More Sanderson. Mistborn short-story
1984 by George Orwell
Haven't read the book, but I'm enjoying the TV show.Currently reading Normal People. Which is about as different as you can get. It's been adapted for the BBC and ladies are raving about it. It isn't terrible, but it's a huge stretch to say it's any good. Full of meekly described sex and a story that doesn't really go anywhere interesting.
I'm enjoying it mostly. A bit slow, but well filmed and the two leads are good. Lots, and lots of sex.I'm hoping the show is far superior to the book.
I liked it. Be prepared for most /all of it to be in the form of letters and journal entries, though. But it's good. I particularly enjoyed Harker's early descriptions of Dracula's castle and the journey to get there, van Helsing the hunter is a badass, and there's a captain's log from a ship that is legit terrifying.I'm thinking about reading Dracula by Bram Stoker
Read the synopsis there. Sounds good, but a bit grim for my current state of mind.Currently reading House of Mirth by Edith Wharton. A 1905 novel about a 29 year old American lady living in high society trying to find an husband. Very interested and incredibly well written. Can understand the notion of it being called a classic.
