I read some good shit this month. But I am starting to feel like I read so many books so quickly that I can't remember any of the details. But one book I do remember is Still Alice, so my memory lapses are freaky.
I am trying really hard to lose weight after I reached near-pregnancy numbers thanks to all the summer booze, and I have stopped drinking except for 1 days a week, AND THIS IS THE DAY, so. I thought you should know that.
10. Survive the Night by Danielle Vega: DO NOT EVEN BOTHER.
9. Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid: Meh.
8. Among the Ten Thousand Things by Julia Pierpont: I just. It wasn't awesome.
7. The Unfortunate Importance of Beauty by Amanda Filipacchi: Funny, but I could not suspend my disbelief quite this much.
6. So You've Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson: FASCINATING! The best nonfiction book I have read in awhile.
5. Did You Ever Have a Family by Bill Clegg: W.O.W. You should probably just go ahead and read this one.
4. Summerlong by Dean Bakopaulos: I LOVED this book about Grinnell, Iowa-- it almost a little reminded me of my favorite favorite Richard Russo.
3. Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll: I loved this book! I HATED the main character, but I couldn't stop thinking about her.
2. Make Your Home Among Strangers by Jennine Capo Crucet: SO good. About a freshman in college and her Cuban family-- a terrific coming-of-age story.
1. Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal: Oh, I loved this so much. A book you'll remember forever.
ETA: That's 112 books so far this year. THAT I REMEMBER.
