Recent Reads – January

My boyfriend surprised me with a subscription to Amazon Unlimited for Christmas.  Super thoughtful!  It doesn’t give you ALL of the books but there are quite a few I’ve been wanted to read plus lots of new suggestions.  Between that & Overdrive (the library’s digital download site) & a couple paperbacks borrowed from a friend this is going to be the Year of Reading for me.

Non-fiction:

David & Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell – such a good read. I also recommend Outliers.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling.  I love Mindy.  Fun fact: I read this in her voice.  At some point I switched over to “…Then Stay Fat” on my Kindle & picked it up the next morning to read, thinking I was still reading “Is Everyone…” and continued reading in Mindy’s voice till I realized pages later that Mindy was not, in fact, giving me tough love weight loss advice.

…Then Just Stay Fat – Straight talking weight loss help.  It’s all up to you (or me, as the case may be).

Fiction:

The Book Does Not Exist – This was suggested to me after I read John Dies at the End, which is a major fave of mine.

I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream – A collection of super weird short stories that are in turns sci-fi, fantasy & horror.

Harvest Home – long & worth it.

Fifty Shames of Earl Grey: A Parody – Made me laugh out loud. Apparently “parody” is a whole category of books.  I had no idea.
