I‘m really digging this YA “nonfiction” book about Mary Shelley‘s life.

Oof. She did not have it easy. 🧟‍♂️⚡️

Calypso | David Sedaris
post image

“I felt betrayed, the way you do when you discover that your cat has a secret secondary life and is being fed by neighbors who call him something stupid like Calypso. Worse is that he loves them as much as he loves you, which is to say not at all, really. The entire relationship has been your own invention.”

I have Psalm for the Wild-Built on my Kindle, but saw this at the library and it was kinda short looking and had good reviews so though I‘d give it a shot. Looks like the characters can take supplements and live on hostile planets, for some reason I read that and was like COOL I NEED 2 READ IMMEDIATELY ??

Shit, Actually | Lindy West

Also started this one by Lindy West. A collection of essays where Lindy “rewatch[es] successful movies from the past to see how they hold up to our shifting modern sensibilities.” She rates movies on a scale of 1 out of 10 dvds of The Fugitive, whereas The Fugitive is rated 13 dvds out of 10 dvds of The Fugitive.

This book is the authors debut and it‘s really good. Raj is on the verge of getting kicked off his elite tennis club after saying something beyond cringey and inappropriate while interviewing prospective members. Only so many people could pull off writing the protagonist‘s “faux pas” as well as Pandya does. Raj is a fully fleshed out, woeful character that I can‘t help but root for.

Harvard, determined to avoid bad publicity, thwarts a police investigation, protects the professor and silences the press. It‘s as if the murder never happened.” via New York Times

I thought this book was released in 2005 bc the cover was a little corny, but it‘s from 2020! There are some terrible jokes in here but I died laughing in Chapter 2 (still reading, only on Chapter 3, so could keep going or could fall flat, who knows). For now I am very happy with this checkout from the library. Spill the tea plz ☕️

My current read is very interesting and Matt Parker does a great job of taking the math out of the math talk. Every few pages are packed with real world examples of humans mistakenly applying math (or maybe math getting the last laugh?). Fun read. I‘ll pick it up later though because Teddy needs the lumbar support for right now. #catcuddles

Young, beautiful sister murders men. Older sister is a bit more reserved (also a nurse!) & helps the younger one clean up the mess. Set in Lagos, Nigeria.

We don‘t get all the WHYs, but there‘s enough there to guess. The author does a great job of showing and not telling in terms of the sisters‘ dynamic, police corruption, women/men & power, etc. The chapters are short and punchy, the book moves fast.

I love how unaware she is of her privilege. Somehow grew up very very backwoods and poor but was living in LA when she was 19 and immediately got a job at Miramax? Sure, Jan.

I‘ve checked this book out multiple times and have never started reading, but turns out the audiobook is like 4.5 hours and I need a new audiobook so I‘m ACTUALLY READING IT THIS TIME.

Do you ever check out too many books at the library and have to return them before you even crack the cover?

MallenNC Yes that happens to me all the time! Also, coincidentally I have The Mercies out from my library right now. (edited) 1y
LiteraryinLawrence For sure! 1y
ErinSBecker I like to watch and because internet were both great reads! Definitely worth checking out again in the future. 1y

I actually didn‘t like World War Z (🙈), but this one is going good!

effani Interesting! I also didn't like WWZ all that well so wasn't planning to pick this up, but maybe I shouldn't be so quick to judge. 1y
nikirtehsuxlol @effani I think what makes this one a bit more palatable is that it is focused on one community and person; I felt WWZ was too scattered. I also have a coworker who is really into Bigfoot so he keeps asking me about the book 😅 1y

My Dark Vanessa | Kate Elizabeth Russell

Audiobook is read by Grace Gummer, Meryl Streep‘s daughter. She read young Vanessa in one go and then older Vanessa, and you can tell while listening! The author did a really good job with finding a realistic voice for a teenage girl, trauma, PTSD, etc. not an easy listen though.

Mehso-so

I thought it‘d be a bit more “important” than rich teens doing drugs and having crushes on poor people but I‘d probably give the 2nd book a whirl.
