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.
Nerd Do Well by Simon Pegg
Hilarious and nerdy, this autobiography includes interludes of fanfiction.
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.
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.
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.
Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher
Heartfelt hilarity with Carrie’s crass voice dancing vividly throughout. Read this as we wait for her next book.
What Would Lizzy Bennet Do by Katie Oliver
Interesting Austenesque story. Not bad for a beach read.
Strike! by Larry Dane Brimner
Easy read for anyone who wants an intro to the farmworker movement.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
Gag. Two people love to hate each other and drive everyone else into ruin for kicks.
Star Wars: Ships of the Galaxy by Benjamin Harper
For kids, but a good introduction to the main ships in the Star Wars films.
Glorious photos with info about the characters, locations and ships in the newest Star Wars film.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Star Wars, Vol. 1: Skywalker Strikes by Jason Aaron
Just reading to fill the void while we wait for the next Star Wars film.
