Dan Brown Inferno book cover

Dan Brown’s 4th book in the Robert Langdon series comes out next week, May 14th. It follows The Da Vince Code, Angels & Demons, and Lost Symbol. The new book is also available as a Kindle version.

The Great Gatsby trailer

 

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is one of America’s top 20th century novels, described as the epitome of American Literature. The character of Mr. Gatsby is the perfection of the cool, always poised, never phased rich men of leisure.

The novel is a great short read, and is set in the roaring 20′s when extravagant parties and spending was at its widest. The trailer makes the novel look more dramatic and fast-paced than it really is, but it also makes the novel look even more fantastic. If you haven’t read the novel yet, then try to read it before the movie comes out next month.

Google doodles The Brothers Grimm

 

Today’s google doodle is a celebration of the 200th anniversary of The Brothers Grimm tales. The tales are some of the best and most well known children’s’ fairytales in the entire world. The two bothers wrote more than 200 of the most successful fairytales, such as:

  • Rapunzel.
  • Snow White.
  • Little Red Riding Hood.
  • Hansel & Gretel.
  • Cinderella.
  • Tom Thumb.
  • The Elves & the Shoemaker.

Checkout Beyonce’s Poetry

Here’s a poem Beyonce wrote to fellow musician, Frank Ocean.

What do you think of it? Has she got it in her to be a great song writer? Were you moved by this 6th-grade poem?

The poem was written to encourage and support Ocean, so in that sense, it was perfectly written and powerful. But for a top international super pop star, she definitely could’ve done better.

I’m Looking For Good Books to Read

      

I’m just about the finish the “Millennium” trilogy, and so I’m looking for some good books to read once I’m done here.

   

I had read “The Jewel of Medina” a couple of years back, so when its sequel came out, I bought that too. I haven’t read “The Sword of Medina” yet, but I really would rather read something else if I could.

   

I still haven’t finished “Last Night at Chateau Marmont”, from the same author as “The Devil Wears Prada”. But only because it’s such a boring book, I don’t think I’ll ever really finish it if I had other options.

   

I’m going to read this new book I got called “How to Read Literature Like a Professor”; if only so that I could finish that horrible “Ulysses” book. I’m unable to read even a few pages of it at any time. So in the absence of any recommendations from you guys, I’ll probably be reading these two books next.

      

I’m looking something like “The Lovely Bones”, “About a Boy”, or even “Deception Point”.

Any recommendations?
