I'm reading The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell right now, it's about Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City, and I'm really loving it so far. :)

Ever since I've been eight or nine I've been standing on the shoreline

I'm reading Robert Ludlums "The Bourne Ultimatum" now

"So you ask me how it feels to be a stick in the wheel
I tell you honey it feels alright
to be another clog in the wrecking machine
wouldn't even cross my mind"

My favorite book so far, is Paint It Black, by Janet Fitch. I think I'll just copy paste what it's about, since I'm not good in telling long stories in a few sentences :)

From the inside cover:

Josie Tyrell, art model, teen runaway, and denizen of LA's rock scene, finds a chance at real love with art student Michael Faraday. A Harvard dropout and son of a renowned pianist, Michael introduces Josie to a world of sophistication she had never dreamed existed and to his spiritual quest for the beauty that shines through everyday experience. But when she receives a call from the Los Angeles County coroner, asking her to identify her lover's dead body, her bright dreams all turn to black. "What happens to a dream when the dreamer is gone?" This is the question Josie asks as she searches for the key to understanding Michael's death. And as she struggles to hold on to the true world he shared with her, she is both repelled by and attracted to Michael's pianist mother, Meredith, who holds Josie responsible for her son's torment. Joined by their grief, the two women are soon drawn into a twisted relationship that reflects equal parts distrust and blind need. Passionate, wounded, and fiercely alive, Josie Tyrell walks the brink of her own destruction as she fights to discover what is left of the brilliant vision of the future she and Michael once nurtured together.

I liked it for several reasons. First, it happens in the early eighties. Second, it's about art (well, not all the time, but I like it, since I'm in Art Academy for the first year now). And third, it's kind of a sad love story. I like it when there's not a happy ending, for a change. Although I was kinda sad to have finished the book, knowing there won't be a part two :P

I'm reading trylogy by Swedish author, Stieg Larsson. I read first book, and now I'm reading the second one called "Girl who plays with fire" (sth like that) - I'm not a good translater of titles (;

I love those books! Seen the movies? I understood so much more after reading the books (I saw the movies first).

Have you read Animal Farm?

Well you know how the story goes, if it's too loud then you're too old.
