I am now reading Candide by Voltaire.
I personally didn't really like The Catcher in the Rye. I found it a bit boring tbh.

However I absolutely loved The Virgin Suicides and definitely recommend it! It's so haunting and beautiful

also didn't enjoy the catcher in the rye, read it because it's this "classic" but the guy only reminded me of some "rebellious emo-kid"

still reading the sookie stackhouse series, love 'em

Right now, I'm dealing with My Sister, My Love by Joyce Carol Oates, Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl, The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga and Wandering Star by J.M.G Le Clézio. I actually love them all, so far. YEY!
