It’s that time again. I hope everybody is defeating the January blues.
February finds me unemployed again but oddly optimistic as I hunt for my fifth job in the past six months.
This month I reviewed:
Feelings: A light contemporary that takes on some heavy themes. It’s sneaky feminism at its best.
Feelings: Marry me, Thorne?
Feelings: Perfection, basically.
Feelings: A book about autism and siblings that I actually liked. I wish this had been out when I was in my teens.
Feelings: I can see this one leading to many a feminist awakening.
Feelings: It is possible to laugh your way through the darkness.
I also read:
Mosquitoland – David Arnold
Vivian Versus America – Katie Coyle
