What books have you been reading lately? And what are some that you've read recently that you'd recommend? :)
I’m currently reading “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “The Girl on the Train”. And I’m thinking of reading “The Bell Jar”. I’d definitely recommend “The Handmaid’s Tale”.
My favourite book is “A Portrait of a Lady” by Henry James. When I was a kid, I was obsessed with the Lemony Snicket books and “The Little Princess”. And when I was a teenager I loved “Sea Sick” because I’m a science nerd, “The Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man”, “The Catcher On The Rye”, and all the “Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” books. The POAAAAYM is slightly strange, but it’s such a unique piece of literature I’d highly recommend it. I’d also recommend “The Wasp Factory”, if you’re into something super freaky!
F.: I think Catcher in the Rye is my favourite book, though I love almost anything by J.D. Salinger. Books are like movies though, I have so many favourites, it varies according to my mood. G.: He’s always reading - on planes, on the bus, in the bunk, wherever. I really envy it. He can just tune noise out and read in the middle of the chaos.
