New Book Reviews

2014 Book #4: The Rithmatist

Here’s another book I chose almost solely based on its immediate availability on OverDrive. I’d just finished listening to 10% Happier (and was somewhere around half-through The Stand), and I was in the middle of a massive scanning project at work, which... read more

2015 Book #3: 10% Happier

I usually lump nonfiction reviews into bulk posts because I don’t have much to say about them. Same goes for Dan Harris‘s 10% Happier, but it gets its own post because I’m doing my best not to get behind. Which means this’ll be a short one.... read more

2015 Book #2: The Strange Library

What a (very tiny) book! Haruki Murakami‘s book release dates are the only ones to which I pay close attention. If there’s a new Murakami book translated into English, chances are I’ve read it. Okay, I have, as I’ve read all of his novels. All... read more

Friday Things: 1/23/2015

So I’m not very good at posting Things every week. I’m not sure whether I want to make myself be better about it or give up the venture entirely. We’ll see what happens. This week, anyway, you’re in luck! It appears that Haruki Murakami, one of... read more

2015 Book #1: 10:04

2015 Book #1: 10:04

I hate to start the new year off on a bad note, but damn. I hated soooo many things about this book. Don’t worry, this’ll be a quick review. 10:04 is by Ben Lerner, who, I gather, is mostly a poet. It’s like he tried to write his version of The Bell... read more

Friday Things: 1/9/15

Okay, okay. I’m not very good at posting things Every Single Friday. I blame Christmas, the New Year, and general laziness. And not spending much time on the internet because I was playing stupid computer games. But here we are, a little over a week into 2015,... read more
2014: The Year in Books

2014: The Year in Books

Here we are at the beginning of another year. As usual, I read Lots of Things last year, and I plan to do the same in 2015. Here’s what I read in 2014, formatted as always: bold means I really liked it, italics means I hated it, and plain ol’ text means it... read more
2014 Book #64: The Enchanted

2014 Book #64: The Enchanted

Aaaand we’ve made it to the last book review of the year! Yay! 64 is a record, though I got close last year. I think I’ve written about every book but one about diabetes. I skipped that one (though it’s excellent) because I’m the only person I... read more
2014 Book #63: Over Sea, Under Stone

2014 Book #63: Over Sea, Under Stone

Here I am, at the end of the year, in catch-up mode AGAIN. Meh. Maybe my 2015 resolution needs to be to get my blogging act together. (Really? you ask. No, not really. My actual plan is to outlaw recreational cheese and nuts in my house. Maybe I’ll last ten... read more
