For some reason, my January post was saved as a draft and never published. But you can read it here: https://harrytimes.blogspot.com/2019/02/january-what-i-read.html
I read some crap this month. Like these 3 books on getting pregnant when you are a million years old that seem to be based on TOTAL JUNK SCIENCE and make me think that since I cannot eat avocado or nut butter, I am totally barren for the rest of my life.
17. The Woman Code, 16. Taking Charge of Your Fertility, and 15. How to Conceive Naturally and Have a Healthy Pregnancy After 30. All you need to know is that a positive attitude is healing; flaxseed is better than sperm, and parabens re the devil.
These were also NOT GOOD.
14,. Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate: Gripping but terrible.
13. Shelter in Place by Nora Roberts: Same.
12. Little Broken Things by Nicole Baart: You guys. I don't even remember what this was about and I just turned the last page a second ago, but I know it was sliiiightly better than Nora Roberts.
11. Mr. and Mrs. American Pie by Juliet McDaniel: This was funny. I liked it a lot. But also it was total crap. I am not going to lie. All of these books were kind of disappointing. I am between library holds hauls and am just reading what's
10. Welcome to the World Baby Girl by Fannie Flagg: What can I say? It's terrible, but I am hooked on the Elmwood Springs books.
9. Yesterday I Was the Moon by Noor Unnahar: I loved this one!
8. Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis: Protestant work ethic, unchecked privilege, and deserving poor problems aside, this book is charming and really does have some good advice. There. I said it.
7. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch: Gah. THIS is why I don't like books by white dudes. BNuyt also, this book was super engrossing.
6. Conscience by Alice Mattison: This started slow for me, but then I realized I was in love with it.
5. Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert: I LOVE THIS BOOK, and it was just what I needed to read.
You Should Read These
4. The Last Romantics by Tara Conklin: I love a big sad family story.
3. In Pieces by Sally Field: This is great! Way better than your typical celebrity memoir.
2. A Life of my Own by Claire Tomalin: Oh, I loved this so much. She is so smart and so strong.
1. On the Come Up by Angie Thomas: THIS IS WONDERFUL. Maybe I liked it as much as The hate U Give.
So, if you are playing along at home, that means I am 40 books into the year. Only 160 to go!!
