I like books, and I like lists. Let’s make this a monthly thing, shall we?
- Brain on Fire, by Susannah Cahalan
A memoir (of sorts) about anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis. Not since the essay about Morgellons Disease in The Empathy Exams have I had such hypochondria.
- The Improbability of Love, by Hannah Rothschild
Parts of this book were written from the point of view of a painting. And the painting was an asshole. Other than that, it was okay.
- Stardust, by Neil Gaiman
I loved the style, I loved the story, but I hated the star.
- Not Working, by Lisa Owens
I misread the back cover, and spent the entire book waiting for something that never happened. Don’t be like me.
- The Girl Before, by JP Delaney
I really enjoyed this one up until about 80%, at which point there were so many plot twists it was like reading an infomercial. …But wait! There’s more!
It seems I read much less in February than I did in January. Can I blame it on that there were 3 less days in the month?
Or maybe it’s because I spent most of my time sitting on my couch, drinking hot chocolate.
Also, happy [UK] World Book Day! (Apparently the rest of the world celebrates on April 23, but the UK celebrates today. Not very worldly, if you ask me.)
