Now reading:
Dostoievsky's A Gentle Creature (also known as The Meek Girl). Once again, Fyodor Mikhailovich is blowing my mind out, what a master! :bow:

Next: My name is Red... by you know who :ninja:

I borrowed from our library "My name is Red" also...but the book was so big that I would not have been able to read it in 21 days... Not in English.  :(  I will wait till some publishing house will publicate it in my native language....

Sounds interesting - especially the title of the book 8-)
Notices down the name of author and book title... on her long long long list...

Today I ended the Oscar Wilde's fiction diary and also Antikrista by Amélie Nothomb. I liked even her first book. Her novels are very short but very intensive about feelings...and personalities.

Now I plan to read
George Orwell: 1984
Mary Shelley: Frankenstein
Bram Stoker: Dracula

I am not sure which book to take into the bus to Norway :/

I remember mentioning that one somewhere around. Very good indeed.

Hmm...tomorrow I'm supposed to go to the library to borrow a book that I have to read for school...it's called U registraturi, written by a Croatian writer Ante Kovačić...

There was a TV show, also called U registraturi,  and I watched it twice...and hopefully book will be as good as the TV show, although, from what I've heard...it's not... :P
We'll see...

George Orwell - "Animal Farm"
I sort of liked it, but it is depressing in some points. :ninja:
