June: what are you reading?

Post by Blush » Sat Jun 02, 2018 2:33 pm

I finished Fire and Fury. There were some tidbits in there I had not seen reported already, so it was interesting.

Then I just read The Hormone Myth by Rebecca Stein Deluca. There wasn't a whole lot in there I hadn't read before but it was also interesting.

Now I'm finally going to read The Handmaid's Tale.

I just finished Class Mom by Laurie Gelman which was really funny. I didn't love the story behind it but the class mom stuff was hilarious. I don't know that Marie comes here but she should read it.

I have a stack of all similar books (smart chick lit) but I'm in the mood for thriller so we'll have to see what I pick up next; i might need to hit the library.

I finished the Handmaid's Tale. I couldn't put it down; I forgot how good Margaret Atwood is, and I wanted more, even though it was chilling.

Next is The Coincidence Makers by Yoav Blum.

I just abandoned The Glitch at about 50 pages in. It was just annoying me.

I started The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter. It seems familiar to me but it's not on my reading log as having read it. Hmmm...

I finished Lilac Girls. It was good, not great. It took me a while to get into and, although it was based on true facts, the author made up some things that didn't work for me. Still, recommended if you're into WW2 novels.

Then I started The Heart's Invisible Furies by John Boyne, which had been on my list for a while. As much as I try to avoid this, I have huge expectations for it. It seems so much up my alley. I was sucked right in.

I hadn't read The Good Daughter -- I did end up liking it.

I have Little Monsters by Kara Thomas in my work bag; hopefully I can start it at lunch.

I finished The Coincidence Makers. It was an interesting premise and well told.

Now I have Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdich.

I'm still reading (and enjoying) The Heart's Invisible Furies, but yesterday I read a short book by a Brazilian plus-size model. She claims to have never wanted to be thinner, to have always loved her body as it is, and that she's saddened by how much energy women spend obsessing about weight. I think she's convinced me. I so wish there'd been role models like her when I was a teen/in my early 20s. But back then fat people in Brazil were an aberration that should hide from public view. Here she is: https://www.google.com/search?q=fluvia+ ... 80&bih=579
