Reading Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. Loved the movie of the musical so much I thought I'd go back to the source. Enjoying it but it's verrrry long. Guess that's petty to say about a classic of world literature!

I really loved Visit from the Goon Squad.


It was very good. I liked how she approached the narrative. It was very unique.
