I thought it would be fun to do quick reviews of what I read each month this year. Let’s see how long I keep it up.


 

Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein

I honestly had no previous knowledge of Carrie Brownstein’s life, so this was a surprise. Enjoyed how open it felt.

4/5 stars


Nerd Do Well by Simon Pegg

Hilarious and nerdy, this autobiography includes interludes of fanfiction.

4/5 stars


Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsberg by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik

Packed with info and artwork, this bio on Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a must-read.

5/5 stars


People I want to Punch in the Throat: Competitive Crafters, Drop-Off Despots and Other Suburban Scourges by Jen Mann

Funny shorts on life as a suburban mom. Didn’t think I’d like it since I hate kids, but the author is just as cynical as I am.

4/5 stars


Mysteries of Udolpho by Ann Radcliffe

Had to read it for book club. I dare you to find one chapter where someone isn’t crying.

2/5 stars


Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher

Heartfelt hilarity with Carrie’s crass voice dancing vividly throughout. Read this as we wait for her next book.

5/5 stars


What Would Lizzy Bennet Do by Katie Oliver

Interesting Austenesque story. Not bad for a beach read.

3/5 stars


Strike! by Larry Dane Brimner

Easy read for anyone who wants an intro to the farmworker movement.

3/5 stars


Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

Gag. Two people love to hate each other and drive everyone else into ruin for kicks.

3/5 stars


Star Wars: Ships of the Galaxy by Benjamin Harper

For kids, but a good introduction to the main ships in the Star Wars films.

2/5 stars


Star Wars: The Force Awakens Incredible Cross-Section by Jason Fry

Glorious photos with info about the characters, locations and ships in the newest Star Wars film.

3/5 stars


Luke Skywalker Can’t Read: And Other Geeky Truths by Ryan Britt

Geekery reaches its peak in this collection of shorts ranging from sharp studies of genre to amusing observations.

5/5 stars


Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary by Pablo Hidalgo

Filled with great details about The Force Awakens. I loved that we got a chance to learn all the random things about main characters and background folks.

4/5 stars


 

The Perfect Weapon by Delilah S. Dawson

READ. THIS. SHORT. It focuses on Bazine Netal, a character we see for all of five seconds in TFA.

5/5 stars


 

Uprooted by Naomi Novik

I’ve been single-handedly promoting this book every since finishing it. A fairytale for adults who adore a good story with amazing ladies.

5/5 stars


Star Wars, Vol. 1: Skywalker Strikes by Jason Aaron

Just reading to fill the void while we wait for the next Star Wars film.

4/5 stars
