Books I've Read in 2016 (June-September)
Yikes I haven't done one of these in a looooong time
- •The Story of a New Name - Elena FerranteThe Neopolitan novels were my jam this summer. I love Ferrante. I'm sad some one tried to doxx her. But the book was so good. Wow.
- •Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay - Elena FerranteUgh someone pls discuss Nino Sarratore with me? Idk what else to say TBH
- •Primates Of Park Avenue - Wednesday MartinThis could have had so much more juiciness. Fell flat IMHO. Also just totally a trashy beach read.
- •Raising Demons - Shirley JacksonThe follow up to Life Among the Savages. Wow I love Jackson's take on motherhood. It's realistic and compelling and she's a damn good writer.
- •Peyton Place - Grace MetaliousI read this for the Gilmore Girls book club then never actually went to the meeting. The book was weird and quick and good.
- •Too Big To Fail - Andrew Ross SorkinWow. So interesting. I recommend reading this 10000%. Also Sorkin is my new celeb crush. So attractive.
- •Harry Potter & the Cursed Child - JK Rowling & two other dudesI feel very mixed. Was a little fan fictiony but still fun.
- •Sex Object - Jessica ValentiA few friends & I formed a book club and this was our first read. So meh. She's interesting but coulda written this way better.
- •The Unfortunate Importance of Beauty - Amanda FilipacchiWow this was an interesting read. It reminded me of Dietland. Def would recommend.
- •The Story of the Lost Child - Elena FerranteThe last of the Neopolitan novels. Wow. An incredible story. Please read them stat.
- •Two Serious Ladies - Jane BowlesI read this book because of a Tennessee Williams recommendation on the cover. Weird and interesting and good but also very weird.
- •The Folded Clock - Heidi JulavitsI anticipate that this will be my favorite read of 2016. Incredible.
- •Eileen - Ottessa MoshfeghHaunting. Very Shirley Jackson or even Peyton Place. I loved it
