16. Read A Year of Biblical Womanhood. It’s easier than undertaking the adventure myself, it seems.
A Twitter-inspired look at books I’ve been reading recently. (And here’s what I read last month.) What’s on your bookshelf these days?
A Year of Biblical Womanhood / Rachel Held Evans
Checking this one off my 33 Before 33 list. As a regular reader of Rachel’s blog, this felt familiar and enjoyable. I appreciate her honesty, wit and love for scripture.
Someday, Someday Maybe / Lauren Graham
Franny navigates the pursuit of her heart and dreams in New York City. Charming, quirky, and as delightful as I had hoped Graham’s novel would be. An easy, breezy read.
The Slap / Christos Tsiolkas
I should have read a few more review of this one first. I was hoping for an interesting look at humanity and society with sympathetic, likable characters. Nope. Despite renewing the book to allow myself more time, I couldn’t bring myself to finish it.
Admission / Jean Hanff Korelitz
A book that inspired a Tina Fey + Paul Rudd movie? YES. But, NO. You guys, I couldn’t even get through 3 chapters. Life is too short to finish boring books.
Burial Rites / Hannah Kent
Dark and stormy and beautifully literary telling of a true story, set on the stark landscape of Iceland. Haunting and eery, this book contained zero humor but was so, SO strangely enjoyable to read.
