December: What I Read


10.  Heartbroken by Lisa Unger:  Meh but I listened to it on really cold walks.

9.  Baby Doll by Hollie Overton:  Creepy.

8.  The Regulars by Georgia Clark:  I usually like the appearance-altered-by-potions plot line, but this fell flat for me.

7.  Truevine by Beth Macey:  If this tale of kidnapping and circus performing in the Jim Crowe south had been written y a historian, I would have been all over it, but Macey is a journalist, and her timeline was confusing and lacked context.

6.  Hand to Mouth by Linda Tirado:  I listened to this one, and the author's voice is EXCELLENT (in both senses of the word).

5.  The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer:  I listened to this, too.  HILARIOUS.

4.  A Woman in Charge by Carl Bernstein:  This guy!  Hated Hillary!  But the book is gooooood-- way better than her own (totally fake sounding) memoirs.

3.  The Yoga of Max's Discontent by Karan Bajaj:  Quirky and lovely.

2.  Good as Gone by Amy Gentry:  A good thriller.  Read it.

1.  Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye:  OH THIS BOOK!!  Read it right away!  Goes down with The Night Circus as a book that creates a world.
