February: What I Read

 12. The Year of Less by Cait Flanders: I listened to this, and it was great. Now I want to sell 70% of my belongings and go on a shopping ban. WILL I??? You don't have to be a Magic 8 Ball to guess PROBABLY FREAKING NOT.

11. The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides: Meh. A quick audiobook thriller.

10. A Faint Cold Fear by Karin Slaughter: Another great thriller to listen to while I walk and clean the kitchen.

9. A Promised Land by Barack Obama: Sometimes politician's books are boring. THIS ONE IS NOT.

8. The Lost Man by Jane Harper: I LOVE HER. She has written 4 books, the 2 I read last month, and the two on this list. You should read them-- all wildly entertaining and all SO evocative of place and climate.

7. Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter: OH MY GOODNESS. This is a thriller about some really sick stuff, but it was an EXCELLENT audiobook.

6. The Survivors by Jane Harper: OK. I have now read all 4 of Harper's books, and they're terrific. I listened to the first 3, and the reader is terrific-- I recommend the audio book for sure.

5. Siri, Who Am I? by Sam Tschida: This was a charming and delightful little audiobook, and I am sure it would be a similarly enjoyable read.

4. Before She Disappeared by Lisa Gardner: Not my favorite book of hers, but damn, she's awesome.

3. The Comeback by Ella Berman: Read with Jenna has yet to let me down.

2. Less by Andrew Sean Greer: This is a 2017 Pulitzer, and you can tell. Or at least I could tell after I googled it. But I only googled it because I loved it so much.

1. The 71/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton: This book! It's old, but OH MY GOD is it good! If you somehow missed this one (like I did), YOU NEED TO READ IT. I listened to it, and it was terrific as a read aloud, BTW.
