    This is definitely on my list, I saw a TEDTalk about it I'm pretty sure. I have strong opinions on the matter as well, keen to read this when time permits.

    I loved the two Katy books! Haven't read them in ages though.
    I'm currently reading Frankenstein for the Romanticism elective in extension.
    Not sure if I did the quote thing right, sorry if I mess it up.

    I now read "Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow" by Yuval Noah Harari. A great book that claims the principles that organized society will undergo great changes in the 21st century.

    I know this author. His book "Sapiens: A Brief History of Humanity" made an impression on me.

    Re: What are you currently Reading?

    I am currently reading the Mulberry Bush by Charles McCarry. It is a really interesting adult spy book and I like how you aren't always certain of what exactly is happening with the characters' thoughts and what they hope to do concerning headquarters. The only issue I have with it is that there is so much to remember about the plot! Has anyone else read this book? I hope so. It is fantastic.

    Just finished The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White. I thought it was amazing retelling of the classic and loved it.

    Re: What are you currently Reading?

    'Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine'

    Easy read but not for simpletons if that makes sense haha.

    It's about this chic who's socially inept and thinks everyone around her are idiots that don't have social skills (because she completely miss interprets social queues.

    Was literally laughing the whole time it's a cack!

    Plus kind of looking into her journey of learning to socialise, love, blah blah....its also a bit of a thriller because you're finding out bit by bit why she's like and something mysterious happened in her past....

    Such a good read highly recommend!
