    I’m reading Lolita right now – Nabokov is a literary genius.

    Another great book, if you ever get the chance to read it, is The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy. I just finished it and the way Roy weaves the characters’ past memories and experiences together with the present is mind-blowingly seamless. It’s a gorgeous read.
