The Bone Sparrow by Zana Fraillon.

It's not published for another couple weeks (I have a friend who works in the publishing house) but ahhh, you all need to read this book when it comes out. So beautiful and honest and important, especially right now.

I've started reading Numero Zero by Umberto Eco. It may be not the best of his work but still pretty exciting to read.

I'm reading a book about Angels and Demons. I know it's kinda old but it really made me regret to read this amazing thing just now!

I'm about to read Ivan the Fool by Leo Tolstoy. The last time I tried reading any of Tolstoy's works was a couple of years back. I picked up Anna Karenina, but couldn't read past a couple of chapters. Although it's a classic, for some strange reason, I didn't find it interesting. I finished reading This Side of Paradise by Fitzgerald yesterday. I recommend it to anyone who finds the Jazz age endearing.
