At the end of last year, on a Facebook book group, Lisa asked what everyone’s favourite books were of the year. I could not for the life of me remember what I’d read. I don’t read as much as I’d like. Andy and I went away for one night last weekend, and one of the things I was most excited about was uninterrupted reading time.
This is so I remember at the end of this year, with somewhat arbitrary scoring, and my ever so insightful reviews:
MaddAddam – Margaret Atwood ****
Enjoyed this. Not as much as Oryx and Crake. Was very glad of the recap at the beginning. This should happen more often.
Eleanor and Park – Rainbow Rowell **
I wasn’t in to this. But then, I’m not 14. It’s not really for me, although I really enjoyed Fangirl.
Yes Please – Amy Poehler ***
I’m just finishing this off. I’m not massively in to this either. Bit of a mish mash, lots about people I don’t know or really care about, although I would like to be friends with her. Would prefer to read Leslie Knope’s memoir.
