Books I've Read This Month

So I know this is a fashion blog, but recently, I've been too obsessed with reading to blog about fashion. For this reason, I wanted to share some books that I've read over the past month and really enjoyed.

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
This book made me happy to be young and alive. Wilde is particularly insightful about these two subjects. He was a playwright and this is his only novel. He was imprisoned for being an open homosexual in a time when it was not accepted, and this book is sprinkled with hints of that nature.

My Uncle Oswald by Roald Dahl
This book is a fucking riot. If you were obsessed with R.D. as a kid like I was, you'll love his only adult novel. He's insanely provocative and wildly funny.

Downtown Owl by Chuck Klosterman
Klosterman is typically a pop culture writer, so his novels are rich in references of the kind. That's what I especially enjoyed about this book, which was set in the small town in North Dakota in the '80s.

I'm currently reading The Best of Roald Dahl, which is a collection of his short stories. Once again, Roald Dahl is one of my literary heroes. I enjoy his snipey, quick-witted and sinister writing style. His short stories are especially evil, which I am loving.


I JUST started reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. I bought a book with the entire series in one book, which is convenient, although it's massive and won't be fun to ride my bike with. Still figuring this one out: anyone read it?

If you have any suggestions, let me know. I'm always looking for new books to read and I like recommendations very much.

Will there be a new Rihanna naked sex tape? That is what TMZ has been reporting this weekend, after the breakup of her 3 week old boyfriend Matt Kemp, as always with most celebrity breakups the celeb sex tape gets released a short time after, will the Rihanna naked Sex Tape actually be as good as they say? TMZ reports, yes, yes it will

He asked Rihanna to perform whatever song that came to mind for her. Rogers was obviously suprised on what great talent Rihanna had. Immediately, both Rogers and Rihanna made demos containing close to twelve tracks including the 2005 smash hit Pon De Replay and mailed the demos out to various recording comanies including Def Jam Recordings where Rihanna would eventually be signed onto.
