I hate filling out grad school applications.

So, I have not finished a book lately because I have been tapping away at statements of purpose.

Here is what I am just starting: The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

It is gorgeous.

And here is what I will NOT be reading anytime soon, thank you very much:

The Castle in the Forest by Norman Mailer

I just cast aside Isolde by Rosaline Miles. It was overwritten and the dialogue was bad, and I was getting tired of everyone having overwrought emotional reactions to, like, leaves falling off trees. I read about a third of it before giving up simply because of my love for the Tristan and Isolde story, so I might come back to it at some point, just to see if it can regain my interest. But right now, I can't be bothered.
