Books I Read This Week 2017 – 26

I read The Bright Hour on the airplane to Sydney. It was sad but beautiful and I really enjoyed it. It also reminded me to be grateful for my life. More and more.

I then read Do Not Become Alarmed without knowing much about it. I’d read Meloy’s short stories years ago and they were sad. This book wasn’t as sad but it was still really sad and I am not sure that I am glad I read it.

I knew nothing about Meredith Maran but Anne Lammot has a blurb on the cover and I love her so I checked out  The New Old Me. It was okay. It made me feel hopeful but it definitely wasn’t as wonderful as Anne Lammot’s non-fiction. To be fair, that’s a really high bar.

I then read The Answers but it was really weird. I kept thinking about putting it down the whole time. But I didn’t. In the end I am not sure I liked it. Interesting in places but not worth all the time in the end.

Can’t wait to read some great books again.
