First, thanks for the welcome back comments on Wednesday. I missed everyone too! I promise I'll be back to visiting everyone's blogs soon.
Also, RaNdOm capitalization has been APPROVED by the masses! All letters are EQUAL on this bLog.
So. Oscar Wilde.
I've been reading The Picture of Dorian Gray for FUNSIES this past week and it's incredible. Seriously. Probably one of my new favorite books.
Why, you ask? It feels so REAL. Wilde writes poetically but realistically in my opinion. He'll describe the setting in some florid paragraph and then characters like Lord Henry and Dorian Gray will speak, say rather horrible things, actually, and it kinda puts everything in its place. If that makes sense. Maybe others that have read it will get what I'm trying to say. I'll probably talk more about this book once I finish it; there's simply too much to cover right now.
Besides Dorian Gray, Wilde was a FASCINATING guy. For reals. He was a poet, artist of sorts, novelist, journalist, and playwright. What COULDN'T the man do?! Mariah has a literary crush, if you couldn't tell. If he was a rock star I would throw him my panties (THERE'S a visual you can pretend you didn't just imagine).
Plus, when I'm reading, I can imagine my CELEB boyfriend, Ben Barnes, as Dorian Gray.
See? Resident Expert Friday is always hawt, even if I'm talkin' 'bout an author.
