I read 5 books in July for a total of 41 books this year.
I really enjoyed Daisy Jones & the Six. I loved the way it’s written like a documentary. It was different and fun and I loved all the talk about the creative process. “Daisy, someone who insists on the perfect conditions to make art isn’t an artist. They’re an asshole.”
I haven’t read the ‘real’ book or seen the show Handmaid’s Tale. I thought I’d start with the graphic novel as an introduction. It left me confused in spots but properly terrified.
I picked Guest Book up off the ‘new’ shelf at the library because I liked her book Swimming Studies. This one is quite different from that book and hard to explain other than *weird.* You can’t really tell from the photo and I didn’t notice when I picked it up but the subtitle is Ghost Stories. This is the second ghost-related book I’ve “chosen” in just a few weeks time so that’s extra weird.
The Rosie Result is a really fun read. This is the third in a series that begins with The Rosie Project. I loved the first one, second was just ok, and this last one I thought was as good as the first. I think that often happens in a series. If you like the show Atypical, you’ll probably like this book series (but maybe skip book 2.)
Everyone told me to listen to Oprah read What I Know for Sure and I didn’t do it. I’m just not an audio book person. I read it instead. Two favorite lines: “I try not to waste time — because I don’t want to waste myself” and “how you spend your time defines who you are.”
