    @FearlessLeader do you 'follow' Katie Bowman? Are you aligned? Do you thrust your ribs? 😉

    October

    Because you'll never meet me- Leah Thomas
    Where'd you go, Bernadette? - Maria Semple
    The Notorious Pagan Jones- Nina Berry
    Elizabeth is missing- Emma Healey
    Book- John Agard
    The other side of the world- Stephanie Bishop



    So many great, great books last month. The other side of the world was astounding and beautiful and heartbreaking. Because you'll never meet me was so interesting with such a great premise, and Where'd you go Bernadette was one of the first satires I've enjoyed in a long time. All the others were pretty good too!

    For November I've already finished The Strays by Emily Bitto and that was another incredible book. The last two have been fairly downbeat though so I think I'm looking for something a bit more lighthearted next up.

    I've just started following her. I think some of her stuff is a bit extreme tbh- a bit like the hardcore paleo folk. I do consciously untuck my pelvis now though! I did ballet growing up and realised I've been walking around with a tucked pelvis and sucked in stomach nearly my whole life.

    There's a fb group called Aligned and Well and she has a fb page called Nutritious Movement, as well as her own page (Katy Bowman). This is in addition to her books.

    I stumbled across her two years ago and have taken on board a few better habits - like untucking my pelvis and trying to hold my baby with my arms and not hips - but it's easy to slide backwards.

    And yes the 'no bras' thing is a step too far for me, among others.

    November

    The Strays- Emily Bitto
    Modern Romance- Aziz Ansari
    The Women- TC Boyle


    Gah, I really need to give up on The Women. I sort of feel like I'm enjoying it but I keep putting it down and not picking it back up- I started it 3 weeks ago and I'm barely halfway through. Might be time to ditch it. The other two were great though!
    Currently also just started Gone Girl, but I really can't stand the female narrator's chapters, I hate the way their written so I don't know that I'll continue with that one either.

    Biggest surprises- The Tournament (not usually a genre I'd read but so much fun) and the First Bad Man- I thought it might be too quirky and twee but it was surprisingly touching and real.

    How was everyone else's year of reading??
