Please thank Sam for reminding me to do this. It’s been a crazy week and I was a little all over the place. But I’m absolutely pumped for the upcoming readathon (see more about it and sign up here) that we’re doing. I’ve already scoped some twitter time to spend with all of you and finally chosen my books. fun fact most of these book fit multiple categories!
- Aya by Marguerite Abouet, Clément Oubrerie , Alisia Grace Chase, Helge Dascher ,Tom Devlin
- Unearthed by Amie Kaufman – Sam and Linz both enjoyed this book, and it’s been on my tbr for over a year so I figured this would be the perfect time to finally dig it out! Our lovely Linz wrote a review for this one here. I will be enjoying Whiskey, except that I don’t like Whiskey… It’ll probably be a Malibu rum drink for me on this one.
- The Birth of the Pill by Jonathan Eig – Oh my weird love of random non-fiction books. I bought this one so long ago that I don’t really remember exactly what it is about but I remember my excitement. This will be my non-fiction Irish Coffee. Definitely going to make some fun-ass coffee.
So, I’m trying to set realistic boundaries on this one because reading three books in a week might be a little over my limits… But I’ve always been good at ignoring limits where books are concerned so have two extras
4. Kept: A Comedy of Sex and Manners by Euny Hong – From the title alone I’m pretty sure this is going to be my fireball option. I haven’t read anything from this author before but this line from the summary has be sold: “And perhaps more startlingly: are courtesans nothing more than prostitutes in Prada?” Does anyone hear Shots Shots Shots by LMFAO in the background?
5. And I Darken by Kiersten White – mmm female Vlad the Impaler. Sam enjoyed this book (drunk review here), and her recommendations are perfect about 99% of the time. This is gonna be my Moscow Mule because it’s my understanding that Vlad the Impaler wasn’t in the US… feel free to let me know if I’m wrong. (She also reviewed book 2)
