Read (Past-Tense)

(Since July 2017)
  1. 'This Is How It Always Is' by Laurie Frankel
    Really beautiful read. Got me out of my head. Made all the more powerful by the fact that I didn't know anything about the plot beforehand.
  2. 'Landline' by Rainbow Rowell
    My least favorite Rainbow Rowell book I've read so far—but still a really good read. Still made me feel very uncomfortable, realizing there's a person in the world that didn't even have to read my mind in order to write this book—she just gets me.
  3. 'The Handmaid's Tale' by Margret Atwood
    I listened to this on Audible, which normally means I'm paying less attention. But within the first two sentences of this book, I knew I was going to have to sit up straight and stay completely focused until I finished it.
  4. 'Red Queen' by Victoria Aveyard
    So I'd seen this recommended to me in a few different places. And I missed reading YA. At first it was entertaining, but by the end, it was genuinely hard for me to get through all the cliches and the first draft word choice. Sigh. I'm ready for a new awesome YA book series that the whole world is obsessed with. (But I *really* don't recommended this book.)
