I know I haven’t been around. Working two jobs (one of which was an hour away) kind of took away any sort of lazing around that I had while still writing my thesis. I have been reading though. So here’s a little of what has passed across my bookshelf (these are just the novels, I edited out the boring books on linguistics and the biographies.)
This was a good rollicking kids book. Completely unbelievable, but really fun.
This is such a sad book on one level. Talk about reality.
Apparently I am into psychological mysteries. This wasn’t the better of the two, but she’s a good writer.
This was really good. A lot like the Secret History.
These were incredible short stories about the Bengali immigrant experience.
This was a harsh book, but beautiful in its own way.
I didn’t want to read this because of Oprah, but it was a long read, so I tried it. It was really really really good.
Mystery. This one was only so-so.
This book was so confusing and subversive. I really enjoyed it.
This one was also really good.
I haven’t seen the movie, but I devoured this book.
This wasn’t anywhere near as good as the Other Boleyn Girl, but it was okay.
A friend recommended this. It was good in a random sort of way.
This was a lovely book. Really twisted, confusing, and incredibly well written.
The first graphic novel I’ve ever read. It wasn’t bad.
This was hilarious.
I loved this book. I always have.
This book was slow to pick up, but it was really good.
This was lovely. Really well written.
I liked this one, but it took 3 tries to get into it.
These were really good kids books. Just really
This was like science fiction meets Charles Dickens. A little overwrought.
I’m in the middle of a whole bunch more, but these are the ones I enjoyed and finished.
I tried to give you just a tiny blurb about each, but that’s the shortest version. Give a note if you want to hear more about any of them.
As for me….I’m doing well. I’m on the job market, and I have a really good opportunity hopefully…we’ll see. I love all of you. Sorry I have been so busy.
