    1984 by George Orwell. Part of it in my opinion is quite tough to get though but it really is a good book

    Going to start the audiobook of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green this week. It was highly recommended to me by someone quite a while ago and just remembered about it last night. :slight_smile:

    "Like Me" by Chely Wright. She's a country singer who was in the closet for 35 years I think because she was worried what her very religious family would think and worried she would lose her fan base. There is also a documentary that tells her story called "Wish Me Away". Her story really clicked with me because I also grew up in a church, and she talks about considering suicide because of being in the closet, which sadly I did too many times. Both the book and documentary are good, I won't spoil to much :slight_smile:

    What are you looking at? 150 years of modern art in the blink of an eye - Will Gompertz

    It's a really cool book that explains every art movement since the end of the 19th Century in a more ludic way.

    In the Meantime by Iyanla Vanzant

    Very well written and eye opening. Really makes you think-- about love and relationships, about communicating your wants and needs and being responsible for your actions. And staying true to yourself, always. Great book!

    Isn't he the BBC Arts guy? Could be interesting...

    Just finished Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan, and have now started Star Wars: Aftermath by Chuck Wendig (whose second-person narrative somehow isn't annoying to me - believe me, it's a surprise to me too).

    Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut. I adore this man's dark sense of humor and unique style.

    We should be friends. Maybe slightly obsessed with Rick Riordan's books. I'm reading Magnus Chase and The Hammer of Thor right now
