    I am trying to read a biography of Chiang Kai-Shek . It is not going well. Recently I watch more television and write more music than almost ever before, which isn't always a bad thing, but I'm trapped at home with my parents and it is literally ruining my mind. For the first time in my life I don't want to read but just to get drunk every day.

    The lovely bones by Alice Sebold

    Lovely Bones is about a 14 year old girl named Susie who one day gets kidnapped, raped, and dismembered. Her killer buries her body not far from her home, but drops her elbow on the way. Her family thinks that she is still alive until detectives find her elbow and hat. The girl’s father has a feeling about the murderer of his daughter, but he is unsure of his assumption. This story is narrated by the girl herself as she watches over her family, friends, and murderer from heaven as they deal with her death. In the mean time, she herself is coming to terms with her own death.

    I think (and hope) this will be interesting.
    Turn the lights on.

    I finished one book in the last month and a half. I believe that is some sort of personal worst. In my defense, it was East of Eden, and it turns out that, like a lot of Steinbeck, it's so beautifully written that it's downright maddening. Incredible book.

    I have started reading Kafka on the Shore by Murakami, since my parents have a copy. It's been a very, very long time since I have read anything in French. The cadence of the language is strange to get used to again, especially in writing.

    I'm almost finished Bright's Passage by Josh Ritter (the musician). Wouldn't be my choice of book, a friend lent it to me. It's only alright to be honest.

    My next venture is either going to be 1Q84 by Murakami or Minority Report by Philip K Dick.

    I finished reading Nocturnes by John Connolly, basically a collection of short stories icluding two novellas. It was good, although the first story set a high standard for the rest to beat, so I started off very hopeful, only to be slightly disappointed.


    I then started reading The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. So far I really like it. The main character is so honest and innocent and it's a book where I catch myself smiling a lot

    That is my favorite book ever. I absolutely love it.

    Finished The Secret History by Donna Tartt a few days ago. Really liked it. Loved the New England setting and love how none of the characters were predictable.

    Now reading The Chrysalids by John Wyndham. So far so good.
