May 2018 Wrap-Up

Books Read:

  • Quiet Rumours edited by Dark Star Collective. 5/5 stars, review.
  • St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves. 2/5, review.
  • Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. 3/5, review.
  • The Summer Children by Dot Hutchison. 4/5 stars, review.
  • Borne by Jeff VanderMeer3/5 stars, review.
  • Unwifeable by Mandy Stadtmiller. 3/5 stars, review.

Books DNF’d:

  • Girls Burn Brighter by Shobha Rao. I cared about the characters a lot, but the plot just wasn’t doing it for me and I felt like I was just sad for no reason.
  • Devils Unto Dust by Emma Berquist. Everything felt really rushed at the start and I wasn’t getting invested in the plot or the characters.
  • Never Stop Walking by Christina Rickardsson. Just wasn’t getting invested like I wanted to.
  • History of Violence by Édouard Louis. The writing style didn’t work well with me.
  • Asperger’s Children by Edith Sheffer. Unfortunately this was a lot more dry and dense than I was expecting and I couldn’t really get through it, even though the content seemed important.

    1. Yeah I mean I didn’t dislike it and there was some good humor but I just felt meh about it. I also really didn’t like the book and even though the movie was better, it kind of colored that
