I haven't updated in a while. But I thought I should mention that over my holiday break (which ended a long time ago...SORRY!) I read Death of Vishnu by Manil Suri. EXCELLENT book.
With it's many subplots, it's difficult to describe the plot. I can only say that I recommend it highly.
I also read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. I hadn't read it in forever, and so I decided to read it before the movie comes out so that I would be aquainted with the story. It was such a cute read, but I can easily see where Tim Burton could pull out some dark undertones.
Now that classes are in session, I've got a pretty tough workload, so I'm not sure how much reading I'll be able to do, but I'll keep you posted!
