I can’t do it anymore! I have gotten so bad about blogging about the books I read. I’m sure it isn’t great for my writing practice to stop thinking so analytically about what I read, but I just am going to give in for now and say that it’s going to be this way. I do depend on this blog to know and remember what I read, though, so I am still going to try to keep track. Here’s what I’ve tackled since January 1st:

The Turner House by Angela Flournoy

The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing by Mira Jacob

The Unfortunates by Sophie McManus

All Our Puny Sorrows by Miriam Toews

Our Andromeda by Brenda Shaughnessy

and I’m currently reading Killing and Dying by Adrian Tomine.

I either liked or really loved all of these books, I’m happy to report. The one that blew my f-ing mind was All Our Puny Sorrows, though. Miriam Toews can write a sentence and land a line like no other. I should probably spend the next six months reading all of her other novels, but I have a graphic short story collection to finish…
