Rebecca
Mary – Vladimir Nabokov / Tell Mary
Brave New World – Aldous Huxley / Hug Me
Indiana – George Sand / Indiana
And one song that’s having similar story to a play.
The Glass Menagerie – Tennessee William / Setting Up Sunday
Well, The Glass Menagerie is an optional because I don’t really like play that much but the first five in the list I’ll definitely read them all. But I really love Setting Up Sunday so I think I’ll read it too. Wish me luck!
P.S : I’ve already halfway through East of Eden. It was one thick book and I think I gave a wrong start lol. Steinbeck’s writing is so good and beautiful but it is too repetitive. I got bored after part three, but want to finish it soon. :>
