Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

It’s time for me to share some spooky reads! .

I enjoyed this a lot though it was a bit dark. It seems to lose color as one progresses into the story, which is a result of Wilde’s genius. It seemed, in my memory, to begin with pink gardens in the light of day with light and jolly conversation and ended in a dark room, leaving behind a sinister residue of death. It gradually smudged away gaiety until Dorian’s soul was completely void of life. .
