Utopia by Lincoln Child (I think it's called Lethal Velocity now). So good! I highly recommend it!

Currently Reading The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick after watching the Amazon series of the same title. Definitely differences between the two, but am enjoying both a lot!

I have just made a start on Victory by Joseph Conrad, one of my favourite authors. This is one of his later novels, published in 1915.
She was becoming herself and daily casting aside that fictitious self which we assume like a garment with which to appear before the world.

I am reading "Little Women". I had heard a lot of good comments on it before I started it. It is a beautiful old timer classic! Leaves a sweet feeling inside you and smile on your face whenever you close the book for a pause. I haven't finished it yet, but I already have a feeling that this is going to be good one. :tiphat:

I'm reading the "The Mark of the King" by Jocelyn Green and "The Old Curiosity Shop" by Charles Dickens. I am really enjoying both.

A definitely weird book titled Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory by Caitlin Doughty. :D She's got a YouTube channel titled "Ask a Mortician" (which is what she does for a living) and this book tells (among other things) how and why she got into the funeral business. I'm not very far into it but I have reached the point where she warns that, if you're squeamish, this might not be the book for you.

Currently I am reading Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard. It is spectacular! The novel focuses on social injustice and power, not to mention love and hardship. Cannot wait to finish it!

I'm reading Watchmen by Alan Moore.
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.

At the moment I am in the middle of The Beautiful and Damned. It is very good so far, but I find I have to stop reading it for a few days.
