    Just finished 2 books for the weekend.

    1) Dan Brown's Lost symbol- a bit boring, and not as well written as the previous book.

    2) Terry Pratchett's Unseen Academia- talking about football and love. I will try to treasure any future books from this man, who knows when his dementia will start to affect his work.

    Fanfiction aside, I'm reading Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty.
    The first installment of the Jessica Darling series.
    Enjoying it so far.

    Currently reading Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote.

    I always know his works by reputations but never read it, it is of a refreshing nature being mainly written in simple english for simpler time.

    in cold blood is exceptional.

    i'm reading Monster of Florence by Douglas Preston with Mario Spezi. It's a true story about the most famous serial killer in Italy, but he's virtually unknown in the US. Thomas Harris attended some of the trials and based elements of Hannibal on the investigation.

    Recently read Michael Lewis' The Big Short - it was a small pleasant account of the global financial crisis.

    A biography always portray the subject matter in a more sympathetic light. That's what I've observed.
