What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”


While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.

The Diver's Clothes Lie Empty: A Novel

The Diver's Clothes Lie Empty: A Novel - Vendela Vida Grade A creepy psychological thriller. A woman is traveling alone and all of her identification is lost in a country where she does not speak the language and now has to survive. It's not a gory survival story either--there's much more psychological damage from taking on enough different personas (including getting a job as a body double for a famous actress under an assumed name).

(On a side note--a very scary-in-a-good-way novel right before traveling abroad for a month!)
