Just finished The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. Mostly lives up to the hype. The prose is gorgeous and there is some pretty interesting commentary on vanity and beauty. I found the Henry Wotton character insufferable though and he seemed like a mouthpiece for Wilde's worldviews more than anything.

Currently reading Wool by Hugh Howey. Really enjoying it so far.

Wool, by Hugh Howey

Dystopian SF.

Somebody gave me this book years ago, and it has just been sitting on my shelf since. Because I finished the book I was reading last week and didn't have anything else in the house I hadn't yet read, I finally grabbed for my commute. I'm a few chapters in and haven't yet decided if I like the style.

I finished Who Fears Death?, by Nnedi Okorafor. It had some cool aspects but overall I wasn't a huge fan.

Started reading Wool, by Hugh Howey. So far it's been an easy and engaging read.

Finished: Kill Creek by Scott Thomas Really good book. There were several times where the only thing that made me put this down was my bedtime - I am old, I needs my sleep, but I very much wanted to keep going. A fine entry into the "hey let's all walk into this supposedly haunted house oh shit turns out it actually IS haunted whoopsie" genre. If you like haunted house novels, which I do, this is a good 'un

Started: Wool by Hugh Howey I've heard good things. I'm not very far in, but as of yet it's very good and the author's done a good job of making me go "okay but what's going on gotta find out" in only 60 pages.

Finished: Wool by Hugh Howey Two really good books in a row! This also fell under the "I want to keep reading but it's bedtime goddammit" banner. Brisk pace, fun characters, and very tense in many parts. I will absolutely be picking up the other books in the series

Started: Harvest Home by Thomas Tryon This is one flowery ass book. I'm gonna keep going and hope that it picks up, but so far it's been 70 pages of fuckin nothin. Supposedly a horror novel, but so far the scariest thing that's happened is that the kid is a little shit.

Just finished The Vanishing Stair, by Maureen Johnson. This is book #2 in the Truly Devious series. I loved the first because of the setting and characters, so I was pumped to read this. There were a few spots that were a little slow, but it really picked up at the end. With the way the book left off there will definitely be a third, so now I just have to impatiently wait!

I think I'm giving up on The Parable of the Sower, by Octavia Butler. Just not feeling it. Instead, I will start The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, by Junot Diaz or Wool, by Hugh Howey.
