  1. All Grown Up, by Jami Attenberg
    Loving this short novel about being a single, late 30s artist in NYC. I'm also v lucky to have scored an advance review copy — it's not out till March. Also I don't think it's going to end in her getting coupled up, so three cheers for that. 8/10.
  2. Find Her
    aka suspense smut. aka mindless brainless entertainment while I check out. 😐

  3. Th Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
    Got it because I was intrigued and curious by what @quixotic said about it, it was slow for me to get into but I raced through the final 100 pages. A bit too "parable" for me, but I liked the ideas and the boy's adventure/quest. I can see why it's re-readable.... 8/10

  4. Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone ...late to the party but this is the series I'm reading with my 10 year old (we just finished Percy Jackson) and I love it! 💜

  5. The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle
    A YA novel that intersperses fantasies and secrets. "It’s the accident season, the same time every year. Bones break, skin tears, bruises bloom." The Dublin writer uses poetic language to tell of a month in the life of 4 students. A must read. 5 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️.

  6. You Can't Touch My Hair by Phoebe Robinson
    I have a little bit of "famous comedian lady writes vague book" fatigue, but this is good and smart and she's unafraid to get real about feminism and being a black woman. And it's funny.

  7. Sonnets from the Portuguese by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
    Sometimes you just feel like you wanna read some poetry, right?

  12. Promise of Shadows by Justina Ireland
    Just started. Greek mythology bars which is super up my alley. Into it so far.

  13. Heartless by Marissa Meyer
    I have many thoughts - for example pertaining to how well-known the Wonderland universe is and how that affects a "prequel" like this. I'm really enjoying it so far, except that I'm not getting much reading done at the moment. 🙈

  14. A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry
    I am only about 100 pages in and am already invested in the characters and their stories. Can't wait to see where the story goes.

  18. Dept of Speculation — Jenny Offill
    Forget the Emma Straub book! I admit to shamelessly scouring for short book suggestions to help with my Goodreads quota and I found this on a list by @bjnovak . It is sublime — an engrossing and quick read, an abstract take on a marriage with the keen eye and wry, sad humor that reminds me of early Lorrie Moore and Amy Hempel. Loved it.

  19. Finished this on Monday and absolutely loved it (and her)!

  20. I just finished 15th Affair by James Patterson & will start this one tonight.

  21. Call the Nurse - totally charming so far!

  22. Modern Lovers — Emma Straub
    I dunno, you guys. I'm about 25% in and I Think I may have discovered that I don't actually like Emma Stroud. I really liked The Vacationers but couldn't finish Other People We Married and I'm struggling with this one. It's just kinda...boring. Honestly, I have to finish two more books before years end to meet my good reads goal. Thinking of abandoning this for something short and breezy
