Books I Read This Week 2018 – 43

The best part of this week was getting to sit with Killing Commendatore. I am a big fan of Murakami. His books are always different in mind-blowing ways that no other writer can ever come close to and I just really like being lost in a Murakami-world even when I don’t like many of his specifics. This book was no exception. It was weird. And I really enjoyed reading it.

I then wanted something lighter and Not If See You First  was perfect. I read it super fast and really enjoyed it for what I wanted then.

I was still feeling a bit heavy and worn out and  Love and Other Words made me feel happier.

Which might be why I thought it was ok to read Broken Things which was dark and unpleasant. I read Lauren Oliver’s first book (If I Fall) and it was one of my favorite reads. I have read all her books since then (except for Replica) and disliked all of them so I think this is officially me giving up on Lauren Oliver. 

The second best part of this week was Anne Lamott’s Almost Everything  coming out. I read it on Tuesday when it came out. It’s a fast read but it’s wonderful and healing and just everything I’ve come to expect from Lamott. I love her so.

I then read What if it’s Us. I was a fan of Simon and the Homo Sapiens Agenda and have read several Silvera books but alas this book was no better than mediocre. Just nothing to write home about.

I then picked up  Maeve in America  which I discovered from the library. I’d never heard of her but the essays were funny, thoughtful and I enjoyed listening to them.

Quite a good week considering I had two of my favorite authors in one week.

    Have you read Children of Blood and Bone? I just finished it and really enjoyed it. It’s one of those I wish I had a book club to discuss it with.
