35 Books update: Books 1-6
I’m reading 35 books this year, as you may recall. I made a video about the first six.
- Asking For It by Lilah Pace, as recommended on Book Riot
- The Hunter and the Wild Girl by Pauline Holdstock, with thanks to Goose Lane Editions
- The Outside Circle by Patti Laboucane-Benson
- The Vegetarian by Han Kang
- Mislaid by Nell Zink
- In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner
The first six of the year were a bit of a bust. The Vegetarian blew me away at first, but hasn’t stuck with me. Since then, I’ve read two phenomenal books, which you will hear more about soon: Birdie by Tracey Lindberg and Cat’s Eye by Margaret Atwood.
Your willpower astounds me, and I love how wide-ranging you are. As for graphic novels: Saga!
P.S. Your eyebrows look fantastic.
I didn’t get into Saga. Read the first two volumes.
I only make videos when my eyebrows are on fleek. So like twice a year.
I almost aspirated my tea laughing at that.
I loved Birdie, and it’s probably been almost 20 years since I read Cat’s Eye – so looking forward to your next book ‘report’. As for the ones in this video, The Hunter and the Wild Girl appeals to me the most. I was interested in The Outside Circle, but now it doesn’t feel quite so urgent (which is just as well).
Great video! 🙂
You’ll like The Hunter. Unlike The Vegetarian, it’s growing on my over time.
Video? I’ve been resisting,mostly because i hate myself on camera, but I’m impressed!
I’m still reading Cat’s Eye and you’re right, it’s getting better.
