Finished Breakfast at Tiffany's yestersay. Odd book.
Excellent read! I cannot get enough of Umberto Eco. The man was brilliant, both in his fiction and non.
This will actually be my first, despite having both Foucault's Pendulum and Baudolino sitting around my house (Haha.) But it's a good read so far and a great bridge from my current interest in the arts/literature on one hand and wanting to explore philosophy on the other.
The Conquest of Bread by Peter Kropotkin.
Julius Caesar by Shakespeare; for whatever reason this is, so far, turning out to be the first play of his I'm thoroughly enjoying in quite awhile. As good as even Lear was just before this.
The Last Beginning by Lauren James, its about time-travelling lesbians and the mum of one of the lesbians is bisexual. The story is actually really great as well!
The Why Are You Here Cafe: A New Way of Finding Meaning in Your Life and Your Work by John Strelecky.
I really like his books. They're not like novels "only" for reading, they also help to think about life.
I just picked up "Beyond magenta: transgender teens speak out" by Susan Kuklin from the library.
The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
I love Jane Eyre, its my favourite classic novel!
Reading 'Keepers of the cave' by Gerri Hill
I'm reading The Martian by Andy Weir right now. So far it's really good
I stayed up till 1:30am last night reading the Martian. Couldn't put it down. I finished it.
The Grapes of Wrath, by John Steinbeck, finally. Just over 100 pages in now and really enjoying it.
I'm reading The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey I got it for free so I'm pretty happy about it c:
Hystopia by David Means, not sure how to feel about it yet 0_0
Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami.
I'm reading No One Belongs Here More than You by Miranda July, and the Sunshine Screenplay by Alex Garland.
Naslouchač (The Listener) by Petra Stehlíková, czech sci-fi book, very cool. It's about a little girl pretending to be a boy in post apocalyptic world.
Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio. Three tales in so far and already enjoying it more than I would've imagined.
