An Update: Making Progress

Just thought I’d toss out a quick update if you’re interested….

  1. Finished The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. Totally not what I had expected, but it was still fantastic even though the ending was fairly predictable. I highly recommend it to those who enjoy classic literature.
  2. My little sister finally returned my copy of The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky that she swore up and down she’d returned to me almost two years ago. I feel like I should have a sign-out sheet for my books. My copy of City of Bones is not on its shelf…I’ll have to check its status with the borrower. She’s heading for Europe next month, and I’d rather not risk my book disappearing among potentially lost luggage.
  3. Currently reading Four: A Divergent Collection by Veronica Roth. It’s pretty good, but it’s not holding my attention nearly as tightly as I’d anticipated. It should be a quick read, but it’s taking me much longer than it should. I’m hoping to post a brief review sometime this weekend. Someone really needs to hold me accountable for writing reviews. They have a tendency to slip my mind all too often.

That’s all for now! What are you reading this week?

Dorian Gray…Oh, Dorian.

Just a quick update.

As you all know, I’m reading The Picture of Dorian Gray. The book’s first eight chapters were great. Now, however, things seem to be progressing rather slowly and I’m losing interest. I hope it picks up soon.

Also, Lord Henry is annoying. His insights in the first few chapters were intriguing, but I’m not a fan of how Dorian is letting Lord Henry influence him in various ways. I suppose that’s one of the points of the story, though.

Oh well. The only way to know how it ends is to keep pushing on!
