Reading List 10

October, 2015

The Souls of Black Folk (W.E.B. Du Bois) - A quote from Craig Mod sums up how I feel after approaching this book for the first time: "To read a book once is to know it in passing. To read it over and over is to become confidants."

Citizen: An American Lyric (Claudia Rankine) - Beautiful and devastating. You can feel your throat close as if you are experiencing those moments in real time.

Eileen (Ottessa Moshfegh) - An unlikable narrator is usually a showstopper, but I still found myself quickly drawn into and finishing this book.

The Rover (Drew Magary) - A fun little story that toes the line between delusion and wanting to believe.

We Should All Be Feminists (Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie) - Essential reading on the importance of gender equality and why we're not there yet.

Imitation (Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie) - While I enjoyed parts, overall it fell a little flat. For a short story, some parts seemed long.

Currently reading

A Little Life (Hanya Yanagihara) - I looove this book so far, but it's long. Once I finish I'll have more thoughts.

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory (Caitlin Doughty)
