we love reading over here.
So far this year I've read 17 books
some of those have been amazing.
some not so much.
These are the books I read in January and February...
Girls, Visions and Everything by Sarah Schulman - 80s New York - one of my favourite things to read about
Hell-Bent by Benjamin Lorr - a memoir about bikram yoga. Love reading yoga memoirs and this one is fascinating as it's all about competitive hot yoga.
Rules of Civility by Amor Towles - reading group book which was frothy and fun and set in New York in the 30s
The Days of Anna Madrigal by Armistead Maupin - delightful Tales of the City novel. May have cried
Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld - thought this was ok, slightly disappointed as loved Sittenfeld's previous books
My Dog Tulip by J.R Ackerly - a memoir about a dog from 1956, slightly charming, slightly odd
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini - not my kind of thing at all... would have given up on it, but was doing a book quiz for my mum.
Little Fluffy Gigolo Pelu volume 2 by Juko Mizuno - gah. cuteness and weirdness all wrapped up in pretty drawings
Before I Die by Candy Chang - Candy Chang is an artist focusing on community art, really fascinating.
The Stranger's Child by Alan Hollinghurst - reading group book for february. well written and interesting but a little long for me.
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell - lovely and charming young adult novel set in 1986
