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
  1. The Ice Twins
    Intense 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!
  2. Nine Stories
    Love 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!
  3. Modern Romance
    Aziz 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!
  4. The Silencing
    This 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
  5. All the Light We Cannot See
    I know literally nothing about this book except that my mom wants me to read it. That's reason enough for me!
  6. Uncontainable
    As 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.
  7. Yes Please
    We 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!
  8. Sharp Objects
    Another 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!
  9. Spoiled Brats
    I'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!
  10. Macbeth
    I'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.
