For school I'm reading The Picture of Dorian Gray. (I'm also writing a paper on it. Eventually I'll post it so you can see why I haven't been blogging often.) So here's a teaser from DG and from the book I'm currently reading for review.
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
"There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all." ~Preface
The Vampire Underground by Brian Rowe
"I don’t care if the world started imploding on itself right now. I am going to make my movie, do you understand me? This is no longer a homework assignment. This is war. And you want to pull out our troops just before the last second. You’re nothing but a coward, Brin. And I’m not gonna put up with your shit anymore. Shut your mouth. Do what I say. And we will get through this day without me pummeling your ugly ass face into the ground.”
Anaya might have said more, but Brin would never know. When the van reached the top of the hill, the front tires plunged downward into a yard wide wedge of sunken mud. The van abruptly stopped, Sawyer exclaimed a vicious expletive, and Anaya went flying forward, her head smashing against the back of the driver’s seat.
“Owww!” she screamed. “What the hell!”
“I think…” Sawyer said, fear and confusion in his low voice. “I think we’re stuck.”
Got any addicting reads you're in the middle of right now?
