Books on My Nightstand - Oct 2015
These are the books I have already started, or plan to start reading ASAP. As you can see, I have very eclectic tastes and a large nightstand
- •The Ice TwinsIntense mystery! I bought this based on the recommendation of a friend with whom I discussed my love for The Girl on the Train. Haven't started it yet, but I'm excited!
- •Nine StoriesLove this. Bought it based on @bjnovak 's short story recommendation list. Short Story Authors to Check Out if You Like George Saunders Read 3 stories so far!
- •Modern RomanceAziz Ansari is one of my absolute faves, and this book is such an interesting look at relationships. I started reading it a few weeks go, and stopped, but I am determined to finish. Onto the nightstand it goes!
- •The SilencingThis was an impulse buy at the register. I recognized Kirsten Powers' face from The Daily Beast, and thought reading this might make me smarter. It tackles the ever-interesting topic : free speech vs political correctness
- •All the Light We Cannot SeeI know literally nothing about this book except that my mom wants me to read it. That's reason enough for me!
- •UncontainableAs someone who frequently wastes hundreds of dollars on unnecessary organizational systems at The Container Store, I was delighted at the opportunity to learn more about the guy who is brainwashing me into it.
- •Yes PleaseWe all know that Amy Poehler is a perfect angel. Her book is hilarious. I know this because it's been in my Audible library forever, and I recently started listening to it on a plane. I was laughing so hard, the flight attendant came to make sure I was okay. I need to finish this one in private!
- •Sharp ObjectsAnother book on audible! This is by Gillian Flynn, of Gone Girl fame. It's amazing so far, but it was probably a mistake get it on audible because listening to it is somehow way scarier than reading it. But, I'm in too deep now. I have to finish!
- •Spoiled BratsI've had this one for a while. It showed up on my Amazon homepage based on some other combination of books I bought. I can't wait to start!
- •MacbethI've read most of Shakespeare's canon, but this one somehow slipped through the cracks. I feel stupid when people reference it because I have no idea what they're talking about, and so I must read it.
