I wasted way too much time on the Internet this month, and I did too much work. As a result, not a lot of reading going on. But! I have a cabinet full of books, and I scored Lena Dunham's memoir for $2 in the library rental section today, so December is promising.
My math has been spotty because Good Reads is glitchy, but I just went back and added up all my months and I *think* I have read 92 books so far this year, meaning I need to read a big 8 this month. I will try. We have a super secret Hanukkah surprise and some end of semester grading that could get in the way, so cross your fingers for me.
4. One Plus One by JoJo Moyes: This was a really predictable and sappy romance. I heard really great things about this book and put it on hold at the library based on these great reviews and its inclusion on best lists, but now I just think this book had really good PR.
3. Friendship by Emily Gould: This was quirky and well-plotted and had killer dialog. I loved the characters and the sad ending. A good read-- breezy and fun.
2. The Boy Who Drew Monsters by Keith Donohue: OH M GOD this book scared the hell out of me. I ended up staying up really late to finish it and then had to leave the light on.
1. Women in Clothes by Sheila Heti: Oh, wow. This book is beautiful to read and lovely to look at-- a great, thoughtful read.
