November: What I Read

I wasted way too much time on the Internet this month, and I did too much work.  As a result, not a lot of reading going on.  But!  I have a cabinet full of books, and I scored Lena Dunham's memoir for $2 in the library rental section today, so December is promising.

My math has been spotty because Good Reads is glitchy, but I just went back and added up all my months and I *think* I have read 92 books so far this year, meaning I need to read a big 8 this month.  I will try.  We have a super secret Hanukkah surprise and some end of semester grading that could get in the way, so cross your fingers for me.


4.  One Plus One by JoJo Moyes:  This was a really predictable and sappy romance.  I heard really great things about this book and put it on hold at the library based on these great reviews and its inclusion on best lists, but now I just think this book had really good PR.
3.  Friendship by Emily Gould:  This was quirky and well-plotted and had killer dialog.  I loved the characters and the sad ending.  A good read-- breezy and fun.
2.  The Boy Who Drew Monsters by Keith Donohue:  OH M GOD this book scared the hell out of me.  I ended up staying up really late to finish it and then had to leave the light on.
1.  Women in Clothes by Sheila Heti:  Oh, wow.  This book is beautiful to read and lovely to look at-- a great, thoughtful read.
