2019 January Book Dump

January found me with stacks of half finished books. This usually isn’t my MO however, I have had outside forces influencing me. I’ve hired someone to help me clean my house and she picks up my books and stows them away. She is a lifesaver in getting me and keeping me organized. She has made finishing books difficult.

In addition to the large pile of half finished books, I am trying to work my way through all the books I purchased in the past year. Most notably all of my Odyssey Bookshop First Edition selections. I also had some time off from work and visited friends. Each friend I saw gave me at least one book to read. Sharing books you love with people you care about really is the best.

Little by Edward Carey is a delightful historical fiction novel about the origin of Madam Tussaud. Madam Tussaud left conflicting information about herself. Carey creates a lovely tale about how he imagined her life was. Note: This was an Odyssey Bookshop First Edition Selection

Girl Wash Your Face– Everyone loves it. I did not. She did have some interesting takes but some of them were wildly off. I find the origin story of her and her husband to be the most disturbing. Look for my blog post later this month about it.

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty – This is my book club’s February selection and it was GOOD. Moriarty pokes fun at the wellness industry showing how crazy it can be but you can also see yourself in any one of the characters. Or at least I can.

It was a wild January and I’m looking forward to a more relaxing February. What did you read in January?
