Books I Read This Week 2017 – 17

I first read The Animators. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it, but I did. I loved parts of it and wasn’t crazy about other parts of it. In the end, I am glad I read it. 

I then moved on to Lucky Boy knowing it was going to be a tough read and it was but I loved that the author didn’t try to make it didactic or easy and just gave us a story that was complex and gray, just like life is.

I was conflicted about reading Idaho but in the end I decided I wanted to and I am glad I did. It was another story that didn’t really resolve cleanly but I didn’t mind. I liked the layers of the story, I really liked some of the characters and I enjoyed the writing.

I am starting to sound repetitive but I also wasn’t sure about Perfect Little World. The premise sounded a bit odd and I didn’t want to read a cult story. But it was not a cult story. It was also layered, complex, messy and interesting. Not didactic. I really enjoyed it.

And finally, I ended the week with The Wanderers. It was interesting, enjoyable and worthwhile for me.

I chose not to read Word by Word for now, I also abandoned The Life Changing Magic of not Giving a F*ck.  I decided The Thousandth Floor would have to wait until the sequel is out. and Idaho this week, too. I haven’t decided if I will finish either. Let’s see. I have some books that I’ve been looking forward to in my queue so that might take precedence.
