Another month has passed, so let’s check out what I did all month!
Historia, Historia by Eleanor Stanford is a great short book about Eleanor & her husband’s time in the Peace Corps, and her battle with an eating disorder and loneliness during that time. Loved it!
Oh my goodness, I loooooved A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki! Nao is a teenager who is in turmoil, being bullied, and trying to keep her father from committing suicide. Such a great book from an unexpected point of view!
Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk is such a great read, even if you have seen the movie! Um basically, that’s all I have to say. Read it. It’s about fighting and making soap from something soooo gross you can’t even imagine. And then there’s a twist you won’t see coming. . . unless you’ve seen the movie!
Whomp whomp. Skip this Atwood and stick with one of her better reads like Oryx & Crake or The Handmaid’s Tale.
I also read Egyptian Gothic, which is totally a book to skip.
But then I read The Missing File by D. A. Mishani, which is a great book about a missing teen and a totally creepy neighbor!
