I‘m almost halfway through this and enjoying it enough to speed through. The mixed reviews have me intrigued about the ending.

Steve Coll‘s books are always interesting and thoroughly researched. This one is no different. I was only disappointed that I learned less about Pakistan‘s ISI than I expected from the title. The subtitle more accurately describes the book.

The Power | Naomi Alderman
Pickpick

The Power was one of the best books I read this year! To me, the book makes a statement about power itself, not specifically about what would happen if women had power. The last pages of the book demonstrate this. Read to the end! I suspect this book is better in print than audio but I didn‘t try audio so that‘s just a hunch.

I enjoyed this during the tropical depression portion of Florence. This is an interesting story about a family facing real problems. The characters were realistic to me and the scene setting was done well. #NetGalley #ARC

This was a good overview of the history of identity politics with suggestions for how to move in a positive direction from here.

Received an ARC of #Identity from #Netgalley. So far it‘s a great dose of political philosophy that I‘ve been missing. I can‘t wait to keep reading this timely analysis.

I‘m loving listening to this on audio. I especially loved his rant on passive voice. The no-nonsense tone is great.

RaimeyGallant Does he narrate? 2y
3njennn Yes! It‘s like you‘re having a conversation with him except he‘s doing all the talking! 2y

Another excellent passage about sexism. Still so relevant.

Came across this amazing message for women that begins on this page, but the point spans multiple pages so it is difficult to capture in a picture. This insight from the 80s remains true today.

Middlesex: A Novel | Jeffrey Eugenides

I was listening to this on audio as I recovered from LASIK surgery. It got me through the first hours. Good read!

This is the first book I‘ve been reading since my LASIK surgery a few days ago. So exciting!

I read this with a book club. I didn‘t find it as suspenseful as I hoped it would be. This isn‘t my usual genre but I read thrillers sometimes and I consider this one about average among the others I‘ve read.

Doing a read your shelves challenge this year so I‘m finally getting around to this ebook I bought when I first got a kindle five years ago. It‘s about time! It‘s a good read as of two chapters in.

I‘m about a third of the way through this and only finding it so-so. I‘m not enjoying the 90s nostalgia, it feels forced.

Milan Kundera is quickly becoming a favorite author for me. This was the second book of his I read and I loved them both.

This was the worst book I tried to read in 2017. I picked it up for a book club and couldn‘t finish it, which is a rarity for me.

This was the best nonfiction book I read in 2017. It‘s a history book as much as a biography and I can‘t wait for volume 2.

This was a funny read, which I did not expect. I heard about it on the What Should I Read Next? podcast and I‘m glad I picked it up. It was a good vacation read.

This book discussed many issues women face in the work place and presented ideas for how to handle them. What I liked most about it was that the authors understood that there are no one-size-fits-all solutions to any of these problems. They discussed the issues from multiple perspectives and always acknowledged that each of us has to find the approach that works for us.

Lincoln in the Bardo | George Saunders

I heard good things about the audio version and I‘m glad I got it. I thought this was an especially good way to do historical fiction. It takes a little time to understand what is happening in this book, but once I caught on, I was impressed.

I‘m on page 766 and have been enjoying the read so far. I don‘t need action and there hasn‘t been any for a while, so I‘ve been enjoying the social commentary.
