Marcia is Amused.

Nov 05 2012
What I read in October:
The Book of Joe by Jonathan Tropper
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
This is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
Dare Me by Megan Abbott
A Better Angel by Chris Adrian
Witchy Witchy by Penelope King
Kiss the Crystal Sun by Penelope King
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Boat of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente
The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valente
This was a pretty fantastic month.
Y/A Books: I’m in love with the Fairyland books by Catherynne M. Valente despite the spelling of her first name. They’re for younger kids, more middle school than high school (No romance, lots of fantastic adventure. Felt very Roald Dahl.). Despite the abominable cover art the Penelope King books, which I bought for a song on Amazon, were interesting. Dare Me (suggested by Mabel) was a high school drama variation, focused on cheerleaders. So interesting, but the one that really got high school right this month was Before I Fall. Lauren Oliver wrote fantastic books before Delirium, guys!
Non-Y/A: The Diaz is AMAZING, I thought Sharp Objects was fantastically woven and would recommend it, but I didn’t care for Dark Objects. The Book of Joe might be my favorite Jonathan Tropper, and oh dear god, I so love Chris Adrian’s sick twisted mind.
GoodReads says I’m 13 books ahead of my challenge to read 100 books in 2012, 96 so far. Be my friend there. I write actual reviews of every book I read.
Page stats: I’ve screwed these up as I’ve already read two books this month and I haven’t calculated anything, but it’s MANY. Blame Sandy for getting rid of this fun (at least to me) statistic.
