@Jensha hasn't started the annual thread so I shall. Post in here all the books you read this year, as well as any impromptu reviews, rants and questions. Did anyone have a new year's resolution to read more? I am here to hustle you along!
My reading resolution this year is to read more diverse kids and YA stuff- ie books by and/or about people of colour, from different cultural backgrounds and translated books. That is very much a work related resolution- my personal reading resolution is to recognize a reading rut and climb out of it sooner! If I'm reading a book I'm not enjoying I tend to put it down and not pick up anything for days/weeks at a time. I need to be more ruthless about discarding books that don't interest me.
Here's what I read in January:
All the light we cannot see- Anthony Doerr
Runners world complete guide to minimalism and barefoot running- Scott Douglass
Tenth of December- George Saunders
Every woman's guide to foot pain relief- Katy Bowman
The incredible adventures of Cinnamon Girl- Melissa Keil
How to be a woman- Caitlin Moran
Why not me?- Mindy Kaling
Standout of the month was definitely How to be a Woman. I HOWLED with laughter in some parts. Definitely didn't agree with a lot of it, but gosh she is one funny lady.
Tenth of December was also very good- reminded me a lot of Kurt Vonnegut.
Lots of non fic this month! Oh and bear in mind that January is always a big reading month for me. Time off + book store vouchers for Xmas= mega readathon!
