Finally finished The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy. The most beautifully written book I've ever read. The ending was heartbreaking and tragic but it finished with pure love. I've never read something so touching and profound. 'The Love Laws' being caste and class and knowing you'd defy it for love? Wow.

Now I'm reading Yuval Noah Harari's book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. It helps to look at our species through the prism of history, selection and evolution. It also shows how our future, which so many of us think, can look like. Also this book helps me in writing cause and effect essay outline and many statements from book I use in this work.

Finished Call Me By Your Name and I'm bawling my eyes out, just as perfect as the film.

Childhood memories. 8-)

I loved the first 3 books when I was younger, but was really disappointed by the 4th. Maybe it was weaker than its predecessors, maybe I was just too old to enjoy it idk..
