Philip Pullman's dark fantasy trilogy titled "His Dark Materials," ostensibly written for children, is actually literature of a much higher order. The name of the trilogy actually comes from a particularly powerful passage of Milton's "Paradise Lost," the great religious (epic?) poem whose central story is the thematic basis for this trilogy. #Books
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling - funnier than i expected. this book isn't really in chronological order and jumps from topic to topic so it's great to read when you don't have time to sit and read from cover to cover. just some random thoughts from mindy kaling - i really liked it.
