In another just for funsies post, I thought I would share what I’ve been reading (or, listening to), and my impressions; followed by what’s up next in my Audible queue.
Shrill: Notes From A Loud Woman, by Lindy West. It’s a memoir. Hilarious, poignant and spot-on.
The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins: Gripping. I was riveted from beginning to end. My only issue with this book as an audiobook is that it reads like journal entries by different characters and in audio form its a little hard to keep up.
Bream Gives Me Hiccups, by Jesse Eisenberg. It’s no secret that Jesse Eisenberg is my celebrity crush; with his nerdy-bass voice and those curls. This, his debut book, is a well-executed work in humor writing. Clever and witty; an enjoyable read.
Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, by David Sedaris: Funny musings on life and love. I enjoyed listening to this book in the evenings after work; it was like talking with a very funny friend.
Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell: I love this book. I’ve listened to it thrice. Well-written, engaging story. The captivating story – within – the – story is covered in the sequel, Carry On.
Snake Oil: The Art of Healing and Truth Telling, by Becca Stevens. Becca Stevens is the founder of Thistle Farms. This book is a wonderful memoir which includes recipes for healing essential oil blends. I use her anointing oil blend to make an anointing balm of my own.
Next up in my queue:
Lily and the Octopus, Steven Rowley
Carry On, Rainbow Rowell
A Man Called Ove, Frederik Backman
Devil in the White City, Erik Larsen
