BOOKS

This is my first book review post in a year! How sad. I certainly haven't stopped reading. Parenthood is time-consuming and exhausting, but I HAVE CERTAIN REQUIREMENTS. One is that I need to read. When I'm not reading, I feel depressed.

(Other requirements: Chocolate, wine, sunshine, human interaction)

So anyway, Imma just post a list of what I've read in the last year, with a quick rating, because: TIME CONSTRAINTS.

- The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell: OMFG SO GOOD. Please Hollywood do not pull a Cloud Atlas. This is another book that should never be a movie but is HELLA GOOD.

- The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood: Very nice dystopian future novel by one of the best.

- Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout. Decent. Sort of depressing.

- Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami. So bizarre but pretty good.

- The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Entertaining. Well written. I didn't love it but it's a good book.

- Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan. I enjoyed this due to my periodic hypochondria.

- The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker. SO FRIGGING GOOD.

- The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. SO, SO GOOD.

- Want Not by Jonathan Miles. Definitely entertaining and smart.

- Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth. Meh.

- The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. Really good!

- And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. Amazing and heartbreaking.

- Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. One of the best of the year. READ IT!!

I also read at least a dozen baby books, most of them about how to get your kid to sleep HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA *sob* that is a post for a whole other time.

Happy reading! Tell me what your favorite books of the year are!
