The Coming Storm by Paul Russell
Another book about the blurred lines between teacher/student and adult/teen and lover/lover relationship. A boarding school boy falls for and seduces a new young teacher… and all the mayhem follows close behind. Actually a very good read.
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
Wildly intelligent and fun. Almost as good as Angels and Demons.
Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt by Anne Rice
Very interesting fictionalization of the story of Jesus Christ’s childhood. Very much enjoyed this book.
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Great, great book. Don’t know what else to say except ‘read it.’
Running With Scissors by Augusten Burroughs
Amazing! Incredibly funny and intelligent. One of my favorite books.
England, England by Julian Barnes
Hilarious irony. Brilliant.
Totally Joe by James Howe
So cute and funny. An easy, enjoyable read. Something for a lazy summer day.
