Books I Read This Week 2017 – 50

I skipped Erdrich’s previous novel but I loved the one before that (Round House) so I was excited to tackle her new dystopian novel: Future Home of the Living God. And while it was hard to read (because let’s admit it, none of her novels are easy to read – subject-matter wise) I enjoyed this book. I connect with her writing style even if I’ve had enough of dystopian for a while.

I picked up The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue for my Young Adult book club and I wanted to like it because everyone seems to have. But alas, it wasn’t for me. I don’t seem to connect with characters that go frolicking around regardless of what century they are in.

Your Best Year 2018: Life Edition was my new reflection/planning purchase for this year. I did 14 pages of journaling thanks to it on the plane to Sydney. I am enjoying using this book so far and look forward to continue using it. I’ve read all the pages up until the planner part starts which I will use in January.

I also finally got to read The Heart’s Invisible Furies which I’d checked out twice before. I made a list of books I want to make sure to read before 2017 is over and this one was on my list, so I decided I was going to tackle it for once and all. I am so so glad I did. I love love love loved this book. Even though I find Irish literature so difficult most of the time, this was a fantastic book. It was touching and funny. Some of the best dialogue I’ve read in a while. Loved this one.

The Deal of a Lifetime  is a short story by the wonderful Backman. I figured he wouldn’t disappoint me and of course he didn’t. It’s super fast read and I read it twice.

Fewer books this week since the Boyne book was so long. But so so worth it.

Books I Read this Week 2017 is a year-long project for 2017. You can read more about my projects for 2017 here.
