New! The Picture of Dorian Gray

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

About: Oscar Wilde's story of a fashionable young man who sells his soul for eternal youth and beauty is one of his most popular works. Written in Wilde's characteristically dazzling manner, full of stinging epigrams and shrewd observations, the tale of Dorian Gray's moral disintegration caused something of a scandal when it first appeared in 1890. (from goodreads.com)

Ok so I know Oscar Wilde is long passed away, so technically this isn't a new book. Although I just finished watching the new British version of Dorian Gray and I must say I was intrigued. I've always loved the story or Dorian Gray but just never found time (or I forgot) to read it. So this one will be a borrow from my brother and I cannot wait to start reading it! I'm actually infatuated with scandalous Mr. Gray, I'm grinning just thinking about reading it and getting lost in Wilde's twisted world.
