It’s that time again! End of the month means a tally and quick review over the good, the bad and the dismal books I’ve read.
February being a short month, I was surprised to find out that I still kept up with January and finished nearly the same amount of books. So without further delay… (oh, and sorry about the ridiculous formatting with the images…wordpress isn’t cooperating tonight).
Books Finished: 4
- The House at Riverton – Kate Morton
- The Little Stranger – Sarah Waters
- Push – Sapphire
- Me & Emma – Elizabeth Flock
Books Abandoned: 1
- The Secret History – Donna Tartt
Books Postponed: 1
- Ava Gardner: Love is Nothing – Lee Server ( I AM gonna finish this one…. but I just wasn’t in the mood for non-fiction. It’s really good so far though.)
Books in Progress: 1
- White Teeth – Zadie Smith
Definitely a tie between Me & Emma and The Little Stranger.
I suppose it’s because they both have really big twists in them and both have “unreliable” narrators who aren’t really who you might perceive them to be. If I had to pick one of the two, it’d definitely be The Little Stranger. Sarah Waters is always good anyhow.
Probably because I abandoned it:
I desperately wanted to like this book–I even ignored my own 50 page rule and read well into the 100’s! But I couldn’t do it. It was like, Dead Poets Society only majorly sucky. Really. A bunch of pretentious, rich kids majoring in Classics (Greek in particular). I mean, it was almost like being back at school again–either the characters were stereotypes or my classmates were stereotypes. Or both. I’m not sure.

I absolutely love this book so far. Hi-la-ri-ous! I have a feeling it might be my favorite book next month…..
